RETIREMENT AGAIN? - Last Shift in the Gatehouse

With mixed emotions I am completing my last shift in the gatehouse in Monck Park. Mixed emotions because I really liked the job, the campers, the park but did not get along too well with one staff member.

Tuesday I begin a different stint here in the park. All the staff but one leaves on Monday and Doug and I will be staying on. We are watching Doug's brother David's house up the road while they are in Tuscany and we will relieve the park manager on his days off. We will be here at least until September 16th.

The best news is we are moving to a fully serviced site rather than the just electric and water-across-the lot site we have been on since mid June.

Depending on what work Doug has here or in Vancouver, we will head south sometime after the 1st of October, maybe the 15th of October. Depending......

Well, I would certainly think you and Doug would be great assets for that park to have around! I've looked all over for your little "packets" and thinking we must have seen them in Oregon. We'll look before you get down this way! Take care.

Timing your travels must be irritating. Last spring you went home early so technically you could leave early this fall but if you do you'll have to go home early again next spring. That makes me glad I'm not Canadian. :)
