Work In Progress

August 5, 2019 |

Ahh, being a creative writer. Sometimes the words come easy, sometimes they don’t. They’re being particularly stubborn when it comes to Yellowstone. I’m working on it as I can, and in the meantime I just wanted to let you all know that: Yellowstone was fun, Julie and I had a blast backpacking (and weren’t eaten…

Mountain Moods

August 19, 2016 |

My current camp near Steamboat Springs CO is, in my opinion, the prettiest I’ve ever had. The sweeping views at the top of this hill are incredible and I just can’t get enough of it. It’s been a stormy few days up here at 10,000 feet and today I’d like to share some of the pictures…

Today was my last day of work, woohoo! I’ve had a good season at Amazon here in Haslet, TX but I’m definitely ready to move on and try boondocking out in the desert this winter for the very first time. But first, some housekeeping. I’ll be in Boyd RV Park until the morning of the…

At the end of my post last week, I mentioned that I’d purchased Marine-Tex from Amazon, but ran out of time to explain why. Here’s a visual explanation. These photos make me think my next project should be giving Cas a good wash, heh. * * * Thank you for doing your usual Amazon shopping…

Working the 11th hour at Amazon and getting out at 5:30 pm does have one advantage, we’re treated to views like this on the way home. Sunset in the business district of Haslet this past Saturday. This was taken from a moving vehicle, so you’ll have to excuse the fuzziness. I love how “wide” the…

December 1, 2015 |

I think this past weekend was possibly the wettest I’ve ever experienced in my whole life. It started raining on Thanksgiving and continued through Sunday. Boyd got over five inches, bringing the total for October and November to nearly 20 inches.  To date, the Dallas/Fort Worth area has already had 58.78 inches of rain this year…

Went with coworkers to eat at Xchan Thai House in downtown Decatur, TX after work yesterday and grabbed this photo of the courthouse as the sun was setting. I’ve put in 53 hours this week, although the 5th day was voluntary instead of mandatory this time. I’m continuing to grab as much overtime as I…

Today my carpool buddies and I worked ten hours instead of eleven and we got out while it was still light (most of the driving to and from work happens in the dark, see picture at left) so I thought I should snag a picture of the outside of the Haslet warehouse while I had the chance.…

Those of you who’ve been following me at least a year know that when Amazon starts piling on the overtime that the two or three hours I get that aren’t devoted to work or sleeping are devoted to eating, showering, and relaxing, and time is at a premium. Well, the Receive department is on mandatory overtime,…

  Had a pretty major issue crop up today that kept me from being able to finish a regular post, so today is a picture day instead. Rest assured that I am fine, just lacking time. I took this today on my drive through the Tetons. Of all the things that could be closer than they…

December 19, 2014 |

Last night at Amazon, we got about three hours of work in before running out of stuff to do. The managers called all us campers down to the standup area, and while they couldn’t legally tell us to “go home”, they strongly suggested it. So after confirming that we still got our bonus if we…

This is Chance, Julie’s cat and our current third roommate. He’s a special needs kitty that Julie took home from her vet tech job when the previous owner became unable to take care of him. He has allergies, IBD, and no teeth, but he’s very sweet and loving. At 15, we wondered how he would…
