Change of Plans…Again!

Once we leave here, we were going to the coast of Washington and drive it all the way down to San Francisco, a plan that we had been wanting to do for years. But, we got a call about a 5 day assignment in Reno, Nevada at The Reno National Championship Air Races and we jumped at the chance. Working with Susan at Scootaround once again will be great and of course the extra money will be fantastic.

How much fun is this going to be, five days of REAL AIR RACING by six classes of aircraft, close-up access to racing aircraft, pilots, and crews in the pits, a world-class air show, a large static aircraft display, including the Heritage Trophy competition, and great concessions and amenities.

We had planned to check out Reno after we were done with the pumpkin lot, but instead, we will do it now and then flip flop the coastal plan. After the pumpkin lot and before the Christmas lot, we have 16 days and then our plan will include to go up the coast to Washington, staying as tight as we can to the coast, enjoying the fall weather.

It seems in seasonal work there is always 3 dimensions. First, the opening when everyone is getting to know one another and everyone works together to get the place opened. Then, everyone gets into the busyness work where guests are the main concern. Then finally, you have the closing, where most people are fed up, tired and just want it all to end, or for the most part many who have already left. But, the thing is, whoever is left must still work together to get the place closed for the season.

That is where we are, down to just over 2 weeks, one of those weeks we will be helping to close down many of the cabins and then the last week we will only have about 20 people here including guests and staff that we will be cooking and baking for, then onto our next adventures…Life is Grand!
