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.

Our plan is to start traveling south Monday.  This is the weather forecast for Monday.
Atmospheric River Moisture Plume
Computer model forecast of the moisture plume stretching from the Pacific Ocean to the West Coast on Monday (yellow and orange shadings).
Of course this thing is heading right for us.  I guess this is one of the good things about only traveling 2 to 3 hours a day.  If it looks too bad Monday we will hang out here and do 5 hours broken up by lunch on Tuesday.  Unfortunately we have a schedule and have to move on.
So far this NASCAR experience has gone extremely well.  We are close to the track and the traffic has been light.  It only takes us 10 to 15 minutes to get back and forth. 
As you can see there are not many people here today.  However Sunday will be a different story.  Not much going on at the track today for us except for Sprint Cup Qualifying.
We did hang out over by the haulers for a while so Landen might get a look at some of the drivers.  Just happened that his favorite driver, Jimmie Johnson, came walking by.  Also he spotted Carl Edward.  He got Carl’s attention and gave him a wave and Carl waved back, made his day!  There was a NASCAR Pro Series West Race today.  We watched half of it but lost interest since we don’t know any of the drivers.  It was getting late and we were getting a bit more sun than we wanted so we decided to head back to the motorhome and rest up for tomorrow.
