        Carl and Brandi Tue at 8:49 PM Yuma, Cal-Am? I think I just asked about whether you need to be 55+ for that! Lol. Yuma looks like it would be warm, so we'd be willing.

      Carl and Brandi Wed at 7:48 AM Raptor- thanks for that info. We absolutely love hanging around with "old" people, but haven't been applying to 55+ places because we thought we were disqualified. Is there a specific place in Yuma?

        Raptor Pack RVing (Team Wilson) Wed at 8:06 AM We’ve stayed at so many parks here in Yuma. Del Pueblo RV on 3E has been home for a few years but Westwind RV and Arabs Acres are nice too. If a 55+ park has spaces available, they have to allow those under 55 to stay there. Federal Law. Falls under the a...  more

      Solo Joe Mon at 3:56 PM I agree with LarandSus . Please post details. Maybe the owner's wife did something that was totally unacceptable to you but might have been perfectly acceptable to me.

      NW Kathy B October 11 Wow that's pretty crummy without any pre-warning to tell you that you need to step it up or something. You need to make sure you put this on Workamper for other workampers to know how you were treated.
    • Mark & Sue Wilson
      Jan Gemeinhardt October 11 Where was this, which RV Park? I was looking into Hilton Head for workamping as not that far from NE Florida where we lived until full-time...I think them letting you go without a warning to step it up stinks.. Was this a paying job or strictly FHU-site for work.
