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.

We are back at it

We left Havasu at 8:00 this morning.  It was already 90 degrees and we anticipated getting out of the heat.  I took about 250 miles of driving to get out of the 100s.  It wasn’t until we left Beaumont, CA that we hit cooler temps.  Turns out it got to about 110 today in Havasu and supposed to be about 118 this weekend.  We are now in Vista, CA where it got to about 70.  We are on a 3 week trip.  We will be picking up our Grandson, as we do every summer, and heading up the coast to Sonoma for a NASCAR race.  Landen is so excited.  So far the trip has been a fixit trip.  We lost a hub cap somewhere along the way, the battery went dead in the car, our portable fan quit working, and Susan’s iron stopped working.  However the motorhome ran great and the dash air that I just recharged blew cold air the whole 100+ degree trip.
More later.
