Hopefully the title answers the questions I was asked from yesterday’s post on our workamping job here at the J. Strom Thurmond Army COE recreation area. The COE actually contracts out the bathroom maintenance to a cleaning service.
But not to worry, there are plenty of other jobs for us to participate in, except for the whole government shutdown thing. This morning we and all the other workampers met with the head ranger.
He told us we could stay, but we were not going to be allowed to work until further notice. Then he left because he was being furloughed.
Then later this evening word was being filtered around that now we were going to be able to start working. Since that came not officially, I think tomorrow we’ll be able to get some reliable info, one way or another.
In the mean time, the COE is really happy to have volunteers working here and the COE staff goes out of its way to ensure we’re well taken care of.
One thing they have here at the volunteer village is this unassuming building.
The building is the recreation hall for the volunteers. One of the first things I noticed was this on the side of the building.
It is the antennas for the blazing fast free WiFi for the volunteer village.
Inside the rec hall is some very comfy furniture, a fireplace and satellite TV.
At first we wondered why there was this gym equipment here, but after two pot luck dinners in two nights, the reason has become clear.
Along with large tables for eating and game playing, it has a full kitchen for the volunteer’s use.
Also, a nice laundry room with free washers and dryers,
as well as a bathroom complete with a nice large shower.
Okay, this is the one bathroom we’ll pitch in to help keep clean. ;c)
We’ll see what tomorrow brings and if we can start “earning our keep”.
