Soon to be fulltimer

Hello all.

I am a 43 year old single parent to two children who is very excited to begin full timing this spring.

We have located a 83 Pace Arrow which my sister knows the PO and states everything works perfectly in it. Needs some definite cosmetic work but seems to be a fun project as well. Lot is only asking $4500 (little high but will finance self at $100/mo and price includes interest).

In the 'getting to know fulltiming' phase we are fortunate enough to have a convenient resort on the river a mere 2 miles from my sisters house (childcare gonna play an important role as we adjust and learn) for an easy fallback and maintenance plan while we 'tweak' our knowledge and expectations.

This is something Ive hoped to do all my life and I finally decided WTH Im not getting any younger LOL...

Ive loved working at resorts on the Missouri rivers in the past and am looking forward to the work hard, play harder lifestyle while not being chained to the sticks and bricks!

Resort has already emailed that they would like to speak with us as early as March when they hire ONE person to begin getting the campground ready for the season. ATM I have mentioned (as seems fairly standard) that first 20 hrs I would work to pay for the 'full hookup' on site, and that we would then negotiate hourly wages for any work preformed over the 20 hours. They seemed very open and excited (not sure they have done a workamping hire in the past) of the prospect.

Sounds like a great way to ease into things. I hope your children love it as much as you do, since children may get sick of it.

I would love to follow with my children, but I dont feel like listening to family comments over it. If it wasn't for that I would be gone.

Oh the joy of having adult children... As much as I loved raising my family in those days, is as much as I enjoy my empty nest status these days. But of course there is the old axiom, "once a parent, you're a parent for life."

I hope that you folks enjoy living the RV lifestyle with a young family. For me, it seems like a lot of work. Our yearly camping trips for two weeks was enough for my two that close to mom and dad for an extended period of time was too much for the boys...
