LTRVD0361 Workamping National Parks


We discuss Workamping National Parks in a segment where Kathy discusses working for a concierge company that supplies seasonal workers for our National Parks. One of the companies we know well is Xanterra, who supplies workers for the Grand Canyon among other locations.

We talk at length about what people think they should have known more about before starting out in the RV lifestyle. This came from a question asked on our Living the RV Dream Facebook group. The question was “What’s the one thing you wish you had known or learned about before beginning the RV lifestyle?” Kathy and I did our take and advice on some of the answers to that inquiry.

We’ll be moving back to the Horseshoe Cove RV Resort at the end of the month and continuing the planning for this year’s Gathering rally in October from the 11th to the 16th. For more information, send an email to

We also asked if anyone has information on electric bikes as we are considering getting them. Please respond to on that and any other topics or questions.
