Workers On Wheels: Work For RVers and Campers

= = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = =

Update from Your RV Workers On Wheels Newsletter Editor

We took our work to the city campground in Homer, Alaska, for a few days this week. We usually skip campgrounds over holiday weekends, because we want to avoid the crowds. That wasn't an issue this time. The campground was about empty when we arrived on Wednesday. Even Saturday, when it was time for us to move on, there were rows of open spaces.

Questions and comments on a particular topic come in bunches. Lately , I've been hearing that you miss getting more personal updates on what we are doing. Some are asking about our work. Others miss the more general, personal updates. Thanks for letting me know.

We have a second hand store that we sometimes have open when we are here at our home base in Soldotna. It's a small shop. When we travel, we put up a "Closed" sign. When Bob and I started full-time RVing, we sold at flea markets most every weekend and sometimes mid-week, too. After setting up our home base here, we opened the shop, a natural extension of our flea market life.

While in Homer, we hunted down some merchandise to sell in the store. I also started a Facebook page for the store. If you are curious, here's the link: AK Secondhand Store on Facebook

As for other work we did there, I updated the websites, did some writing, followed up with some folks interested in Watkins, and did some support and training with some of my Watkins team. The view from my RV office was spectacular -- the mountains and ocean.

We hope this finds you in the midst of a good Labor Day holiday weekend.

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

Working RVer Tip

If you know you can do your current job on the road as well as you can from your employer's office, consider telecommuting. When you approach your employer about it, go in with a plan, not a request.

Working RVer Tip

Consider a seasonal agricultural job. Some pay quite well. There’s more to farm work than planting, hoeing, and picking. Agricultural jobs include dispatchers, truck drivers, bookkeepers, mechanics, machinery operators, scale masters, cooks, etc.
