You never know when your guardian angel will be there for you so I have to try...

Your response will be interesting.. Pay attention to what you read.

Here goes:

People come into your life for a reason, a season or a lifetime.

When you know which one it is, you will know what to do for that person..

When someone is in your life for a REASON, it is usually to meet a need you have expressed. They have come to assist you through a… Continue

Shelby...I do hope to meet you someday! Ahh...the level of happiness that your video provided was awesome. I did share it with a few close friends of mine...just so they can get an idea of what and why certain souls go back to Alaska. I will always be thankful. Sincerely, Judy

yellowstone was great. i met a lot of good people from all over the world. drinking is the national pasttime, but there's also plenty of great trails and beautiful scenery. i worked at the lake hotel, and from what i've heard that's the place to be.

Hey Shelby! What will you be doing at Yellowstone? It definately will be a great season this year. I'm excited and cant wait to venture out there. I'll be in Bozeman, MT but plan to spend alot of time in Yellowstone and Grand Tetons.

What is your job at Old Faithful?? I will be working the front desk and start April 30th. I am excited and just crossing my fingers that all goes as planned.

Hey. I saw your note about which dorm to try for at Old Faithful. It depends on if you like to party or not. The party dorm is Columbine. I worked there last summer and lived in Larkspur, which was the nicest. It was a 24 hour quiet dorm with private bathrooms. Just a warning, the food is horrible.

Cool. Really all that I need is a statement about your favorite spot n the USA. Why its so cool, what there is to do around there, and maybe some neat activities? My website is and it should be ready at the end of the week. Thank you very much for your help.
At 12:56am on January 26, 2009, Dallas said…
Hey thanks for the comment. Im actually starting a web site about outdoor travel and Im looking for quotes or info on cool places you've been to. I should have the site up and running in a few weeks and any help would be appretiated.

I am going to OF snow lodge on April 23. I am going to be in house keeping. When are you going and what location and job did you get? If you want you can email me at
At 10:18am on January 13, 2009, Kate said…
Hey Shelby,
The only place in Old Faithful that has 3 people per room is Columbine Dorm. So you won't have to have 4 or 5. Old Faithful is the busiest, so, more people to meet. It's going to depend, though, on what job you get, your availability dates, as to where in the Park you go. Sometimes they ask where you'd like to be and sometimes they don't. Each location has good things about it. Enjoy!

I am still looking, where are you thinking of going?

I found out about the Yellowstone Degree program when at the pre-season meeting for all location employees it was mentioned...and more information can be had at the Recreation Hall or Rec Dept. Plus, on your own as well, visiting the visitor's center(s) there, there are a lot of great books on all sorts of Yellowstone and related subjects. I highly recommend a stop at the Canyon Visitor's center; it has the BEST bookstore of any of them! It's very easy to self-educate in Yellowstone :)

Thank you so MUCH I really enjoyed. I live in south Florida and photo is the only way I want to see all that snow.
