Anyone else here a Digi-Key workamper? Bob's got a new video up talking about it and it's run by the same company that hires for the beet harvest. I signed up for it but haven't got hired just yet. I was wondering if anyone else had any experience with it. RV S.W.A.T. on YouTube likes it.

I've ordered stuff from digi-key over the years, but didn't know they had workampers. I'm not sure that I'd want to go to Thief River Falls if that is where they still are. Still stuck stationary in Oregon.

Only way to be more remote, than Thief River Falls, is to be in Warroad, MN, or Canada.

Warroad and Rosseau (I imagine that Thief River Falls was also in this category) were where the top state hockey players and teams came from. Long winters, with iced over roads, anywhere and everywhere can be a hockey rink.

I may work for Digi-Key soon, but first I'm going to Phoenix to apply with Vista Recreation (RLM-CLM formerly I believe) in person. I'd rather work as a campground host if they have openings on the eastern side of the Sierra mountains.

Yes, Thief River Falls is not on the way to anywhere. I live between Grand Rapids and Hibbing MN and winter is to much for me here. That would be a big no for me...
But it is a beautiful area... I used to Duck hunt up there in the seventies... you’d need some kind of housing as a van would be tough to live in when it’s -20 to -40 below zero. -20 or -25 is worse then the -30 or colder because the wind blows making the -25 feel like -50... where -30 it’s less if any and never any wind when it’s -40. I get chills thinking about it. Haha!
