About Me:
I have come to the realization that the typical American dream of 2.5 kids a house with a white picket fence and the dog does not exist for me. Instead, I have accepted the fact that for the most part I am going to be alone and transient in this world. There is too much to see, too much to do and such little time on this Earth to possibly do it all. But, Hell there is no harm in trying is there! So, I am going to work my way around this world and enjoy my love of people, food, drink, writing and hope that I can find a niche that I can fit myself into and be happy.
Last Seasonal Job:
Rio Blanco Ranch, Mountain Sky Guest Ranch
Favorite Seasonal Job:
Coldfoot Camp
Dream Job:
To own and run a back country lodge or ranch

Day 2

Good Morning South Dakota! The greatest thing about camping is waking up with the sun. Well, at least I wake up with the sun. Angie still enjoys sleeping in as late as I allow her to. The KOA was a welcoming sight in the morning. The "K"ampground was teeming with National Park employees enjoying a preview day of the grounds and also taking advantage of pancakes, sausage biscuits w/gravy and bacon from the kitchen. We, however, only opted for coffee that… Continue

Work in New Zealand this winter!

Posted on May 7, 2009 at 12:25pm 8 Comments

This winter I will be attempting to do something that I am sure a lot of you here on CoolWorks have either thought about doing yourself; or have already done but wished you would have had some help.

Some people here thought it would be a great idea to share with you some of the information that I have gathered to try and make it easier for the rest of you. What a fantastic idea!

As my plan goes now I am planning to be there from Mid-Oct/ April. I do not have firm dates but this… Continue

National Park Cross Western Tour...Help Me!

Posted on May 7, 2009 at 9:30am 3 Comments

I am starting out at Rio Blanco Ranch on June 1 +/- 2 days. So my girl friend and I, or rather me really decided that it was necessary to take a little bit of time to reach our destination. In an attempt to please me, distract me or simply just not have to do it herself she leaves me with the sole responsibility of planning the trip. Really? Does she have any idea what she is getting herself into? Quickly I pull out my National Park Passport book. There are a lot of stamps I need between here… Continue

yeah unfortuinately you have to have some hospitality because not only are you dealing with animals but you're dealing with their crazy owners!!! i wish your g/f luck - it is a very rewarding job! although the pay is not up to par!

Wait.........I just noticed your originally from Ohio. Please don't say your a Buckeye fan!

Thanks! What's your beef with Michigan, anyway? When I started this "journey" about a month ago I WAS looking at ranch jobs. I've actually applied and spoke to a ranch in CO and waiting to hear back from them. Now that I've had time to do research though I am finding myself oooooing and aaaaaing at every different position and place. I originally wanted to go to Alaska but think it is a better idea to get an idea of the seasonal positions around the "lower 48". Any thoughts? Also looking at Lake Powell for summer and still looking for possible winter jobs next year. Can't start anything until early March 2010 due to travel plans. After that I'm as free as the open road! Cheers.
