Our official first week of work, and I must say, it was a bit more than I had expected. A lot of training, then bam! On work dutie at the end of the week! It's ok though, we were ready to begin doing the work we had dreamed of.
Being the Host on Duty (HOD) means we are on call from 8am-10pm. We take counts in the morning, answer questions as needed, get the mail, and just drive through the campground and day use areas a few times during the day to make sure everything is going well. Today we also chose to do a little more work that needed to get done before next weekend! Mark offered to detail their van, so before long he had a list 6-days long! I checked all the bathrooms (someone else cleans them), then I flipped the small reservations signs, checked in the dining hall reservation, and cleaned up the day use area that had sand & chalk all over. Fun fun.. So besides having problems with the radio, we had a good first HOD day, and confident enough that we can do this job.
The days we're not HOD, we make occasional runs when needed to take of our designated area, which is one day use area (40 acre lake), and the overflow campsites. We also pick up garbage whenever we see it, and talk with visitors. That part is a blast!!
So here are some pics from week 1. I just can't get over these trees! Oh yes... and a new camera is on order, so expect some awesome shots coming soon! (I hope).. :-)
