Tomorrow bright and early we are heading to California to pickup our Grandson. Those that follow our Blog know we do this every summer when Landen gets out of school. He loves to hangout with Nana and Papa for the summer and travel with us. We plan to hang out here until after the fireworks on the 4th of July then take the motorhome on a short trip somewhere. Not sure where just yet but I’m thinking the Grand Canyon area. Landen wants to get back home by the first of August so he can spend some of the summer with his friends. I knew it wouldn’t be long before he wanted to spend summer with his friends and soon he might not even want to hang out with a couple of old folks like us. We need to take advantage of having him travel with us while we can. We are just going to take the car over to California because we are only staying for 4 days at our daughter’s house then head on back here to Havasu. It’s a whole lot cheaper fuel wise to take the car than the motorhome. Also while in California we will be picking up another car. We bought a 2005 Saturn Vue so we will have 2 cars coming back. If the Vue checks out OK we will sell the other car. I know the people that own the Vue and know how it’s been taken care of so I am sure it will be a great car.
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.
