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.

What happens in Vegas

I can’t really say what I have been doing here in Las Vegas for the last few days. You know what they say, What happens in Vegas stays in Vegas. Well, to tell you the truth, I haven’t done any thing I can't mention. Sunday I took Susan to the Airport. Yesterday I hung out on the Strip for a while. I am a people watcher and the Vegas strip is a good place for that. Since I was by myself I didn’t feel a need to do anything or see anything interesting so I just sat for a while and watched the people go by wondering where they are from and why they are here. Here are a few photos I took.

Today was a real change in weather. The temps have been real comfortable in the 70s here and today was the same however the winds were blowing at around 30 mph with 60 mph gusts. I decided it was a good day to stay out of the wind and shampoo the carpet in the motorhome. The wind is supposed to subside a bit tomorrow to about 15 mph but instead of the 70 degree temps it will only be in the mid 50s. What a change. For the rest of the week though, the wind is going away and the temps will be back up in the high 70s. Just right for NASCAR weekend.
