Our New House

It was brought to my attention that we haven’t updated our Blog since 2013. Since we have become stagnant and haven’t really traveled for a while I didn’t have much of interest to post. Not that our life isn’t interesting, there just isn’t much RV Travel going on.

Well recently we have turned another page in our lives. We decided since we like our lifestyle so much that buying a house wasn’t in our plans. However we have pretty much outgrown the RV so…

We bought a Park Model home in the same resort where we have lived for the last 11 years in the motor home. If you are not familiar with a Park Model, it is a small 400 square foot manufactured home. Ours however is a bit more than a simple park model. First off ours is set in the ground so it is ground level, then a 200 square foot addition was added making it 600 square foot overall and the whole thing is stuccoed and the roof is tiled. There is also a 117 square foot building on the property, which serves as a laundry room and a shop. This building is attached to the house by a covered patio with outdoor kitchen. Along with the real residential appliances they topped it off with an air conditioner that can turn the house into a meat locker in the 120-degree Arizona summers. You can see more photos by clicking on the link in the left column.

I have added a link to the photos of our house HERE.

So, although we are keeping the motor home, it looks like we are not Fulltimers anymore.

Best wishes to all our readers and I hope your travels are as enjoyable as ours.

I will leave the Blog up because I know others enjoy reading about our travels.

Lights out

Remember that Service Engine Soon light I had on the Saturn? The one that came on 3 weeks ago? I was talking to my neighbor here at the Elks lodge about the light and he brought me a letter he received from the local Saturn dealer. It stated how they were one of the few dealers still in business and are ready to service our Saturn. I gave them a call. They answered and said they would read the codes for free. So off to the Saturn Dealer I went. I rounded the corner and what did I see, an empty building. It looked like a Ghost Town. The only thing missing was the tumbleweeds rolling through the parking lot. There was a good amount of trash blowing through the parking lot however indicating to me they have been MIA for quite sometime. As I drove by I said to myself, who did I talk to? So the second time around the block I pulled into the parking lot. Awe there is a note on the door. The Chevrolet dealer is now servicing Saturns. OK, off to the Chevy dealer I went. They were pretty cool. I pulled up and after explaining my predicament the guy was off and back with a code reader. Looks like a faulty gas cap he says and read off the codes. I wrote them down for future reference, he cleared the codes, turned off the light and off I went. At least if the light comes back on, I know where to start looking.
