I'm on the "home stretch" at Amazon: one more week and as of today only 46 work hours left. Mandatory overtime was called several weeks ago (it's pretty much a blur) and I have been working between 55 and 57 hours a week. The camper numbers have significantly dropped during the past few weeks, so much so that the break room is half empty. Working 6:00 A.M. to 6:00 P.M. really is too much for many of us and there is definitely a lot of grumbling going on.
Joel gave in and left Amazon two weeks ago. His nephew Paul, took a turn for the worse and passed away on Friday, so Joel pulled the jacks up and hitched up and headed to Fresno yesterday to be with family. I pulled the Born Free out of storage (at Jeremy's house in Portola) and moved into Joel's space at the RV park so I could finish out my commitment at Amazon.
The plan is ( and it is always in jello) once I've finished with Amazon, to stick around for a few days and house sit/dog sit at Jeremy's house while Jeremy is in Washington D.C. visiting his brother Justin, and then head over to the coast to see Mom for a few days. I'll catch up with Joel at Organ Pipe Cactus National Monument for our volunteer stint in January.
Stay tuned and maybe next time there will be some pictures and something more interesting.
