Money on the road

Hi, I was wondering if anyone knew of a great site to find temporary work. Just basic manual labor, etc. I checked usajobs.gov for National Park Service jobs but they all seem to be 6 month positions. I'm looking more for 1 month or less (because I want to travel! hah). I sure could use the help. Just any tips on making money over the road without a college education would be great! Thanks

Google for 'workamping' - those would be jobs that are geared to RVers and have shorter commitments.

Okay! I'll look into workcamping, thanks! So it's not just working at an RV site in order to stay there for free? 'Cuz I plan on boondocking most of the time

True - not all workamping jobs are within campgrounds. There are companies like Amazon that hire travelers. Check out www.workamper.com

I think if I was looking for short term gigs, I would look at temp agencies. I use to do temping a while back, and found that there are some good short term options. There are agencies that specialize in office-type positions, and others that do trades, and also day labor. Seems like most towns have a temp agency or two.

Good luck!

I have washboard abs. They are just hidden under 50#s of laundry.
