1. How Many Hours Is an RV Site Worth?

Multiply the number of hours you are required to work per month times your hourly pay rate. If husband and wife are each required to work one 8 hour day, one day per week, that equals 68 hours of labor per month. 8 hours x 2 people x 4.3 weeks per month = 68 hours. If you are willing to work for the Federal minimum wage of $5.15 an hour, the gross is $350.20 per month. If you value your time at $10.00/hour, then you would be paying gross wages of $680.00/month for the site.

That gives you a starting figure. Then, consider the value of other perks and figure them into the equation. Only you can decide what the exchange package is worth to you.

2. Camping Excitement!

July 21 2006 at 10:14AM

Sydney - A camping holiday was made memorable for an Australian family when a three-metre crocodile tried to get into their tent in the dead of night.

Noel Bleakley told Australia's ABC Radio Friday that the intrusion earlier this week in the Northern Territory's Kakadu National Park had been a shock for the croc as well.

When the family started screaming, "it frightened the poor crocodile nearly to death, and he spun around and headed straight back to the river bank."

The crocodile slammed into a tree before it reached the water.

"He knocked all the bark of the paperbark tree right down to the solid timber underneath, and there were two big wet circles where his nose had slammed into the tree," Bleakey said. - Sapa-dpa
