Park Closing for the Winter
Weather Conditions; Cloudy, 95 degrees
We haven’t posted lately because our work here has been kinda boring.
This park isn’t as entertaining as the park we worked last summer.
We recently received news that our park will be closing for the winter in order to make repairs to the park entrance. No gate attendant work for us this winter!
We still have a contracted obligation for next summer. That will be our last season here as gate attendants. We’ve enjoyed the gig but we’re ready to get back on the road!
After some discussion, we decided to sign up as volunteers for the winter. We’ll just stay here at our present location and be park security while the park is closed and do whatever it is they need us to do.
We’re planning on a few short trips this winter but we’ll drive the truck and stay in a hotel.
We have learned a few things about ourselves while being gate attendants this past year. One being, we’ve really missed the gypsy lifestyle. We miss exploring. We are from this area and so there’s NOT much exploring here to do.
The fact that the lake levels are so low makes the camping business here kinda of slow. The heat doesn’t help either.
Anyway, we have filled out the paperwork to become park volunteers and have passed the background checks. We should be in business as soon as our summer season contract is done.
