Leaving The National Park

In spite the very beautiful area of the National Park I have decided to pull the plug. And it’s got nothing to do with the area but everything with tourism. The hospitality industry is known to pay the lowest possible wages and if that pairs up with a low number of hours really worked and the fact that living costs tend to be astronomical then it doesn’t make much sense to keep it going. An additional problem I faced, was the need to constantly move  my trailer every 2 weeks as all public parks have a policy of not accepting seasonal residents. And the very few private parks are even more  expensive.  When I received a phone call from an Edmonton-based company offering work in and around the big city I really had no choice other than accepting the offer. It is part of Canada’s biggest bus company with thousands of buses around the country.

So today I left the National Park, and hopefully I will find suitable accommodations for my trailer. A promising appointment with a business owner in the city is scheduled for tomorrow, and I might end up being a property watch-dog in my spare time.

Meanwhile, I found “a home” at Wally World, at least for one night.
