workin' away.

Sorry my blog posts have been a little sparse lately but for 5 out of the 7 days per week we just work, sleep and repeat. Our days off have mostly consisted of driving into Rapid City to get our Christmas shopping done and those gifts wrapped and shipped to our loved ones. I forgot how quickly those two days off pass before it's time to head back to work. Last summer we worked the same 40 hours per week but they allowed us to work four ten hour shifts and we sure miss those three days off. I am hoping next summers schedule may be similar but who knows.

One day we did take a nice long drive through the Hill's. We were on the look out for wildlife and were not disappointed. We drove through Wind Cave National Park and into Custer State Park and I remembered my camera this time!

I keep thinking back to last year  at this time and we were almost done with our Amazon jobs. We met a lot of good friends there and most of them returned to work there again this season. They are almost done! Congrats guys, it's hard work but I remember that sense of accomplishment we felt when we left SDF1 that last night. Enjoy some Waffles and Bacon at the Huddle House for Rudee and I! I'll keep you posted.


  1. Glad to hear that you are settled in and still having time to enjoy the local sights.
    Be Safe and Enjoy!

    It's about time.

  2. Good to hear things are going well, and you didn't have any RV repairs to write about! 4 more days for us! This was a very quick 12 weeks at Amazon this year. Merry Christmas to you and Rudee!

  3. Sounds like you're workin' away . . . but what an awesome place to do it! Thanks for the update. Enjoy!

  4. How awesome that you were able to see the big horn sheep. I've so wanted to see them in the wild, but so far no luck. Merry Christmas!


  5. For me, it's always exciting to see the wildlife. Here it is the sea birds. Sounds like you are liking your jobs. Have a great Holiday.

  6. 3 1/2 nights left here. We have missed you. Saturday night about midnight we'll be having that farewell breakfast. Hoping to swing by and see you folks this fall.
