Yes, the sun has set on Goodrich. Our job has come to an end as our last day was today. Been a great six months in a wonderful area. So whats next?
First, just some time off. We plan on staying here a few more weeks and enjoy some time without work. After that, who knows? We would like to find something around here and we have some ideas, just nothing solid yet. So it’s rest and relaxation, sleeping a little later, and we will find another adventure down the road.
Yes, 2 years ago on this day we started our full time rv adventure. It’s been a great ride so far, meeting a lot of people in a lot of different places. Currently in the Deep Piney Woods of East Texas working as Gate Guards. This has allowed us to bank some $$ and enjoy this area. We really like it and are scheduled to be here for several more months into the new year. No regrets and hope for many more posts like this one!
We had a catered BBQ lunch a few days ago. One of the workers where we work is paying for it and accepting donations. All money collected will go to a co-worker whose child will be having some serious surgery soon. This is just one example of the really wonderful people here that make this a great place to work! This lunch raised $2,000. with only about 50 workers. Best lunch we had in a while, it felt good after eating it!
I’m working the night shift until the other gate opens later, then we will both be working the day shift. After the gate closes around 6:30pm the site is empty of people until around 5:30am the next morning.
Lots of online movies, music, and whatever else I can find to keep me busy. Here is a few night critters I have found outside. Saw a skunk one night but wasn’t too interested in getting a picture, you probably know what one looks like anyway.
Well it’s getting dark, time to hunt for more night critters..gotta find something to do until morning. Getting paid to watch movies, take pictures, and drinking lots of coffee is hard work.
It’s been about 10 days now since moving to the Piney Woods of Deep East Texas. I must say it’s been good so far. The gate is easy, 4-5 minutes away from our park, and things are going well. Close to stores and we like our Rv park.
It’s been raining almost everyday, which has kept the temperatures down a lot. It’s raining now as I write this. This might just be a place where we stay a while!
We got an offer for a long term gate in the Piney Woods of the Livingston Texas area and we took it. Leaving tomorrow. Pine trees will look nice for a change. This gate should last a year or more so we won’t have to move for a while. Time to hit the road… more later.
