We need odd jobs

 How do we fund our travels? We find odd jobs on the road. We look on Craigslist in the towns we pass thru and generally put an ad in the ‘Resume’ section of Craigslist. We also work for our followers and their friends and family. If you want to help us out and have some odd job you want taken care of send us an email!

I usually charge $15/hr cash at the end of each day or a barter for things I need. If you have a place we could camp for a couple days while we work for couple days that would be great!

Since we camp in free campsites we have no need to work for our campsite only.  While we are there you can ask all the questions you want and might learn right along with me as we go further into a self sustaining life on the road.

I love to learn about different jobs... have something interesting? Make me an offer!
