We've had some comments and emails recently from quite a few new readers asking why we're so far north in the cold when it looks like we don't really need to be.
So we just thought we would explain again, in a little more detail!
We've been traveling pretty much full time for almost six years now. When we sold our house and bought a motorhome, we were only 45 years old. That's pretty young to be considered "retired" and so we never put ourselves into that category.
We always figured we would go back to work at some point, and this past winter we came across an opportunity that we thought we would enjoy, that we thought we would be good at, and that would enable us to continue traveling more than not!
And so we accepted an offer to manage a campground in the middle of Saskatchewan, Canada!
Go to http://www.saskregionalparks.ca/ and click the drop down box where it says "Pick a Park". It's called Sturgeon Lake Regional Park.
It's a fairly small campground, with 35 sites. It's on a nice looking lake, with a beach and boat rentals, and apparently some pretty good fishing for those so inclined!
We have a five month contract, and we have to be there April 24th, rain, snow, or shine! We have a two bedroom "cabin" as part of our contract, so hopefully some of our friends and family will be able to visit over the next few months.
Hopefully some of our RV'ing friends will come camping for a day or two or more. We would LOVE to have visitors over the summer season, and as campground managers we guarantee you'll have a good time. Sorry, can't guarantee the weather though. Or the mosquitoes! But that's pretty typical for any campground. Either way, we would love to see you there and we look forward to telling you all about the place over the next few weeks.
