9:15 am - Wednesday - September 27th - 39º F, 85% humidity, wind 1 mph out of the south by southeast.....clear blue skies with contrails......forecast high for this day is 59º F in Gardiner, MT, and in Mammoth Hot Springs, WY 59º F, also.  Headed out to do some more site seeing today!  Slept in until almost 9 am today.....wow.....double wow!

Well, TLE and I have very big news to share this morning!  I alluded to a new adventure awaiting us for the summer of 2018 (next summer!), and now it has been confirmed.  After submitting our resumes and then doing a lengthy phone interview we have been accepted to work at an RV park just outside the gates of Acadia National Park in Maine!  We will be living about 12 miles from Bar Harbor, and in the middle of one of the most beautiful places in this country for about 5 months.  We're going to keep the name of the RV park 'under our hat' for now, but suffice it to say that this could not have worked out better.  We will be in a location which enables us to explore New England at our leisure, something we have wanted to do ever since we hit the road nearly 6 years ago.  We will be paid $11/hour for all hours worked, and if we complete our contract we will receive a $1/hour bonus for every hour worked at the end of the season.  Now we must fight the temptation to get too far ahead of ourselves.......May, 2018 is still 7 months into the future......there is a lot on our plate before that time.  Nevertheless, we are happy to know we will finally be able to tour New England!

Tuesday was a very, very laid back day for us......we were off work, of course, so we slept in...... 


.....when I stepped out the front door I was greeted by 4 deer who had taken up residence on my artificial turf once again......my presence, of course, startled them, and they quickly made their way to another site.......


.......around 12:30 we began our drive over to Chico Hot Springs for one last soak.....on our way we changed things up, deciding to continue all the way to Livingston for a late lunch at Katabatic Brewing Company........after a brief 5-10 minute stop at a construction zone we arrived in Livingston around 1:30 pm.........

A signal controlled construction zone

.......Katabatic was relatively busy when we entered, but we were able to find a table and quickly ordered.  You may recall that they are directly next door to a good Mexican restaurant, so we ordered from them.....I had their Chile Relleño, and TLE had their Mexican Hot Dog......to chase those entrees we both ordered the Katabatic Scotch Ale, which is still the best of this title I have every sipped!  I love it when we make things up on the fly.....what a great lunch, and I am so happy we were able to visit Katabatic one more time before we depart.

On our way back north to Chico we stopped off at the RV park where we will be staying in just a week to check out the site they had reserved for us.....it is a long 65' pull through, which will be perfect for us.....we won't have to drop the trailer!

We arrived at Chico Hot Springs around 2:45 pm and were soaking in their hot pool within 10 minutes......we only stayed in the hot pool for an hour, but we emerged totally relaxed and refreshed.  On our way home we were stopped once again at the construction zone, but we didn't care......we had received our Maine job offer while eating at Katabatic, and we had just soaked in a hot mineral pool for an hour......no need to worry about a 10 minutes rest stop along the way!

We were home before 5 pm, and relaxing shortly after that......what a great day of pretty much doing nothing, but in the end so much was accomplished!  One more piece of good news......I was able to cancel my DirecTV NFL Sunday Ticket without penalty, and received a full refund of what I had already paid.  Apparently DirecTV (AT&T) has decided that they don't want to be on the opposite side of millions of Americans who are fed up with the injection of politics into sports.  Normally, if you cancel in the midst of the season there is a penalty....usually you continue the monthly payments whether, or not you are watching.

Thanks for stopping by!

  1. Good for you! I grew up in New England - you'll love it. Plenty of good seafood and (unfortunately) mosquitoes. Congrats!
