Coming in your RV?

 
There are plenty of beautiful campsites to park your rig around Greers Ferry Lake. The closest RV parks to the action are managed by the US Army Corps of Engineer parks and feature paved sites, tucked into the pines along the waters edge of the lake. The two closest are the Dam Site and JFK campgrounds; they are both about 1 mile from the Heber Springs Community Center where most of the Rendezvous action will be. Camping costs will not be included into your cost to attend; please be prepared to take care of your camping costs.

Best Thing I’ve Ever Done…

This was one of the best things I've ever done! After 4 years of full-timing I thought I knew a lot but no, i found out so much in a short time. Everyone was so helpful and excited about what was going on.

Rendezvous Rocks…

Rendezvous Rocks! You'd think after 2 previous Rendezvous' that there wouldn't be anything left to learn. WRONG! If you aren't actively learning and growing - you might as well be sitting in a rocking chair going nowhere and waiting to be put 6 foot under!

Truly Inspirational…

This was my first time to attend, but it will not be the last. I've enjoyed this so much. I especially enjoyed visiting with experienced Workampers. It was truly inspirational.

I Wouldn’t Change A Thing…

Could be the most beneficial time I've spent in a conference setting. Not only did the individual classes provide information and inspiration, the roundtables and large group sessions were a confirmation of things I have thought of but done nothing about. I wouldn't change a thing!

So Many Resources…

Anyone interested in the RV lifestyle needs to experience a Rendezvous. I know of nowhere where so many resources can be found in one place – face-to-face interaction is by far more informative than reading or watching DVDs, etc. The opportunity to talk to those who have made this decision and living the RV lifestyle was very positive.

Much More Knowledgable Now…

Great classes. The roundtable discussions were great; they brought up topics we didn’t even know to ask questions about, like insurance and mail forwarding. I am much more knowledgeable now about the lifestyle.

SO Well Organized…

This Workamper Rendezvous was SO well organized! Each & every seminar was well prepared and clearly presented and there were plenty of places to make notes in the smartly organized personalized binders. Things were well timed and fun to attend. It seemed that every little detail was thought of, including a page to make new friends/connections. We've been made to feel VERY welcome. BRAVO!

Given Us The Complete Picture…

We have just started our dreaming and looking at full-time RVing (in 3 years or so). The Rendezvous has given us the complete picture of working – from start to full-time employment. We now have a very clear idea on what Workamping is all about and how to proceed. We’ve met a lot of great people and got ideas from others that probably wouldn’t have occurred to us. We expect to attend future Rendezvous to learn more.

Very Enlightening…

This has been a very enlightening few days. I feel much more at ease with our decision to leave our present job and go down the road in our fifth wheel. Becoming Gold members opens a door to so much information and help that will be very valuable to us. We are getting several books and CDs that will give us even more guidance to smooth the road ahead. I am very excited about the potential of the lifestyle.
