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.

They should be ashamed

I am talking about the cookie company that supplies the cookies for the Girl Scout cookie sales. I just read an article in the local paper here in Havasu that states the girl scouts sold a record 41,724 boxes of cookies this year. That came to a total of $166,896.00. Now that is not what the Girl Scouts got. They only got a mear $16,689.60, 10% of all sales. In other words, the Girl Scouts only get 40 cents for every $4.00 box of cookies. The cookie company gets $3.60 for a box of cookies! I can buy a box for less at Walmart and that’s after Walmart gets their profit. They should be ashamed getting these little girls to make the big profits for them! I remember asking my brother how much my nieces Scout Troop gets per box and he said about $0.50 a box. I wrote the scout troop a check for $20 and told them to forget the cookies.
