Another day in the salt mines

Today we signed our work agreements, received our keys and were trained how to drive the electric vehicle we have at our disposal. That took about half an hour. Then we washed it and drove it up and down the campground a while to get the hang of it. That was it. I know it sounds like tough work, but I think we are up to it.

Daryl, the beach is at the foot of the 100 foot bluff we are on. There are several trails down to the beach so it is probably about a 1/4 mile hike to get there. The actual surf is about 100 yards from us. We can hear it sometimes, but with the road noise it is not often. Being on the bluff keeps most of the salt spray from getting to us so that is a good thing.

After our tough morning's work we rode the scooter into town to pick up my prescription at Walmart and buy a few groceries. Later this afternoon we took a walk down the beach to get some exercise.


  1. Is this all volunteer? In return you get a free space, is that the deal?

    Spaces without hookups cost $25/day, and you have a hookup right? So guessing $35/day, or roughly $1000/month.

    Not bad pay for driving an electric car around next to the beach an hour a day! Of course you have to break up the wild bikini parties, and admonish the nude bathers, so at times it might get exciting...

  2. I'm sorry to hear you guys are having such a rough time of it. ;)

  3. Sounds like things are going well for you. Have fun on the beach and don't work too hard!

  4. Nothing happening there lately?
