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.

This weekend was the first annual Balloon Festival in Lake Havasu City. Now this is a tricky proposition since the wind seems to blow a lot here at the lake. The balloonists like to fly in 3 to 7 mph winds. Any more and it is too dangerous. Unfortunately this weekend was an unusually windy one. Fridays mass assent was canceled and with 30 mph gusts today they didn’t even think about it.

Saturday morning however was perfect. The balloons took off around 8:00a and after an hour had to call it quits because the winds increased, but at least they got to fly.

One balloon had to be rescued because it drifted over to the California side of the lake. Luckily they were able to bring it down on the California shore and were ably to be towed back to Havasu by boat. They even did a couple of splash and goes on the way back for the fun of it. I heard all in all it was a success and they are looking forward to next year.


  1. Air Balloons show is always fascinating ,we attended on in New Mexico and loved the night show when they lighted the balloons-it was an outstanding event.

  2. Really useful info about the air balloons.Thanks
