Full time RVer - Curious about workkamping

So I have been living full time on my brother's property. Expenses have been minimal. I'm slowly getting adjusted to living in the RV full time. My buddy is soon to move in here with me. I am curious the best way to go about finding jobs while traveling. Both me and my buddy are young 26 years old. Both of us have degrees. I have 7 years experience working on C-130's and a bachelors degree in finance. He has his MA in psychology.

I was wondering how to go about planning this out.

Would we be able to work in one town for a month then drive to another town? Or do most places require longer term commitments?
Do most State parks have availability around this time?
What would you recommend?

Have you checked your professional orginazitations? Traveling nurses is a place medical professionals can go to look for contract jobs. Those jobs usually last 1 to 6 months.

I haven't checked with professional organizations yet. I'll have to give a look

Do you have your FAA A&P cert.? With 7 years on Hercs Iím guessing youíve got some military docs that would support an FAA issuance with no difficulty. Do you want to continue that line of work?

Thank you so much for sending me all these websites. I'll have to look through them more.

I really like how straighr forward Happyvagabonds.com is.

I like how most rv sites allow full hookups in exchange for a certain amount of volunteer hours each week.

No A&P license on hand. I do have a dd214. I have been considering getting certified for one. At this moment, mainly trying to find a way to travel and work.

Working online does interest me. I spent all of last year creating an e-commerce business selling coffee products. It didn't exactly go as planned b/c of my lack of experience in business. Learned a ton in the process.

I applaud your desire to work and travel. Is this a short term venture? Is your goal to be self-employed at some point?
If you have debt and plan to retire someday you'll need to start your investing soon so you have time working for you.
I hope you find a job that lets you travel without having to quit and find a new job each time you relocate.
