      Mary and Rollie Working for a corporate RV Resort has its challenges. Also the fact that last year they had several workampers not show up so this year they over-hired. Not enough work to keep us all busy. We might be leaving early. But Maine is beautiful! Hotter than we...  more

      Kepouros The campground changed hands a month after we got here. Went from on site owner/managers to no manager w/part-time owner on site. It's been a challenge.

    I am very curious about the Beet Harvest...wondering if anyone has some real-life experience with the process. The idea of making 2500.00 for just a few weeks of work is very attractive but I wonder how realistic that figure is. The long work days don't s...  more

      Carl and Brenda We worked it in 2016 and made good money—about $4,000 each. Most of October, with a lot of partial days due to weather— too hot, too cold, too wet, too windy. We’re planning to back this year.

      Leonard I did it twice. The first year I made $3,500 & the second year $4,000. I'm scheduled to do it again this year.

        SouthParkSteve I don't know about that--September always seemed worse than July.  Maybe it was dodging the hurricanes, or maybe it was just that I had to endure the heat and humidity AND school all at the same time....  
      • Strider
        Strider I know what you men, but seems to be hot no matter where you are this summer.
      • Strider
        SouthParkSteve It's been in the mid to upper 70s all summer up here in the mountains of Colorado, with humidity in the single digits.  One of the reasons I left Florida for Colorado......

        Just sayin'......  ;)

        Mary and Rollie I hear ya! Gotta dodge this humid heat. Thought Maine would be cool... looking at the Rockies next summer.

      Chuck & Bernadette Allstays is a good source, you can filter for just boon docking to help eliminate the clutter of pin points, also try https://www.frugal-rv-travel.com/RV-Travel-Guide.html, this is a purchase but has been useful for me.
