    • So instead of having kids playing you might have women knitting and chatting, men having discussion groups, someone teaching yoga classes, etc.
    • A subgroup of the Escapees RV Club is the Xscapers group.  There are typically on the younger side and many have children.  Many also work from their RV so they may be able to answer you questions.  I believe they have an active Facebook site. https://www.escapees.com/community/xscapers/ Also, you would need your own wifi setup and not rely on RV parks.  This couple could help to answer questions. They are also Xscapers.  Look under their Technology link for good setup info: https://www.technomadia.com/ I really doubt a RV park clubhouse would let you set up a workspace daily.  The clubhouse is used for activities.
    • We've volunteered a lot during our 16 years of full-timing.  Kirk gave some good resource information and as he stated, the national parks will usually want a 3 month commitment.  Fish and Wildlife shorter times and state parks shorter times.  If you want interpretative Oregon State Parks are a good choice.  We gave lighthouse tours at Heceta Head Lighthouse & I see they have an opening for 2022. We also did South Manitou Island Lighthouse summers in Michigan - Sleeping Bear Dunes Nat'l Lakeshore.  Also gave tours at Kartchner Caverns State Park, AZ.  Check the park volunteer sites for more openings.  Good luck!  It gives you a good feeling to help our parks out since they are so short-funded.  They will all have space for your RV.  We also volunteered at a local school with their early elementary reading program.  Many volunteer opportunities out there and with a little experience they will then be easier to come by. https://stateparks.oregon.gov/index.cfm?do=get-involved.volunteer-opening&oppId=872
    • Chalkie, there's nothing wrong with your eyes nor your leveling ability, it is the oven's inherent weak point; poor fan design. Try an experiment. Stop your next batch half-way through and change the direction of the pan then complete the cooking cycle. Observe results to test my theory. Our convection/microwave does the same as Marks, this is due to the fan in one end of the oven blowing heat to one area of the oven more than keeping the circulation even. Even our convection  GE oven at home will bake faster nearer to the circulating fan. BTW  folks look up the definition of convection. It only means circulating. This is  only a 1,500W electric oven in convection mode. Further complicating this is the combination convection-plus-microwave cooking mode some higher-end ovens tout. This prevents using ordinary metal in the oven, a feature I've never used. For others; the turntable is automatically disabled when convection is selected in a Sharp brand. This is because a metal rack must be put in to raise the cupcake pan to the middle of the oven. Convection cooking without the metal rack/stand is not recommended, the bottom seldom gets done unless the top gets over-cooked.  
    • Kirk, you asked me to update how my ac gasket/coil clean went.... Am very pleased on Day1. So fortunate to have found a very competent mobile rv tech. Doubly lucky as he ran into a loose rivnut on one of the four hold-down bolts that would have been a major stoppage if I'd gone the DIY route, and he immediately remedied that by pinning the spinning nut with a couple of screws to fix it in place, which I'd neither had the awareness nor the tools to do. Classic example of the pro's make it look easy. For the gasket change, ac flip or upright? He was happy to do it upright for me though when he noted he's been setting them on their side for many years with not a single problem, I went with the flip. Was turned on as soon as done and worked fine. Far better than before as the evaporator coil was quite dirty, and drilled larger holes for the condensate drain. And was patient with the many questions I had along the way.  Even charged on the more modest side for the long time he was here to boot. He serves the greater area around Cottonwood AZ in case this could ever be of value to another. A ranger at Dead Horse State Park which gets a fair amount of rv traffic referred me, saying he's the best in this region. https://yourrvmedic.com/ Thank you and all other commenters, as it made me more aware of the landscape, better prepared to make choices.
