Kentucky, I'm supposed to show up July 5 (but planning to leave June 20 to allow time to get there). I'm supposed to stay until day after Labor Day. I imagine it would take me two weeks to get back home.
"ranger rick" (actually, it's Ranger Jim) at Wanapum State Park in Vantage says the job would start in June and end on Labor Day. Just a summer job, but would be available to me every year.
Made a list of plusses and minuses.
Both are going to be HOT.
Wanapum will be hot and WINDY (I've been here almost two weeks and survived four wind storms of 40mph + winds already!)
Kentucky will be HUMID, and my spot will have NO SHADE!
Crew at Wanapum is really fun, but also heard from Workamper.com folks that have worked at the Fish Hatchery in Kentucky, that it is also fun!
Also, staying at Wanapum, I would have to work 40 hours a week for three months. Well, the Camp Hosting spot is pretty easy, just do a few minor things for about 4 hours a day, but I end up exhausted from all the walking around. Makes me wonder if I can handle a 40 hour week after being "retired" (I'm a retired Federal Employee, except for doing some sub teaching) for almost four years. The Kentucky volunteer spot would be 3 on, 3 off, or something like that.
I told both Kentucky and "Ranger Rick" that I would give them a decision on Monday. Kentucky emailed me and said they have a "backup" available if I don't make it out there, that's good.
I think I'm going to toss a coin.
