Back From Yosemite

Back From Yosemite

As you have probably seen on our Instagram or Facebook, we had to leave our work season at Yosemite National Park early due to the Washburn Fire. We had planned on working into October, but the fire shut down both of the stores we were working at and our housing in Wawona. We drove back to Orlando, Florida the end of July. While we could have tried to wait it out, we were spending a lot of money on hotels…

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…

Gate Guarding in Texas

Gate Guarding in Texas

Craig and I are starting our second gate guarding assignment today in Texas. The first gate lasted around three weeks and we made a little over $6,000. It was a 24 hour gate with a guard shack. Our RV was parked next it. There was a generator to hook up to for power and water/sewer tanks. It was a busy gate and pretty remote. This gate seems a little less busy and we will be working out of our RV….

On the Road Again

On the Road Again

It has been a very nice winter here in Florida, but we need to start making some money again! So we are headed to Texas in April to do some gate guarding at the oil fields. It is good money, we get an RV spot and we will still be working together. Basically, we keep an eye on things and sign workers in and out. We decided to take the same route we took last March and April to San…
