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.

Another trip to California

Tomorrow we are making another trip to California. No we are not taking the Saturn this time, nor are we taking the motorhome. We are traveling by boat. After talking to 7 different people at Verizon to get this new 4G MiFi card activation issue resolved, I finally got someone to help. Turns out I can’t activate the card here in Havasu because we are on an “extended network”. We need to be on the Verizon network on a Verizon tower. I suggested that to the prior 6 people but they said it didn’t matter. I figure if I can’t get my balance or update my roaming from here, then I surely can’t activate a Verizon device from here. So I got a couple of coupons out of the local paper and tomorrow Susan and I are going to take a free boat ride to the casino over on the California side of the lake where they have a Verizon tower. Hopefully from their we can activate the card and be good to go.
