We just arrived in Havasu. It is about 8:30p and dark outside. I wasn’t even sure the lights on the motorhome worked until now. I never drive at night. I pulled over about 1.5 hours from here to get out and checked all the lights. Man! This thing with the car attached and all lit up looks like a Christmas tree. Everything worked just fine. The reason we arrived so late is because we took the motorhome in to the shop for a brake recall at 6:30a this morning and didn’t get it back until 2:30p California time. Then we had a 4.5 hour drive ahead of us. I was hoping to get out of the shop by noon but you know how that goes. The recall notice said it was a 3 hour job. 7 hours later the motorhome was done. We needed to get back here today because there is another storm coming in and I would rather drive 2 hours in the dark than 4.5 hours in a storm. So giving time out for breakfast, lunch and cruising the mall I spent about 11 hours driving today. Fortunately my site here in Havasu is a pull in site so when we arrived I just pulled in, car attached, and shut it down for the night. I will get it setup properly tomorrow…between rain showers.
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.

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.
