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.

Show’s over, time to go

We folded up our display and closed up the booth today and are ready to head back to Havasu tomorrow. I am sure glad we did this with 2 other couples because 4 hours a day is enough to sit there and answer questions. It also gave us time to explore the area.

This is a picture of our display. We didn’t get any pictures of us at the booth. This is one of the other couples we went with.

Some of the coaches left today. Hopefully it won’t be too much of a hassle to get out of here tomorrow.

I met a piece of Havasu history today. Back in 1963 Robert McCulloch, Bought 26 square miles of land at the shores of Lake Havasu. McCulloch had purchased 11 Lockheed Electras, and formed McCulloch International Airlines, to fly in prospective land buyers from all over the country. Well today I met one of the original pilots from McCulloch International Airlines. He flew people in from Chicago. He thought at the time that McCulloch was crazy because all Lake Havasu City was at the time was 26 square miles of sand.
