I'm 22. I'm a junior at Lewis & Clark College in Portland, OR and am studying in Siena, Italy until May. I love the outdoors. I love to travel. I love adventure. It's what life's about...
Last Seasonal Job:
Tour Sales Representative at Kenai Princess Wilderness Lodge in Cooper Landing, Alaska
Where have you lived and worked?
I built a bridge in the Grand Tetons and worked on a trail crew in Ouachita NF with the SCA, I worked at the Grand Canyon, been a boat instructor at Lake Powell, worked several seasons at Crater Lake NP on the boat crew (love it!!!), and worked at a lodge in Cooper Landing, Alaska (beautiful) this last summer.
Any job that allows me to really experience a place.

Good ol' Trish. She had the most wicked sense of humor... Here is my e-mail address if you guys want to contact me: email@example.com Pleas forward to Trish.
I've applied for Crater Lake for 2010 in hopes Jack Coombs will be Boat Manager again.
Last summer I worked at Glacier as a NPS Ranger but didn't really get along with the NPS types - nice housing though. I finally broke down and bought a trailer to live in at Crater lake to avoid the joys of dorm life. At least I'll be able to pick and choose which parties to attend and not have to live next door to one.
We went to New Zealand for a month in OCT-NOV to visit daughter Rebecca; she's will be coming here for 4+ weeks in June to get out of the NZ winter and to see us and a couple friends.
Great to hear from year. ironic! trisha just left my house! she came up to visit me and we were reminiscing about the good ol' days at crater lake! we were wondering about where in the world good ol' captain joe was??? hehe. I would love to work at CL again....but xanterra was unbearable last time i worked there! Updates: Last summer I worked as a landscaper in Fairbanks, AK. and I graduate from Lewis & Clark in May. Yay! Talk to you later. I had to look up TTFN! I like it! Ciao!
Captain Joe here. I worked last summer at Glacier NP in Montana as a Ranger, and will probably return to Crater Lake in 2010 as a boat captain. Jack Coombs will probably be back as well. Don't know about Richard, he worked last year. Darrah is working for the NPS at Grand Teton NP with her boyfriend Ben, also a NPS employee. TTFN
Hey I see that you did a stint with a conservation corps. And would love to ask you some questions about that if you wouldn't mind. I have been thinking about doing one as well. Maybe some time this summer we could talk about that?
Yeeeeaaahh!!! Yay us! I know, I've been over there maybe like 5 years ago. I've never been able to get the place out of my head. Then I met someone at a boutique I work at that works for princess in skagway for 6 mos. After hearing all of her stories I pretty much decided I had to do it. What are you going to be doing at the KPL?
Unfortuantely, we had to cancel the 3/12-16 Vegas trip because Sheila and I both came down with pretty bad colds. We'll try again in April. The Schnaze surgery is elective to correct a deviated septum; it'll normalize my breathing and occurs on the March 24th.
Certainly relay my best to Tess and Jake when you communicate with them. I can still visualize you three taking off on the hotwired golfcart! Is Tess still in Flagstaff? Pleas tell her that I'll be at Lake Powell this summer. What's Jake up to? No doubt you'll see him in Alaska, I assume? I think 2005 was the best summer I had at CLNP!
I assume you heard Capt. Gene died about a year ago from lung cancer? I kinda miss the old grouch. I think it was Gene who kept things together at Crater Lake and thats why it all fell apart last year.
Yeah, I'll be in employee housing. I haven't lived in dorm type facilties in years so it should be interesting/fun!!! I don't have plane tickets yet either, Princess is gonna arrange all of the flight details cause they get good discounts. It looks like you have a lot more seasonal work experience than I and you've been to AK, so do you have any suggestions on what all I should bring with me? Good Luck with the finals!!!
