I'm 63 and my husband is 66. He had always planned to work until he was70, but got laid off 2 years ago and has been unable to find ANY kind of job. He has worked as a business process consultant for his entire career. We'd like to slow down a little and have less stress.
Hi Ginny, I am finally feeling comfortable driving the shuttle buses, answering the questions, etc. so now I can enjoy my time there, I was studying and a nervous wreck most of the time, up to that point. Have a great day! Cathy
I loved your rafting story, Ginny. I actually came down "remote" Alt US 93 and US 6, really isolated out there, but lovely, and staying in a former little mining town called Tonapah, Nev. I liked it so much I got a room while still daylight, and will check out the town. Yosemite tomorrow!
Hi Ginny, Thanks for the enthusiastic feedback! I am sorry for the info about your ailing mother. I have a super mother back in Ohio, and she and dad are hard to leave-and they are watching my cat. The drive out here has been very nice. I really like the Park City, Salt Lake City area (that's were I am today. Just trying to decide which way to head for my final "ascent" into Yosemite! I 15 or I 80? Excited about Yosemite, but a little apprehensive. I loved Glacier, and it was pretty laid back, and we didn't have crowds flocking to ride the red buses. Cathy
Hi Ginny, I forgot to write you a message when I sent you a "friendd" request. I am heading to Yosemite to finish up the season as a shuttle driver. My school district reduced our hours, and I decided that this was my chance (excuse) to get out there and work in and enjoy the National Parks again. I worked at Glacier National Park in 2006, and since then, I have gotten on coolworks every chance that I get and "drool" over all the wonderful job opportunities. Hope to hear from you. Cathy
Hi again Ginny! Our new Vacation Rental is in Pagosa Springs, so it is a bit west and south of Boulder. It is a perfect area being close to Mesa Verde NP, the Durango-Silverton Steam Train, and, of course, great skiing at Wolf Creek! It is great to just sit and soak in the Hot Springs (I think that's my favorite activity actually). We are excited to spend more time in Colorado in the coming months. And, yes, the Hershey job is fulfilling a "Willie Wonka" fantasy of mine .... I actually love giving chocolate away more than selling it (much to the dismay of my managers!) If you have any seasonal work questions, lay 'em on me as I spent an entire summer working Yellowstone.
I'm sure. I was back there for a few days in 1986 and couldn't find my way around. Much bigger.
We are leaving shortly to spend the week "down the shore" in Ocean City, NJ. Both daughters, both sons-in-law, six grandkids, a family friend and us. 13 in the same house for an entire week! OK if we can go to the beach and the boardwalk but if it rains.....
I checked the Supply Corps School yearbook but did not find a Gosling. He could have been at the school for a reason other than being a student, or may have graduated before or after our class and so was not in our yearbook.
What type of seasonal job and what location are you and your husband looking for?
Hi Ginny! Welcome to Coolworks! I can relate to your husbands situation ... I was laid off in Feb, 2009 after 34 years with the same outfit. It is very difficult to find a job at age 61 :-) I work for Hersheys right now merchandising candy bars (it's really kinda fun). Hope to eventually work in Alaska ... just not sure when.
We were in Athens attending the Navy Supply Corps School back in 1965. Lived in a trailer park somewhere near the school. Even went to a couple of UGA football games back when Vince Dooley was the coach. My wife and I grew up in Stillwater, Oklahoma where Oklahoma State U. is located.
We are just getting into this seasonal employment thing. Have not actually had a seasonal job yet but hope to in 2011.
