Comments about the piece:
Jaimie is such a great representative for Escapees and women RVers!!! Mary and Elaine
You did a wonderful job, look beautiful before a camera, and had such a great positive spin on particularly solo camping. The NBC coverage this winter from Campbellsville gave a completely different feeling about workamping, I thought. It was like folks couldn't afford their mortgages, etc, so took to the road to find employment. I haven't been doing this very long, but so far I've yet to meet anyone on the road for that purpose. I thought y'all did a fabulous job, and I loved seeing and hearing the older lady! What a goal for us all. Thanks so much! Mary Lloyd
I watched the segment this morning and it was awesome. It certainly validates my decision to solo and makes me feel great to know I'm not alone out there... Debbie
