As full-time travelers for five years and remote workers for longer, we’ve used a variety of resources to do our work and live our life, and as a result, we come across items that we are happy to recommend to others. (We will also recommend our own work!) If these sound like they’d be great resources for you as well, please start here to purchase them. It’s a small but meaningful way for you to support our work through the affiliate link. Thanks for helping to support our adventures!
Play the Ukulele!
The first in our online music course series, Play the Ukulele! is an entirely comprehensive course broken up into eight chapters. It can be completed in a couple of months, or shorter or slower as you get to set your own pace. Your purchase includes access to 3 Q & As with Ross, a private Facebook community and tons of free sheet music, videos and a songwriting workshop in addition to the course.
The Greater Knead
Meet the best bagels around! Seriously. If you love great bagels, if you associate New York City with bagels, you’ll need to head over to The Greater Knead and order yourself a taste of amazing! They come in packs of four, and you can get 3, 6, or 9 packages at a time. You can choose a different flavor for each four-pack, and they vary from classics like everything and sesame seed to chocolate swirl and french toast (my absolute favorite). Best of all – these babies are gluten-free!!!! So they’re perfect to order for your family members with dietary challenges – but I recommend ordering some for yourself. So good!!! Use our code jamief24 for a discount with your purchase.
Ross and I have used/are using the online therapy service BetterHelp, and we think you’d benefit from it too! It’s a much more affordable route to therapy for those without insurance coverage or with a high deductible, and you get unlimited support via messages in addition to your weekly sessions. Get 1 free week if you sign up using this link. (We’ll get a free week too, so it’s a lovely way to support all of our mental health!)
Did you know that you can support us while you do your regular shopping? We are Amazon Affiliates, which means if you begin your Amazon shopping with one of our links, as long as you complete the purchase in the next 24 hours we’ll get a percentage back to us. It’s no additional cost to you, and you don’t need to purchase what we link you to. Just Start Here, make some purchases and we’ll get some extra in the bank. Thank you!
This is organic produce from local farms that isn’t pretty enough for prime time aka your supermarket won’t sell it. But in our experience, it’s barely blemished, plus you save 40% off what you’d pay for organic produce and it’s about as environmentally friendly as it gets! You can save 25% off your first order with this link.
Deadbolt Mystery Society
This is one of the BEST ways to spend an evening in! Mystery boxes are like a combination of solving a mystery and an escape room. Deadbolt is one of the most affordable services out there (which is why we tried them initially), but turns out they’re also one of the best! Each box contains clues and puzzles and all you need (besides an internet connection for a few puzzles) to solve the whodunit. It’s TONS of fun, takes 2-3 hours, has hints if you get stumped and is fun and pretty gorgeously packaged too. And one of my favorite things is that you can pass the box on to someone else to solve when you’re done! Save money on your first order and try it out here – you can try a one-time box or two, like we did to start, or you can do the monthly subscription, which we now do. It’s recommended for 1-4 players but it’s definitely doable for a larger family, and it isn’t so grisly that older children can’t enjoy it too.
Harvest Hosts is a super fun membership program. Instead of staying at campgrounds all of the time, why not mix it up and “boondock” in the parking lot of a winery or other attraction? The views are typically stellar, and with your membership, you can stay for free, only compensating your host with a purchase on site, like a winery tour, a bottle of wine or touring the museum on site. Harvest Hosts has a network of wineries and other interesting attractions across the United States and a growing number of locations in Canada, and we think it’s an amazing and fun way to support small businesses while you travel. Learn more here and you’ll be dropping a few coins (some dollars, actually!) in our hat when you sign up. Even better, use your link and you’ll save 15% on your purchase!
Dosh is a great app that we use on our iPhones to get money back when we make purchases we’d make anyway! All you need to do is connect your credit or debit card, and it tracks relevant purchases and you get cash back. Kind of awesome. If you sign up and add a credit or debit card you’ll get $5 for yourself and a bonus for us when you use our link.
We all know we should be using an electric toothbrush, but if you’re like me, you got out of the habit (or never got into it) and just haven’t gotten around to it. Starting the habit is easy and ridiculously convenient with Quip. They’ll send you a toothbrush with a battery good for three months, and they’ll set you up for automatic refills (new brush head and battery) sent to you every three months for only $5. Plus, your first refill is free with this offer! It’s got a really handy travel case perfect for RVers or frequent flyers too. Check out Quip and save today!
Workamper.com is the number one way we find workamping jobs (mostly at campgrounds, but not always) as we travel. With a paid membership, you can create a resume for yourself (and your partner, if relevant) and potential employers can find you there! We’ve gotten three great positions and MANY additional, great offers just from having our resume posted there. And we’ve used their postings and database to look up other campgrounds to contact ourselves and set up work. If you’re interested, learn more here, and if you sign up, please reference us, member #212801, so that we’ll get an extension on our membership!
Passport America is by far the most popular of the campground membership programs, and it’s easy to see why. With Passport America, you can pay half price at thousands of campgrounds across the country! As with anything, there are restrictions and exceptions that vary by campground. But using this program, we were able to limit our campground costs driving from Florida to Colorado, paying half price every night so that our rates didn’t exceed $22. It was really great! They have an extensive network and you can always read campground reviews first to make sure you know what you’re getting. We actually found some of our favorite campgrounds using Passport America! Please read more here and when you sign up, be sure to mention us, Jamie Feinberg member # C-724347, so that we can receive a little bonus to pad our bank accounts. Thank you so much, and enjoy your membership! We certainly do.
These are AMAZING protein bars covered in chocolate. No gluten ingredients, lower sugar and calories and it’s basically like eating a three musketeers bar. I’ve never gone nuts for a protein bar before, but these really sold me. Save $10 on your first order (and give us some money off our next order) with this link.
Wonder how we make money while we travel? One of the ways is that Jamie supported our life on the road for many years was as a virtual assistant. She’s gotten amazing tips from Melissa Smith, and you can too by taking her class! Melissa has literally written the book on being a virtual assistant: in fact, she’s published multiple books, led the first virtual assistant conference and acts as a matchmaker, connecting businesses with virtual assistants around the country and across the world. Learn more and sign up for her course here! If you sign up, I’ll get a small payment from Melissa for connecting you.
