coachmac9 Posted January 2, 2016 Report Share Posted January 2, 2016 We got "the" call right before Christmas that we had gotten a park host job at Atlanta State Park and wanted us to start Jan 4 if possible. It was exactly what we wanted and had already talked to them about working our hours at the park around my coaching job and they had no problem with it. We took the RV out to the park right after Christmas and then went to our daughter's house in Ok City for New Years Eve and then the excitement started...the Park Ranger called and asked if we could come back Sat because of flooding and the road to our RV "might" be flooded. No problem...then about 30 min later he calls back and after apologizing profusely asks if there is any way we can come back immediately!!!! Seems that the Corp of Engineers decided to close two of the gates at the dam and the water was rising MUCH faster that expected!!! Again, no problem, we hit the road and drove the 5 hours back and rescued our RV!!! And sure enough, the water was at the edge of the road that leads to our RV last night. It wasn't in any danger of flooding the RV because the spots sit up on a hill but we would have had to paddle to and from it!!! LOLOL!!! So now we are safe and sound in another area of the park watching the water rise and not much to do...the park will be closed for a minimum of two weeks!!! What a great introduction to our new lifestyle!!!! I love it already!!!! Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
