You could also look at different options. There are a few good paying temp, seasonal jobs that could pay for your camping for the rest of the year, especially if both of you work. I'm talking about things like the sugar beet harvest and Amazon. A couple working 3 months at Amazon for peak season can definitely take the rest of the year off. This option avoids the worst parts of camp hosting.

Well. I did hosting at logger campground in 2014 for CLM and then, no more paid hosting as it's volunteers now. Could be in Tahoe region only tho. Now, speaking of making money that I just read somewhere that it's called, "ticket back to work" that started in 2019. However, I don't know if it affects the benefits as the regular back to work program did. I believe it's for the disability group.

Thanks LostBytes... we are looking into Medicare/Medicaid now, we hit both our initial elegibility periods this year.

UPDATE: We spent lots of time thinking... I realized our skill sets are a perfect match for RV companies with multiple properties needing development managers, multi-park management, design assist, construction management... and we both enjoy working. We found an excellent position paying well enough that we don't need to touch our "nest egg" before we are eligible for full SS, yet flexible enough and much lower stress than the last 40 years... and we get our choice of parks and spaces to live w/full utilities... nice!
