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.

No More Rain

We got hit pretty good last night with rain. I think it rained hard all night. I say think because I finally put earplugs in to get some sleep because it was pounding so hard on top of the motorhome. There was a lot of flooding here in San Diego County.

This is a photo of Qualcomm Stadium where the San Diego Chargers play. The Chargers aren’t playing but they do have to get it cleaned up for the Poinsettia Bowl game tomorrow night (good luck). Tomorrow we should see some sun. It is supposed to be partly sunny and cool. Hopefully I can get things cleaned up a bit around here. The next rain will come Friday night but should only be a drizzle.

I guess it is raining just as hard in Havasu. Our neighbor says the walking path in front of our property has turned into a river and the 9th golf hole sand trap just beyond the path is now a lake. Susan and I have seen that happen during the summer monsoons but since our neighbors head north for summer this is new to them.

Since the rains were off and on all day today, Susan and Landen spent the day baking goodies.

This is pretty much a tradition with Landen since we have been fulltiming and coming back for Christmas.
