Working on the Road: Month Two – Balancing Work and Play

I’m not just a remote employee, I’m REALLY remote.   I’m becoming more comfortable with slower internet in realizing that it’s not impacting my work as long as the latency is low and the net is flowing. This allows us to be more flexible where we are staying and I have a lot less stress. Now, that I am done with stressing over the internet and I have a new issue…balancing work and play.

 

I bet your thinking the struggle is in too much play and not enough work, right?  You’d be wrong.

The Ebb and Flow of Stuff: Month One.

It had only been a few days when we started to realize what was staying, what was going and what we needed.

Thousand Trails Three Flags RV Campground

Three Flags is the third park we’ve stayed in the thousand trails system. Florida has 3 parks that are included in the southeast zone. This one feels the oldest and most rundown despite obvious work and improvements. They are renovating the park in certain areas and attempts are being made to clean the place up. It is also the smallest of the 3 Florida parks. We heard lots of complaints on the internet that it’s a dump and poorly run. I have to say you should take these people’s comments with a grain of salt. We have friends who complain about how terrible a restaurant is and when we go there we love it. While the park is older and smaller than we’ve seen and definitely needs some upgrades. We found it to be an acceptable place to stay and did enjoy being here. In short I would not hesitate to book another stay.
