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.

A month

Can you believe almost a month has gone by and no posts? Its just life as usual around here. Oh, Susan and I did have a birthday this month. Well we are getting ready to travel again. It’s about time! I have been itching to hit the road again. Susan got an invite to visit her cousin in Florida for a week and the nearest flight out is in Las Vegas. She thought I was just going to take her over in the car to save on fuel costs. Wrong! I suggested I put her on a plane and hangout in Vegas until she gets back. This will give me some seat time in the motorhome. Oh, Guess what? The weekend she gets back from Florida is NASCAR weekend in Vegas. How convenient. So the plan is to head for Vegas Saturday, Put her on the plan Sunday morning, pick her up on Friday and head on over to the track. We will be heading back to Havasu on Monday morning after the race weekend. I decided instead of staying at the track in a dirt field with no hookups for the week, I will stay at Sams Town RV park for the week. Cost is about the same for full hookups at Sams.

Thursday Hike

Today we hiked to a place here in Havasu called Window Rock. This was a bit difficult to get to and the 20+ mph winds didn’t help much.

As you can see though, we made it.

The view through the window to the desert valley beyond was cool. Once I got on the other side I spotted something I have never seen.

This is a photo of a honeycomb tucked in the rock. This is the first time I have ever seen a honey comb out in the open.
