  8. I've been doing a lot of reading blogs/forums etc. and watching tons of YouTube videos as we make plans to sell our home, pack up just a few keepsakes and move on to a new phase in our lives of full-time RV'ing. The question I have at this point is "What is the difference (or is there any difference) between Volunteering in exchange for camp site vs. Workamping in exchange for camp site? It seems from what I can gather (reading between the lines) that Workamping may be long-term (months or years) where Volunteering might only be weeks? We want to see the country over the next few years, but we really like the idea of free site and hook-ups. Is it reasonable to expect that we might be able to stay in one place only about a month at a time and still get the benefit of site in exchange? Would a campground owner even have any interest in bothering with such a short timer? Thanks in advance for your input.
  9. Marianne and I are just finishing a 10 week stint as volunteer caretakers at Totem Bight State Historical Park in Ketchikan, Alaska. Nearby is Settlers Cove State Park situated along an ocean passage and surrounded by a dense rain forest. It's an amazingly beautiful place. Winter here in Southeast Alaska is mild and misty with very little snow. The campground is closed for the winter, but there is day use. Tasks include light maintenance, visitor contact, opening and closing of the gate. A log cabin with propane and electricity is provided. The time commitment begins October 1 through April 30, but can be split. For more information, contact Ranger Mary Kowalczyk. Email: mary.kowalczyk@alaska.gov. Phone: (907) 247-8574.
  10. We have been helping out as Volunteers at the CARE Center facility here at Livingston and have found it to be a very rewarding experience. The residents here are what make the helping such a joy. They are, for the most part, a very happy transposed but "real family" of seniors making the most of their "Golden Years". Our fellow Volunteers have exhibited a willingness to go the extra mile in helping the residents and in making our sometimes demanding schedules work. As we were learning how to accomplish our part here, many times other volunteers gave of their free time to make sure we were successful. Our only regret is, as we are preparing to move on with our lives, we find the Volunteer staff here is going to be critically short handed come May. There does not seem to be a way to communicate CARE's needs to Escapees in general so I am using this method on this forum to ask - If you have ever thought of helping out at CARE or if you would like to reach out and help others but didn't know what to do, now is your chance - please contact the CARE Center and Volunteer now. http://www.escapeescare.org/ for all the details or call 1-936-327-4256 and say you would like to help Sincerely, Glen & Jaime Raab SKP#97600

  13. I'm posting this at the request of the park ranger. My wife and I are currently volunteer hosts at Thompson's Mills State Heritage Site in Shedd, Oregon (between Albany and Eugene, in the Willamette Valley). The park is looking for a host couple willing to work the May/June time frame (and others, beyond that). Host duties include - 1) Interpretive tours of the Mill. The mill is the oldest water powered mill, still standing, in Oregon and had a profitable history of operation for 147 years, starting in 1858. The tours include operating the water turbines and electrical drive motor that drives the mill equipment. Oregon State Parks bought the property in 2004 and opened it to visitors in 2007. 2) NO bathroom cleaning. 3) Light cleanup of the tour area of the mill each day, if you work the morning shift. 4) Special projects. These range from archiving equipment in the mill, helping with research concerning the historical operation and customers of the mill or, if you're inclined, mechanical/electrical/carpentry projects to improve the tour experience. If you think of a project that you'd like to do - that would benefit the mill - you can propose it. 5) Leaf blowing the driveway a couple times a week. 6) Care and feeding of the resident birds the days you're on duty (ducks, chickens and turkeys), collecting eggs laid. 7) Opening and/or closing the facility gates. 8) The hosts also have the task of controlling the water level of the millrace during high water events (two evenings a week and during your shift on weekends), if there has been significant rain events within the last day or two. 9) Shared responsibility for monthly fire extinguisher checks (about a dozen extinguishers). There are two host couples in the park. Each works 3 half days and two full days, for a total of 28 hours each person. During slack visitation times, the "work" can be done from the comfort of your rig, if you like. Work weeks are either Saturday through Wednesday or Wednesday through Sunday. You work noon to 4 p.m. the first day after your weekend and 8:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. on the day before your weekend, giving you an extra half day off, each side of your weekend. There is a walking trail around the 20+ acre site, hiking trails, mountains, rivers, bike trails that run for many miles, museums, shopping, etc., nearby. The park provides water, 50 amp electric and sewer, with room to park any size rig, an annual state park pass and all tools (if any) needed to do your jobs. They would prefer a couple that could commit to the full two months because it will take up to a month to become proficient as a tour guide, given all the history that has to be learned. You can see a few photos of the mill and find phone numbers on the park website in the link below. http://www.oregonstateparks.org/index.cfm?do=parkPage.dsp_parkPage&parkId=186 You may send in a volunteer application, if you wish, using the link below. http://www.oregonstateparks.org/index.cfm?do=getinvolved.dsp_volunteerApply We've been here since November and have had a lot of fun, even with the rain. On edit: I should have mentioned that there is good cell and wifi service. Don
