RV Experience at YMCA of the Rockies

Snow Mountain Ranch, CO Cool mornings, mountain scenery, friends around the fire, and rewarding work in a Christian environment – that’s volunteering and RVing at Snow Mountain Ranch (SMR). We’re Ernie and Sue Stones from Canyon Lake, TX, and we’ve volunteered at SMR for the past three summers.  The first thought that comes to mind […]

Workamping @ Disney World

My wife, Laura and I have been full-time RVing since August of 2011. After traveling the country for 6 months, we settled in Clermont, FL as a base of operations. We rented a site for 3 years before buying our own RV Lot at a luxury RV Resort. It is a place to call home, […]

Wrap-Up: Workamper Rendezvous 2017

We pulled in to Heber Springs RV Park on the 1st of October- and everything after that was pretty much a blur. The time flew past with fun filled days or RV Training, putting the final touches on the Workamper Rendezvous and then hosting 200 attendees for the live event just last week! It’s been […]

RV Travel Preparations:

Once again, we are in the process of packing up and setting off to our next destination.  I’d like to say that we are up and out of a place within 15 or 20 minutes, but that typically isn’t the case.  When it comes to packing up our 26 foot motorhome and leaving,  we have learned that this process can take a couple of hours, minimum.  If we are work camping at a location for a month or more,  we may spread out the tasks over a period of days.

Singing For Our Dinner

Some might think “Let’s Take This Show On The Road” is a nice expression, a whimsical notion.  Well, we, One Story, decided to make it our Truth.  Now, we are no strangers to singing for our dinner.  Living in a resort town for the past four years we have been able to get pretty well established as a musical duo getting to play our music at many local venues and even picking up a few residencies along the way.  So when making the decision to become a full time RV family it was pretty easy to figure out how we would make the bulk of our income.

Background on City of Rocks State Park

The City of Rocks State Park IS a page right out of history.  This natural wonder was created millions of years ago, a product of a volcanic monstrosity. The searing fragments piled high forming giant masses, a sort of welding process.  Eventual erosion created the pillars and other various rock formations we see today.

There are still signs of early inhabitants throughout the area, most notably grinding tools. Wildlife and vegetation specific to the Southwest bring life and variety to this bedrock. Read more about Background on City of Rocks State Park

They are a young enthusiastic couple with a seven month old son, Roman. We settled into our site and then took one of their recommendations and drove to […]

3 Things You need to know about Workamping!

#1:  What is Workamping? We trademarked the word “Workamper” back in 1987.  Workamping is accomplished by individuals that travel the country and work. Some people try to limit the definition by saying, “Well, I’m only a Workamper if I’m working in a campground or if I live in an RV.”  That’s not technically the definition.  […]

Camp Hosts at USI RV Park in Wichita, Kansas

Levi about to fill up a 100 lb propane tank at USI RV Park. The front office is in the background. If you look to the right edge of the photo you can glimpse the back end of our rig. We were parked right next to the office; made for a quick commute to work. […]
