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.

No more Elks

We will be staying in campgrounds from now until we get back to Havasu.  We are now at The Orange Grove RV Park in Bakersfield.  We have stayed here several times and it never changes.
We have always enjoyed our stay here.  This place is a popular transit stop for people just passing through.  During the day hours the place is empty.  We arrived around 11:00a and pretty much had our pick of sites.  However, during the late afternoon/evening hours this place will fill up and before 8:00a it empties out again.  The price is right, they have a pool, meeting room, lounge, small store, free WiFi, and orange trees.
Every site has about 3 well groomed orange trees.  During the season you can pick all the oranges you want.  Unfortunately we never seem to be here during the season which is January through April.
For some reason though I cannot connect to their internet.  Landen connected right away with his computer, Susan’s computer connects but mine won’t.  It might have something to do with all the blockers I am running.  No problem, I still have my MiFi card.  The drive here was really good.  I was a little concerned about the Dash Air in the motorhome but it performed so well it was freezing us out.  The weather here was about 100 degrees today and tomorrow will be hotter.  We are comfy though with both ACs running.

  1. Not sure comfy is the word I'd use...but OK. We reached 93 and anticipate 100 by Monday or Tuesday! With the humidity, it's hot!!!

    Could have stayed in Havasu had I wanted this heat...lol
