We are Dave and Suzy Myers. In June of 2010, my husband and I made a major life decision. With the kids grown and gone,we were ready to begin a new chapter in our lives. But we really weren’t sure what that change would be.
Both of us had jobs in the city. I was an Executive Assistant in a huge corporation, and my husband was a Fleet Manager in another large company. Both of us were tired of the major commute (an hour and a half each way). Both of us were tired of our jobs; tired of city life; tired of the crowds. Let’s face it, we were just plain tired.
We needed to come up with a new plan.
I created the website, Suzy’s Sitcom, which focuses on arts, crafts and DIY. I also have a website called Daily Holiday Blog where I celebrate all those thousands of random holidays throughout the year.
Once the websites became successful, it was easier to put our plan into action. We quit our jobs, sold our house and everything in it, and hit the road!
We plan on seeing the country, and living the stress free life that we hope goes along with it.
We are driving a 2013 Itasca Meridian Class A Motorhome, and are traveling with our two Chugs (part Chihuahua, part Pug). We are learning the ropes as we go. And believe me, there is lots to learn! Join in our travels. You will soon see why I call it a Sitcom!
And the adventure begins…

Oh what fun Suzy!! Good for you guys. I’m just catching up on blogs – been a bit slack with that lately! Sounds like you’re having fun already. Just had a look at the tour of your new home – fabulous!! I’ll be following along your new adventures for sure! 🙂
I love my mobile sewin g adventure. We are also in Bar Harbor and really are glad to shed the Florida heat and enjoy the cool.
How fun. How did you learn about traveling and working at KOA’s?
There are lots of opportunities out there for seasonal work if you are traveling. We chose KOA because they have a great work camper program. It is a good way to get some experience. We may or may not stick with KOA depending on where we want to go, but in the meantime it works to help give us spending money and a spot to stay while we explore the country. We will be heading south to Florida to work at the KOA in St. Petersburg for the winter, and then will be heading west! It is an excited, new lifestyle!
Thank you for stopping by and commenting!!
Wow! I’m jealous. For just an instant, I am in an alternate dimension playing the role of Varuna Salt in Willy Wonka screaming, “I want a motor home!” Sadly, Willy Wonka tells me it’s not for sale and I have to wait a few more years. I hope you are having fun…….Isn’t the Dali museum there in St Pete?
Yes it is! We did not have a chance to check it out, but heard some great things about it!
I notice that you’ve got lots of great information relating to Acadia National Park on your website and I wondered if you would consider highlighting an additional resource?
SmokyMountains.com is the definitive guide to the Great Smoky Mountains National Park and surrounding areas and I think your visitors may be interested in the information if they are considering a visit.
It might be a good fit for inclusion on this page of your website – https://rvlifecamping.com/, but of course that’s up to you.
Give me a shout if you have any questions, and if I have reached you in error, please accept my apologies.
All the best
I now that you do a lot of crafting, however, do you ever give one on one lessons out of the RV? That is something that I would like to do in my free hours while Workamping. I have taught art in high school many years ago.
I have not done lessons out of the RV yet, but I am open to it. I love to teach Ukrainian egg art, painting, knitting, crochet and quilting. Well, I guess I love to teach most things. LOL! Anyway, many campgrounds openly look for arts and craft instructors to supplement their camping activities. If you are staying at a campground, ask the manager if you could post flyers. They may even provide you a space to teach!
Best of luck to you in your workamping experience! It is a small world out there. Maybe we will meet on the road!
Happy Friday Suzy,
I would like to know are there many people of color (different races )working at the campgrounds across the United States? When reviewing different campgrounds, I don’t see different cultures. I am wondering if this is part of “The Good, Bad and the Ugly “, that you have written about?
Actually, work camping allows us to deal with a hugely diverse group of people both as coworkers and as campground guests. Work campers are an amazing bunch of people.
