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.

The bomb house is screwing us up

We are heading for California on Thursday. Some of you probably don’t know but there is a house along our route that was used as a bomb factory. They are planning to burn the house down. The problem is they have put it off until Thursday and they will be closing off a portion of the freeway I planned to go through. This only means we will have to take a slightly different route. Not too much of a big deal except it will extend our travel a bit and the traffic will probably be a mess.

Tonight was the golf cart parade here in the resort. There were 14 carts involved. We had a great time.

Who won the best of the parade? We didn’t. We got 2nd place this year.

    They're supposed to burn that house between 9 and noon...you may want to get just north of here and wait it out. Freeway should be opened back up by early afternoon. Traffic will be one big parking lot on ALL the routes. Of course, they have no idea what they're doing. They may just blow up the entire freeway!
