14th July 2013 Tregurrian CCC

We are having a great time working here this season.  Not to say it doesn’t come with challenges but we’re having such good fun!  The weather has been really kind to us, which in turn makes the campers happy.

For the most part the site runs smoothly.  The only hiccup is occasionally the computer system and the odd camper!  No, we don’t mean all campers are odd, but anyone who is ‘customer facing’ will know what we mean. Having said that, we all become a ‘customer’ at some point and no doubt we’re a challenge sometimes…Dean!

The site has been full for the last couple of weeks and it makes it easier to run, plus we’re up to scratch on how everything works and our fitness levels are really good now.  Dean has lost nearly a stone in weight and looks great.

Today is pure relaxation and began with a fried breakfast cooked on the barbecue, sat outside with coffee and orange juice.  Five hours later and we’re still in the same position!  Dean is giving our bicycles a thorough clean and tomorrow we’re off to Truro to get some parts for them.

Life is good!

About Dean

Angela and I decided that there was more to life than working hard to keep up the payments on the mortgage, to pay the gas, electric, phone bills etc. etc. SO............ In 2008 we sold our house, I initially took a year off (Unpaid) and Angela handed in her notice! We bought a motorhome and set off for a year of travelling! This was the best thing we had done in our lives (Apart from getting married) and we have no regrets. During the year I managed to secure a redundancy package which felt very strange. Almost sad as I had worked for the same company for 19 years (BT). It was always our plan to have a whole year off before thinking about the 'W' word. We began applying to the Camping and Caravanning Club (CCC) for the position of Holiday site assistants in August 2009. After the interview, work experience and induction we were finally given a contract at the CCC site in Inverewe (Scotland). Our plan is to work through the summer in the UK then head to Europe to overwinter before coming back to work the following summer season. Hopefully these few words and our blog will inspire others to get off the hamsters wheel and see that there is more to live than having a house and material things. A cliche I know but this is not a rehearsal, life is too short!!! Since our first contract in Scotland we have worked a winter contract in Oxford (never again!) not Oxford but a winter contract. Hereford for two years, living in a yurt for one! And Cornwall. In between our working we have also travelled a bit. Hopefully this website will give you an insight into our alternative lifestyle. Get out there and live the dream!
