Excellent Way for People to Travel
What an excellent way for people to travel and is a second career for some.
I put a resume together after trying to find out what I really wanted to do. I was a nurse in the ER for a couple decades and am now enjoying the freedom that I've always set as my goal. Loved to travel, but not much opportunity for 20 years.
I was so busy with my career, raising my boys, and once the last son was graduating, I put the house up for sale. Bought our RV, flew from MN to CA and took a month coming back. I knew this was for me.
My employer actually found us via our Awesome Applicants Resume and sent me an email with an invitation to come join the resort they own in Kabetogama National Forest. We had about 20 other invites, but the others really didn't fit my idea of a good time. This couple has owned Northern Lights Resort 4 years now and have had many tough blows with weather, employees not showing up, and trying to maintain this beautiful resort. We made it here May 1 and today, it's still a good fit. The work is hard, however, we helped pull it all together with them and a second Workamper couple. The sunsets, family feel to the resort, and smiles on the guests' faces make all that work and effort seem like nothing. And the fishing...just saying.
