So, planning for the Nicaragua trip is 99.9% complete. Now it’s just figuring out what to do beforehand to make some extra cash. We listed all sorts of crap on Craigslist and Amazon: hopefully some will sell. It’s finally yard sale season, so we’ll be getting rid of things left and right.
We have both been applying for different jobs in the area, though I have not been as successful. I still have my odd jobs, though. The best part is that I can maintain my webediting job, even in Nicaragua. We have also begun the application process in a lot of camps across the US. We could tutor ceramics, rock climbing, hiking, whatever. Hopefully we’ll be able to find a place that can accomodate us both.
All in all, the goal is to be in Nicaragua by December, if not before. We are going to leave Prescott by May 01. Hopefully, as stated before, we will be heading to work at a camp, where not only will we be getting paid good money, have free room and board, but we’ll be helping others. Can’t beat that.
If not, our options are limited. We COULD keep living here in Prescott, but the job scene is not so good. We COULD go door to door and essentially beg for a job, which I have done many times before, but we don’t want to. So we won’t. We COULD move back to OB and live there for a little while, and we’d definitely find work there. But OB sucks. We would never go back there if our families weren’t there. Regardless, we won’t stay long.
Best case scenario: We work at a kids camp from May to August or September, then go back to OB for a month to visit family, then jet off to Central America.
Wish us luck.
