Leaks and Delays

December 30, 2015 | 102

Part way through writing this, I thought about deleting it and writing about something else unrelated to my current travels. Then I thought no, it’s important for people to realize that not all travel days will be fun or exciting as a full-time RVer, and this post definitely shows that. There are few photos because…

Lake Tawakoni State Park, TX

December 26, 2015 | 46

EDIT 12/27: Was not hit by the tornados last night, thanks for thinking of me! Thursday, December 24 Last post, Brian guessed correctly where I was heading: Lake Tawakoni State Park, east of Dallas. Why east when I want to go to Arizona? Because I still have that appointment at Little House Customs on the…

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…

Texas BBQ and A Rental Car

December 18, 2015 | 26

I’ve been on a quest here near Dallas/Fort Worth to find a good BBQ joint. I’ve found that barbecue varies a lot from state to state and it’s been interesting to sample different regions take on this favorite of mine as I’ve been traveling. In asking around, I learned that Hard Eight BBQ in Roanoke,…

Fort Worth Nature Center & Refuge

November 21, 2015 | 24

Friday, November 20 Ahh, it feels so good to laze around in bed! Dust motes dance slowly in the still air of the Casita, illuminated by sunlight peeking through the blinds. Reading while snuggled under the covers on a cool morning is one of life’s simple pleasures, but there are other fun things on the…

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…

CamperForce Receive Dept. Job Descriptions

November 13, 2015 | 27

Four weeks of CamperForce are in the bag and six more remain. In the Receive department where I’m working here in Haslet, TX, everyone continues to be on 55 hours a week mandatory although for CamperForce that’s only 50 hours mandatory as we have to work that 5th day, but do not have to work…

Fort Richardson State Park, TX

November 9, 2015 | 23

Thursday, November 5 What? A tornado warning? Gee, thank you Weather Channel for not giving me an alert. I suppose I should go to the shelter. It doesn’t look horrible outside… oh, I guess it is dark to the north. Wait a sec, where is the closest shelter? It’s certainly not the shower house/laundry area,…

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,…

Boyd RV Park

October 22, 2015 | 30

The move yesterday went fine and now Cas is snugged away in my new home base at Boyd RV, twenty miles closer to Amazon. And just in time too. It started raining this morning and it’s predicted we’ll get 3 to 6 inches by late Saturday night. So no fun outings for me this “weekend”…

Haslet CamperForce Orientation

October 15, 2015 | 28

Yesterday was my first day of work, orientation day at the new Amazon fulfillment center in Haslet, TX, near Fort Worth. Actually this facility isn’t new per-say, but it is new to the CamperForce program this year. As always with my Amazon coverage, I’m going to focus on what’s different this fall from previous falls.…
