Update from Your RV Workers On Wheels Newsletter Editor

We are in Port Mansfield, TX. It is downright hot here. The temperatures here now are higher than our Alaska temperatures in the middle of the summer.

Does anyone ever get done all the things on their "To Do" list? Winter is passing quickly. I'm not sure how we are going to get done all the things that we wanted to do this winter. I'm not complaining -- we've gotten a lot done, and we've certainly enjoyed ourselves. We simply have a very long list.

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

Working RVer Tip

Just because there was no position open at a particular campground last week doesn't mean that there isn't one available there this week. Campground positions open up unexpectedly. People cancel at the last minute or leave because of health problems, family emergencies, or because the job wasn't working out for them.

Your Working While RVing Questions Answered

Campground Job with Kids

~~ Jay asks: I'm having a problem with places telling me that they don’t want families, that they only want single or retired couples. Could you give me some information that may help us find a volunteer position in exchange for a site?

~~ I answered in part: The first thing that comes to mind: How do they know you have kids? That information should not be on your resume or job application.

~~ Read the longer version of my answer -- and add your comments -- on the website.

Teach Beginning Genealogy

~ from Paula Patton

I would like to teach beginning genealogy classes in a 55+ or other long-term camp. Most parks have Wi-Fi and a few computers, so I would include internet genealogy. Also, included would be genealogy scrapbooking, family history writing, and record-keeping.

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....
