Daydreams for the future

Check this out:

Live & Play at the Canyon

We live along the South Rim of the Canyon at a 7000-foot elevation in the Ponderosa Pine forest. Most new employees will reside in dormitory style housing sharing a room with another employee. The dorm rent is $16 per week, which is deducted from the employee's paycheck. The employee meal plan is a pay-as-you-go system. We have an Employee Cafeteria, which offers a set menu, plus daily specials which include vegetarian specials. Meals are sold at near cost in the "E-Caf." A 50% discount off the menu price is extended to employees in our public cafeterias. A minimal amount of cooking is allowed in the dormitory housing. Grand Canyon has basic services available such as shopping, banking, post office, medical clinic, church services and a community library.

In about 3 years, I would love to sell everything, ala Reece Robbins' style, and go work for this company that runs all the lodges at the Grand Canyon and operates the mule train rides down to the bottom of the canyon. My ultimate dream job would be to work in the mule stables, grooming and catering to a herd of mules, but I would be happy to just be a housekeeper in one of the beautiful nationally registered historic resort lodges, some of which were built in the 1930's - a style I love!!! And it would be cool to live in the employee housing - hardly no bills to worry about or anything to take care or maintain - just doing your job everyday in the Grand Canyon!!!!!
