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.

More floods tonight

The rains are back and there is more flooding in town. Tonight the storm is over us also. We are getting very heavy rain here at the park. I haven’t gone outside but by looking out the windows it appears everything is intact although there is a lot of water flowing down the roads. There is lots of lightning and thunder and of course our satellite TV is going in and out as the signal tries to get through the moisture in the air. I am listing to the Havasu Police, Fire, And EMS on the internet and they are very busy.
Susan and I took a drive in town today and it looks like a hurricane went through. A lot of roads were blocked off due to washouts and LOTS of debris and rocks in the roads. Unfortunately there was one death last night when one car was swept into a wash. Two in the car got out OK but the third was swept away and found dead 2 miles down the wash.
We checked on our friend’s houses, which aren’t in town right now, and all was well. Looks like we will have to take another drive tomorrow to make sure they survived tonight’s storms as well.
There are a lot of videos on You Tube of the floods.
