Thank you Lisa. I think that right here on Air Forums there must be quite a few Airstreamers that do seasonal work or travel and find work on the road and not only the rich and famous but from all walks of life, or would that be all rides of life?? There's a lot to do out there and its nice to hear from others on just what they are doing and what the experience is like and take away tips, and energy, to help equip ourselves on the road ahead.

Jack that's a great area for traveling. I envy you two. How's the transition from stick and mortar to fulltime Airstreaming?

This is a serious post.... ;-)

You can travel and do UXO work (that's my line of work). UXO stands for unexploded ordnance. The one catch is that you have to graduate UXO school, there are schools in TX,TN, and Colorado. School takes approx. 6 weeks and cost $6,000. Starting pay as a tech I is $22-$24 dollars, plus per diem and benefits-in-kind (around $3.60/ an hour now I believe). Per diem runs anywhere from $90 to $140 dollars a day. If anyone is interested drop me a note.

WOW JDavid interesting work and that would certainly seem to fix anyone's money problems... one way or another. Just teasing, thanks for posting. You must have some real interesting stories and have nerves of steel!

I like that people are posting opportunities in this thread. There are things I have never even thought of before and all out there waiting for the right person(s.)

Wow! Awesome looking job, JDavid, but looks a little dangerous. Great pictures though. Especially the animal paw print ... looks like a very large bear!

This is a neat thread.

A central personal question to bring to ground is really knowing what you want out of "working on the road" - do you want a full income? travel expenses? a little spending money? satisfaction of just being busy? satisfaction of doing something good?

Getting a professional income out of your work probably means doing a bit of homework - but your playing field is anything that can be done from a computer and telephone - or anything where your skills are needed in the field (and from your Airstream).

Supplementary income? - a little spending money?: maybe add some crafty items - that kind of stuff you can do on the road - or what about workkamping - most workkamping sites now have some sort of financial compensation as well as free accommodation - or then again - what about guiding some tours? - it's been several years since I looked but I seem to recall no shortage of tour services seeking trip leaders.

Something just to stay busy?: that doesn't usually seem to be a problem - and if it does - it usually means I really don't want to find something to be busy at on that particular day ....

Something to feel good about?: these are neat - Habitat for Humanity comes to mind - lots of projects in lots of places - but there are others - you don't need to go overseas to make a contribution.

Apart from all the activities that go along with Streaming - my own satisfaction on the road comes from being heavily involved with a large charity - the work that I do doesn't pay a penny - but it is enjoyable to take with me on the road - in fact I find it an incredible hoot to be "slaving" away while taking in the view of a great lake or mountain - or whatever .....

Lots and lots of choices .....




Jay

Very good post Jay, I find that after retiring from a life time of miltary service just cant get into doing nothing not needing much to live on we have as worked home improvement contractors for a retail home improvement firm about 7 years of it and made a lot of cash which we put into our vintage airstream now we got all we needed to be more secure on the road so we are work campers at parks and loving it we are working 6 days a week 2 hours a day for site and around 1,300 cash great gig and lots of time to site see and play with our canoe and bikes. there are so much work to keep a person busy and add a little income best life I can think of for now. And JDavid great info on your job, done that with the 75th out of Lewis but in other countrys hats off stay safe

How does one go about becoming a work camper and at what type of parks? Any special website to visit where you apply?

We actually subscribe to workamper magazine and we get e-mail alerts as well to jobs. Many people find their own jobs by just stopping in or making an inquiry for work at a place they would like to be employed. Usually all that is required is an e-mail and resume with picture of you and RV. Many web sites for campgrounds and web sites for parks such as Dollywood and Disney and various other amusement and theme parks and state and national parks and forestry and the concessionaires that service them, as well as the army corps of engineers all have employment and housing information listed on their own sites too. Some jobs are in exchange for hook-ups and site and amenities, some pay for every hour worked and some have a combination of paid and volunteer hours.

A Google search will generally turn up many different opportunities and ideas. Also Google seasonal jobs and many more sites will be helpful to you. Here are a few links to workamping sites that I have used.
