"It wouldn't work with dorms, but I think you could work at a ski resort. It seems like most of them don't have employee housing anyway."

Any families doing seasonal work?

My husband and I have thought long and hard about it and would love to be able to work our way around the country.  We have the skills that would enable us to excel in any position I believe, and are hard workers.  The catch?  Well, we have two kids, though they are old enough to stay home by themselves while we work.  Second catch?  We have two dogs, though one is very elderly and they are both VERY calm.Is there any chance we would be able to find employers with the accomodations for us, and…See More

How to get started?

When you first set out as a seasonal worker, what did you have to do? I am looking for any suggestions....gear I will need, money to save til I get paid the first time, RV information (think having an RV may be the best route for a family). What all did you do to prepare for life as a seasonal worker? Just trying to pull all the facts together because though my husband is up for it, he is very hesitant about it being a "hair brained idea". Trying to ease his mind, and not prolong our departure…See More

"So, here I am, seperated mother to two boys, and am dying to live my life now and join the world of traveling seasonal workers! Can this be done?? Will I be able to find places to work that could possibly accommodate a family? My husband may join us…"

"Maybe as a camp host? Also, I do know a few people in Denali that are managers that have their families with them, they are younger kids though, not in school yet."

Any traveling families out there?

I am ready for my husband and I to take to the road and spend 6 months to a year in different areas, getting different resort jobs, or whatever is available. However, we have two kids and two dogs. Is there anyone out there in this situation? I would be more than willing to homeschool or do online school for my boys and think the chance to first hand see the country would be invaluable, and something I would never be able to provide for them for vacation. Any suggestions or responses are…See More
