So what is workamping all about?

C point 1

Well, our experience is somewhat limited.  We understand that many jobs at campgrounds come under the title of camp host.   At Mount Desert Campground, there is a bit of emphasis on the work part of  workamping…   and we like it that way 🙂

This is a pic of  the point in the C section of the campground after  a number of trees were cut down…   We arrived at this location around 8:30 this morning, after enjoying a strategy session in the warmth of the office….   we are told that the temperature could break 80 degrees on Thursday, but today was cold and foggy and drizzly.   So, this type of work is good for generating heat!

2 hours later, this is what the site looked like.

c point 2There is so much truth to the phrase “many hands make light work” … well,  maybe not.. this was not light work, but  it certainly was completed in a relatively short amount of time!   of course, it was many hands aided by a tractor 🙂

this is what the campers will see when they arrive late next week.

c point 3

looks pretty nice!   and where did all of this stuff go?

on the pile 🙂

c point 4 A large truck will come by to pick this up in the next few days…    of course, not every day of workamping is like this, but we do spend the month of May  preparing the campground for the season.  It is great work – very rewarding both physically and mentally..  and we sleep really well 🙂

    It’s amazing how much debris accumulates during the winter! Also, I thought all of it went to the burn pile. Thanks for the update and see you soon.
