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.

Craggy Wash

I went on a 3 hour hike today with a couple of others to a place here in Havasu called Craggy Wash.

This is on BLM (Bureau of Land Management) land where a lot of people head for some cheap camping. There is a small fee to dry camp out there in the desert. I think I will stick to the resort. I get a kick out of some of these people that just want to get away from the busy campgrounds and camp in the wide open desert,

yet most of them are all grouped together in a bunch out there. There are a couple that are truly out by them selves though. I got to admit, the solitude and scenery is desirable.

You really don’t want to get too close to this guy.

Looks like we may be getting ready to travel again. I know we have only been back in Havasu for less than 2 weeks but things come up. The resort is going to have a both at the upcoming FMCA rally in Indio CA and they are looking for volunteers to man the booth. 3 of us volunteered but there may be a catch. I surrendered my membership in the FMCA (Family Motor Coach Association) because there was no real benefit for us. Well I think only FMCA members are allowed to work the booths. We are looking into that. If it happens we will be traveling to Indio on Tuesday.


  1. Great area to escape the harsh winter.
    Take a look at my rig http://danyshula.blogspot.com/2011/01/winter-storage.html
    We are happy to be in a warm place by now and hope that when we pick it up in the spring it will be ready to roll....

  2. That’s a sad sight seeing your 5er covered in snow. I went back and added the photo of the flowering cactus to show that even the cacti are happy here. Hope you can get out soon.
