Mark’s progress: Rowley’s Bay

From the time Mark entered Door County, he has been staying with a couple from my church, John and Georgene Mann.  They let him park the RV in front of their milking barn.  They didn’t have the right kind of hookups for him, but between his generator and his propane tank, he managed.

Almost home!

Last fall, I wrote about how God opened the treasure houses of heaven and showered Mark and me with more blessings than we could have ever imagined.  Money was coming from multiple sources in unexpected ways.  But it wasn’t just monetary blessing.  I’ve been waiting for months to write about what God is doing for us… Continue reading

Employment

I have been working at Williams-Sonoma for about two weeks now, and today I got my first paycheck.  It’s only for the first week I worked, but it’s about as much as I sometimes earned in a two week period at Wagon Trail Campground.  Of course, I had an easier job at Wagon Trail Campground and more beautiful surroundings and my bosses and co-workers were like family, so those perks were worth more than money to me.

From Wausau, WI

After four years of moving around, we have finally learned that we need to make our first day a shorter drive than any of the others.  This is because there is always more to do to get going than we anticipate, and because we stop on our way to load up with paper plates, plastic ware and easy food for the trip.  We have to put everything on our counters (both bathroom and kitchen) into the sinks so it won’t fall on the floor while we are on the road.  Thus, the need for paper plates!

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.

Joe, the bird tamer!

This afternoon after Mark and I finished cleaning, we were in the office chatting with Rosanne when we looked out the window and saw Joe Velez filling the bird feeders in the courtyard.  Then we saw something incredible that Mark was able to take pictures of on his phone…

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

The Sound of Music

On April 29, 2015, Mark and I were driving to Wagon Trail Campground for the first time.  We were a little bit scared.  We had had a number of Workamping jobs where either the boss didn’t like us or our co-workers didn’t like us or both.  We prayed as we passed the Welcome to Door County sign that this would be a good situation for us.  God surpassed all that we could think or imagine.  Wagon Trail Campground is gorgeous, as you well know from my blogs and pictures, and our bosses and co-workers have become like family.  I thought we’d be coming back here for as long as our bodies could hold up.

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
