Volunteering in State Parks

It has been a couple of months since I have taken the time to write up posts for all of my websites. With one thing and another, I just haven’t had the time or I should say that I am not organized enough to get everything done. This weekend I wanted to encourage more people who are living full time in their RVs to consider volunteer workamping in our Florida State Parks this summer. Quite a few of my fellow RVers are being displaced in their current stopping areas and are scrambling to find a place to land for a little while. Well, I say check with your local state parks about becoming a workamper. Yes, all the state parks around the country are being closed due to this social-distancing thing but the parks still have a long list of projects that need to be done and the park rangers just can’t get to all of them. So, volunteer to help them out in exchange for a campsite!

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.

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.
