Reply to: Those of us looking for legitimate Work Camping
- No Name Provided
With all due respect, the person posting the above might want to take the "us" out of his/her posting.
The "us" who workamp are as varied as is the positions they are looking for. Also I am a bit puzzled as to the "legitimate Work Camping" reference. I would be interested to hear what the OP considered "legitimate".
Some people are retired and just want to keep busy. Some are retired but need to supplement their meager retirement income. Some, like my husband and I, have chosen to travel and work. We are only in our 40's and need to still work for a living. So yes, we would be looking for "jobs". The only thing that binds the "us", is what we live in while doing these things.
Sometimes people get the wrong meaning when the word "workamper" is put out there. "Workamping" basically means, you travel around, most of the time in an RV or travel trailer, working as you go. It does not specifically mean "working while camping", or working at a campground (although it can certainly mean this too)
Most workampers I have run across have never worked in a campground. They have always worked at other jobs, such as contracting, construction, Home Depot, selling Christmas tress/Halloween pumpkins, or hanging Christmas decorations, to name a few.
While the OP may not be looking for a "job", I can assure you, there are plenty of other workampers out there that are looking for just that, either out of need or just wanting to keep busy.
