Monica, a quick Heads up, I would start putting my name out there now. Cause owners already are looking for next years help. Of course there is always someone who's looking for someone right now or in your case when your ready to workcamp. But honestly it was always something I tried to have kinda put in place before the previous season ended. Thank goodness for the crazy people who jumped in and helped us out our first season when we bought our park opening week. And the ones who took the job when I kicked 3 of my workcampers out one night, long story but the quick version is- these two guys who had such a competition between eachother and it came to blows between them. Well, only days before I had told them to just ignore eachother, one come to me for direction the other going to my Dh. They didn't seem to like eachother and only when it became so uncomfortable that my guest started seeing it I finally said enough! Would have kept the wife of one, she was a doll and one of the best workers I ever had, but she was with him and he was gooooooone! I was done! Only left me with 2 in the height of the season, but some guest decided to stay and work for me for a month to get me thru the busiest part. They were gems! But for the most part I had workcampers who had contacted me the year before. So if you have any clue where you would like to spend time, I would start sending a resume now. Best of Luck! Enjoy!

Monica, what are you using for a tow vehicle? And starting this young, you can be fulltime camping for another 40 or 50 years..... Congrats on taking the bull by the horns and just doing it.

Yeah, I bought a 2001 Infinity QX4 yesterday, V6, 3.5L Nice ride, a meatier SUV, but not too bulky, I am enjoying it. Picked up the Scamp yesterday and towed it home no problem at all!!! I am loving my choices!!

37? WOW! Good for you and the best of luck! I am shaking my head in awe and jealousy! I am impressed! You are doing what I want to do in 4 years, 10 months, and 29 days!

You ever get to Wyoming, you can park in our driveway and recharge everything if you need.

What a nice buy.
If you come to the north west you can find us with our 2000 scamp 16 on the rivers andlakes fishing.
That is if the weather changes it is snow hard outside now.
Dave and the grateful egg.

Monica,

Congratulations on finding the perfect trailer for following your dreams out on the open road, exploring this beautiful country, meeting people and building lasting memories. Will you be keeping a blog of your travels for friends and family to know you're safe "out there"?

ENJOY! ENJOY! ENJOY!

I plan on doing a newsletter type thing for friends and family. Some of my family do not have computers (hicks.. ), so some will be via email and some snail mail. I may blog, not sure yet, if I do it will probably all be the same info. I will let you all know if I decide to.

I will ENJOY! Thanks!

Awesome. Congratulations on finding what you were looking for. Greg was also a big help when I went searching for my trailer. He is a very valuable asset here for that that are looking for a trailer.

Gosh you all, I have sooooo much to learn!!! I have already spent about $2000 getting all sorts of necessities just to get on the road (break control, sway bar, etc.) that I had no idea about some of it. I am looking forward to it and will hopefully be able to take my time learning, you all will know when I am panicking though, believe me! I am definately going to be more educated in a year...LOL

Congrats Monica. Let me know how turning into a Texan goes. I was just looking at a couple of different options for fulltiming. South Dakota and Texas. I think with Escapess you get an actual address not a P.O. Box.

Good Luck to you and keep an eye out for "Puff" a little 13 footer. She's often on the move whether fulltiming or part-timing.

Hopefully we will see each other out there, I have yet to name mine though, working on it. I am going to let her name herself...

I like Escapees, seems like a really good price and really good, dedicated service. Also no sales tax in TX, like that as I am leaving CA where taxes are very high! Come on girl...get on it...go full timing, I think we are going to love it!!!

congratulations!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
we want reports on how it is out there on the road. This is something we have thought about but might now have to as things are. Greg seems to specialize in getting people their eggs. He did the same for us and we have no regrets, and now we are looking at getting out second egg!!!!!!!!!!!!watch out you will find them addictive.

lets see the pictures and here about where you are hanging out, maybe we can get together.

Hey, what are you doing for the next couple of weeks? I will be dry camping (my first outing with my egg) in the Imperial Valley desert. It is free to camp there, but no hook ups. You seem close, but the notice may be a little short, sorry. Let me know, I will let you know how to get there! Would love to meet you!! I think you are only about 3 to 4 hours away!
