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.

No rain today

At least yet. It is 8:00p and the day has been rain free. There is plenty of moisture in the air though. It was, for the most part, an indoor day since the humidity was very high and uncomfortable. I can see out the windows that the thunderclouds are welling up again though. The weather says lightning, thunder and heavy rain until midnight but I kind of doubt it. Last nights rain was another bad one. There were more rescues in town and the streets got another dose of mud, rocks and debris. We got a dose of that one here at the resort. This morning I took a drive around to access the damage. We survived real well. The only real damage is the path through our common area. It is washed out in places and rutted pretty badly.
We took another drive into town to check on the houses we are watching today and they survived another one although the streets around them were near impassable. We did have to turn around on one street and find a different route. The bad weather should be all gone by tomorrow.
