Today’s update is going to be quick because time is getting harder and harder to come by now that peak season has hit. I survived Cyber Monday yesterday, and today is day four of a six day in a row stint. The work forecast is calling for overtime up until the end of season, we’re [...]
Every now and then I write a little about mindfulness and living in the moment and seeing the joy in where you are right now. These messages are always slipped into other posts, they have never stood alone because I’ve found it really hard to communicate exactly what I mean when I talk about these [...]
Friday Shortly before 9 pm, the TV stops working. I think it must be snow accumulation on the dish. When the last blog post went up at 5:30 precipitation had just turned to snow and it was pretty light, it got much heavier after sundown. The lights flicker for a third time as I sit [...]
Last Wednesday was a moving day. I’m not sure how it works for other RVers, but for me, I never get anything productive done on a moving day except moving. It seems odd that the act of hitching and unhitching, which only spans about 45 minutes typically each way, can fill a full 12 hours [...]
Morning dawned bright and clear after the amazing lightning storm of the night before. I’d made plans with a coworker to go into Rapid City today, so the nice weather was a welcome relief. With a 8 am departure time on a Monday, traffic remains light along I90 heading west through the prairie. I’ve never [...]
Recently I received an e-mail from a want-to-be full-timer who wasn’t too far off from retirement age, but wished they could hit the road early. They said money one was one of the factors that kept them from going now, because “you can never have enough”. Allow me to point out that you can, in [...]
I’ve been noticing an interesting phenomenon here at Cedar Pass. As the season is winding down, students who were just here working during break are heading back to college, foreign workers who were here on visas will soon be returning home as their visa expiration draws near. Between this week and next week, we’re losing [...]
I get to hear a lot about people’s travel plans while working at the Lodge. Travelers visiting from all over the country, and even several from overseas. Some have RVs like me and are on vacation or retired. Some are road tripping in a vehicle and get nightly accommodations. While I’m waiting for their credit [...]
This is part 2 of a series. If you haven’t already, please read How To Avoid Loneliness as a Solo Full-time RVer (Pt. 1) first. Whether you fall more towards introvert or extrovert, whether you prefer deeper or more superficial conversation, there are two big areas to focus on when it comes to interaction with [...]
It’s now been three weeks since I started working for Forever Resorts, the concession company that currently holds the contract for Cedar Pass Lodge (CPL). Last fall when I was working at Amazon I did a little review a few weeks into the season to give first impressions about what it was like, and now [...]
