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.

New stuff

The new look
You may have noticed along with the new look of out site, there are no more ads. I never wanted to clutter up our site with ads but though, Hey if I can make a little money off this thing, why not. Turns out I did just that, made a “LITTLE” money, not enough to include them in the new look. So no more ads!

New ride
Remember the golf cart Susan decorated for the golf cart Christmas parade? Well it was offered to me for purchase.

The owners didn’t need it anymore and since I am in possession of it, they offered it to me at a fair price, so I bought it. It run good but needs a little work so I now have a project.

New computer
Susan has been wanting her own computer for quite some time now. Seems we both want to cruise the internet at the same time which is not possible with only one computer in the family. I use a MiFi card from Verizon, which is an aircard with a built in wireless router capable of handling 5 devices so we are OK there. I gave some though to buying a new computer for myself and giving her mine or buying her a new one. For what she uses it for we decided she might be happy with one of those 10” Netbooks.

So I did some research and came up with an Acer from Walmart. I missed out on the $198 Christmas special but still got a good deal.

  4. If Susan had her way, the cart would be painted just like Jimmie Johnson’s car. It ain’t gonna happen!
