I made a very dumb decision Thur. It was so dumb I probably shouldn't even mention it. I think I read or heard somewhere that confession is good for the soul. I will see. I may have to go out and buy one of "The Chicken Soup for the ....." books my middle school students read during my teaching career. You can learn a lot from middle school students but that is a topic for another day.
Even though Judy and I are committed to our present workamper position until Labor Day we are already looking for a winter position. Until we make a decision about our unsold house we are mostly concentrating on the SE states. Florida is our main focus. We don't care if it is a paid position or a volunteer position. I have been checking the Workamper "hotline" postings and other employer posting at Workamper.com. A friend of ours suggested that we work for one of the Christmas Tree vendors in FL. He indicated we could earn about $3-4K for about a months work. I also took the time to register with the FL State Parks System. From what I have heard and read it is extremely hard to break into the FL state park line-up.
Thursday after I dropped Judy off for her salon visit I got a call from one of FL State Park vol coordinators. She told me she had looked at my application and resume and had a position available for Oct or Nov for four months. After going over the job requirements and work schedule I thought to myself, this is great. Only had to work 20hrs, 3 days on 3 days off for a position at a state park right on the beach. A "NO Brainer" right? No I blew it. I was concerned that there were no sewer hook-ups. I was thinking I would have to move the RV every week or so to dump. I turned the position down. DUMB, DUMB, DUMP! A portable blue tank would have taken care of the problem. That is a mistake I will not make again. To make it worse I have since talked to a workamper forum member who confirmed the lack of a sewer connection would not have been a big deal. He is there now and said it is a great park - nothing like kicking someone when they are down! :). Oh well life goes on.
Thanks for stopping by.
