Thanksgiving and Traveling to Williamsburg, NM

This Thanksgiving we sure had a lot for which to be thankful.  Our rig is fixed, we have our first three month workamping position, our families are healthy and well, and we were able to enjoy a wonderful feast with wonderful people at Dream Catcher Escapee Park.
Eating a communal dinner like this is really fun. No one is there who doesn't want to be. Most people don't know anyone else before arriving. So everyone is eager to chat and make new friends, to hear about your story and to share theirs. The park cooked several turkeys and there was plenty for everyone, with delicious homemade gravy. Plus every couple made a dish, and Escapees are really good cooks!  Even the rainy weather didn't dampen our spirits.

On Friday morning we pulled in the slides and headed north to Williamsburg, about 90 minutes away. The skies were gray but the vistas were pretty. 
We were met by Tom and Joe, who live at Desert Haven. They helped to get us situated into our spot. We have a fabulous view of the mountains on the other side of the valley, and I will be posting photos when I get some good ones. We will be starting our job on Monday, so we have a little time to run errands and relax over the weekend. The Wifi is great here and we get good TV reception with our antenna. We are looking forward to our new duties. I think it's really going to work out!
