Back to Amazon and a Change of Tactics

October 31, 2014 | 51

Happy Halloween everyone! So. Julie, Chance, and I have now been living in the Reno area for nearly three weeks. All in all, things are going well and I’m enjoying our new home base, more details on Sparks Marina to come. We’ve made one trip out to Lake Tahoe already and hopefully will be doing…

Zion Beauty, A Book Review, and CamperForce News

August 29, 2014 | 51

Looking at the calendar, I can’t believe that August is almost over and summer is on it’s last hurrah. My time out here at Zion National Park has been simply amazing, I’m so grateful that I had the opportunity to come out west this year. In honor of that, here’s a list of ten things…

Something New

March 24, 2014 | 30

One thing that never ceases to thrill me about traveling is all of the new things I get the opportunity to experience. On Thursday I got to observe a prescribed fire for the first time here at the OSBS, it was a lot of fun! Thursday I’m amazed at what all needs to come together…

Your Most Anticipated RVing Destinations

March 8, 2014 | 45

The prospect of heading out West this fall has got me thinking about all of the neat places I want to visit while I’m out that way: the Rockies, the Grand Canyon, redwood forests, the northwest coast, boondocking in the Southwest desert and checking out Quartzsite, and just about every National Park in Utah. I…

Full-time RVer Health Insurance

March 4, 2014 | 23

Twice in the past month or so I have gotten questions from readers who were wondering how the Affordable Healthcare Act (also referred to as ObamaCare) changed the playing field for full-time RVers. In truth I have long toyed with the idea of writing more on health insurance for pre-retirement full-timers. But then I would…

Six Benefits of Seasonal Jobs

March 1, 2014 | 34

It’s no secret, I think my life is pretty awesome. All of the wonderful things about RVing brought up in the last post are great things to point to, but I realized there’s something I left out of that list that bears mentioning. Something I really didn’t consider a perk of constant travel that luckily…

Status Report

February 9, 2014 | 19

Nothing too blog worthy to report this weekend. I went up to Charleston with Julie to visit friends who I haven’t seen in a year. It’s so lovely to get to travel back to places I’ve been before and catch up with people. Goodbyes can be tough, but when the next Hello comes there’s always…

CamperForce Earnings 2013

January 17, 2014 | 34

The numbers are in! Here’s how my CamperForce earnings stacked up this year. As many of you know, Amazon is one of the best paying RVer friendly jobs out there. But is worth the hard physical work, repetitive nature of the job, and long hours? I’ll give my numbers and you can be the judge.…

Home Stretch

December 16, 2013 | 26

There’s only one week left here at Amazon before I steer south into Texas and then over to Florida, I can’t wait. This week is for tying up loose ends before the next big drive. I’ve got to make sure I have travel friendly food on hand, start putting away and battening down items for…

ICQA for CamperForce

December 6, 2013 | 16

This year at Amazon I’m working in ICQA, which I believe stands for inventory control and quality assurance. This department is neither Inbound or Outbound, it falls under the category of Support, but has the same hours and breaks as Outbound. For last year’s run down on Stowing, click here. Disclaimer: As always, this isn’t…

The Forecast

December 3, 2013 | 18

Today’s update is going to be quick because time is getting harder and harder to come by now that peak season has hit. I survived Cyber Monday yesterday, and today is day four of a six day in a row stint. The work forecast is calling for overtime up until the end of season, we’re…

Keeping Warm in my Little RV

November 14, 2013 | 39

Coffeyville had it’s first hard freeze Tuesday night, with a low of 22 and 20 mph winds. Last year, temps like that would have froze my hose up and spelled death for my water filter, but this year thanks to some kind neighbors, I’m borrowing heat tape and have foam insulation for my water hose.…
