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.

Potty touch

That’s what a co-worker of mine used to call it. You know, when everything you touch turns to KaKa. This seems to be what I got lately. Everything seems to be falling apart around here. Today’s was the humming bird feeder. After cleaning and refilling it I was screwing it back together and the neck of the GLASS bottle snapped off. Yes glass. The base is plastic and it won over the glass. I am trying to eliminate a few things on my To Do list but I’m afraid to touch anything. Ha! As I am typing this Susan looked out the window and noticed that two pictures fell off the patio wall and of course they broke.

We got the chairs back. Here is the before and after photos.

Hopefully they will last a bit longer than 2 years this time. The place that did them assured me this is better material than the last. I guess my next project is the chase lounges. I think I have decided to change the color so now I need to not only fine the right color vinyl but I have to find paint to match. I thought I found the right paint but after looking further into it I noticed it was for indoor use..Huh.

Got a mini air show today.

Four of these guys came over in formation and after passing over the airport they split off one by one then came around and landed. The airport is only about ¾ mile from us as the crow flies. Pretty cool!

It seems to refuse to cool down around here. Today was still 108 on my patio. At least it is under the 100-teens. I have been waiting for cooler weather to get some things done around here.
