Summer’s evolved into a fast & furious sequence of planned and mostly unplanned events.
The campground has exploded into a summer marathon of campers, boaters, picnickers, bicyclists, bikers, hikers and every species of looney-tune character imaginable.
Our “volunteer” duties have also evolved into being advisor, therapist, teacher, parent, tour guide, scheduler, juggler, nurse/doctor, traffic & animal control, toilet plunger specialists, rule enforcer, delivery service, baby sitter and like it or not, anything else that comes along.
The majority of the folks are awesome! Easy to please and grateful for the services we provide…but now and again ya get those folks who just ain’t happy ‘bout nothin’!
We have also been showered with curses, pummeled by criticism and if looks could kill we’d have all met our maker weeks ago.
I’ve learned that if you travel during peak summer vacation months and don’t have the foresight to make reservations it’ s my fault when you stop and the campground is booked, not only for that night but for weeks in advance.
Who knew I had such extensive powers???!!!
On the flip side, many go out of their way to thank us for our hard work and for ensuring others stay within the boundaries of the “rules” so everyone’s stay is drama free. After all, that’s why people come here, to get away from life’s everyday drama.
On July 4th I even had someone who thanked us for working so others could enjoy the Holiday.
Now it’s things like that you have to cling to when someone is reading you the riot act.
Like most of life’s whirlwinds, ya just take from it what ya need & toss out the rest.
