In less than a month we will be taking Tiger II (our RV) out of winter storage and heading up to Ridgway State Park in Ridgway, Colorado. We are going to be camp hosts for the summer!
We have been talking about being camp hosts for a couple of years. We became more serious about the idea while we were in Texas last year. We talked with rangers and camp hosts at several Texas State Parks. The more we talked the more it sounded like fun and something we should try. When we got home to Colorado, we went on line to the Colorado State Park Volunteer site. We picked several parks where we thought we would enjoy volunteering and submitted our application and resume. In mid-December, the head Ranger at Ridgway State Park called us and after the interview process, we learned we had been selected to be camp hosts.
Several of our RVing friends are planning trips to Ridgway to camp and visit. Our grandchildren will also be coming up to camp and to spend time with us in Tiger II.
This is our first camp host experience and we really don’t know what to expect. Yet, we are excited about having the opportunity to volunteer at one of our amazing State Parks.
