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.

Dam Bridge

This morning we headed out to the Hover Dam.  Actually we have seen the Dam before but since then they built a bypass bridge that I wanted to see.  This bridge is a bit down stream from the Dam and spans 1900 feet from Arizona to Nevada.  At 900 feet above the river it stands way above the Dam.

We walked down the bridge walkway where we got views of the Dam.

Then we went to the Dan and got a view of the bridge.

The Arizona Nevada state line in the middle of the bridge

The lake is really low on the other side of the Dam.


After coming back from the Dam and Bridge we found out that the hauler parade was tonight instead of tomorrow night as it usually is.  The hauler parade is where about 50 NASCAR car haulers (semi trucks) parade down the Las Vegas Strip all lit up and their horns blasting.  Pretty cool sight to see.
