Pat B. commented on Cool Works tm's group Yellowstone Employees
"All the dorm rooms are basically identical to dorm rooms in most other places - a blank room with two beds and some old furniture. lol I have a pic of a room in Laurel, but not the other dorms. There are pics of the dorms themselves (exterior) if…"

Pat B. commented on Cool Works tm's group Yellowstone Employees
"Janice, you may be assigned to the Laurel Dorm, which is right behind the Inn. It is one of the oldest dorms in the park. Or you might be assigned to one of the newer dorms across the main road in the government area. I believe they'll let you…"

"Janice, do you know which location you'll be working at at OF (The Inn, Lodge, or Snow Lodge)? There are different dorms/housing for each."

Pat B. replied to Alexandra's discussion First timeYNP, placed at Grant Village! in the group Yellowstone Employees
"I agree with Leo. In fact, the vast majority of people at Grant are going to be in your age range. And if you have your own car, you can go anywhere you want and do whatever you want, and will have lots of friends because you DO have a car! lol"

"There is a dorm for the more mature employees, yes. I believe it's the Bighorn Dorm, which is the newer of the four there."

Pat B. replied to Alexandra's discussion First timeYNP, placed at Grant Village! in the group Yellowstone Employees
"Joyce, not sure where you heard that, but it's not true. Security and the bell staff will carry employees from the lodges and restaurants to the dorm at night if there's significant bear activity in the immediate area, but aside from…"

Pat B. replied to Debra's discussion Cell service in Gardiner? in the group Yellowstone Employees
"The tower at Mammoth is owned by Verizon, so only phones using the CDMA technology work well in that area.  T-Mobile uses the same technology AT&T does (GSM, T-Mobile roams on AT&T's network in many places)), so you have a really…"

Pat B. replied to Debra's discussion Cell service in Gardiner? in the group Yellowstone Employees
"Gardiner has pretty decent cellular service for both technologies, so you shouldn't have a problem at all if you're using none of the major carriers."

"Kirk/Bob, the Mammoth disc course is on the hill up above and behind (west) of the hotel and cottages. Once the YCERP office opens in the Rec Hall, they'll have a map of the course and whatnot for you."

Pat B. replied to Erin Campbell's discussion Running at Grant Village in the group Yellowstone Employees
"Hi, Erin. Most of the road system in the park is not built with runners or bicyclists in mind, sadly.  You'll be living in the dorm in an employee housing area along a road that leads back to the marina and an employee RV area. …"

Pat B. replied to Jeff Brokaw's discussion Location, location, location! Which one is right for me??? in the group Yellowstone Employees
"Just a quick note here to say that Grant actually has very good cell phone service, probably the best inside the park.  There are two towers there, one for each technology. Even the 3G service is good on both systems (which comes in handy when…"

Pat B. replied to Jeff Brokaw's discussion Location, location, location! Which one is right for me??? in the group Yellowstone Employees
"Hey, Jeff. I was an RC at Grant this past summer, so I can speak about it a bit.  Grant has a (Xanterra) resident population of about 250 or so, while Lake is on the order of 500 or more.  Grant is slower, relatively speaking, since the…"

Pat B. replied to Joyce's discussion RV Living in Yellowstone in the group Yellowstone Employees
"If you live in your own RV, you are allowed to keep pets, yes, regardless of who you work for.  I'd caution you about cats, though.  If they're anything like cats we've owned in the past, they tend to wander off on their…"

Pat B. replied to Yunior's discussion GSM/3G reception in the park. in the group Yellowstone Employees
"The way things works in the park is kind of confusing.  The tower at OF is CDMA, primarily, but there's something in place that lets GSM roam for basic service. You might get a decent voice signal and texting, but no data transmission at…"

Pat B. commented on Cool Works tm's group Yellowstone Employees
"Eric (and others), the housing is actually not shown in that photo. There are employee dorms and cabins (and the pub!) behind the Lake Lodge, and there's employee dorms and an RV park for employees north of the Lake Hotel. If you look at the…"
