Figuring the Pay at Amazon

December 10, 2012 | 14

Is the money made in Amazon’s CamperForce worth the effort? I sat down to take an early peek at the financials. I won’t have the full picture for another month when my last paycheck comes in, but I have enough now to make some early calculations. I make $11.00 an hour at Amazon. At the…

Top 9 Things to Know About Full-timing

December 7, 2012 | 29

Last week I got an e-mail in from a reader asking me what I thought the top ten most important things to know about full-timing were. It seemed like a good thing to make a post out of, and so I did. Yes, there are nine items not ten. I was looking for broad things…

Experiments in Decision Making

December 3, 2012 | 30

Have you ever had a problem that grew the more you thought about it? How when you weighed your possible answers you kept thinking of more things to consider? More pluses and minuses, more options, and what if this happened, or what if I tried that instead, until suddenly what was once just another problem…

Adventures in Cooking & Amazon Update

November 29, 2012 | 24

Just another friendly RVing tip from someone’s who been there: put dividers between your pots and pans when traveling too, not just your dishes. I have Teflon coated cookware, and I nested it in the cabinet above the microwave when I started traveling. It was all metal, so it wasn’t in any danger of breaking.…

Protecting RV Plumbing in Winter

November 26, 2012 | 28

Or perhaps more accurately: Protecting RV Plumbing in Winter, when you’re living in it. As those of you who follow me on Facebook and Twitter already know, the temperature on Friday night got down to 25 degrees. I knew that was going to be cold enough to potentially do damage to Cas’s plumbing so I…

Peak Kick Off at Amazon

November 19, 2012 | 14

I don’t think people are meant to work nights, or at least wonky things happen to me on this schedule sometimes. I say this because I’ve been laying in bed for over two hours, perfectly awake – all attempts to fall asleep amounting to nothing more than daydreaming. This is the second time in a…

Music For The Road

November 8, 2012 | 45

Whenever I get a post comment from someone who links to their blog using CommentLuv I make a point of peeking at it, I’m nosy like that. Last time I updated, it was Tricia over at Geeky Explorers who commented and unknowingly subjected her site to my prying eyes. One of the first things that stood…

RVing and the Work/Life Balance

November 5, 2012 | 14

One of the big things that had me searching for something better than the typical 9-5 job until retirement was the work/life imbalance. I hated that work dominated 5 out of 7 days of my week. I’d come home and have some time before I needed to go to bed, yeah, but I’d be so…

At the Intersection of Planning and Action

November 1, 2012 | 14

There is a fine line that exists, in the balancing act between planning and action. Without planning, you’re liable to make more mistakes in an endeavor, or much worse, never nail down what you’re trying to do and wander aimlessly. But all the planning in the world amounts to nothing if you never act on…

Working Nights

October 29, 2012 | 7

Adjusting to working nights hasn’t been overly difficult for me. I’m a night owl by nature and have always had a tendency to stay up late and wake up late given the choice. So when I learned that I could make a little extra money at Amazon by working the night shift, I was all…

Ahoy Landlubber!

October 25, 2012 | 23

A couple days ago I was browsing the RV.net forums and I came across a topic: Best thing about my RV is…  The post had many responses. Some listed features directly related to their RV, like a large gallery, good mpg, low price, lots of sleeping space, or 1.5 bathrooms. Others said things that apply…

Two Weeks Into CamperForce

October 21, 2012 | 25

I’m now finished with my second week of Amazon’s program for work campers, so far I’m enjoying myself. Since many readers are asking for another update, here it is. Disclaimer: Again, this isn’t official information. It may not work like this at other sites. It may not work like this at this site next year,…
