Update From Your Work For RVers and Campers Newsletter Editor

We hope that you had a terrific Thanksgiving Day, with much to be thankful for.

Bob and I shared the afternoon with friends. We had the complete traditional turkey dinner. And, thanks to Madeline's hard work, dinner also included a full line Mexican foods, all home-made, including the tamales and tortillas.

Later today or tomorrow (December 1), we'll clear the old ads from the December Job Listings page and start posting new ones as they come in throughout the month. If you know of job openings, please pass them onto to us.

Meanwhile, take a look at the ads that we've posted during November. I've been adding resumes, ads, questions and answers, or something to the website most every day.

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

Working RVer Tip

Communicate Your Job Expectations

It is important to let the prospective employer know what you expect and what you are and aren't willing to do. It isn't fair to you or to them if you go into a job that requires you to do something you aren't satisfied doing. The dissatisfaction will fester into trouble.

RVers Writing for Profit

Writing for profit can take you in many directions. Perfect for an RV traveler, wouldn't you say? You can make money writing, and you don't need a degree in journalism or English to do it.

There are many things you can write: Specialty guides. Articles. How-to manuals. Comic strips. Advice columns. Movie scripts. Greeting cards. Romance novels. Westerns. Technical reports.

Or, you could be a syndicated columnist, photojournalist, sports or travel writer, or a grant writer. You could be a poet, newsletter editor, or a ghost writing. You could be a writer for book packagers.

Self Publishing Pays for RVing Writers

Build a self publishing business. You write. You publish. You sell. You profit. Can it really be that simple? Yes. What matters most is that you do actually do it. Get it written and get it out there.

Many aspiring writers procrastinate. They wait for something or another. I know. I was one of them. As a full-time RVer in my early 30's, working our way across the USA, people told me I should write a book about our lifestyle. Yes! Perfect! I love to write. I had the first hand experience. I was an expert on the topic because I lived it day in and day out.

But, I didn't write that book. I put it off because … well, I don't really know why. I suppose because I'd never written a book before and didn't know much about the technical aspects. And, yikes, I might make a mistake. There was always something more practical to do.

Work Your Way Across The USA is now in print. So is The Frugal RVer. And, Meandering Down the Highway. Self publishing these books made a working full-time RVer a decent amount of money. Alas, it wasn't me.

Although he started full-timing RVing several years after I did, Nick Russell wrote those books while I was still thinking about it.

Working RVer Tip

Substitute Teaching

Now that more school districts are using temp agencies such as Kelly or Man Power, rather than hiring substitute teachers directly, it can be even easier for RVers to get subbing jobs. With a temp agency, once you register and do the paperwork, it can be accessed by branch offices in other areas, so you don't have to do it each time you move.

Positive RVing Attitudes

A fashion is nothing but an induced epidemic. ~ George Bernard Shaw

A fanatic is one who can't change his mind and won't change the subject. ~ Sir Winston Churchill

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....
