I've just joined the forum although I've been a fulltimer for 10 years. We have been workamping and haven't really had good internet access. My husband and I are currently gate attendants for the Corp of Engineers and one of the perks is to be able to have a landline and a line for Wi Fi internet service.
I am a Mother of two, step-mother of 3 others, grandmother of 11, great-grandmother of 11, I think. Hard to keep track. We left our house behind with furniture intact for my daughter and her family to rent in 1998 when my husband was laid off from his job. Not knowing what the future held and with our 33' 5th wheel "retirement home" sitting in the driveway, we left for a state park in the area to live for the winter. I still worked as an admin in Dallas and he shortly got a job in Ft. Worth. We moved to a park in Ft. Worth that spring and was there for a whole 3 months before his new company moved to Plano. We were lucky that our home was on wheels! We lived there until 6 years ago when we moved to Waco and began volunteering for the Corp of Engineers for a spot while we still worked.
After 1 1/2 years, we moved to Lake Whitney State Park and were volunteers there for a while. We finally bid on a COE job at Lake Whitney and got it. This is the 3rd year. The contracts are for 6 months, then you bid another. This October (winter season) we are taking off and just volunteering. They don't require but 15 hours per couple a week and last year was able to take off a whole month and went to Quartzsite, AZ for that experience.
We came back with a new motorhome, a 39' 2003 Newmar Mountain Aire, gasoline with 2 slides. This is our 4th and final rig. We absolutely love it. Nice to meet you, ladies.
