Sorry for going AWOL, but after the May long weekend, I was basically exhausted, & every time I remembered to post something here, I ended up forgetting, or got started doing something else & then remembered after I had shut down my PC for the night.
I’ve tried posts before from my phone, but the PC is honestly a lot easier.
Anyways, May long went well, other then the fact for the first time in a while, the water wasn’t turned on yet, because of the frost still in the ground in some sections, but the section we were in was thawed completely, but they basically refused to turn the water on until all sections could have their water turned on, because it “wouldn’t be fair to all in the park”. While I do understand that, I also remember that in the past years, before I started doing security with a friend, whether it was fair or not never mattered. They turned on the water for the areas that were thawed, & if a spot wasn’t thawed, they left that water off until it was thawed.
Definitely not as hectic as 2017, when there was a storm, that ended up making us leave the park & come home for the night. We’ve had a few strong winds this week, & evidently from a Facebook post by the park director, trees did fall down, but nothing to major. No damage to any trailers this time, but based on the pictures, the same people from 2017 who had their trailer moved out of their lot, to allow a fair sized tree to be cut down (had fell over in the storm winds in 2017), had a smaller tree land on their trailer, so their trailer will possibly have to be removed from the lot again to safely remove either just the part of the tree that fell, or the entire tree altogether.
On a positive note, 2017 May long, there was a tree in front of our trailer, that we’re positive if it ever got uprooted, it would take the roof over our trailer with it due to where its roots are. Well, when we opened our trailer one day before I went out, the chainsaw was brought along to cut it down ourselves, & during the process, dad noticed that tree had already been removed, so thank you goes to the park for doing that.
Anyways, on other notes, my birthday was June 7/2018. Didn’t get many things, but being 22, I got some DVDs, Amazon gift card, & a prepaid credit gift card as well, so it allows me to get what I would like.
On a slightly less positive note, my friend & brother (not blood related in any way, but you’d swear we are), will be leaving for school elsewhere for at least 2 years, on June 27, so sadly we won’t be doing security at all on Canada Day weekend, but to my understanding he will be returning sometime before August long weekend, to gather the rest of his belongings, & to come work the music festival out at the park that weekend, & then on August 26 (I think) he will head back, where he will stay for 2 years at least. At this time he doesn’t know when or if he will be returning after the 2 years. But, a while back it was mentioned that if I still have the trailer at the park next year & depending on how he is doing financially, he may come out just for working the same music festival next year, if it will be happening again, which even though it’s over a year away, I’m safely assuming it will be.
On the festival note, since last year was the first year for it, they have learned a few things, & per one of their Facebook posts, festival volunteers will receive complimentary camping passes (if needed), complimentary festival/ concert area access (obviously), t-shirts & meal vouchers this year, which is definitely better then last year (no t-shirts or meal vouchers at all), but honestly, I will only believe the t-shirt & meal voucher parts when I see it for myself (no disrespect intended).
Anyways, I don’t know if you still read my blog since I started it, but, while I’m not that happy that you will be leaving, I honestly wish you the best in your chosen field at school & with your news company, & do hope you will return here after the 2 years. Hopefully at some point, if you’ve found people to cover the news area here, I will have things setup in such a way, that I can possibly join & contribute to the company as well, & do my best to cover stories out in the areas around me.
Anyways, that’s all for now at 11:10 PM… Until next time… 😛
