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.

Paula’s Pancake House

Whenever going up or coming down the California coast we always stop near the Danish town Solvang so we can stop at Paula’s Pancake House for breakfast. I always get the Danish Pancakes, YUM.

Apparently a lot of others feel the same as us about the quality of their food and service because there was a crowed at Paula’s and none of the others. After breakfast we strolled the town of Solvang. Heading back to the motorhome we stopped by the Ostrich Farm so Landen could feed the Ostrich. These guys were a little intimidating because of their size and aggressiveness.

Landen fed them with caution. I was curious what an $88 campsite looked like so we took a drive through Flying Flags Campground. The sites are nice but $88… I don’t think so. They basically put in doublewide sites so they only have ½ the sites they used to. But they charge more than twice as before so in theory they should be making the same money with ½ the people. The problem I saw was there was a lot of empty sites. One thing I did notice is the $30 dry camp section was full when there used to be only a few tent campers there. I remember we used to have to reserve well in advance to get a site. If we did want to get a site now we probably wouldn’t need reservations.
