I have been so very blessed to have had the most amazing experiences since my heart took flight with Bill Kasson. This summer we workamped at Tahoe Valley Campground in South Lake Tahoe. This was our 4th summer camping here and my second workamping here. It's truly all about the people - the place and work are secondary. We worked 3 days a week, Mondays, Tuesdays and Wednesdays and my job was to "open" the store, as it was in 2011, I was given a lot of responsibility and relished in it. We worked for minimum wage and 1/2 off our site - not much compared to what I earn as a CPA but the experience and community we forged was beyond compare. Our co-workers ranged from an 18 year old, fresh out of high school, to seasoned veterans who have worked there for 10-15 years. My personality and background was so not suited to customer service, but even at this stage of life I can learn and grow.
When I asked my co-workers if they wanted my work shirt back dirty or clean, Sandy said, keep it and bring it back next year!
