    Well, tomorrow is the first smoke test to see how feasible working on the road from my RV is. It is just a two week trip, but should be sufficient as a proof of concept to have my boss sign off on the idea. Every day, I get another step closer to the ful...  more

        5 hours ago I am staying at a national park that appears to have good coverage with my primary cellular data provider. I have a back up plan with a different provider. And if all else fails, there are a couple of commercial parks with wifi. So fingers crossed.

    Thank you for adding me to this group. I have a question - I would like to come out of full retirement and work part-time from home. Does anyone do this and if so, what is it that you are doing? All suggestions welcomed. Thank you, in advance, for your assistance.

        Mon at 9:23 AM I was taught as a youngster that "playing the stock market" is legalized gambling for rich folk, and my observations since then, now at age 90,  support that view.  I've never had the money to gamble with.

      Mon at 1:55 PM There are many part time jobs you can do from home or the RV even. All depends on your skillset and interests. In addition to "workamper" as mentioned above, look at "weworkremotely.com" (this one is free to join) or "flexjobs.com"(small cost).

      Tue at 10:29 AM If you full time RV, consider working part time at one of 100s of RV camps. Most are always needing someone to work in the office or store. I don’t know of any stay at home jobs outside of doing surveys. I tried that, but it did not work for me. Check out...  more

      September 23 Using your internal tank, and not connecting a fresh water hose, is the safest. Your furnace will heat the tanks while you are there, but you will have to winterize each time.

      September 23 Thanks for the advice!  I do have a basement and the furnace should keep it above freezing!  I forgot about that! I may be able to use a 12v heating pad if my solar system can keep up! So far it's only 600 Watts, but it will grow with a ground m...  more

      September 22 Also...there are several rest areas along I-70 in KS that have dump stations if you need one.  On my way down to Florida last month, I just stayed at a rest area near Wakeeney (I think that's how you spell it....).
