The life of a Park Operator involves many jobs..
- cleaning bathrooms
- garbage pick up
- collecting park fees
- selling firewood
- cleaning sites
- mowing and weedwacking
- painting and other maintenance work
- making sure the campers are ‘happy’..
..our days are full and most days run into the evening as well..
One of the other time consuming jobs we have to complete is the ‘recycling’…Doug has built a new sorting table to make this job much easier..
There is a bag for beer cans, tetra packs, water bottles, pop cans, and large plastic containers…we put the glass bottles on the table in boxes..
There are also the trips to Kamloops to get supplies for the park and of course do our own grocery shopping and to drop off the recycling at the Bottle return Depot…
No wonder the days fly by!!…we are so thankful to have Hugh, Brian and Barb who volunteer here for the season..they are a huge help with the garbage pick up, site cleaning and mowing…among other duties…this park wouldn’t be what is without their help…
..We are still using our ‘mouse swimming pool’..seems to have solved the ‘rodent in the trailer’ problem, at least for now..
There have been a few ‘swimmers’ over the past few weeks..
One of the campers were kind enough to give us an anniversary gift…flowers, champagne and orange juice and a lovely card..
and then there was a trip to the post office and another card from Brenda and Ken and a ‘gift card for Tim Hortons’..so nice to be remembered…
We are, indeed learning that you ‘can’t please everyone’..there are some who just like to ‘be difficult’…most of the time it has to do with the collecting of the camp fees, but I would say 99% of the campers are very co-operative with regards to adhering to the BC Parks rules/regulations..
We had a camper arrive the other night with an awesome 4WD rig..the Earth Roamer..
They have a blog as well..www.whiteacorn.com
be sure to visit their blog..looks like it is an interesting read for those ‘armchair travellers’!!
so there you have my recap of the last few days…the
end for now..
