Yes, it's slow here too. I guess we are hoping for the 4th of July. ;) North Rim, I'm sure I wont be back just because it's so far from everything. But you never know. Now, the South Rim they seem to be pretty busy every time I talk to people coming from there. It's just so warm, and the only thing really to do is hike. lol
So, hows the season going there at Canyon this year?
I'm I missing anything?
Grand Canyon North Rim is busy. I'm a server working Breakfast and lunch.It's not bad, not making the money you said you are making at Canyon YNP. But, I'm making the best of what I got.
Look forward to seeing buses roll up for some easy money.
Hope to come back for the summer season next year. If I can't serve at Canyon, or lower Old Faithful with DNC, then I will try for Lake or Old Faithful, maybe even Canyon with Xanterra.
Sarah is flying out to the North Rim next month and looking forward to seeing her.
The Wi-Fi is spotty here at times, so, if I don't answer don't worry I will.
Great news, thanks! I'll just bring a little rug with me since the place is carpeted--and new washers and dryers!! I actually like snow, but it will no doubt be history by mid-June when I arrive. Snow on the ground keeps the ice cream orders low, eh? Little concerned about the altitude adjustment issue--stay hydrated, right? Aw, it'll all work out...dang, I'm ridiculously excited!
Hey Jackie--Got the menu....JUST got the menu--they were a tad sloooow about alerting me to its arrival. Thanks so much! I'll work on learning the codes so I can hit the floor running. Curious to know how business is; I sometimes worry it will be down with so many suffering economic woes...
Thanks Jackie! I saw that you begin on Monday. Glad you made it OK. How is it there? Lots of snow? It looks like it will warm up by Wednesday. I'll look for the fax--be sure to put #212 on it so they don't deliver it elsewhere by mistake LOL! We don't want to confuse some other poor old lady....
Hey Jackie! I got the paperwork this week and signed by 2/17. I'm beside myself with joy! Thinking about June and all the changes that will bring for me. I've read your emails several times--for the info you provided and for the smile I always feel from my toes to my nose.
Thanks for all the awesome info about Death Valley! I figured there would be a lot of drinking and such given the remoteness. We're not really into all that partying either. That's why I love our RV! I'd be such a grouch if we lived in a dorm :) We plan to spend at least one summer in Yellowstone eventually. Just haven't made it there yet, and it looks like you'll be moving on before we do.
People either love Q or they hate it. We tend to keep to ourselves, and like it on the boring side. We're sort of rockhounds, and here we have amazing opportunities to collect rocks. I usually serve and my husband cooks. Lots of hours, as the town is mostly retired. We stay in town with hookups. We work way to much to dry camp. I actually gets really busy here in Jan when all the RVs come. We are here long before they get here and well after they leave.
We have good friends that worked at Death Valley last winter. They have like interests as us, and really seemed to like it there. I'm not sure what component they were at. I would love to be a gardener, but I don't have any formal experience. Was that hard to get?
Hope you fared well during that crazy storm earlier this week! Our family in So. Wisconsin and No. Illinois got hit pretty hard, but at least it was mostly snow. Ice storms scarey me!
We are in Quartzsite again this winter. We've got a good thing going on here. How was death valley? We'll make it there to work a season eventually. Not sure what's up with this summer yet. We've got some things in the oven, just got to decide where we want to be. We spent the last two summers at the same place in CO. It may be time for a change.
I just got off the phone with HR for DNC, and I will be starting May 9th at Canyon.
Can you tell me about the training, and what I might be doing as a server?
I understand that it is extremly busy, And I look forward to that. And I know that we work splits too. What else should I expect?
Hope all is well, I guess I'll be working up at Canyon after all.
There are a lot of new changes in upper, upper Management in DNC, so it will be fun to see what happens this year.
I hope to come back and work with the set-up crew again. But I'm sure to be working as a server. I look forward to it, everyone I've talked to says that Canyon General store is one of the better ones out there. :o)
Hope you have a great Christmas and a Happy (safe) New Year!!
