We did not find an affordable "workamping" position in the southeast. Campgrounds offered sites for a small fee plus 30 or more hours per week. So we took a seasonal job with a cable company in North Carolina. Its been a bit cooler than we hoped but its been great for the pocketbook. We also found a internet-based position that pays very well. It equates to being a beta tester for SOE and URLs.
We shot down to the Mississippi Gulf coast before starting work. We fell in love with Oceans Springs, just outside of Biloxi Mississippi. The town kept it's cottage style after Katrina. The town square has local vendors, craft and art stores. The train station is active and kept up very well. A true small town without the tourist atmosphere.
The small cottages got us thinking about building are own wee-home to build for winter use, than travel during the summer. These are some great sites with good eco-friendly small homes:
