Work camper is a term that is used to describe work that can be
done while camping and traveling. The jobs are usually short term and
do not require much commitment or prior skills. You can work in New York
city one year and the Grand Canyon the next without any hassles. The jobs
are typically seasonal and usually give you free lodging or a camp site
as part of your compensation. There are numerous other ways to pay for
everything while on a Vanabode journey like working for yourself in your
own business as well. EVERY one of these methods and direct links to
them are included in the book - Vanabode.
Within the Vanabode
book I explain the many different ways you can earn a living while travel
camping all over the United States. Many people are skeptical about Vanaboding
because they do not have any savings to travel on: as explained in the
book you need about $600 a month for EVERYTHING, including lodging, transportation
and food. Even though it is not much, you can't move on your dream of
being completely free, coming and going and living wherever you want for
as long as you want, without it. Do NOT worry, get the book and you will
find a great seasonal job from hundreds of opportunites listed.
Some folks need $1200 a month because they are traveling long distances
as a couple with a small child. Others need less than $500 a month because
they do not drive very far but rather stay put in one national park like
setting for an entire tourist season of 6 months or longer. Some have
savings, some have limited retirement income, and others just want to
work for themselves instead of slaving in a lackluster 9-5 job that only
allows 2 weeks a year of travel.
Picture shows some of the coastline along the 17 mile private "pay to get in" section of California
near Carmel by the Sea. You can drive this route or bike it like we did. Either way you could spend the entire day
here with spectacular wildlife, sea life and ocean breezes and views that are constantly changing. Vanabode in fully stocked as there are no public restaurants. We had a wonderfully romantic time here eventually falling asleep on the beach.
Get your copy of Vanabode as soon as you can and check out the chapter
on work campers and how we earn money for everything we need. There are
links for hundreds of places in the book to make a solid
income and most are extremely fun. Everything from pulling a hot-dog cart
to shooting photography, and from working in a national park to running
an annual Christmas Tree sales lot. Below are just two live examples
of the kinds of work you can do.
The book has many, many more opportunities and if you don't want to work
for yourself there are resources where you can apply for hundreds of jobs
that require little or no experience in the camping industry. There are
hundreds of places outlined in the book to make a solid income and most
of them are extremely fun for the work camper.
