This is similar to what I did when I went to WA. An internet friend decided I would make a great camp counselor, and I figured that would help me out of my rut so a couple months later I went up, not knowing if I would stay or not. My dad said he was regarding it as my moving out, basically.
Long story short, I finally decided by the end of the summer I would stay in WA because I had fallen in love with it and I bought a car from the cook's assistant with most of my earnings. I was going to live in it until I got a job and enough money to get a place. Unfortunately it broke down and I ended up leaving it on the side of the road. I thought about camping out in the woods until I had more options, but the camp director let me stay in return for washing dishes. Finally he forced me to leave, and I lived with the family of another internet friend in Seattle for a couple more months before finally just returning home. haha.
I'm moving back to Seattle this fall with a better plan this time. And actually letting people know my plans beforehand. I got a few people upset last time because they didn't know I was thinking about staying. hah
