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.

Boss called today

My boss called from home this evening and asked if we got nailed by heavy rain here at the resort. He said they got hit so hard on the south end of town that his pool overflowed. We got nothing but a little rain and a very close bolt of lightning and thunder that knocked out our power for a split second. We figured we were going to be hit next. Luckily it bypassed us. I called my boss back and he said the south end of town was chaos. The washes turned into rivers and flash floods washed cars off the roads. Cars were washed out of one of the restaurants parking lots in town. Earlier Landen asked if we could go out to dinner. I told him not tonight. After telling him about the restaurant parking lot he said that is were he wanted to go tonight. We dodged that one but there are more to come.
