Working In Yosemite

Working In Yosemite

The past few weeks we have been deciding what to do for the 2022 spring/summer season. We had several interviews at a few national parks, but decided to head to Yosemite this summer! We have always wanted to work a season there and hike more, but they don’t really have any RV spots with hookups. There are a few volunteer RV spots with the park service for camp-hosts, but those usually only last a month. We got jobs working for…

Winter In Yellowstone

Winter In Yellowstone

Planning a trip for any national park vacation can be a bit overwhelming because hotels and activities book so fast and far ahead. Parks like Yellowstone and Glacier have such a short summer season you are limited in dates. Winter planning for Yellowstone was new to us and very different from summer trip planning. While some parks are a lot less busy in the winter, hotels and activities are more limited and book fast. There is also the booking challenge…

Four Years Full Time!

Four Years Full Time!

It is amazing how fast time has gone by since traveling in our RV full time. We are enjoying life so much. I am always impressed with how Craig manages this 34 foot trailer! Especially parking it in tight RV spots and maneuvering it through traffic in places like San Francisco and Houston. I grew up in New York City and did not get my drivers license until I was 25, so I am grateful he does the driving. We…

Fall Is On The Way

Fall Is On The Way

I can not believe August is nearly over and fall in on the way. We have been at our seasonal site in New Hampshire for three months now. Unfortunately, the weather has been either extremely hot or very rainy. The rain brings the biting bugs out. We had planned on doing more hiking this summer, but our friend broke his foot. He was the one that planned a lot of our hiking trips up here because he knows the White…

Spring and Summer Plans For 2021

Spring and Summer Plans For 2021

Craig and I are enjoying our time here at The Disney Wilderness Preserve volunteering for the second time. We were planning on working at Yellowstone this summer, and had some good interviews and job offers set up. Then Covid cases started surging again and new strains started popping up. We are not sure when we will be able to get vaccinated. We would also have to travel though New Mexico and Colorado again to get to Wyoming. They have been…

Back on the Preserve

Back on the Preserve

Craig and I made it back to the Disney Wilderness Preserve and Florida in March- right before things started shutting down due to Covid-19. We are volunteering again for a while and deciding what we will do next. It is a great place to wait things out since there are only a few of us here on 12,000 acres! We are enjoying the peace and quiet. Right now the Preserve is closed to the public, but things are starting to…

Managing a Pumpkin Patch and Christmas Tree Lot

Managing a Pumpkin Patch and Christmas Tree Lot

Wow! It has been a while since I wrote a blog post. My internet service has been practically non-existent the past few months. We got to our lot in California the end of September. It was in a busy neighborhood surrounded by places like Costco, Home Depot, LA Fitness and fast food. We had electric and water on site and the company had a truck come out every Monday to pump our tanks. We worked six weeks for the pumpkin…

Here are some things we love about RVing and some that are not so…

Gate Guarding Pros and Cons

Gate Guarding Pros and Cons

We are really looking forward to finishing up gate guarding in Texas on Sunday. We had considered working until the end of August, but we are ready to have a break before traveling to California! We will spend a few weeks in San Antonio until we head out on the 29th. After three months of gate guarding, we came up with some pros and cons in case any RVers are considering trying it. Pros: -Good money in a short amount…
