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.

Joshua Tree National Park

We had most of the day off today since all we had to do was setup the display booth here at the rally. The exhibits don’t open until tomorrow so we took the opportunity to do some sight seeing.

The Joshua Tree National Park is near by, well 30 miles away, so we pack up the car with supplies and headed out with another couple.

We spent the whole day and about 120 miles cruising through the park.

We went in the south entrance and came out the west entrance. What a good time.

Susan and I grew up in this part of the country and have never been inside the park. I am glad we took the opportunity to do so. I will post more photos of the park on our Photo site when I have more time.

  1. We went there last year and loved it... I had never heard of a Joshua tree before then.
    Have fun & Travel Safe
