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.

No kid

We have no kid. Today we arrived at the end of the line for Landen’s summer travels. We are back in Vista California and Landen is back with his dad. We are missing him already. We will be here for a while though so we will be seeing more of him, and his sister too.

Today’s drive went surprisingly well. I was concerned about traffic but the traffic was light and the road was in better shape than I remember. It was a breeze. I did get a bit startled though when a trucker came up beside me with his exhaust brake on (apparently to get my attention) and hold up 2 fingers flashing the number 2 sign at me. I think he is a Kurt Bush (NASCAR) fan and saw the 48, Jimmie Johnson stuff in the back window of the motorhome. Kurt Bush has a little battle going with Jimmie right now. At least I think that’s what it was all about because I checked all my gauges and mirrors and couldn’t find a problem with the motorhome or car.

They are bugging me about Camp Hosting here at the Elks while we are here because their hosts are traveling right now. In fact we saw them when we were in Eureka California a couple weeks ago. I really don’t want to do it though. They offered me free rent for as long as I want to do it. Just not sure we are staying.


  1. Well the trucker could have been a Jamie McMurray fan and then you would have been confused... LoL.. Sorry the trip ended but boy have you got some awesome memories. Now is time to get back to relaxing. Ralph and Deb should be down there somewhere.

  2. Dan, who running the show down there? I was going to call Brenda this morning. We will be there thursday save me a good spot.

  3. Ralph, Brenda is traveling right now. There is a Co-Host that should be answering the phone. They are booked SOLID this weekend but there may be some cancellations. Worst case you may be able to park up in the parking lot.

  4. Lee, I think I saw the Jamie Mac trucker comming out of Salem, he showed me just 1 finger over and over again.

  5. Just another benefit of being an Elk right Dan? Hosting for free nights stays.
