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.

Every once in a while I get a kick in the pants from one of my website Followers for not updating the site.  I just got another the other day.  I will try to be more diligent in posting here.  The only excuse is that we aren’t traveling so I didn’t think there is anything to write about.  The truth is, there is a lot that goes on here and you all might be interested in hearing about it.

Every Thursday is hike day at the resort.  There are lots of trails thought the desert and plenty to see.  Today we hiked about 40 miles away in a small community called Yucca.  I know today is Friday and we did hike yesterday but sometimes we do a few extra days here and there.  Anyway I though you might be interested in seeing a few photos of the beauty the desert has to offer.


We hiked through some cholla fields and got pretty stuck with cactus.  I think I still have one in my leg.  My favorite is to climb to the top of the hills and enjoy the views. 

This is a big weekend for Havasu.  We have the big pyrotechnics show where the manufacturers bring their best for show in hopes to attract more sales.  It is a whole weekend event starting Thursday night on through the weekend.  Also is the Rockabilly event.  Lots of music, classic cars and freaks.
