This revelation will come as no surprise to those of you who read my posts from Canyon Vistas, as it’s been an open secret for a while, but as of this afternoon we have signed the paperwork that transfers ownership of a Park Model here into our names.
We’ve purchased a home owned by our friends Bruce and Sonja and have been looking at it for a couple of years before finally getting serious about it this year. We’re actually kind of ambivalent about the whole process, as while we’re pleased that we are going to be owning the place, we’re just a bit sad to know that we won’t be visiting with Bruce and Sonja in their home any longer.
Our new home sits at the front of the park, and has a great view of the Superstition Mountains where we do most of our hiking. And, as it sits on a corner lot, there is an open view to the west so we can experience some of those spectacular Arizona sunsets unimpeded. Just about perfect, and definitely a drawing card for us.
We have plans to add on a Arizona Room, second bath complete with Laundry and a storage room while we’re back home, but are dealing with some issues regarding permits and contractors. Hopefully we’ll be able to get things sorted out over the summer and have things complete before we come back next fall.
We’re not planning on getting rid of our 5th Wheel anytime soon, and will likely still be using it to travel back and forth between BC and Arizona for at least a few more years. Right now we still can’t figure out any better way to get our frozen BC seafood down here with us, among other things.
Next year we’ll hopefully have the deck moved closer to the street, and our new room built behind it. The new storage area is going behind where Bruce’s truck is presently parked. We’ll be sure to keep you informed.
