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.

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.

Wrapping Up Summer

We should all be wrapping up our summer and getting ready for fall. For some that means getting the kids ready for school and older ones might be going off to college. For most of us full-time RVers it means we may want to start heading south in anticipation of colder weather in the northern areas. Mountainous areas may be great to visit to try and get away from those hot summer months but play heck on the older bodies as the temps start going lower and lower each week.

Weird Weather We Are Having

Florida like the rest of the U.S. is really having a weird batch of weather the last couple of months. Generally, by now we should be in the groove of bright, warm days, medium cool nights and occasional showers. But mother nature seems to have a touch of Alzheimer’s or something. One day bright and sunny and the next no sun and cooling temperatures like it’s trying to be winter again. I can’t imagine what we are going to have this summer. We have even already had severe thunderstorms this past week. The only good thing about that is that the attendance in the park slacks off a little during the rain storms. Yes, there are those who refuse to leave and just hang out for a while to see if it really means to stay.

Rainbow Springs Needs A Campground Host

I just received a message from one of my fellow Full-Time RVing volunteer campground hosts. Alisha and her family are hosting in Rainbow Springs State Park over the next couple of months and need a partnered couple for the camping area. The campground is fairly big with 54 reservable campsites including 44 RV/Tent, 3 RV only,
7 Tent Only, laundry rooms and has 4 bath houses that need to be cleaned daily. The sites are checked and cleaned when the campers leave, of course. The RV/Tents sites all have electric, water and sewers on site which is extremely nice for the campers but the Tent-Only area only has electric with water faucets. And there is landscaping to help keep clean and looking neat. During the week the campground office opens at 10 am Friday 8:30 am on Saturday. You can start cleaning bathrooms whenever you like, but you can’t pick up the camping report until the office opens.

Winter in North Florida

Winter in the north Florida area has roared in like a lion this month. Not only did we have snow in portions of this area earlier this month last night we got down in the teens here at our the county park where we are currently workamping. Most people come to Florida for warmer temperatures and our more than average nice weather when the snow is blowing a blizzard in the northern, central and western states this time of year.
