We started our workamping job here and love it! It's a great KOA and the owners, Kelly and Sandy Rodwick, seem to have a lot of respect for workampers and they do enjoy their campground. There are four workamping couples here now - one couple strictly as the cleaning crew. Three of us couples share the inside/outside duties quite well, at least so far! Our own work shift is Thursday/Friday from 1-5pm and Saturday from 9-11am. The rest of our time is free for us to do as we choose - for us, that includes working on our hobbies and sightseeing.
We have started a list of restaurants we'd like to try during our approximate 6 months here, as well as a list of sightseeing opportunities.
Today we took our first day-trip for sightseeing! We visited the Tularosa Basis Museum of History. You can see some photos I posted with a review on Trip Advisor. It was a lot of fun. This museum occupies a relatively small corner in town, yet goes on forever once you are inside! It is filled with a ton of historical information and exhibits. Clearly a great deal of effort has been made to display a lot of information without overwhelming the visitor. I can see that we could easily go back for another visit, to read the detailed exhibits we didn't get to today. I had filled my head with so much incredible information, I couldn't absorb more - from the Trinity Site, to the railroad's influence in area, scouting "back in the day", the missions in the area, the school for the blind/visually impaired that is in town, the military presence in the area, shuttle landings, and so much more!
It was only $3 admission per person! You can't beat that these days.
I have to say, since having retired, we do take a lot more naps.....including one when we got back to the coach today!
Until next time,
