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.

Pechanga RV Resort

This afternoon we moved from the Elks Lodge in Vista to the Pechanga Casino RV Resort. We have stayed here several times in the past and always liked the place. This time however we were a bit disappointed. They have a 2:00p check in however they do let you check in early if your site is open. The exception now is they charge you an extra $10 for that early check in. We chose to hang out at the Elks Lodge long enough to get us at Pechanga by 2:00p. For some reason they fell they need to lock up all the sewer connections at every site. The last time we were here they told us once we got setup to call the office and they would be right out to unlock the sewer, which they did. This time they said they would put us on the list for sewer unlocking. 3 hours later I had to head back up to the office to check on this so-called list. Finally we got hooked up. Also the price has gone up quite a bit here but we got a 3 for the price of 2 nights so it’s not so bad. For the price they are charging the place doesn’t seem to be as well maintained as before, it is still pretty nice though. They have free WiFi but apparently don’t like to give out the password unless you request it. I figure I would just use my Verizon connection, however since Verizon is slow here I requested their password. Turns out their WiFi is slower than my Verizon. Not only that but the way they have it setup, you have to enter the password every time you want to use it.

The weather here today was around 103. This is a good thing because it will prepare us for Havasu if we decide to head back there on Friday. It is still very hot in Havasu but we are anxious to get back and get things cleaned up and a few things fixed.

    They lock the sewer because they allow non-campers to dump at their dump station (for $17 - I stop on the way back from Fontana every time). Wouldn't be hard to pull into a site and dump if you looked like you were setting up camp...
