Our life when not RVing | Part-time Job for the between travel times

One of the things about being home we’ve had to consider is how our eldests (we have twins) could earn money to fund their many interests.  I think we’ve come upon something that fits our need to hit the road and has the flexibility to say “no” when it doesn’t fit our family plans. What is it you ask?  Working as a background extra on a movie set.

moviemaking

My older three were recently booked for a movie as background extras and it has been a great fit for our family. Since we homeschool, we can work our studies around when the boys have to work and the work environment when the boys are on location is such that while they are waiting to be in a shot in the holding area, they can work on an assignment.

Atlanta is becoming the second Hollywood some say — filming popular motion pictures like the Hunger Games and the TV show, the Walking Dead. If you want to get started in working as a background extra, you’ll want three professional photos of yourself in various outfits. You’ll also need to know your measurements like height and weight. These details need to be included on the photo along with the color of your hair and eyes — and finally your age.  The casting company will send out certain criteria they are looking for — usually with an age range. If you fit the age range, you’ll want to submit your photo via email and the details that are listed in the casting call. Then you wait. And wait. And maybe you’ll be chosen or maybe not.  I met one father of a 15 year old that said his son had been in four movies as a background and submitted for about 20 casting calls — so don’t expect to get in each time.  And as for our experience, they chose people from all looks and ethnicities, so you never know what the casting company will go for when they are looking for background extras for their movie.

Be prepared for a long work day as a background extra. You’ll need to plan on additional time getting to and from the job site. In addition, you need to expect to work a long day.  Law dictates that anyone who is under 18 is limited to a 10-hour work day, so the kids get paid their hourly rate for the first 8 hours and then overtime is at a designated slightly higher rate.  They expect you to be there no later than 15 minutes prior to your call time (your call time is when you clock in essentially.)  So, a 10-hour work day is really an 11-hr plus commute time there and back for us. When we were called to work as a background extra, the casting company called and discussed what days we would be working. The start time usually varies and you won’t know your call time until the day before. In our case, this movie has the boys booked for 10 days that vary over the course of several months.

Be prepared to furnish your own wardrobe as a background extra. Depending on the needs of the film, the casting company may ask you to bring several outfits. You are to arrive ready to go in the outfit that you like best, but be prepared that Wardrobe may change you into something else. They will also have some clothes as an option depending on your fitting size.  I do have to say that this is the more difficult part of this job for me as I scramble the day before their booking (because they don’t tell you until the day before what you’ll need to bring) to pull together enough wardrobe for three people to bring to set.

If you are interested in looking into this as a possible source of income, you can do a local search for casting agencies in your area. Not only L.A. films, but also in Chicago, New York, Atlanta, and elsewhere around the nation depending on the movie being shot’s needs.  You can also go onto Facebook and “Like” these casting companies and select the default to show alerts in the top of your feed. (Heads up: I don’t understand Facebook’s algorithm because I’ve done this step, but it still doesn’t post alerts in my feed, so I have to go to the page to check on updates.) Just be forewarned that you want to make sure it’s a legit casting company. Some have posed as a casting company and requested information including social security numbers. Be careful when submitting that you are working with a reputable casting company.

You have to be able to keep a secret. You are often asked to sign a Non-Disclosure Agreement promising that you will not share details about the film or share on social media sites film details.  You are not even allowed to take photos on set.

If you’re looking to pick up a part time job that gives you flexibility to travel, this is one option that you may want to consider.


*Due to a non-disclosure release form the kids signed, we can’t go into details regarding what the movie is, where it is being shot, or specifics about the movie until after it has released in the box office.

So you don’t think you have enough money to travel…

Quote by Graham Cooke
Our boys exploring the gentle giants — Redwood trees in Northern California — something that has long been a dream of ours to experience.

When you have a dream and chase it, you say no to the things that you might want now in order to experience what you want later.

When everyone is at a movie opening night, you wait to watch that movie until Apple has a digital rental for $4.99.

When others are eating out, you’re eating at home and fixing dinner even though you’re tired and don’t feel like it.

When others get a fancy latte concoction at the local coffee bar, you’re brewing a pot at home.

When others go out for ice cream at the ice cream shop, you go to the grocery store and buy what’s on sale and have a sundae party at home.

When others are upgrading their phone to the latest technology release, you say to yourself, “My phone is just fine – thankful it works” and avoid the Best Buy or the Apple Store.

When others are getting a new car (or new used car), you take care of the one you have and remain thankful she still carries you where you need to go and throw some duct tape on that seat that’s starting to tear from use.

When others go to the nail salon to get a mani-pedi, you pull out your nail clippers and nail polish and give yourself your own mani-pedi.

You clip coupons and look for deals when you have the time to do so.

You don’t run into town whenever you need something, but instead make purposeful trips and stock-up.

You cancel that outrageous Cable/Satilite contract, buy an Apple TV and Netflix membership and your annual cost goes from $1,800 (estimating an average bill of about $150 a month) down to roughly $200 only annually.

Delayed gratification. It’s tough. It’s no fun. It’s doesn’t earn you popularity points on Facebook. But that’s OK, ’cause you’re on a mission to make a dream into a reality.

But when you say “no” to the things that bring pleasure now so you can say “yes” to experiencing something you’ve always wanted, well — there are no words to describe how that moment feels when you reach that goal. Simply amazing.

Want to travel, but you don’t think you can afford it? It’s like Mr Cooke says, “… you must be prepared to do things you’ve never done before.”

Now go chase that dream!

Dream Big! You can do it!

Memphis, TN | Bass Pro Shop at the Pyramid – Part 2

Memphis Tennessee

As the rain began to fall, we moved on from the National Ornamental Metal Museum and started heading towards the freeway when we saw this curious building and the logo had our boys’ looking for the entrance in no time as their father led the way.

Rainy day on the way to Bass Pro Shop at the Pyramid

As it turned out, Bass Pro Shop had just opened their doors in this location and is one of the largest retail stores in the world. It was a flurry of activity and my Mama-Safety-Senses were on high alert as we rolled into the crowded parking lot towing a 34′ travel trailer. Thankfully, we didn’t hit any other cars and managed to find a spot long enough for our set up along the side of the parking lot near the retaining wall.

As a family with four boys, we were in for a treat.  Walking thru the doors, we entered a Cypress Swamp Waterfowl Habitat complete with towering cypress trees, and an 84,000-gallon alligator habitat, live ducks, and floating boats that you can board and experience on the water (well, experience them floating anyway).

Evidently, the pyramid structure was built in 1991 and was originally owned and operated jointly by the city of Memphis and Shelby County until Shelby County sold its share to Memphis in April 2009.[6] The pyramid design plays on the city’s namesake in Egypt, known for its ancient pyramids. It is 321 feet (98m, about 32 stories) tall and has base sides of 591 ft.  It is by some measures the tenth tallest pyramid in the world.

Bass Pro Shop at the Pyramid in Memphis TN

This location also touts The Ducks Unlimited Waterfowling Heritage Center, an interactive wetlands education museum, a 28-story free-standing elevator with views at the top on their glass observation deck all for a nominal fee, there’s also a restaurant you can go to that overlooks the Mississippi river, an archery range, and in addition to two large levels of shopping, they also have the Big Cypress Lodge, the first hotel inside a Bass Pro Shops, with 103 rustic rooms and tree-house cabins inspired by vintage duck hunting camps.

And no, if you’re wondering if Bass Pro Shop is paying me to tell you how awesome this location is, well, they’re not. It’s really that magnificent. Truly they’ve outdone themselves and no other Bass Pro Shop will ever feel quite as cool to my boys now. (sad sigh)

We did some shopping for boots for one of our boys and grabbed some snacks from the general store which touts long lines and an amazing fudge assortment. The boys also had fun shooting in the Bass Pro’s shooting arcade and my husband and I somehow managed to keep our five-year-old from falling into the water that had easy access at various points in the retail location.  My husband, who loves to barbecue, enjoyed their great selection of barbecuers and smokers.

Overall, it was a little hairy getting into the parking lot with our travel trailer and construction still going on, but in all, it worked out and we were able to find a spot to park.  (You should note that this location does not allow overnight parking as some Bass Pro Shops usually do. We easily spent a couple of hours here.) Although I normally lean towards educational museums or national landmarks, there’s something to be said about taking advantage of local attractions or business offerings that fit the interest of your family.

Details-Costs

WHAT KIDS CAN LEARN THRU THIS EXPERIENCE:

  • There are a variety of fish in the large tanks — some kids would not normally be able to view due to locale and muddy waters.
  • Target practice with the shooting arcade.

It took us about an hour-and-a-half to go thru the museum buildings and walk around the grounds. Here are the details for planning your budget and outing…

Things to do:
– 28-story free-standing elevator
– two restaurants if you wish to dine there
– a spot to bowl

5 Kids and a RV: “Let’s go learn something today!

101 Days and 15,000+ miles

It’s been two weeks since we’ve returned home after being on the road for 101 days.

I remember the day we returned home… as I walked into my home, it felt like I was touring a home for sale. There were no smells of living life… dinner on the stove, or a sweet cake baking in the oven, sweaty boys or their stinky shoes, vanilla candles burning to freshen the air… nope. None of it. It was this surreal experience that you just have to probably experience to truly get. There was a part of me that knew it was our home and another part that felt I had stepped into a page from my past.

As I went to turn the water back on in my kitchen, I noticed my large sink. As I went to put things away in the kitchen, I noticed all my counter space. The kids were running inside and out the door, excited to reclaim our space. I noticed how clean everything looked. Unlived in. A home is a home because of who I share it with… and I was reminded in that moment that magazine-worthy-pristine-condition homes may be pretty to look at on the page, but they are empty of what’s really important — my people. And my people were busy running in and out the back and front door to reclaim their space.  My littlest turns to me and asks if we will be camping here for awhile. I chuckle — “Yes baby. We’re home now.”

“Every traveler has a home of his own and he learns to appreciate it the more from his wandering.”

            — Charles Dickens

Coming home to my clean house (except for the dust and a few spider webs), I realized how my perspective had changed after living in our travel trailer for 101 days and traveling over 15,000 miles across country. My home hadn’t changed. I had changed. And it was a good change. My home that I had complained wasn’t big enough to hold my growing family, suddenly didn’t feel so little anymore. I realized that it was a matter of perspective. My heart felt THANKFUL for my beautiful quartz countertops and the spaciousness they offered to cook a family meal. My heart felt THANKFUL for my large bathtub to bathe my children. My heart felt THANKFUL for my laundry room and “maids” in waiting.

Do I long for a larger home. Sure. But I know I can live in a small one and keep up on the chaos in those 34 feet better than my 2,200 square foot home. I know I’d rather live small in order to live large.

“I know I’d rather live small in order to live large.” — Me

Oh, and our kids? Check out what my middle son left on the fridge for my hubby and I that just melted my heart…

Note from Peyt'

I am forever changed by our cross country trip. So, hang with me. See what’s possible when you decide to chase a dream.

A lil’ bit of shopping to beat the Spring Break blues

Well, I have to admit, I’m beginning to feel jealous. It’s spring break in our neck of the woods and it seems like EVERYONE we know has headed to the beach. But we live in “Opposite Land” as we call it. That simply means that we do opposite typically of the population at large — think of a little minnow swimming up stream — yeah, that’s us. Figuratively speaking of course. When it’s Saturday and everyone is shopping, we’re home. When everyone is working and at school, we’re out running errands. When people are taking summer break, we are doing school because we have to be inside anyway during the intense Atlanta heat and we take our “summer break” in October when it’s gorgeous out and 75. You get the drift.  Aaaaanyway… I thought I might hunt down a little somethin’-somethin’ to see if that might wet (pun intended) my appetite for the sandy beach and cool surf since I can’t be where my friends are right now.

Am I seeing this right? A pack of four pillows for only $13?! I wish the interior of my RV had blue because these are not only lovely, but a great deal… (click on image for source)

Screen Shot 2015-04-09 at 1.23.34 AM


OK, I’m loving this sea shell lumbar pillow… One of my favorite things to this day is to put the shell up to my ear and listen for the “waves”.  This one would be perfect “The Ocean is calling and I must go…” Yes please! (click on image for source)

Screen Shot 2015-04-09 at 1.35.25 AM


OK, this little primitive sign for $11 shipped is darlin’ too…
(click on image for source)


We’ve been wanting to get some new mugs that are lighter weight for the RV… maybe this one from ModCloth might work for $13 ea. (click on image for source) Hmmmm… I love the “adventurer” part, but the anchor seems to want to hold me in place. Wait. Now I’m confused.

Screen Shot 2015-04-09 at 1.48.08 AM

 


Maybe I need a Paris Cafe Cardigan in Noir.. I love how the scallop looks like little waves. This could be a fun option for spring… I can totally see this with a cute gold and creme striped tank underneath and navy linen cropped pants. OK, this is going on the wish list, too. (click on image for source)

Screen Shot 2015-04-09 at 1.59.11 AM


Or maybe I should get a new make-up bag to use on the next trip. This one by ModClothe is cute, cute, cute!

Screen Shot 2015-04-09 at 2.03.35 AM

And that’s a good note to stop on… “Make Every Day an Adventure”. Well, if I’m going to make tomorrow an adventure, I best get to bed. With five children, every day has something to offer and this Mama needs to get some rest!  Even if life seems ordinary, look for the extraordinary — there’s always something to be thankful for…

Enjoying life with my family is the best adventure of all.

Be blessed!  ~ Erin

Cartersville GA | Etowah Indian Mounds – Part 2

FB-Cartersville-Etowah-Indian-Mounds

If you’re traveling out west of Atlanta, don’t miss this great learning opportunity for your kiddos! This location is close to Red Top Mountain RV campsites within a 10-minute drive (6 miles) and Lake Allatoona campgrounds. You can make a day of it and cover the Booth Museum and the Etowah Indian Mounds. This is part two in a series…

The Etowah Indian Mounds:

IMG_5775R_LR

The Etowah Mounds provide a great way to enjoy the outdoors with your family!  Plus, it’s only a 10-minute drive from the Booth Western Art Museum so you can do both if you are able to be on your feet for most the day.

IMG_5722R_LR

They have a small museum space (very small actually) which only takes about 15-20 minutes tops to walk thru. It’s really geared toward older kids on up to adults. If you have littles, you’ll probably cruise thru this section.  There is supposed a film you can watch, but when we checked in, the man at the front desk didn’t mention it and there was a school group in that area so that might be why he didn’t say anything about it. Either way, we missed out on the film, so if you view the film, feel free to comment below and fill us all in on how it went. To prepare for more discussion, I recommend reading up on it a bit before hand:

This region was home to an estimated several thousand Native Americans from 1000 A.D. to 1550 A.D., this 54-acre site protects six earthen mounds, a plaza, village site, borrow pits and defensive ditch. Etowah Mounds is the most intact Mississippian Culture site in the Southeast.

We went in the first part of April when the trees were starting to awaken and some even in full bloom. It’s best to climb the Etowah mounds when temps are moderate (60-78 degrees) as you will certainly break a sweat climbing the steps! I would not visit the months of June-September due to dangers of heat exhaustion unless you’re going early in the morning — especially with littles. I would not attempt this as a field trip in the summer personally. My kiddos tuckered out and water is a must. But the view is so worth it!

Caution! The hills are steeper than you think! There are no safety rails, so good common sense is necessary to keep littles from tumbling down a very steep mound. This photo was taken at the top of the largest mound.


They also have a re-constructed Wattle & Daub House that you can view up close. You can see how it was constructed here. We visited before the sides were put up I think because this is how it looked when we were there… (did the Etowah’s have chicken wire back then?) ;D

WHAT KIDS CAN LEARN THRU THIS EXPERIENCE:

  • Native American History (specifically Mississippian Culture)  thru experience and museum artifacts

It took us about an hour-and-a-half to go thru both the museum and walk out to the mounds. We only climbed the large mound because we had a 1 year old on my back and a rambunctious 4-year-old explorer, so if you want to climb the other two mounds, budget additional time. Here are the details for planning your budget and outing…

Cost:
– Adults $6.00
– Seniors (62+) $5.00
– Youth (6-17) $4.00
– Youth Groups (6-17) $3.50

TIP: Don’t forget your water bottles and a snack! Though the mounds look small from the road, they are a good climb to the top! And bring a little bit of spending money as they also have a small gift shop where the kids can leave with a special item to remember their outing by.


Hours:
Tuesday–Saturday / 9AM–5PM
*Closed Mondays, Sundays, New Year’s Day, Thanksgiving and Christmas. For a more enjoyable visit, plan to spend 1–2 hours.

5 Kids and a RV: “Let’s go learn something today!

Cartersville GA | Cowboys, Indians & Western Art – Part 1

FB-Booth-Museum

If you’re traveling out west of Atlanta, don’t miss this great learning opportunity for your kiddos! This location is close to Red Top Mountain RV campsites within a 10-minute drive (6 miles) and Lake Allatoona campgrounds. You can make a day of it and cover the Booth Museum and the Etowah Indian Mounds.

The Booth Museum:

Using the saddlebagIMG_5876

When I first heard that Cartersville, Georgia had a Western Art Museum, admittedly I sort of scoffed at the thought that cowboys and Native Americans could have artistic value. In my head, I had the stereotypical image of John Wayne or the Lone Ranger with his side-kick, Tonto and thought the entire museum would be the two sides at odds with each other. I also thought it would be a small collection. Boy, was I wrong on all accounts!

The Booth Museum is the only museum of its kind in the Southeast and is the second largest art museum in the state of Georgia (The HIGH in Atlanta is reportedly the largest).  The Booth also houses the largest permanent exhibition space for Western American art in the country! The exhibits cover two levels and there are so many pieces of artwork, sculptures and artifacts that relate to Native Americans and America Cowboys that I lost count along the way. It also covers the Civil War era and has a Presidents exhibit as well as a children’s activity area on the lower level. There are eight galleries that are continually on display.

Paper Sculpture at the Booth Western Art Museum

IMG_5825

We like to visit on the first Thursday of each month because we can all get in free (now that I have twins that are teens that helps me a lot on the pocket book.)  It typically takes us 2-3 hours to go thru the exhibits and the kids love finishing downstairs on the lower level at Sagebrush Ranch where they have interactive activities that include riding in a pretend stagecoach, saddling up on a pretend horse, playing dress up, or doing one of several learning games or puzzles.

Elevator run by weight system

And while you are there, you can share with your kids a quick physics lesson on how pulleys work to help lift heavy objects because The Booth has a beautiful glass elevator (pictured above) with real weights that lift and lower the elevator with ease and ever so quiet – one of only two of it’s kind in the country!


TIP:  When you check in at the information desk, be sure to ask about getting a Saddlebag (shown above in pic) for your kiddos during your visit to the Museum. The Saddlebag is filled with learning-related activities to be done throughout the Museum to help get your child actively engaged with the art. When selecting a Saddlebag, children have the option of three themes: “Cowboy”, “Native American”, or “Presidents”. Saddlebags are FREE and can be checked out from the information desk on the main floor of the Museum.
