Sometimes I get customers at my checkout line who think working at Yellowstone National Park must be about the neatest thing ever, but sometimes their comments are at the other end of the spectrum – how sad it must be to live in a park but have to work all the time.
The truth is somewhere in the middle. Given the choice I wouldn’t work full-time while I travel, but it’s so much better than working full-time while living in an apartment like I use to. There’s no way I could afford even a month inside a national park if I wasn’t working there given how expensive the campgrounds are, so for me the pros outweigh the cons. Those of us who spend a whole summer in a park will get to know it in a way that vacationers never will.
And one really great thing about my current employer, it’s not full-time. It’s a 30 hour week, and you’d be surprised how much of a difference those ten extra hours a week make.
