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.

After the neighbors left there was no one to take care of their gardenias. I noticed they were dieing off so I brought them over to our place and trimmed off all the dead growth.

Now it looks like a Bonsai Gardenia. Kind of cool looking.


  1. Now how cool are you - super nice of you to safe your neighbors prize plant (lol sorry I feel it's a prize plant). You can be my neighbor anytime - you rock!!


  2. Yeah, I’m kind of like the humane society of plants around here. A lot of the Snowbirds drop them off with me when they migrate back north for the summer. Others just leave them to die and I rescue them.

  3. Thank you for the Smile this morning.

  4. Not that I.M. the expert or nuthin', but... if it looks like a geranium and it smells like a geranium, ain't it likely to be a geranium?
