Busy Season In Florida

Beginning around the end of October Florida’s workamping assignments get pretty scarce. If you don’t already have assignments for the high season you may just end up paying for where you stay until you can find a placement. Generally, if you have workamped anywhere before you can keep checking with the volunteer coordinator to see if someone has canceled out. You will have to be willing to go as soon as a position becomes available.

Come By and See Us

Over the next couple of weeks while the RVing season is ramping up here in Florida I decided to try and sell more copies of the reference guide I created for those who wanted to find out more about volunteer workamping in Florida. The guide is still good for everything except for the contact names. Florida State Park employees as well as some of the other employees at all of the organizations in the book have a tendency to retired, quit or change jobs quite often. So, even though the Volunteer Coordinator we have listed in the book may have moved on there is no reason why you couldn’t just ask for the current one and get their name and email address over the phone. Remember that each organization has their own procedures for getting new workampers it does not hurt to send a copy of your filled out application directly to the coordinator at the parks you want to volunteer at and say that you have submitted the documents as requested but would like to send them a copy just in case they didn’t receive one yet.

Sign Petition to Fully Fund Fl State Parks

Hey, guys our Florida State Parks budget is coming up soon and the monies are not nearly enough to help bring back all the state parks affected by the hurricanes the past couple of years. We need to tell the governor and representatives that we want our Florida State Parks and public land areas repaired, upgraded and fully-funded! There is a posting on Twitter and Facebook with a link to the petition and once signed gives you the contact information and a sample email to send to the Florida representatives.

We May Be Stationary but Working On Moving

Right now we may be stationary but I am working as fast and hard as I can to get this current book I am writing finished and, hopefully, selling lots of copies or perhaps get a couple of corporate sponsors to help in publication and marketing. Once, it is finally completed we will be moving our dead RV to my brother’s house for renovations. We will be looking for another RV of some type to continue our travels. My mom still wants to go and I really want to finish visiting ALL of the state parks before we venture out to other states. To that end we hope you will support us by buying our handcrafted items from our various online stores, visiting our websites, clicking on the advertisements (hey, every penny counts), share and love our posts on social media or even join our membership site.

What Is Up With This Weather

Seriously people living in an RV full-time you have to really be aware of the weather. Even in Florida this winter we have had some quite chilly days here lately. Yes, I know it is nothing like what is happening around the country and we are worried about our relatives in the severely hit areas but you don’t have a lot of protection in one of these little metal boxes on wheels. Sadly, we can’t just up and leave where we are because our engine is still blown and we have committed to staying here another couple of months.

Happy Holidays and Safe Travels

Howdy all my fellow full-timers out there! Hope you are traveling safe and have found your camping places over the next couple of months. If you are headed to Florida we hope you have confirmed reservations as we are generally full all through the next couple of months. If you don’t have one or have a workamping assignment already set up then you might want to consider buying our book and find you a volunteer placement. Volunteering is always a great way to spend a couple of months in some of our most beautiful public land areas, help out the personnel and keep these areas available for the rest of the visiting public. You can learn new skills, meet more interesting people and contribute to our natural resources in a very real way.
