It's Official, We're Gate Attendants

Princeton, Texas
Clear Lake Park
Weather Condition; High 78 Low 60, Cloudy

Today was a nonstop busy day for us. We woke and hit the floor running.

First of all, we had to get the truck inspected. The nearest town is twelve miles. That would be a small town. The nearest major city is almost twenty miles away. Needless to say, we have to drive a distance to get anything we might need.

This morning we drove to the nearest major city and got the truck inspected. We stopped at the grocery store then stopped to grab a bite of lunch. Back to the fiver we went.

At home we unloaded the groceries and changed clothes and back into the truck again. We had to be at the lake headquarters office by 1 P.M.

We had our pre-work conference from 1 to 4. We were told the rules, explained the paperwork and issued our keys and uniforms. It’s official, we are now gate attendants. We start work at 6 A.M Monday morning.

We left the pre-work conference and stopped by the Wal-Mart for a few office supplies. Stopped for a quick dinner and returned back home after 7 P.M.

We are two very tired gals.

  1. Wow..a 6AM work day is what I use to do at the beauty shop I owned...Yep, some ladies actually wanted that early appointment time...Glad it's you and not me..been there, done that..Good Luck on your new jobs!

  2. Somehow when you mentioned your new home for the summer I missed the part about Workamping at Clear Lake Park. Looks like a grand place for an extended stay.

    We're still trying to get this house of ours sold, so for the time we're part-timers, but maybe after a year or two of wandering we might try the workkamping experience. (though I'm not sure if I like people enough to do what you are)

    cheers, and keep up the good work.
