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.

We have decided on a schedule among ourselves by working three days one week and four days the next. We are taking the end of the weekdays and they the beginning this month with Sunday being the alternating fourth day. That way all of us gets three days off in a row. Of course, if campers come by your RV to ask questions and we are home we will still answer them the best we can.
