Update from Your RV Workers On Wheels Newsletter Editor

Bob and I discussed our winter travel plans at dinner this evening. We love the beauty and slow paced life of Alaska in the wintertime. But, we're missing many of the things we associate with a winter in the Rio Grande Valley of Texas. We tossed the pros and cons of each back and forth. The decision? To put off deciding until later.

It amazes me that many of you plan your schedules months... seasons... even a year or more ahead.

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

Your Working While RVing Questions Answered

Volunteering for Rose Bowl Parade Floats

~~ Gail asks: We are wondering if you have any information about volunteering to help with a float for the Rose Bowl Parade. If so, any information would be appreciated. If anyone has done this...would you do it again and would you advise it for others? How do you go about getting signed up?

~~ I answered in part: The Rose Bowl Parade is a spectacular site to see live. I can send you in the right direction for information.

To volunteer to build floats, you contact the float builders directly. They have a list of them, including contact links on the Tournament of Roses website.

Maybe someone who has worked on the floats or otherwise done paid or volunteer work for the parade or games would join in and share their personal experience.

~~ RVers, can you add to this? Read the longer version of my answer and add your comments on the website.

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....
