Chinook Bay Camp Hosting: What I learned

Wow. We’ve been busy.  If you’ve tried to reach us or come to visit us you know this isn’t a boring gig. At all.  Friends and family have come and spent a few nights with us, with everyone commenting how busy we are. We are!  Campers on top of campers, people at the door all hours of the day and night. Snakes in tents, loud drunk campers in their 60s who must be reminded of quiet hours; trees falling almost on top of tents; trees falling on camper vans (no one was hurt, thank goodness) and oh, so much more.

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 […]

Tree Trimming- Florida Style

We got our last seasonal position like we get most of our jobs these days, by talking to other full time RVers we meet and sharing information about our past jobs we enjoyed or would recommend. We met a couple this past summer at our Jellystone job who travel down to Florida every year to sell Christmas Trees. We had heard of RVers doing this but rarely met anyone so we had so many questions and were lucky enough to have Burt and Dori to give us first hand experience and reassure us that the company they work for in Florida was legit.

Workamping is not a secret-

So when we meet people, which happens frequently, we get asked the same questions…I should get a t-shirt made the front says I’m a full time RVer and back is the questions.
Where are you going next? What is your favorite place? What do you do for work?
It’s like I’m psychic, but I swear every time. Read more about Workamping is not a secret-

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 […]

Amazon Caperforce- How to Prepare & Plan

You may have heard stories about working at an Amazon fulfillment center from reading not completely positive (or accurate) depictions online.  Those are the stories of former Camperforce Veterans, who packed up their RVs and headed away from their assigned fulfillment centers, just as I have, but like many other former associates I’ve enjoyed my […]

Camp Hosting at Desert Rose RV Park in Fernley, Nevada

How did we learn about the position? We happened upon this position in a Workamper News Magazine.  Workamper News www.workamper.com/is a website devoted to helping full-time and seasonal RVers find employment in and around the country.  Not only do they announce “help wanted” ads on a daily basis, but they have a magazine that is […]

Beet Harvest Adventure

As soon as we mention The Sugar Beet Harvest and that it would be our first job as fulltime RVers we were kindly given opinions and advice on what to expect from people who…in reality did not even know what a sugar beet even looked like…by the time we got to Sidney, Montana we were pretty nervous and excited really having no idea what we had signed up for. Surprisingly, it was absolutely nothing like what those people told us, so just so more rumors don’t spread I will clarify some of the information we were given: Read more about Beet Harvest Adventure

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. […]
