Codybear -- We used to at an Ethiopian restaurant when we lived in DC. It's really good! Wish we could have joined you for that meal.[/quote]

Hi Jamie, btw, did you eat Ethiopian food near the Ethiopian Embassy in DC?..Steve said he did when he had to work in DC

Sharon, looking terrific!!!

Hey got my first work camper job!!!!!!! I leave in a couple of days for Port Angeles Washington to work at a campgrounds. I am excited but also is such a big milestone for me. I can't tell you how much I have been dreaming of the West coast and the mountains. Hoping to get in some great explorations and hiking and pictures during the summer season this year.

Future RV Pads

Okay here are some photos of where the RV Pads will be and the view and or surroundings.

The place is still a bit of a mess - with weeds and we are having the drive re-graded and graveled this summer too. Most of the off drive sites will be wood chip not gravel - and some are grass spots.

First - this is the prototype of the new Garage - the angle is not quite right but you get the drift. Pad #7 is to the right of the garage and pad #6 is to the left of the garage.

Details:
Using main house power ( 1 30 & 2 20's)
1 - up to 34', Gravel
2 - up to 34', Gravel
3 - up to 34', Gravel

Using bunkie power (1 20 and 2 15's)
4 - up to 30' Gravel
5 - up to 30' Wood Chip
6 - up to 25' Grass/Wood Chip

Using Garage Power ( 2 30 and 3 20's) with 8,9,10 & 11 on the new line to be installed from Garage.
7 - up to 20' Gravel
8 - up to 34' Gravel
9 - up to 25' Gravel/Grass
10 - up to 25' Gravel
11 - up to 30' Gravel

Parking for Tow Vehicles - pending the size combo some can stay with the Trailer - others we will find room Along the drive. - May have to juggle in and out depending who and when people want to come and go. Just like the true sense of cottage country you get used to innovative parking.

All spots are back in - but there is no tight turn around - You can pull into the drive now rather than backing down the drive. There is a full loop to which you can choose either to go left or right to position just right to back into the spot. All tree branches will be trimmed up and out of the way.

Last but not least - Pad #1 and 2 would be in for the long haul as they have trailers parked in front. (only negative) the rest can all pull out when and if needed.

WOW this is exciting!! Will you do a trip report along the way? How long will you work there? Full hook-up? Do I sound like I know what I'm doing?

Congratulations, Carol! Washington or Bust! Isn't Port Angeles very close to Canada? It will be beautiful, for sure. When do you leave?

Codybear -- The Ethiopian restaurant we ate at was in Northwest DC, but I don't think it was near any embassies. I tried to look it up, but there are dozens of Ethiopian restaurants in DC and I don't recall the name of the one we ate at. Maybe Doug will remember.

GT - the parking pads look super! In fact, the whole place is looking spectacular. You must be anxious to have it done more than "virtually".

Thanks, I have wanted to explore the area ever since I saw a picture from National Geographic Traveler.

I will receive full hook-up including wi-fi and a salary. The season goes to or through September and they keep one person on through the winter. I said I would leave in two days, they said they would see me in a week or so. I will try to post if I can along the way. It's listing as 38 driving hours and 2500 miles.

So Paula may have to swing South to see you and sample some of that great food and visit Sharon in courtesy parking when your project is all done and I come back East.

That should be beautiful. You are right on the water. Are you going by yourself?

Yup, going solo for this job. We are taking separate working vacations for this season. Brad is looking for a National Park job. We only started yesterday, so I beat him by at least one day. Brad was somewhat "coaxed" into early retirement last fall so we are taking advantage of the new found freedom. I also had a llama farm from North Georgia call me yesterday. It seems tis the season for work campers. Washington won out over the Blue Ridge Mountains for this anyway. I'd like to see sights further from home if at all possible.

What a woman! I see why your hubby bought his own AS . Which one are you taking?

I hope you'll bring along your computer and a digital camera to share your adventures with your silver sisters

I am taking the 27'. A quote I read a while back comes to mind, "She who travels light, travels shabbiest." I do tend to over pack though, however this time I may actually end up using most of what I bring. I intend to immerce myself in as much outdoor photography as I can, which really is one of the reasons we thought traveling in an Airstream would be ideal for our interests. I could never go too far or too long without being "connected," or downloading pictures. I'm hooked.

Congratulations, Carol! I've dabbled, researching the workcamper idea, but you've plunged right in. Do you know what kind of camp work you'll be doing? You are the original Rosie, for sure We'll all look forward to your updates with this new experience. Be thinking about you! The Northwest is a real draw for us too...someday soon, we hope. ~G
