Taking your job... and life... on the road via 'workamping'
If someone asks Mike Gelinas where he lives, he’ll answer, but it’ll take a while.
You see, for Gelinas, 57, that’s an essay question.
He and his wife are practitioners of a lifestyle devotees call workamping.
Two years ago, they sold their house and everything in it to buy a 35-foot recreational vehicle. The Canadian couple has driven all over North America ever since, working temporary jobs at stops along the way.
Today they work at a campground in Clewiston, Fla. Before that, they worked at the Lake Isabella KOA in Weldon.
“The nice thing about this lifestyle is you can come and go as you wish,” he said. “When I was in the shirt and tie, four walls world, if I had a boss I didn’t like I just dealt with it, ’cause that’s the boss.
“Now, if things aren’t going as I’d like, I just put the RV in drive and go.”
