Update from Your RV Workers On Wheels Newsletter Editor

A little recognition can sure go a long way in nudging a person to get to work. I've got a busy week ahead.

I'm writing this on Sunday afternoon with the radio playing in the background. The DJ catches me off guard when he announces my name and gives our website address. What surprises me most is that the website he's talking about is one I started, but haven't done much with. In fact, I've been thinking about dropping the site completely. Now, all of a sudden, I'm feeling an excitement about working on it again! For the curious, the site is about our life and travels in Alaska.

We've also added testimonial pages to the Work-for-RVers-and-Campers.com website. With all these positive comments, yes, I'm going to have a very busy week, indeed.

~~ Jowyn writes: I was diagnosed with colon cancer in early 2001. I read all you articles, tried to live each one, as I was very much in house. You will never know what those adventures meant to me! I had a very bad 2003 and lost touch. I just found my notebooks where I kept your e-mails. Am ready to start RVing again, currently looking for another 5th wheel, used, hopefully with a pull out. The docs convinced me I would never RV again...like they tell me now, you really wrote a new chapter in our book.... Too much on me, thank you again for being there, it really meant so much for me. I tossed the pain pills and reached for my RVing book with 1-3 years of e-mails. They meant so much to me. Need I say, my case of "Hitch Itch" was almost terminal.... Thank you, Thank you.

Your Working While RVing Questions Answered

Work Camping Single Men

~~ Bill asks: Are there positions out there for work camping single men? Is there a way to filter these listings for easier searching? Most listings seem to be for couples.

~~ I answered in part: To locate the ads that specify "single," you can search the Work Wanted ad pages with your website browser's "Find" feature.

Most RVers working in campgrounds are part of a couple. So, campground owners write ads directed at them. As long as the work requirements are met, I doubt campground owners care if it is a single person or a couple doing the work.

Working RV Profile

Traveling On The Outskirts

~~ by Jessica Moore

We were a young, newly-married couple who was living the life the way that we were told to. We had the house, the car, the big screen TV...everything that society told us to acquire.

We had regular 9 to 5 jobs at an ad agency. The alarm goes off, we get up, go to work, go home, eat a little something, reset the alarm clock, and go to sleep. Repeat forever. Next thing you know it's fifty years later and you wonder where it all went.

Sound familiar?

That's when we decided to break away and leave it all behind. We've sold it all -- the car, the TV.

We've bought an RV, hitting the road, making everyday different.

Positive RVing Attitudes

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....
