Lemons, oranges, limes and grapefruit fill the trees all throughout the park. They encourage you to pick the fruit and enjoy it. Otherwise much is wasted as the trees are literally full of fruit right now.
I bought a juicer a few weeks ago and now we have fresh orange juice and lemonade every day. One of our many perks here at the Tucson KOA.
As for the job? Well, we are so far enjoying the change. We both enjoy cooking and working in the restaurant, and our new coworkers are great to work with. The cafe that we work in sells mainly bar food such as hamburgers, chicken strips, quesadillas, pizza and wings.
We come home every evening smelling of burgers and grease. The dogs think we smell amazing! LOL!
We also have been handling the ice cream social on Sundays, and the free bagel and coffee breakfast on Wednesday mornings.
Unfortunately, the cafe is in the middle of being leased. This means that once the lease goes through, the campground will have to find something else for us to do. Such is the way of the work camper. Change is the rule rather than the exception. We will go with the flow.
I love to plan our next job about six months in advance, so we are currently looking at our summer gig. Our youngest daughter is due to have our first grandchild in May, so we are wanting to be in the Atlanta area for that. At the moment, things are up in the air.
Do we take a few months off? Do we get a local campground job in the Atlanta area? We are not sure yet. We are also batting around the idea of experiencing working at the beet farms in Minnesota in September, and following that up with seasonal work at Amazon afterwards.
The great thing about having wheels on your home is that you can totally go with the flow. It makes life very interesting!
Next week I’ll share a bit about Saguaro National Park so stay tuned!
