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.

Went to Chloride today

Where is Chloride you might say? It is about 20 miles north of Kingman Arizona. What is in Chloride you might say? Not much! The big attraction in Chloride is the murals painted on the rocks, and

yard art.

Chloride is, as most towns around here, an old mining town. Most of the town has burned down in the past and there are very few original buildings left. It used to boast a population of around 2000 in its days. Now the population is more like 250. Roy Purcell was a miner in Chloride in 1966,

while there he painted murals on some boulders about a mile and a half outside of town.

The road to the murals is a bit rough. His work led to worldwide recognition, which launch him on a professional career that continues today. He returned to Chloride in 2006 to restore the murals after the desert sun took its toll.

  1. OK Chloride LQQKED interesting and you say there are 250 people there! What do they do for income? They don't work for the road department that's for sure.

  2. I enjoyed the slide show of Chloride very much.
