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.

Still fighting mice

Last night we were awaken to the sound of another mouse in the walls. I have not figured out where they are getting in. I have placed traps at all the places I think they would enter and none have caught a mouse. The ones inside the motorhome however have seen a lot of action. After banging on the wall last night to chase the mouse out, I checked the traps inside the motorhome. One was occupied. I dumped the mouse and reset the trap and went back to bed. Later in the night I heard another trap go off. Sure enough we got another. That makes 5 total in the 2 months we have been back. So far they haven’t got into anything and have caused no damage. We still don’t want them around. I guess the good thing, we have had mice where others here have seen scorpions and rattle snakes.
