bats in the belfry

Yep..We had a bat dive-bombing the customers and the employees at the restaurant last night. It was hilarious! I love this place... too much fun. I hope you all are having as good a season as I am. :0)

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

Awesome day in Alaska

I was so lucky to hop on one of our company planes and take the hour flight down to fairbanks today. I needed to get some things in town and God blessed me with a awesome day !! I checked into the go north hostel which is very nice. I rented a bike planning to ride to wal mart to get everything I needed. I stopped at the thrift store and found some hiking boots that are still in good conditon for only $10 that saves me at least $70!! I also found a nice pair of columbia light weight pants that… Continue

I can finally say I have been to Montana!

Today...for the very first time in my 59 year existance...I entered the State of Montana. The first few miles looked very much like northern Wyoming (fancy that) but then things began to change. The vistas became even bigger, and the mountains on the horizon slowly grew until they pierced the clouds and dominated the view. What a spectacle for someone who's home is on a coastal plain that is flatter than a pancake. As we drove up the valley along side the Yellowstone River every bend produced… Continue

Settling Down For The Long Haul

Here I am already a month into the work here at Mt. Rushmore. So far we have had a mixed bag of weather, snow,rain and sunshine. Sometime all in one day. We just about have a full working crew and can settle down for the summer. One or two have washed out already, other's moved into new position. The RV park we stay in, is all but full. The new owner of Xanterra Parks and Resorts have started putting their changes in place. More will be coming as time goes by. Business has been steady. We make… Continue

The blink of an Eye

Well it seems that over the weekend someone turned on the summer switch here in Downtown Anchorage. The sun has come back with a vengeance, the trees sprouted leaves over night, and all the dang ol' tour buses have returned. It seems like only yesterday it was -35 and pitch dark here, but yet here I am soaking up the mid-morning sun in my office like a happy little lizard.



I have been in Alaska now for just over a year. There is a great deal of pride in that last sentence. And not… Continue

Work in New Zealand this winter!

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
