Finally Time to Breath

We finally have a minute to breath!  It's been crazy since my last post.

The first part of March was completely overwhelming with getting the house emptied and set to go on the market in Austin, TX.  We opted to put some things in storage -- basically the good furniture and family keepsakes.  So we have 1 10x10 storage facility and 1 5x5.   

We're now in Branson, Missouri on our first workamping job together.  We're managing Branson View Campground here.  I would include a link to the website, but I haven't managed to get that working yet.  I HAVE installed Campground Master and have been setting that up.  The previous reservation system consisted of a bunch of slips of paper and a 3 ring binder with notes in pencil.  So I should be set for any future opportunities that say "must have Campground Master experience!"

The park has been neglected over the past few years so we're having to do some catch up.  We hired a company to come blow out all the leaves from the campsites.  They started on Friday... they finally finished on Monday.  Kevin is a bit frustrated because none of the equipment seems to work and no one shows up when they say they are coming.  I think we are getting cured of any desire to own a RV park someday... lol

We're taking today and tomorrow off.  First days off since we got here on March 23rd.  Maybe we can do something fun today and have cool things to report tomorrow...


  1. How about some pictures of the campground? It sounds like you've got a lot of work to do there. You deserve a few days off for R&R! :)

  2. You said you expected some challenges. Looks like you found them. I am sure you will get things in better order in short time. Good to see your post as I was wondering how you are doing.

  3. Just flew home from Europe and finally had a chance to sit down and read your blog. It sounds like your new life is one adventure after another. Glad to read that all is well. Debbie
