The Ultimate Winter Job
Hopefully you have a job you enjoy as much as Steve Fuller enjoys being the Winter Caretaker of Yellowstone National Park. A few weeks back CBS Sunday morning featured this hard working man and what he does to keep the park maintained during the long winter that starts settling in the first week of November.
I don't know about you but I have had a lot of jobs in my lifetime. Hostess at McDonalds, cafeteria silverware keeper, advertising sales rep for Horse Show Magazine, even storyteller at Headless Horseman just to name a few. I have to say I don't think I ever had a job I did like. You have to enjoy your work or else life will be dull and work will be unbearable.
After seeing Steve Fuller's story I think I might have likes to do his job at least one winter. I really like the Van with the traction tires that turns it into a cool winter form of transportation. Not to mention he gets to ride around on a snowmobile for 4 months. It might be a bit quiet but the nature part of the job would be unbelievable. So will I apply for the gig if Steve retires? Let's say I'd love to, but I am not qualified. I am not sure how I could get all the snow off the roof being it is as deep as I am tall.
