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.

Sad but happy

As you might know, we bought a 2005 Saturn Vue during the summer.  We decided we didn’t need 2 cars so we put the Saturn SC2 up for sale.  I placed an ad on Craig’s List with no response.  Last night I reposted the ad again.  This morning before we even got out of bed we got a call.  I had just finished my morning coffee when he showed up with a fist full of 100 dollar bills.  About 30 minutes later he was driving off with our Saturn in tow behind his truck.  It was a bit sad to see it go away but we are glad it sold.  I told the guy I was sad and he said not to worry, he will take good care of it.  He even mentioned he wanted to fix the little things that needed attention.  I am glad it went to a good home.
