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.

Computer problems

I promised some pictures of the in-laws lot and 5th wheel. I have been slow at getting them because of computer problems. Anyway, here are a couple of photos

This one shows the nice yard they have with a big fountain. Unfortunately the owners didn’t disclose that the fountain leaks like a sieve. It’s an easy fix but I have been giving the realtor a hard time about it, just because.

This photo shows the position of the 5th wheel and why we needed the 5th wheel tug to get it in there. There was no way to drive it in with a truck unless you intended on not using the truck anymore. They have a nice big casita that is unfinished inside so they can finish it the way they want. They have decided to split it into 4 areas, a sitting room with TV, a nice bathroom, a utility room for washer, dryer, water softener, and water heater, and a shop. There is plenty of room for all.

Anyway back to the computer. I like to play around with settings and sometimes get myself into a fix. Usually it is no problem because if I screw everything up I simply use system restore to go back to a previous restore point. Well I did just that the other day and the system restore hung. It is very unadvised to shutdown the computer in the middle of a restore but I had no choice. Now I got some problems with missing or corrupt files. It still works but not quite right. I will get it fixed eventually.

Also, I just added photos to our photo site of the Big Boys Toy Show we went to last weekend here in Havasu.


  1. Your inlaws place looks pretty fancy! Gotta get that fountain working. Hope your computer problems are minor and you get them fixed. Nothing grinds at the nerves as a puter acting up.
    From the looks of the sunshine there your in a fortunate area. We just received another 8 inches of new snow on top of the already 12 inches. I'm sick of snow! Have a great weekend.

  2. Very nice place your inlaws have! Sounds perfect!
