Opening day!

Considering how much we had cleaned the last two days, we were only expected to do a quick walk through at 8:00 this morning, noon, and 8:00 this evening.  When we finished our noon rounds, Tim asked if we’d like to work more this afternoon.  The person who cleans the yurts is either not here yet or hasn’t started, and Tim needed help so we agreed to help right after lunch.  

Mark wanted me to bicycle up and back with him a couple times.  I told you about the inclines around here.  I got my cardio in today!

It was neat getting to go inside all the yurts today and see what they looked like.  With Tim and Mark and I all working together we got six yurts clean in three hours.  We had a system going!

So I promised pictures of the place.  Here’s what I got today:

The outhouse from the outside (with a clown in front of it!)

I asked Mark to stand next to this cedar tree to show how large it is.  This is what I got.

Tim likes to provide us with drinks after we've finished working.  It's some kind of sparkling fruit juice.  There's a whole refrigerator full in the back for employees to drink because they are a month past their expiration date.

This shows the office/store on the right, the building on the left is the front bathrooms, and the second story above the office is where Tim and Kathy live.  Under their apartment is the game room and the adult lounge.

These are some of the yurts we cleaned today.  They're kind of a cross between a tent and a cabin.  They sleep six and they are quite nice inside.

By the time you read this it will be my birthday.  Mark let slip tonight that my birthday is tomorrow and Kathy said whenever it’s someone’s birthday they have a party and treats. She said I didn’t give her enough forewarning so she’s not sure what she can scrounge up, but whatever she comes up will be more than I’ve gotten anywhere else I’ve worked as a Workamper!
