Happy Thanksgiving to ALL!!!
It has been a while since I last posted, but not much has been going on here except working at Amazon. My body is finally getting used to the type of work I am doing. I pack one item per box and it was very busy here. On Wednesday they sent me home after just 1/2 day since the work had slackened off a bit. They explained my name was drawn from a hat and after Thanksgiving day they expect it to be nonstop work with mandatory overtime as well. I am already scheduled to work overtime on Saturday so my work week instead of starting on Sunday will begin on Saturday instead.
I did receive my new Nikon Coolpix S9100 (from Amazon, who else) and yesterday gave me a chance to walk around the park and take a few pics. My home for two months while I work at Amazon is the Desert Rose RV Park. It is located 6 miles outside of Fernley, NV. The city has a population of about 13, 000 so it is not very large, but it does have all the stores I look for such as Walmart, Lowe’s, etc. There are also several gambling casinos there as well but I haven’t ventured into one of them yet as I have either been to busy working or spending time to let my body recuperate.
The park has many beautiful trees throughout, but we had some really high winds last week and it blew most of the leaves off them.
Most of the people staying at the park are workkampers for Amazon. They are from all parts of the country and I have met some really nice folks.
This is my site. You can rent a 20 gallon propane tank from the park, which I hooked up to my extend-a-stay propane connection. I can now utilize the 20 gallon tank, my own propane tank and my barbecue as well. I decided to get the 20 gallon tank because the weather here dips down into the 20’s and less at night. I also run my electric heater as well.
The weather has been really nice throughout the day, usually in the high 50’s or low 60’s so it is real pleasant.
I am so thankful to all my readers for following me on my journeys. I really enjoy writing this blog, but I find it difficult to write daily if I am not traveling and don’t have much to say. I have another 4 weeks to go and I will finish my contract with Amazon. Then I plan to fly to So. CA. to spend Christmas with my family. Then it is on the road again and I intend to start posting more often.
