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.

Ok Ok

I have been getting a little flack from some of our readers because It has been some time since I have updated our website. Well here is the update.
We have, well, I have been busy, busy polishing the motorhome. I noticed I have let it go too long and was beginning to pick up some oxidation on the drivers side so I got out the polish and gave it a go on a spot. Huh, Not bad, so I continued on. I don’t want to burn myself out so I have been at it for about 10 days now doing a little each day. It still is tough going though. It is getting easier because I am now over to the passenger side, which is not as bad as the driver side. Still a lot of work though! In the mean time I have been fixing and painting a few things around our lot here in the resort.
Most of our neighbors have shown up for the winter and we have been doing dinners hear and there along with going out to dinner in town. Our friends next door brought some friends with them when they came back and we have all been showing them the sights in the area. Susan went on a 5 mile hike the other day that just about kicked her butt. The 5 miles wasn’t a problem but it was up and down hills and through streams.

Here are a few photos I have taken in the last few weeks.

  1. Hi Dan,
    The last photo of the sunset(?) is beautiful.

  2. I used to think nice sunsets only happen over the Ocean until I came here.
