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.

What a great time

As you know we just spent a week in Vegas mainly for this weekends NASCAR race.  We found it was cheaper to get a weekly rate at the campground rather than the 4 nights for the race.  We could always find something to do.  Turns out we did none of the Vegas stuff.  Instead we spent one day seeing the Red Rock Canyon, another seeing the Hover Dam and bypass bridge, and went to the strip to see the NASCAR hauler parade.  The rest of the time we spent in the infield with our daughter and their friends for the NASCAR weekend.  What a great time we had.  Everything went extremely well from the trip there and back to the touring and the race.  I remember before we went fulltime we didn’t want to go home after a great weekend on camping, I got the same feeling this time.
Now we are back in the resort here in Havasu and there is plenty to do here as usual.  It won’t be long before everyone heads home and Susan and I will be one of the few left here for the summer.
Here are a few more photos.
