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.

Settled in at the Elks

We got a bright and early start this morning and headed 15 miles up the road to the Elks Lodge. We had our Grandson stay with us over the weekend. He and Reese (our daughter’s dog) had a great time.

I was on alert on the trip to the Elks since I had a problem with the brakes on the last trip. I had absolutely no problems this trip. Good thing the next trip is to get the recall done.

I wasn’t here at the lodge more than a hour and I was already working. As you may know, I always jump in and help out around here when we stay. After finishing up the host handed me the key to one of the golf carts and said, you know where the tools are. It will give me something to do for the next 2 weeks.


  1. For the first time we had our Grand Daughter with us for a month,it was an outstanding pleasure for all sides and I know how you might feel.

  2. I love the picture of the "kids" sleeping in front of the fireplace! So cute!
    I like your new background too, but has Susan seen it? ;-)
    Take care
