I’m a Cut Up

In summer volunteer on 01/07/2017 at 14:00

Well I’m doing my roll here at Springhill Camps. First few weeks have been great. There  were some temporary unpleasant experiences like living in a tent thru driving rain and high winds. That was week one. More were on the way.  The first blast was like trying to sleep with one of those mist machines blowing around in your room. Water just misting it’s way thru the tent fabric. The solution was to put a heavy tarp under the rain fly and spray the living hell out of the rest of the tent with silicone. I also used every boat line trick to secure the tent so that every gust was not the beginning of a lord I promise to change prayer.

So my job has been cutting things up. I’m making 40 pounds of chicken salad by hand,slicing up a bushel of cucumbers or a case of onions. The kitchen work is harder this year because they are short staffed. I do like it because the company is great.

When I’m not cutting veggies or poultry I am cutting firewood or a bilzillion acres of grass. I got some great tools for yard work however and there is nothing like a boy and his toys.

Well so it goes. I will be heading down to see my sister this week and then back up to the gypsy camp.

So to all of you around the country and all the ships at sea this is Dr Brad standing by on 16.
