Quick Spring '14 Vacation

This winter season I decided to stay near home for a few personal reasons.  I am really looking forward to getting back into the groove of things.

I'm staying in Oshkosh, Wisconsin and picked up a local job at a Best Western Premier hotel in town.  I'll go up to De Pere (in the Green Bay metro area) for a couple of days in early May to visit my mother.  On May 4 I start the long bus ride.  I have transfers in Milwaukee, Chicago, and Memphis.  I have stops of half an hour or longer…

Final countdown to the 2014 summer season........

As I prepare for my season working as an ATV guide in Denali National Park, I am getting my travel arrangements aka airline tickets lined up, getting my packing list for things I will be bringing finalized (2 suitcase maximum), mentally preparing for a summer adventure in Denali, and anxiously waiting for my arrival and first day I can start meeting guests and exploring Denali on ATV's. What are you doing to prepare as your final countdown to your summer of 2014 approaches? Care to share any…

It's starting to seem real

I called Xanterra last week to let them know I'm accepting the Resident Coordinator position at Lake and yesterday I sent the hiring package to them, including my reference letter, via Priority Mail so I'd have the tracking. I need to start thinking about when I'm going to quit my current job. I'd love to leave at the end of March, but mid April may make more financial sense. I still have some bills to pay down before I slash my income in half!

If anyone has any experience working as…

Just a stop along the way.....

Spending a little time in Eminence, Missouri. It is a small town in the Ozarks and it is a peaceful, sleepy little town that gets a lot of tourist traffic in the summer. Luckily for me, it is not summer, lol.

I got everything moved into storage, cleaned up my place to turn in the keys, loaded my trailer, and left the Houston area for a while. A long while, I hope. Went to Shreveport to see two of my kiddos and spend a couple of days there, then headed north to Missouri. Since I'm…

And the winner is...

Hey CoolWorks Fam,

32 applications, five different states, 46 emails, 15 interviews, 12 offers, and one very hard decision to make. When applying for seasonal jobs, especially in the summer, everyone has their first choice of position and location, but if you are anything like me when you get multiple National Park offers, it is extremely hard to decide.

So some things to remember when deciding:

What are the perks? Now of course, being able to live and work in an…
