Jaimie Hall Bruzenak and her late husband Bill Hall began full-time RVing in 1992, knowing they would have to work on the road. Applying to national parks, state parks and private employers, they both received job offers at Grand Teton National Park and worked their first summer as seasonal maintenance workers. Since then they have worked for six other national parks between them, volunteered at national parks and a national forest, sold Christmas trees, worked in tourist towns and as temporary tax season help.
Drawing on these years of experience, plus stories and experiences she collected over the years, Jaimie wrote a how-to manual for RVers who want or need to make money as they travel in their RVs. Jaimie is the Workamper Viewpoint editor of Workamper News and writes a regular column. She also writes for other RV magazines. In addition she has written along with co-author Alice Zyetz, RV Traveling Tales: Women’s Journeys on the Open Road and The Woman’s Guide to Solo RVing.
Jaimie has given seminars on Workamping at Workamper Job Fairs and at Escapades, The Rally and FMCA rallies. She recently instructed Workamper 101 and Workamper 102 for Workamper University.
Jaimie edits the RV Lifestyle Newsletter, blogs at “RV Home Yet?” and assists with moderating the Workamper News forums. She and her husband George Bruzenak now travel part-time. They traveled to Alaska in the summer of 2009.
