Can I Work My Regular Job on the Road?

•, Mike Wendland

For those travelers who are already working in a remote position, it might be easy to live and work full time on the road.

If your employer is not particular about where you work, as long as you get the work done, then you have crossed a big hurdle already.

If you think that there could be a problem with working from the road, it is best to ask first. In either case, it might be a good idea to start with a short trial period to see if this lifestyle will be compatible with your regular 9-5.

Doing a quick trip while working on the road is good for two reasons: You can test the waters to see if you live working from the road and you can test your ability to be productive while working on the road.

There is a nice catchphrase that states: "The mountains are calling" and so the distractions of doing the fun stuff during the day are real. It takes some discipline to be able to work while you travel. 

Which Jobs Allow Me to Travel?

Is your job mostly online or by phone?

The list of who could essentially work from home is long.

In our RV Lifestyle Facebook group, the following question pops up frequently: "What are jobs you can do from the road?"

The answers varied. You can see some of the conversations yourself by clicking on these Facebook links: post 1post 2post 3, and post 4.

For some, working stationary in an office building is not necessary, due to the majority of tasks being done over the phone or on the computer.
