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.

Didn’t get there in time

Today we left Gilroy with little gas in the tank.  I planned to stop at a gas station about 30 miles down the road.  What I do when I know I will need to stop for fuel is look at the stations on Google Maps Satellite View and see how the station is arranged to see if I can get in and out with the motorhome with car attached.  This station was an easy in easy out.  Just as I was pulling up to the pump a guy was stringing yellow caution tape around the pumps.  He said they are closing the pumps for maintenance.  I begged him to wait a few minutes until I fill up but he wasn’t going for it.  I made my way over the Highway to the no name station on the other side to get enough gas to make it to another Chevron station.  Turns out the only exit of this station puts me right back on the highway…IN THE WRONG DIRECTION!  So I had to take the next exit, drive down the road for about a mile, then under the highway and back another mile to get back on the highway in the right direction.  Well we made it back here to Atascadero again.  We will be here for 2 nights so we can take Landen to the Hearst Castle tomorrow.  Today was Laundry day, Fun!  I just got the notice that I have used up my Data allowance for our Internet.  That means I am now on “Overage Charge”.  I think it will only be an additional $10 for the month so it’s not too bad.
