1st shot at this
I thought I could pass some time and help others by informing them of what we do as workampers. I've been doing this for about three years now, so I guess it's become a career path. My fiance and I, plus a cat and a dog, moved into an RV about three years ago. Our first adventure was in central Florida at an RV park. I toiled under the hot Florida sun doing outdoor chores while the missus worked the store/office. When a call offered us a chance to work with horses in Missouri, we jumped at the opportunity. That led to our second adventure near Lebanon, MO. We went to work for a Mom and Pop float operation, campground and; soon to be added, horseback riding outfit. We spent almost two years there doing almost every and any chore imaginable. We cut down trees, broke horses, repaired canoes and rafts, cleaned rest rooms and almost froze to death during a Missouri winter. We ended our second year in Missouri working for a large campground in Branson. At the end of that year, we went to Florida to be with my Father, who died from cancer that Christmas. We have now started on our third adventure, back in Missouri, near Branson. More on that in my next update.
