Update from Your RV Workers On Wheels Newsletter Editor

Seward is one of our favorite places in Alaska. This newsletter is going out later in the weekend than usual because my attention was directed more to gazing out on Resurrection Bay than on writing. Weather on the entire Kenai Peninsula has been beautiful this past week. RVs and RVers were moving about en masse – us included.

As part of my work with The Summit Group, I'm taking a four session class called $100,000 Training -- What You MUST Do for Maximum Income. It's been a while since I've had homework assignments to turn in on schedule. The audios and the readings are fascinating and I find myself backing up to listen to parts of them again and again. If you are interested in joining us and taking the course, we surely welcome you.

Wherever you are in your work and travels, we wish you joy and prosperity,

Working RVer Tip

Jobs for the Public Are Jobs for RVers

Jobs open to the general public are also open to RVers. However, the reverse is not always true. Some jobs are exclusively for RVers, usually because they require you to provide your own on site living accommodations in a recreational vehicle.

Employer Profile - Swan Lake NWR

Swan Lake National Wildlife Refuge is a refuge for waterfowl. Established in 1937, it provides a place for ducks, geese, and other waterfowl species to nest, rest, and feed. In the fall, the peak migration of ducks exceeds 100,000 birds. In the winter, over 100 bald eagles are on the refuge. It is also a large wintering area for the eastern prairie population of Canada geese and Mississippi flyway duck populations.

The refuge is used by the public for wildlife observation, environmental education, hiking, and hunting and fishing.

Your Working While RVing Questions Answered

Flight Seeing or Sight Seeing?

~~ Douglas asks: In Ezine Issue #566 you refer to flight seeing. Is this supposed to be sight seeing?

~~ I answered in part: No, it really is supposed to be flight seeing. Maybe it is just an Alaskan thing. Instead of a bus tour to go sight-seeing, you take tours by airplane. Some are very small planes, with only the pilot and one or two passengers. Other planes may hold a dozen or so passengers.

They're pretty common over glaciers, sometimes landing on the glacier so you can get out and walk around on it. Others fly over Denali National Park. They are a great way to see wildlife, volcanoes, and such. Bob and I did one that was a combined trip, where we and eight other passengers took a tour by van up the Hall road from Fairbanks to Prudhoe Bay, and then a flight seeing tour on the way back. Seeing from above puts things in a whole different perspective, not to mention the time savings.

Flight seeing operations provide much seasonal work in Alaska.

Working RVer Tip

Jobs Are Jobs

Work camping jobs are… well, jobs. You'll need to work, regardless of how fun the job or how beautiful the area. You'll be earning money (and/or saving on your RV site rental costs). And for that, your employer or volunteer agency supervisor expects that you perform your assigned duties.

Writing a Good Work Wanted Ad

~ State your skills and accomplishments relevant to the job you want. It is easy to write that you are responsible, a hard worker, and can handle all aspects of the job. What employer will believe it? After all, have you ever seen an employee describe himself as a not-too-bright, irresponsible deadbeat? Be specific.

~ Focus on your talents and capacity to do the job. Do your age, marital status, pets, children, type of RV, and home state have anything to do with improving your ability to do the work you seek? If not, don’t mention them.

~ Your ad is a sample of your communication skills. Proofread and correct any spelling, grammar, and punctuation mistakes. The way you write your ad says more about your communication skills than any words you use to describe them. Rather than telling the employer you have good communications skills, let your classified show them.

Positive RVing Attitudes

We either make ourselves happy or miserable. The amount of work is the same. ~ Carlos Castaneda

Some men have thousands of reasons why they cannot do what they want to, when all they need is one reason why they can. ~ Mary Frances Berry

We started this site after corresponding with thousands of RVers, sharing what we’ve learned from our personal experience as full-time RVers, as well as what we've gleaned from employers and managers who hire and work with work campers and other RV workers.

We do hope we've been instrumental in helping you find the right work situation for your RV lifestyle.

We believe there are many advantages to having an RV home based business that we can take on the road with us. We've found a Watkins Summit Group business works for us.

We are also thankful for SBI!, the "do-all-the-techy-stuff-for-you" e-business building platform that made creating this RV resource site possible.

If you have questions, we're always happy to help. Simply submit them here....
