October Itinerary: Tennessee to Kentucky Loop

1366238516-bm4 Music in Nashville gets another honorable mention because we are so excited about it, even though technically it’s happening in September. Truth be told, I wasn’t a big fan of country music until the TV show Nashville last fall. Now I’m hooked on the show and hope the city is a spitting image and offers as much good music.

There are 2 reasons we are making a big figure eight from Tennessee out to D.C. then back to Kentucky. First, we didn’t get to visit Lin’s aunt & uncle in Middleburg, VA, just outside of D.C. because we had the rush to get to the B&B conference. Second, we got hired to work at Amazon for the holiday season.

amazon Amazon has a workcamper program designed for RV’ers whereby they pay above minimum wage and the campground fees in trade for long hours in their warehouse. We agreed to work four, 10 hour days for two months, which will likely be 10 hours a day 5 days a week since overtime is mandatory. We also agreed to walk 10-15 miles a day in the 1,000,000 sq. ft warehouse. A mini boot camp of sorts with a financial benefit. We learned of this opportunity through another blog as we were preparing for our trip and this resonated with Lin and her manufacturing background. Besides, it will give us some concentrated time to really and truly sort out ‘what’s next’. All we know about January is that we’ll be heading back to the West Coast.
