End of season staff party

Today all the campers were supposed to be out of here by noon.  Mark and I needed to gather up any of the liquids we worked with that might freeze and put them in the heated garage.  We also needed to do one last wipe-down, not a full cleaning, so that the bathrooms would be okay for the winter.  Around 3:00 a couple people came in while we were working.  Other than them, the campground was almost like a ghost town.  Basically only the staff was here.

Fall staff and seasonal potluck

Yesterday after our afternoon cleaning, we joined the seasonals and staff for the annual fall potluck.  Here are some pictures: Continue reading

By request of Judy!

The president of my Wisconsin fan club, Judy Boldt, was after me today for not writing anything since my bicycle accident, so I’m dedicating this post to her!  This may be a bit of a mish-mash because I can’t quite decide which of several things to write about, but here goes: Continue reading

Only a week behind…

OK, so this happened last weekend:  We had the annual staff and seasonal spring potluck.  Usually they try to have it in May or early June when more of the staff can be available, but this time it was difficult for everyone to coordinate their schedule, so Mark and I and Chris and Deb were the only staff members who were able to attend.  Here are the pictures: Continue reading

The perks of working at Wagon Trail Campground!

Wednesday night, almost the entire staff, including Tim and Kathy who arranged it, got to take a boat tour of the bluffs with Shoreline Tours.  This came about because someone from the tour company took the Certified Tourism Ambassador (CTA) training with us a few weeks ago and they offered us a free tour.  I took well over two hundred pictures and it has taken me a few days to edit them all.  Now, picking just a few of these to show you is my next hurdle!

We’re certified!

Our boss is the greatest!  Kathy paid for everyone on staff who wanted to to get trained as a Certified Tourism Ambassador (CTA).  Mark and I went through the training today at The Clearing in Ellison Bay.  But first, a woman from The Clearing gave us a tour of the campus. Continue reading

My take on things

Mark mentioned in his guest blog that I was feeling overwhelmed a few days ago.  More on that at the end of this post, but for right now, here are some of the shots I took of the boat tour Tim gave us: Continue reading

Guest Blog: “Me” aka Mark Fuller

Hey, everbody!!  It’s Me!!!

Denise is feeling a bit overwhelmed and asked if I could do her blog for her tonight.  She wanted to write it last night, but the excitement of our boat ride caused her to run out of steam, even before she had time to finish editing all the pictures she took from our excursion.

Mother’s Day and the Big 6-0

Yesterday was Mother’s Day and I should have wished all you mothers out there a happy one, but I was too busy enjoying mine.  Sorry!  Today was my 60th birthday.  It was relatively normal with some special elements.  I have pictures from both days, although my pictures from today were taken on my phone and the quality isn’t quite as good.

From Harris, MI

Today we crossed the Mackinac Bridge into the Upper Peninsula (UP) of Michigan.  We can now say that we have slept in all forty-nine continental states and we’ve seen four of the five Great Lakes.  (We saw Lake Huron while crossing the bridge today.  The only one we haven’t seen yet is Lake Superior.)
