Thanks for being here! The six of us at CoolWorks welcome you and wish you success in finding your Jobs in Great Places®!

I have been reading a number of blog posts around CW lately and am fascinated by the poetry and raw idealism so many of our young members express in their writings here. I think young people that opt for seasonal jobs probably have a tendency to look at life and nature a little differently than the "average" person. They are people who see something special in a sunrise or sunset, a cool breeze, or a flower in bloom. I guess I had this same attitude and perceptions when I first left high school, but somehow these got lost for a while (like 30 years!) and are just now coming back to me slowly. I seemed to have racked up a lot of years on the old body, but feel like I am slowly getting younger inside. It's a good feeling. While I have lost my outward youth, I have gained some other things that may help the next phase of my life along. While not really rich, I have enough material wealth now to be able to take jobs I want to do, and feel completely free to discard any job I don't enjoy. So I am looking forward to my summer in Yellowstone, and meeting a lot of young, idealistic men and women with their lives and careers in front of them. I can give them the benefit of my rear view mirror if they care to take a look, or, if not, we can just sit and watch the sun go down together.

Amen Richard. I came to Yellowstone for a summer job at age 19 in the early 70's. That eyes-wide-open magic of the first season is powerful stuff. The magic continues, even if it's not the same as that first trip west. I'm a spoiled brat, having made a life and living around Yellowstone.

Let me know when you're in the area. I'd love to meet you.
