Ranger Rich Rants ... Volume 2 sort of

I'm headed into week 3 at Mesa Verde and I am still loving this job!   Sure, I've explained how to get to Cliff Palace about 1,000 times and will surely do this 100,000 times more ... but I honestly try to let the visitor think this was the first time I explained it :-)   I have met a really nice guy and co-worker Franz who seems to have a "mini-me" persona about him.  He's something like 5-6 years younger than me but we have very similar histories and likes/dislikes.  He's my perfect hiking…

Would like to say hello.....also seeking information...

Hello, My name is Lisa and I want to say that I am happy to be a new member of CoolWorks. I also want to share with you the reason I chose to join you. Would love to make new friends to share information with and receive some as well from new and seasoned RV'ers. My husband, Ray, and I have long had a dream of traveling by RV across the U.S., but because of having to work to make ends meet have been unable to do so. Our daughter and only child will soon be married, so we are hoping to be…

Settling In is not for Wimps

I arrived at Jackson Lake Lodge last evening, after 5 days on the road (visiting family, driving 2100 miles) and sort of feel wind blown.

Everyone is fantastic, the views are fabulous, and I have my roomie, Terry, introducing me to all the friends. I hope to remember as many names as possible.


Just a lot to remember, the maze from EDR to uniform department, the orientation check in, etc. The walk from dorms to Main building. It will look different once all the snow…

I am looking for some Leads

I am currently looking for some help from the coolworks community. I am seeking to relocate out of Michigan due to the struggling economy. My family and I would ideally want a position where we can live and work in a peaceful setting. Our family consists of myself(37), my wife Jennifer(40) and my daughter Elizabeth(15) and we have 3 dogs that would be with us, Baby(9), Shelby(8), and Maska(1) and our 2 small cats Baxter and Dexter(2). They are all very well behaved and nice. I have a degree…

Made it to Alaska

Well, made it finally!  Long day that started at 7 am in GA.  Three long plane flights that were pretty ordinary.  Didn't sleep much but enjoyed watching other people sleep and one who was a real bobble head.  Thought she would break her neck and thought about offering her my pillow.  But then thought, she's young and can carry her own pillow! 

Arrived in Anchorage to - surprise - rain!!  Found my luggage, that someone else thought was theirs so had to set them straight.  Got a cab…

Ready to take flight.

The summer is season is upon!


As the cold of winter fades to spring, as it will to summer. I feel myself readying for my trip north again, as if an inner migratory behavior has come over me.


My winter was cold and dark, filled with spots of warmth. As I feel myself began the thaw, my bags are packed, but I know I will be going over it once more.


This year I shall be spending my third season in Alaska. I have come to find a position within Kenai…

On The Road Again

I'm heading out next Monday, so this week is all about last minute:
last load of laundry, last town day, last packing, last kisses.

A bunch of us leave behind dear ones, staying in touch via phone and internet. Snail mail is so passe'.

Looking forward to meeting a ton of friends, and baking a bunch of goodies at Jackson Lake Lodge.

Stay safe all you friends out there, driving to work, two thousand miles all at once. :D

See you soon, Terry!
