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.

Uneventful Trip

Just the way I like it. We made it to our Daughters house in about 6 hours arriving at 2:00p. The trip went well and the car ran good. I haven’t had time to calculate the mileage yet but last trip out here we got 38 mpg in our Saturn SC2. I do know it cost more this time because of the price of gas. Last time it cost me $28 to do the 300 miles and this time the bill was $36. We paid $3.89 when we left Havasu Arizona and paid $4.25 here in San Diego California.
The weather will take some getting used to. It was around 85 degrees at 8:00a in Havasu and was in the high 60s at 2:00p when we arrived here. Good thing I packed some long pants and tennis. No more shorts and flip flops for a while.
I will have to cruise the beach while I am here. I do miss the beach.
