Resume

We are a family of 9, and love volunteering; please don't let our numbers scare you - when you choose us, you actually get more helpers for your money this way.

We are a full-time RVing family and between us we have lots of skills. We are active, and like keeping busy, so no job is too big or small.

  • John is a retired Air Force helicopter mechanic and an all around handy man. After retiring from the Air Force, he spent some time as a Tech writer, Handyman, and Farm Hand.  John holds a formal Bachelor's degree in Park Recreation and Leisure. John is also very friendly and has never met a stranger.  John has volunteer experience as woodcutter, and grounds & trail maintenance with the Corps. of Eng.  In his spare time he loves to Disk Golf.

  •  Christine is also ex-military (electrician on helicopters), writing professor, horticulture hobbyist, and road-schooling mom. Christine holds a formal MA in English with writing emphasis, an AA in Horticulture, and minor in women's studies and graphic design.  Christine has volunteer experience as camp host check-in, and running the Corps. of Engineers reservation system.

Together we make quite a team.  Before becoming a full-time RV family, we owned a 40 acre hobby farm in Iowa, so we are no strangers to mowing, weed eating, trail maintenance, and have been known to wrestled a few chickens, goats, and horses in that time.

In the summer of 2014, 2015, and again in 2016 (May to October), we were volunteers at the Corps of Engineer Park in North Liberty Iowa, Sugar-bottom campground, and have excellent recommendations from the rangers and our coworkers.
    
Here is also a bit of information about the kids.  We understand that for many reasons the children may not be able to formally help but they are great ambassadors, and I can guarantee they are an asset, not a liability.  

  • Hanna is the oldest, 14, and is a huge helper. She is great at cleaning up trails and trash, and an animal lover. She prefers to spend her time outside in nature. Hanna also has her fathers gift for making friends easily.
  • Lexi, 11, and loves to clean. She cleans things top to bottom, and also loves to organize. She is our go to person when something needs to be categorized, or sorted. She is also very personable and a people pleaser.
  • Maia, 9, is a free spirit and loves finding things. She enjoys keeping her world clean, and recycling what she finds. Maia is adventurous and passionate about her environment.
  • Ciara, 8, is a ray of sunshine and does not know a stranger.  She can talk to anyone and makes people smile from ear to ear.  
  • Johnny, 7, is an amazing helper for his age.  He enjoys playing with his cars, trucks, and tractors but has specific fascination with motorcycles.  Johnny is a great help keeping the playground areas clean, especially if there is sand involved.
  • The Twins -  Freya and Joclyn, 5, are still young and growing into good helpers; yet, they are active and adventurous, and we don't let their age slow us down.  If there is litter or trash around - they will not be happy until it is all cleaned up.

We are looking for a place where we can park our 40ft 5th wheel in exchange for volunteer services and possibly paid time. 

We all enjoy working, but would need one adult to stay with the children a majority of the time.

We understand that our family is not for everyone but if you think we might have possibilities for your park, please email us. We are game for just about anything.

Thanks so much for reading about us, 
Christine Trochesset
