Catch Up Time: In my last post I was volunteering as a camp host at Shenango Lake in Pennsylvania. After a year without one, I finally bought another kayak and spent some blissful times on the lake.
As a camp host, I cleaned out fire pits with a shovel and rake and threw the ashes onto the bed of the trusty John Deere which poured out smoke from its underbelly if I left it running but otherwise made it to the ash dumping grounds and back. I also spent some time in the information booth where I mostly did the Miss America wave to people coming in with legit car passes.
On my last day there, a gentleman drove by my campsite, stopped and said You are doing a great job. I replied to him, Sir, you just made my day. I so appreciate and will always remember that.
My camp site only had an electric hookup. So without water in my little home on wheels, I traveled each morning to the bathhouse for a shower and to clean dishes.
On to the Present: Once again I am working with the Amazon CamperForce for the peak season.
I am now in a full hookup site in Clarksville, Indiana. Each morning, I still think I have to go out to shower. Then I remember where I am and turn on my faucet and water comes out. The marvels of modern civilization. Isn’t life grand!
This time I am living on the Ohio River right where (in days of yore) Lewis and Clark met and their great adventure began.
I see it as a portend of my own journey and this new adventure.
