To Climb or Not to Climb…There’s No Question!

We have been workamping in Northern Michigan since mid-May and have been living three miles from Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore. All season, working in the office at Indigo Bluffs RV Resort, I have told guests about the Dune Climb and encouraged them to try it.  We have driven past the Dune Climb; we have biked past […]

Tucson Nights and Delights

Ross and I really loved our visit to Tucson. So much so that we kept extending it! Unfortunately we have been having persistent battery issues, so while we were there Ross installed a new battery for us. (That hasn’t fixed the problems, unfortunately, but that’s for another blog.) When we weren’t working or problem-solving, we found plenty of fun things to do in Tucson.  Read more about Tucson Nights and Delights

Workamping as Camp Hosts at Mackinaw Mill Creek Camping

Mackinaw Mill Creek Camping runs along the shoreline of Lake Huron and overlooks the Mackinac Bridge, Mackinac Island, Round Island, and Bois Blanc Island.

3…2…1! Exercising on the Road

Workamping is truly a wonderful way to see the country and make new friends-for- life in the process. The spirit of adventure is always with us as we move from place to place with each passing season. I do, however, also enjoy the comfort of returning to a location where I like the people, the […]

I had fantasized about how we could live life differently…

We are a Workamping couple under the age of 45 that also have a family in tow.  We have 2 children who we, in addition to Workamping also homeschool.   A few years ago in the middle of the February winter doldrums, I had fantasized about how we could live life differently.  We decided to […]

I love the stage and entertaining our guests!

Little did I know at the time I took off on my southward adventure in January 2016 that I would stumble upon my workamping destination for my 2017 winter “home”. Since I was fairly new to the RVing lifestyle, I made a few mistakes regarding how to plan my camping destinations in Florida. I stayed […]

A Day in Dahlonega…It’s Pure Gold!

Although the chances for rain were slim today according to the weatherman, by noon it was damp and dreary and staring to drizzle. This was quite a shift from yesterday which was warm and beautiful – a “sit outside in shorts while reading day!” Rather than stay inside and succumb to the weather, we hit the […]

Don’t follow the dream! Create the dream for yourself!

You drag yourself out of bed and get ready for work, the kids are still in bed or you help them get ready for school. Your spouse has worked the opposite shift and is preparing for bed. You talk to them for a half hour or forty-five minutes during this tumultuous part of your day. […]

Dream Job = Great 1st Impression

While managing an RV Resort in Texas, my husband and I quickly realized many Workampers seemed quite ‘stiff’ when called upon for an open position. After undergoing our first round of hiring, we encountered everything from awkward phone interviews to incomplete resumes and inappropriate pictures.  There seemed to just be no status quo, on what […]
