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.

Mouse problems

No this time it wasn’t the 4 legged critters but the 2 button one. Suddenly it appeared my computer froze up. What actually happened is, it encountered a mouse problem. I finally got into my system restore and restored to an earlier point. It is very hard to navigate around the computer using just the keyboard if you are not used to it. That didn’t help so after a bit of fumbling around I got into my virus scanner and managed to run a full system scan. It took me nearly an hour (it takes a while to do a full system scan) to realize it was not a virus but acted like I was constantly holding down a mouse button. After the virus scan, which came up clean by the way, I shut down the computer and pried ‘er open. Everything looked OK at the moment except the dirt under the keyboard and the dirt that fell out of the keyboard when I tapped it. I brushed and vacuumed up all the dirt and took another look around. This time I noticed the keyboard connector was a bit askew in its socket. I figured I did it while handling the keyboard. After reseating it I thought I might do the same to the mouse connector. Now when I turned on the computer all was fine so back together it went. Still not sure if it was the dirt or the connectors but all seem well now.
