Couple Finds Peace & Quiet In Wildlife Refuge Host Job

Well--it's almost RV boondocking: They do have a sewer hookup, but out in the "boonies" of Alabama's Wheeler National Wildlife Refuge, it's about as different as "city RVing" as you can get. "They" are Lee and Judy Bransford, your typical fulltimers from Anywhere, USA.

The Bransfords are like many folks who exchange a few hours of work--in their case a 24-hour week--for a free RV site with great views. When these leaves come off these trees, it's going to be beautiful," Judy Bransford said. The Bransfords are volunteering a 3-month stint at the refuge, and from there, they'll be back on the road again.

Ever wondered what it would be like to take a "host assignment"? Check out the comments of these hosting first-timers in the story in the Decatur Daily News.

  1. We are on our third assigment with the FWS. We have chosen to pick a new location each time. They have a tremendous need for volunteer help. They treat us wonderfully. We have already lined up our spring 2008 location in the south and are working on a New England location for late summer. If the word gets out we can always make room for another rig.
