RV's anyone??? - page 30

Haven't traveled for almost 7 years. Am contemplating a return. Don't want to do the extensive move every thirteen weeks thing I did in 1990's and am thinking I want to purchase a "Toy Hauler" to... Read More

    I remembered this thread fro awhile back and dug it up. I am wondering what happened to Rod....

    Not really, maybe just a bit lazy. I come back to Florida to be near my youngest daughter. Have been to the same facility for the past 5 years and it's pretty easy to fit back in. Am doing a return in Iowa this spring and have done several other return assignments. It's just easier.

    The problem comes when they beg you to stay. It's very nice to be wanted but if it starts causing guilt that you are leaving maybe you have been there too long. I strongly believe I will continue to be a Travel Nurse until I am no longer able to travel. Staying at least 6 months in a position seems to be a little more financially smart though. The amount paid to "Travel" from one place to another hasn't changed in the 20+ years I have been doing this, but the price of fuel and other things certainly have. I guess when I wrote the previous post I was thinking of the $1000 in fuel I will need to move my home from Florida to Iowa. I won't use it all but I'm sure I will spend that much filling it up once enroute and again at the end. In 1989 I got $300 to go from Iowa to California. Drove a Toyota Celica pulling a trailer and probably had a couple bucks left at the end of the trip. Still get $300 travel money and it won't fill the fuel tanks even once.

    How do you plan for finding places to camp and how much they cost? Is it way to find places near hospitals?

    In short, Google! You can use maps to search for parks near assignments that agencies tell you about before you decide to be submitted.

    There is a good guidebook for RV sites, not sure what it is, but Google will help. I think it is put out by Good Sam.

    rvparkreviews.com is very useful for us. At least gives me location and contact info for where we will park the trailer next.
