Our first workamping gig

Coyote Valley RV Resort
Morgan Hill, CA

Well, we're all set up and ready to begin our first workamping job.

Months ago we answered a listing on workamper.com
to help out at Coyote Valley RV Resort

We were actually supposed to start on January 3rd,
but the owner called us in early.
We were more than happy to oblige,
as it saves us quite a bit of $$!

It's a nice park, with all kinds of amenities,
including a hot tub!

Tomorrow we'll be shadowing the other
workamper couple, Jim & Jeannie.
We'll be escorting people to their sites,
collecting trash & recyclables at sites, 
filling propane,
and preparing empty sites for new RVrs.
Sounds like a simple job!
We only have to work 28 hours total
for this beautiful site.

My parents took a ride up to see our new home,

and even brought us dinner!

It is going to be nice to be spending time 
with family for Christmas,
and 4 months of spending time in California in general!


  1. Sounds like a great job to me, I would love to do that someday! Very interested in how it works out for the two of you.

  2. Sounds like a great gig....glad you got to see family and will be with them for Christmas :)

  3. Congratulations! Let us know how it's going.

    Merry Christmas.

  4. Congrats on the gig! Sounds like it will be a good one with lovely surroundings. Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to you both!

  5. 28 hours a week is amazing for two people. Can you split it up any way you want?? Sounds like it's going to be perfect for you.

  6. Really great that you got a good workcamping job and it is so close to family!! Wishing you the best for the New Year!!

  7. Looks like a really nice campground and only 28 hours a week. Good deal! Enjoy your family over Christmas.

  8. Congrats on landing on your new workamping job early. Looks like a great place to sork and play.

    Looking forward to seeing how it all goes and visits with your family. :c)

  9. So nice to be with family on Christmas. Good to be settled in for a while too but believe me, the old hitch itch will pop up long before time to pull out.

  10. What a nice campground, and a bonus that you're near your parents. Wonderful that you'll be able to spend Christmas together.

  11. Sounds like you are off to a good start. Hope you enjoy it as much as I did this last summer. Merry Christmas to you both.

  12. What an excellent deal! Hope everything works out the way you want it to.

    Merry Christmas!

  14. Looks like a great deal and great place. Enjoy your time with family!
