Graduation Day (Pisgah Forest, NC)

We completed our training today! Tomorrow we begin our volunteering. There are 7 different positions that are worked by the volunteers. We rotate through these positions, working one each day we are scheduled to volunteer. We work 4 days one week and 3 the next. I think it’s fair to say that none of us are confident that we know all aspects of our jobs. But we do feel confident that our team leaders will be there to help us. They have gone to great lengths to assure us that we will receive endless support. I’m feeling good.
Tomorrow we’re also moving our camper to the Cradle. As stated previously, that may be challenging but mostly I’m convinced we’ll be fine. We’ll depart about 6:30am to avoid traffic. Our new friends and fellow volunteers, Mike and Debbie, have gone above and beyond the call of duty. In our first conversation of the first day we met Mike and Debbie they offered us the use of their second vehicle as a chase vehicle and walkie talkies. Mike even offered to come get me and our camper with his larger truck if I had any problems. He’s a retired sheriff’s deputy. Mike and Debbie are good people. We appreciate their kindness!

After we move our camper we will report to work. Debbie will be working in the gift shop and I’ll be at the front desk.
See ya at the Cradle.
