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.

Another great ride

Today we put about 80 miles on the Razors. We headed out about 10:30a and arrived back about 5:00p. It was a long dirty ride but it sure beats a day at work.

We rode over to Golden Shores for lunch then headed back on a different route. The trails are getting pretty worn and “washboard” since they have been rode hard all winter. We need a good summer monsoon rain to smooth them out again.

I have lost interest in my Blog. I really do need to get back into it. It’s not that I am doing nothing or there is nothing going on around here, quite the opposite. Susan and I were invited on a boat ride a few weeks back.

It was really nice to get out on the water again even though the water was way too cold yet to get wet.

I got a knock on the door the other day from a friend that wanted me to join them on a Razor ride. I accepted and had only 30 minutes to get ready.

There was 7 Razors and we tailored them up to Oatman and rode from there.

I came across my first Gila Monster in the wild. Tomorrow we are heading out again on the razors.

The other day I got over $400 worth of tires for the Saturn for a little over $160. Since the odometer on the Saturn showed I didn’t get my 50,000 miles from the tires, they prorated them. I didn’t mention the thousands of miles I towed it behind the motorhome.

The weather is getting warm here in Havasu and soon it will be getting hot. All the flowers are blooming including my cactus.

Looking good. The down side is since I work part time here at the resort that means there are hundreds of plants that are starting to grow and already need some trimming. I see a lot of work coming.

We got a call from the California State Park wanting to know if we wanted to come out of retirement and Camp Host again for a couple of months this summer. We thought it over and decided we like to travel the summers and declined the offer. I think our Grandson wouldn’t mind either way because he likes both traveling and hanging at the beach where the host job was.

Well, hopefully I will be updating this Blog more often in the future.

What happens in Vegas

I can’t really say what I have been doing here in Las Vegas for the last few days. You know what they say, What happens in Vegas stays in Vegas. Well, to tell you the truth, I haven’t done any thing I can't mention. Sunday I took Susan to the Airport. Yesterday I hung out on the Strip for a while. I am a people watcher and the Vegas strip is a good place for that. Since I was by myself I didn’t feel a need to do anything or see anything interesting so I just sat for a while and watched the people go by wondering where they are from and why they are here. Here are a few photos I took.

Today was a real change in weather. The temps have been real comfortable in the 70s here and today was the same however the winds were blowing at around 30 mph with 60 mph gusts. I decided it was a good day to stay out of the wind and shampoo the carpet in the motorhome. The wind is supposed to subside a bit tomorrow to about 15 mph but instead of the 70 degree temps it will only be in the mid 50s. What a change. For the rest of the week though, the wind is going away and the temps will be back up in the high 70s. Just right for NASCAR weekend.

Wahoo! Back on the road

We finally got the motorhome back on the road again. We took off this morning about 11:00mst and arrived in Las Vegas 3 hours later. All the fixes I did from the last trip did well. The motorhome ran great even though we were bucking winds the whole way. Tomorrow I will put Susan on a plane heading for Orlando Florida and I will hang here until Friday when she gets back.
