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.

Met a web follower today

I always enjoy meeting the people that follow our Blog.  The other day one of our Work campers said there was someone inquiring about me.  They have been following our Blog and were in the resort and wanted to meet us.  Today they stopped by and we had a good conversation.  Unfortunately I was on the phone most of the time with my insurance company and was not too hospitable.  Maybe we can get together before Monday, when they leave, and talk some more.  From the short conversation we had, it sure sounds like they have been having a good time.  They left the northeast and have been visiting the National Parks of America.  They even took a loop up through parts of Canada.
The snowbirds have been arriving at the rate of a couple a day now.  The park is filling up and the parties have begun.  Thursday we started our weekly hikes.  Jolene, the leader, took part of the group around the “low road” and I took the more experienced hikers over the “high road”.  I really though I might have scared them a bit but they told me they really enjoyed it.

Today the weather turned from a very bright and sunny high 80s degree to a windy cool high 60s day.  It is amazing how much change there can be over night.  The weekend is going to be cool but the heat will be back next week.  I prefer HOT.


  1. Good to hear you are still alive down there!

    It was really a pleasure meeting you and Susan in person ;-)
    Please don't feel bad for being on the phone...that's what we get for just popping in!
    We really enjoyed our time in Lake Havasu and have decided that we too will become snow birds next winter. Charlie really loved the campground and wants to stay there from Jan-April of 2014. He doesn't want to bring the motorhome though, he wants to try to rent something there..if Susan's moms place doesn't sell maybe we could rent that ;-).
    When we were in Glacier NP we met this wonderful couple there..after talking with them for awhile we find out that they too have a spot at your resort , we enjoyed spending time with them while we were there..he took Charlie on his razor...THAT sealed the deal that we HAVE to stay there in the winter! Well I hope you guys have a wonderful holiday and a very Happy New Year!

    1. Sorry it took so long to post your comment. The software didn’t alert me that there were new comments. Glad you enjoyed your stay. It really is a nice place. A lot of people that come for a visit end up buying a lot. Have safe and fun travels and we will see you the next time through.
