Musings on the Fulltime RV Lifestyle

Bless me father, for I have strayed. It’s been 5 months since my last blog post…

Since leaving the Badlands in October, I traveled to Nashville to work for Amazon again, then followed the Natchez Trace south and veered off to Texas where I’ve been volunteering for 3 months. Despite the fact that I was gifted with free hi-speed internet service here, I have not felt moved to post about my travels. I thought about it a dozen times or so, but never felt ready to write until now. (more…)

Body, Mind & Spirit Unite at Amazon CamperForce

As a longtime yoga practitioner and teacher, I see everything as an opportunity for spiritual growth, even the workplace. Especially the workplace! This is where we trade what we can DO so that later on we can just BE. Or is that the wrong attitude? How about…This is where we can practice just BEING in the midst of DOING. (more…)

The Many Benefits of Working for Amazon Camperforce

Note: This is a personal blog post and in no way represents the opinions, interests, or intentions of Amazon.com. This is solely my opinion which may change at any time.

I signed up to work for Amazon before I’d even purchased my RV, knowing I’d need to supplement my income on the road. In exchange for a salary of $10.75/hr plus overtime and bonuses, I received a full hookup site. The friendships made along the way were icing on the cake. (more…)

All About Amazon – My 1st CamperForce Experience

Note: This is a personal blog post and in no way represents the opinions, interests, or intentions of Amazon.com. This is solely my opinion which may change at any time.

During my 6+ months of research into the full-time RVing lifestyle, I read others’ blogs about seasonal and location independent jobs including working at Amazon CamperForce in one of four fulfillment centers in TX, TN, IN and KY. A little nervous about my ability to earn enough money to support myself while on the road, I applied to work for CamperForce a few days before I even bought Gypsy! In addition, I maintain a part-time freelance job in online communications and workcamp whenever possible. (more…)

Campground Review – Tennessee Hills Campground, Manchester, TN

One of the six area campgrounds under contract with Amazon, Tennessee Hills Campground in Manchester, TN was a delightful surprise after moving out of Music City Campground. Nestled high on a hill, surrounded with colorful autumn leaves, it was just the spot for both quietude and community. I parked here from mid-October until just after Christmas.

The campground was built by the present owner’s step-father in the early sixties. Water is supplied via a clear flowing creek. There was a swimming pool (covered for the season), playground, and shelter where everyone was invited to share in potluck meals and BBQ’s. (more…)

Campground Review – Music City Campground, LaVergne, TN

Note: Since my last campground review I revised a couple of criteria labels and added Noise Level, one of the key factors that will make or break a site for me.

The city limit sign for Music City, otherwise known as Nashville, TN, is just down the road from Music City Campground in LaVergne, TN. It was one of six campgrounds contracted for use by Amazon Camperforce workers in Murfreesboro, TN. By the time I received my start date in August, the other five options had already filled up, and there was one spot left here. I took it! (more…)
