It’s all over!
Too much time spent waiting for not much fuss. Now the work begins.
I have to give kudos to the Forest Service Helpdesk; one phone call and a very nice lady took control of my machine and did almost the entire setup for me. My self-backups made it easy to bring my files across to the new user. And I appear not to have lost anything.
I can see one to two days of final organization — which really means only 3 or 4 hours of actually doing file organization — but being interrupted by everyone walking in the door. It’s tempting to take part of my long weekend and spend it in the office just so I can put that all behind me, and get on to newer and better things.
I’ve got my firstname.lastname@example.org address and I’ve been using it like crazy. All sorts of email inquiries I’ve been waiting to initiate are already in the ether and I hope I get some answers — but now I can arrange my own squeaking wheel campaign. 🙂
I also have to go back to 2 months worth of volunteer applications and let them all know to change their email records. I have a few new ones from this week that I need to make initial contact with, and now I can do it under my own name. I know that has been confusing to get an email from one name and find yourself talking to someone else. But that’s done now!
With the mild weather there’s more forward-looking work being done than catching-up on repairs. Without freezing temps nothing’s breaking! The rovers are out mowing and blowing, the campground caretakers are getting their areas cleaned up too. Hosts don’t have much to do yet — the campgrounds are virtually empty — to be expected at this time of year.
Well, not that all that ‘puter stuff is over let’s get on with volunteers and RV’ing and other fun stuff. I’m all wore out and I’m sure you are too. Thanks for stopping by and I’ll talk with you tomorrow.
