Good morning world! I worked my first half day yesterday at Dollar Tree. Four hours from 1 to 5 pm. Looks like this year its a 15 hour a week job. So in May I will go back to work part time at the Bunnery as well.http://bunnery.com/ Working two part time jobs to get as close to 40 hours as I can.
Thinking this morning in my dreams of going to live in south central Utah this next winter, down around the Grand Staircase,Escalante Canyon,Bryce Canyon and Zion National Parks area. Hard to decide what I want to do the following winter when I am not working the summer yet, but nowt that I am working and know what my income,rent,grocery costs and savings should be its easier to figure out my future.
If I work from now mid April to say mid October I should be able to save about $3000 after I get a new warm sleeping bag for winter camping and a some new outdoor clothing. Usually I buy second hand gear and clothing and in Jackson Hole there are plenty of second hand places to shop at.
I do plan to replace this laptop with a new one and get a new Canon camera and a couple lenses. Maybe a light pair of binoculars as well.
$3000 would be enough to easily live on for food and minor bike repair from late October to next April when I will return to work another summer in Jackson Hole. Or look for work in Bryce,Zion or the Grand Canyon next summer.
Pretty much I plan to work the summers as long as I can so I can put off retirement till I am in my late 60's if possible. Working just 6 months a year I do not feel as worn out or down and am able to be free the rest of the year Fall,Winter and Spring.
Anyway happy morning to you all!
