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.

Race canceled

No not NASCAR. The Desert Storm Boat Race was canceled today and tomorrow because of high winds. The winds started up last night and rose to around 47 MPH today. Tomorrow it is supposed to calm down to around 25 MPH. Usually things get blown around pretty good here at the park during high winds. Car covers get blown away and patio furniture end up in the surrounding desert. I guess people have learned during the years because as I cruised around the resort I found nothing out of place. Anyway, even though the boat didn’t get to play they still plan to party. The airport reports full hangers from all the personal jets that came to town for the race. Yes, they not only have high powered boats and half million dollar trucks to pull them, they also have high dollar jets to fly them in and out. I think the only ones that are out of luck this weekend are the fuel stations that expected to sell lots of expensive high octane gas for the boats.

Unfortunately this is the first year for a while that I missed the Laughlin River Run. I say, “I missed” because Susan made a Laughlin trip with a few ladies the other day. Things just didn’t work out for me.
