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.

Craigslist is a winner

So I decided to yank the 12V battery from my golf cart. I could never figure out why the golf cart had a separate 12V battery just for the radio. The 12V lights and horn are connected to 2 of the 6V batteries so why not the radio. Every time the 12V battery needed charging I had to brake out my 12V charger and charge it separate from the golf cart batteries.

The battery box I pulled out looked like it might be something someone might want. I looked it up on the internet and they sell for $60 new. So I posted it on Craigslist for $20. Within about 30 minutes I got a call. The guy came out and not only took the battery box but the 10 year old battery along with it.

Less that an hour from placing the ad and it was gone.

How does that happen? Do these guys sit around all day monitoring Craigslist for stuff to buy? I couldn’t believe how fast I got the call.

Now I’m looking around for more stuff to sell.
