As you can see, our address has changed.
On Tuesday we were 'asked to leave' the KOA
where we have been workamping since early March.
We loved working there when we first started.
The work we were thrown into was
a bit out of the ordinary,
as there was storm damage,
and an upcoming KOA inspection.
I worked in the office, learning the ancient KOA DOS system.
A few mistakes were made, but not life or death ones by any stretch.
When not in the office I was asked to do outside weeding,
painting, and anything else deemed necessary.
I helped the manager by organizing his office,
and updating his filing system, entering a myriad of information
onto Excel spreadsheets for him.
George started off by helping clean up storm damage,
fixing and organizing things around the property,
even rewiring some electrical things.
Once the inspection was over,
it was daily duties..cleaning departing sites,
escorting guests to sites, etc.
More than occasionally George was pulled off of one project
to start working on another.
There was a lot of 'miscommunication' on both sides,
and a lot of this has caused us to feel more stress there
than was worth the pay & site.
The hiring on of 3 other workamper couples recently
made us wonder if we were really needed.
Most recently we've been feeling 'unwanted' in various ways
by the management couple there.
As it turns out, they are berated by the owners about everything,
which in turn causes them to berate others.
They say sh** rolls downhill, right? :-)
Apparently the management couple have given their notice
to leave there anyway.
Much to our surprise, we were called in yesterday morning
as we walked in to start our shift.
They took us to the back room and in a not-so-kind way
asked us to leave.
As you can understand both our jaws dropped!
When we asked what was going on,
they gave vague references to us
not finishing projects,
not doing our jobs,
all without any specific references.
Of course we were totally floored,
neither one of us saw it coming,
and we've had nothing but positive experiences
at every other job we've worked.
We packed up, turned in our yellow shirts and keys,
and got the heck out of there :-)
I wouldn't let them see me cry!
I immediately called the RV park where we were staying
from September to March, and was told we could stay
here for two weeks.
It's the busy season, so not sure we can get a monthly spot.
In the meantime we're doing some searching
for another workamping job.
Our plan is to find a summer job either
in Texas or maybe Pennsylvania.
I need to be in TX for annual doctor visits in September,
and we need to get to PA to see George's family!
We'd like to stop at the Vilano service center for a punch list
of things for them to address under warranty.
They are in Mississippi, so it could be on the way to PA.
Oh what a joy life can be!
We are keeping our chins up,
and I sure appreciate all the positive comments
about this situation on Facebook.
Love you all!
