Update from Your RV Workers On Wheels Newsletter Editor

I feel like Mr. Rogers.... It's a beautiful day in the neighborhood.

As July comes to an end, the tourist season in Alaska is starting to wind down. An RV park that was packed to overflow parking a couple days ago had open spaces this morning. Those here to go salmon fishing are bringing their gear into the shop to sell before they fly back to the lower 48.

And, yet, tourist businesses are still hiring. Driving down the main highway in town, I couldn't help but notice a number of Help Wanted signs on marquees and in business windows. Fishing tackle and hardware store clerks. Bartenders and servers. Cashier at a convenience store located next to a campground. Several local cafes needing cooks, waitresses, hostesses, and dish washers. Openings in various departments at both major grocery stores. These were within about a five-block stretch.

Mid-season hiring is in full swing. Hiring for the shoulder season will soon follow.

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

Working RVer Tip

Things you do around your sticks 'n bricks for home maintenance and repair give you experience needed for many campground jobs. Campground owners care that you know how to do things. They don't care if you did it at home, at a volunteer job, or as paid employment.

Happy Campers - Some Work Camper Favorites

RV Park Activity Directors Are Musicians And Entertainers -- Bill and Mary Condry love playing music and making people laugh. And that is the core of what they do in their daily work as RV park activity directors. They make friends. They entertain. "Most RVers love to have fun," comments Bill. "We try our best to keep them busy and enjoying themselves."


Writing RV Adventure Books -- In the pioneer days of America, iron men and stout hearted women loaded their belongings into a Conestoga wagon, hitched up a team of oxen, mules or horses, and headed out. These early road rogues crossed the plains heading for the territory of their dreams, the "promised land."


Traveling Horse People -- Traveling horse-people, helping others! It became obvious that the time had come to do what we have always dreamed of, and that is to ride our beloved horses wherever we can and stay out of the snow and ice of Northern Washington State.

Working RVer Tip

Your personality traits may be more important than your education. For a camp host, your ability to strike up a conversation with anyone you meet is likely more relevant than the advanced degree you received thirty years ago.

Campground Work Goes Beyond Volunteer Workamping -- It Includes Paid Jobs

Campground jobs come in all shapes and sizes. You probably hear the most about those where you trade an agreed upon number of hours of work each week for an RV site. Those jobs are common. But they aren't the only game in town. Most campgrounds do have paid staff. Many hire independent contractors to do specific jobs.
