Wildlife Puzzles

As the COVID-19 pandemic drives us all indoors, here’s a way to bring the outdoors in!

Our high quality wildlife puzzles are created from our photographs of amazing wildlife encounters over the years of workamping, RVing and living in gorgeous remote areas across the US.

Join us in our wildlife memories!

Workamping for Fun

I found this post in my Drafts from a couple years ago.  I guess I’d decided not to post it on the grounds that it may incriminate me (ie, it may reveal my frustration).  But the frustrations are short-lived and now it’s just funny so I’m posting it:

Excerpts from our week of workamping:

Got this call late last night.

Camper:  “I’m in site 30. My car battery is dead.”  (The site has been changed to protect the ignorant.)

Area Manager: “What campground are you in?”   (We manage ten of them.)

Camper:  “Uh… I’m not sure.”

Area Manager: (We knew where they were by the site number.  We were just making them pay for waking us up.)  “I need to know what campground you are in.”

Camper:  “Hey!  What campground are we in?  Oh, Sutton.”

Area Manager:  “Now what is the trouble?”

Camper:  “My car battery is dead and I need to go to town to buy firewood.  Can you give me a jump start?”  (mind you, we sell firewood in the campground)

Area Manager:  “I’m not going to wake up my manager for that.”

Do you think he thought it was more polite to wake us up for a jump-start than to wake us to buy firewood?  Maybe he’ll be more prepared to camp next time?  And, by the way, why don’t campers carry a hatchet if they aren’t going to buy firewood?

U-turn Sign
U-turn Sign

When does “No U-turn” mean “turn around and go back”?

I am always surprised to see people try to make a U-turn right here in front of the sign.
