"Mark, Sounds like you're searching every avenue. I don't know if the average person (retired school teachers included) can ever quit working in this economy. I'm retired from teaching but certainly not debt free after getting three…"

"The way I see it is you can probably find a job close to home making what you'll make doing seasonal work. The difference is that seasonal work has great locations if your a nature lover. Too many people it's worth the trade off. To others…"

I have not worked at Grant, but it is a great store; a lot of the staff return for more than one season.  With an RV, you have control of your space during your after work time and you can opt to participate in the meal plan.  I strongly suggest you do this; otherwise, you are going to be driving to Jackson or Cody for groceries.  Grant is a fabulous location...you can't go wrong being there!
