May 5, 2008 Hartland, MI

We spent the weekend at Waldenwoods RV Resort. We were able to meet with and enjoy some of our fellow Workkamping Rangers and it made for a very enjoyable time. They have hired married couples this year as Rangers as an experiment. Friday night we went to the Bellringer Lounge with several of the couples for pizza and had a great time. The schedule is changing almost daily but it looks like, for the month of May, I will be working Friday and Saturday nights at the large hall that hosts parties and weddings and in June will probably have a day added to work days in the park. We are leaving the Montana set up at the park and will spend several days a week living there and the rest at home. Since Waldenwoods is located only 20 miles from home, there is no problem going from one to the other. Even in this time of high fuel costs, since the RV is set up, we can use the car and leave the truck at home.

Today we came out to Waldenwoods RV Resort where the Montana was set up and waiting for us. As soon as we got inside, the rains came. We were fortunate that we only had rain and thunder and not the horrific tornados that plagued the south. A nap cured our ills and we are now watching the rain and planning our next move. Last night we saw Meagon and her school class perform a musical show. It was very entertaining and, since Meagon was the star, it was great. Sunday we probably will go to the Brighton area and watch Jon play soccer. I work Monday on days as Ranger Jim here at Waldenwoods. That should really be fun. Just like Disney this winter, I am having a ball and they are paying me too. What a concept! Tomorrow we will see how homey we can make this site. We will be here for the summer so it will be nice seeing what we can do with the area. We had a low spot right at the stairs to the trailer and the park manager brought a load of dirt for this spot. Also, we now have a wooden porch floor under the steps, making it nicer. Tomorrow, if the rains stop, we will put rugs down to help keep the mud from the newly transferred dirt from entering the rig.
