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.

Nice drive today

Today we moved from Salinas to Atascadero California. The drive was a pleasure, except for the brownery and trash. Brownery, as opposed to greenery. We have seen a lot of green during our journey through Montana, Wyoming, Idaho, Oregon, and northern California. But this part of California is brown. Not only that but the trash along the highway is obnoxious. Just no pride along their highways here. Other than that the drive was easy and smooth. No more curvy narrow roads. I put it in cruise control and just about could have tied down the steering wheel and gone back to have a cool one. It was a short drive, less than 2 hours Lee. We decided to stop at the Atascadero Elks Lodge instead of San Luis Obispo because they have sewer and 50 amps here and we are staying for 2 nights. It is about the same distance to Morro Bay where we plan to visit tomorrow.

  1. Hahaha... You knew I would check. I made reservations today to go to Gulf Shores Alabama. (Going to change the oil just kidding) It is 500 miles from home and I thought about you. But I am going to do 300 miles the first day and 200 the next. Course I am not a FULLTIMER.
