Dude I wish! SO wouldn't be for it, though. :( And the kids have school. Poo. Lol. And we both have really good jobs that won't wait for us. :( Double poo.

What's the pay like, btw? If I'm not too nosy?

I ALMOST joined a carnival back when I first graduated high school, but I chickened out. I regret it now.

So I imagine it'd be a pretty happy thing. Like you always get to meet and talk to new people and see happy little kids. Is it really how I think it is, or am I just being a fluff-butt?

We spend a lot of time outside when we travel. :)



And girl, I can put some fried dough away and always end up losing weight during the season!

Homeschool. Plus a licensed teacher travela and teaches the kids on the show. And who needs regular jobs ;) lol!



Pay very much so varies.



My salary started 6 years ago at $300/wk but if the fair we worked grossed a shitload of money, we get tax-free cash bonuses.



For a great fair, I've made $2500 for 11 days of work.



My husband makes a third of what he grosses.



To a lot of folks, it doesn't sound like a lot of money, but we won't have a mortgage, utility bills, etc

That'd be awesome! Unfortunately, we don't get many, if any, days off during the season.



We work from April until the first week of November, and have the whole winter off

$300 a week is a little less than what SO makes, but it's a good deal more than what I make. Lol.

Is it all sunshine and rainbows working there or how is the environment? I've always been taught carni's are rough people and do a lot of drugs and stuff. But idk if that's even true at all.

Is this the same RV you were talking about with the crayon blue carpet? Or a different one?



Either way, it looks awesome!



I hope you guys have a blast and it's everything you expect it to be.
