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.

I knew that would happen

Today since it was about 110 degrees and 30% humidity I decided it was a good day to stay inside and search for the best online quote on Arizona auto insurance. Since they all require an address I know I will be getting tons of junk mail. Also they all required an email address so I was expecting tons of Junk Email. Also some required a phone number. Just after the first online quote I get a phone call from an agent. I politely told him, if I wanted to talk to an agent I would have called for a quote. Then the next call came in and I wasn’t so pleasant with this one. Then the next call, this one I just let go to voice mail. Finally I got smarter and started giving phony phone numbers. Of course my email box filled up real fast but that is OK because I want a record of the quotes anyway. I will either request to unsubscribe later or just block them. I’m not too worried about the junk mail because I got a cure that seems to work well. If they send me a post paid return envelope I write, “Please remove from mail list” on the order form and return it using their postage.
