We are smack in the middle of the busy summer season here at the Williams Circle Pines KOA in Arizona.  With 50 to 70 check-ins a day, Dave and I have found ourselves working long hours.  Granted, it will slow down in a few months, but in the meantime, our schedules are pretty busy.

Living in campgrounds means that we are often miles away from the nearest store.  Running a business from my camper like I do, I have found that it is so much easier to do the majority of my shopping on line at places like

For one thing, it saves a whole ton of time…

We eat when we find a moment… and some meals are just plain peanut butter and jelly.

Work Kamping this time of year means dealing with crowds, tired campers, children on sugar highs, problems with guests not getting along, occasional backed up toilets, and all around craziness.  I work the office and it seems that everyone shows up all at once and dealing with 10 checkins at a time, with RVs lined up as far as you can see, can be quite intimidating.

Dave and I both work hard to keep the guests happy.  Sometimes it is as simple as helping their children learn how to use the rental bikes, or directing a guest to our favorite restaurant.  Sometimes it is much more difficult than that.  There are some folks that just won’t ever be happy.  We just do our best.

Working long shifts means that we don’t always have time to make the long drive to the nearest Walmart to shop.  Here at Circle Pines KOA, the Walmart is a 45 minute drive away.


This week, not only did I need craft supplies, but we needed to also stock up on motor oil and other necessities for our car and RV.  So I resorted to my old stand-by- on line shopping!

On line shopping saves me money and I can select from a wider variety of products quickly and easily.  I ordered Pennzoil motor oil and other supplies from  They showed up on my doorstep two days later!

So easy!


Dave loves to use Pennzoil Platinum Full Synthetic oil for the car.  According to him, it has the best cleanliness and protection in the Pennzoil line-up.  With PurePlus™ Technology, the Platinum® motor oil is proven to keep pistons up to 40% cleaner than the toughest industry standard. PurePlus™ Technology is a revolutionary process that converts natural gas into a 99.5% pure base oil.

He trusts Pennzoil products to help clean out sludge lesser oils leave behind and knows that Pennzoil will protect our engines for miles to come.

Which is very important when you travel full time!

Work Kamping isn’t for everyone, and there is definitely a lot of work involved.  But, there are good things too!  Like getting off after a long tiring day and checking out the sunset at the Grand Canyon.

Some things in life are priceless.
