Jamie came by 8 a.m. and told us we had a gate and needed to be there in an hour and it takes 30 minutes to get there. We were ready to head out at 8:26 a.m. We were here 8 days from the time our paperwork was approved before we got our first gate.
We are about 10 miles outside of Whitsett. Very busy gate. Received about 30 minutes of information from the previous gate guards and they left; the husband needs knee surgery bad - really had trouble walking around.
So it was baptism by fire as we were working the gate within a few minutes of arriving while Jim and the husband moved rigs out and us in. Jim did the setting up of our rig while the service guy hooked us up to the generator, water and sewer and I stood and worked the gate. Oh, yes, this is an actual gate that has to be opened and closed each time a vehicle approaches either coming in or going out. It’s a big 12-15 foot gate. Luckily it swings open easily, but it is about 20-25 feet from our rig so there will be a lot of sitting outside and walking involved. Either that our a lot of in and out the rig and up and down stairs. We’ll get in shape.
Our Verizon internet and phone signal is very poor. I have to drive a few miles closer to town to get anything. Sooooo, our blog posts and facebook posts will be sporadic at best. I’ll keep up as best I can, but this is a very busy gate with a lot going on, so we’ll see how it goes.
Remember, you are loved.
