Another Door Opens

Just as expected, that too did pass. That too meaning the job hunt that I’ve been on the past three weeks. Well, sort of anyway. Last Wednesday I got a call back from Lowes, the place I had interviewed at the week before. They wanted me to come in the next day to give me […]

When to Quit

I’m still in a holding pattern as job searching continues. Yesterday I hit the 30 application mark. There’s been progress, but not as quick as I was hoping. There are things I’d like to start planning for. Places to go, work to do on the blog, and writing for the ebook, but all of that […]

Finding Temp/Contract Jobs for RVers

Well, this hasn’t exactly been my most thrilling week as a full-time RVer. There’s been an awful lot of job searching going on, and not a whole lot else. So when it came time to write today’s blog post, I figured what better topic than finding temporary jobs for RVers, since hey, it’s been on […]

Warmer Climes

A goodly amount of fun was had during my 16 days in Wisconsin. After a two night pit stop in Madison for sledding and other shenanigans, it was on to my parents house in Rapids to spend Christmas with the family. The granite outcroppings pictured here are located in Powers Bluff County Park, located near […]

Final CamperForce Review

The dust has finally settled from Amazon’s CamperForce, with my last check having been deposited on the 4th. You know what this means, final review time. First and perhaps most importantly, the money. The Money: Total made (in 11 weeks and 2 days): $4617.81 First paycheck (2 half days for orientation): $72 Average of 2nd […]

How to Choose the Best Type of RV

One question I see pop up on RVing forums over and over again is what type of RV is best. There are two answers to this question, a long one and a short one. The short one is that there is no one best kind of RV, just the one that works best for you. […]

Conducting an Annual Review

I’ve never been a big fan of New Years Resolutions, they seem designed to set you up for failure. You create a lofty goal, but that initial enthusiasm isn’t enough to carry you through the whole year. Then you start to wonder how you’re going to pull it off, and all too often it falls […]

Holiday Update

I hope everyone had a good holiday, I know I am! The trip up to Wisconsin was uneventful. Google thought it should take 9 hours and 48 minutes to drive the 640ish miles from Coffeyville to Madison, so I figured it’d be 12 hours pulling the RV since I go a maximum of 60 mph, […]

Caroling Through the Snow

Yesterday’s unexpected overtime has left me with less time that I planned on having to get Cas ready to roll on Saturday. It’s an interesting logistical equation. I’m not going to be living in Cas for the 2-ish weeks I’m up in Wisconsin, due to the climate. This means I needed to get Cas winterized, […]

The Places You’ll Go

It looks as though 8th shift won’t be having overtime this week and my last day will be Friday night, meaning I’ll be leaving Coffeyville once I wake up on Saturday. This gives me more time to make it to Wisconsin before Christmas, woohoo! But since I had overtime this past Saturday, that only left […]

The Dream Job

Back when I was working at Best Buy, I once had my supervisor come up and ask if I was okay with covering a co-worker’s shift that would put me into overtime. I said I was, and he smiled and said given the chance he’d work overtime too, because he loves extra money, and he […]

Figuring the Pay at Amazon

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 […]
