As most of you who follow the blog know we were lighthouse hosts last year on the OR coast and enjoyed it so much we are going to do the same job this year. If you like people, history and gorgeous coastal locations, then it’s an absolutely fabulous job and you get a free full hookup site in the State Park in return. Unfortunately some of the parks are short this summer due to last-minute cancellations and health issues. I got a call from the ranger at Cape Blanco who told me he has multiple openings. If any of these speak to you DO call Greg right away and let him know.
Cape Blanco Openings:
JUNE – 1 Lighthouse Host couple
JULY – Port Orford Lifeboat Station Museum opening
- 2 Lighthouse Host couple openings
- Junior Ranger opening (single or couple)
AUG – 1 Lighthouse Host couple
- Historic Hughes House Docent opening
CONTACT: Greg Ryder, firstname.lastname@example.org, 541-332-6774 ext. 5
I should add that Cape Blanco is one of the wildest, most gorgeous locations I know and as a lighthouse host you get a HUGE, lovely full hookup site separate from the main campground and only steps from the cliffs and panoramic views. The job requires around 15-17 hours/week and you get 3 days off. NO prior experience is required. If you want to see what our lives were like as lighthouse hosts read THIS POST, and if you have anymore questions feel free to ask or shoot an e-mail to Greg at his contact above.
As for us? We’ve been hanging out and “hiding out” in Portland this past week-end. There’s been a full day of sun which we spent visiting with an old friend, cleaning battery terminals and trouble-shooting a starting problem in our engine (turns out one of our starter batteries was bad), a full day of rain (which we spent inside) and a mixed day (which we spent walking downtown Portland and finished with the most amazing late Peruvian lunch at Andina Restaurant - WOW!!!). I was taking a mini-vacation from blogging so I have absolutely no pics to tempt you which means you’ll just have to take my word for it.
And next? Well, we’re hitting the coast BABY! We’re going to one of the places with the foggiest weather, the most dangerous coast and a heap full of crazy history. Oh and likely ZERO Verizon signal. Why would we do such a thing? Well, because we can and because it will undoubtedly be brilliant fun. Just don’t expect too many blog posts this coming week
