"I worked for the National Park Service as a seasonal VUA. Ioved it there, and went back for 5 seasons. I can't speak for the concessionaire, though. I think people either hate it or love it, depending on what their job is. The weather is nice…"

"Denise, not only CAN you but lots of people do. There is an employee campground at the North Rim where people who work for the park service and who work for Forever Resorts live."

About Me:
My hubby and I sold our house and all our "stuff" in 2000, now we live full time in a travel trailer. We work at campgrounds and resorts to make a living. Last summer we worked in Gettysburg, PA. The summer before that we worked at a campground on a river in Virginia. This season we are working for the National Park Service at the North Rim of the Grand Canyon!

I write a blog about our everyday life living in a travel trailer. I interview people at places we go, and write about what we see and do during our travels.

Thanks for the reply.I'm sure there is something out there perhaps small and private. Some people wait for there children to leave(never had children) but have these wonderful creatures.

I've sold most of my stuff also but still have a horse and dog wonder if there is any place out there that takes the entire family

Hi Karen, Thanks for your reply. Hey, we're laid back people, so don't worry about the little lag in communications there. You had a good reason! I want so bad to take off this summer, and even to let this become a part of my lifestyle year round eventually. I just have to get rid of my house first, and I think I'd be lucky at this point to even pay it off. I had offers to Mesa Verde-crossed that off. Grand Targhee Resort-it sounds good, but you have to pay so much just to stay there-so probably not there either, and Martha's Vineyard-the same thing. Can you tell me about the jobs, housing, etc. at the North Rim? Where ever I go, I need to have my own place, or at least, someone more my age. Can't handle the party scene anymore. I have 2 girlfriends who may work at the South Rim. They are drivers, as am I. Any info at all would be appreciated. Thanks so much, and enjoy the view! Cathy

Hi Karen, I'm new to this form of communication, but find it so interesting to be able to communicate with a variety of people doing something that I hope to do some time in the future. You say you work at the North Rim? What exactly is your job? Is this your first job? Was it difficult to acquire? Very interested in the process.

Thanks and I hope to hear from you soon.

Do you ever come back for a visit? How long have you been doing this? Was it hard to get started and about how long did it take you before you were accepted? Questions, Questions!!! I want to find something in September, I know that is off season for most places but I am willing to go full time right now if I can find something. Of all the places you have been which one did you like best? Oh, by the way I live in Fairfield, do you know where that is. Is your husband from Douglasville? Well, thanks for writing back. Talk to you soon. Margret
