Seasonal ranger from Virginia
Hello! My name is Vickie, and I'd like to introduce myself.
I am currently living a rather unpredictable but enjoyable life. I have a wonderful job, which is, alas, seasonal. I work summers in state parks or more recently the National Park Service. It's great, but I have spent all summer in park housing, desperately missing my cat and pet rats that had to stay in VA with my parents. In June I started researching ways to make nationwide seasonal work more feasible without leaving my furballs behind.
I intended on buying a used RV, but when I got to the dealership, the ones I liked the most had been sold. There were a few new ones in my price range. I did some weighing of pros and cons and ended up buying a 2014 Wildwood 26TBSS.
It fits all I'm looking for. The bunk space will be my "pet corner," and the pocket doors helped sell it for me as a way to close off my cat Lily if needed. I don't have a tow vehicle yet. My dad's van can move it in an emergency, and in the meantime, I figure I can hire someone to move it when I find my next job.
I'm very excited about this new lifestyle. It gives me a new sense of both flexibility and stability that I was searching for when renting apartments and trying to move with (or miserably without) pets.
