Let's see, where do I begin? Currently it is Monday, and my next day of work is Wednesday. It is also the first day that customers will be in the lodge, and everything will (finally) be open. I still have not been trained on how to do any auditing, in fact that auditor won't be in until Thursday to show me what to do. I guess I'm going to be setting up my office on Wednesday, and helping Katie make welcome packets for Thursday's guests.

I did get rid of my roomate problem, after a few missteps. The first time I got reassigned I was put into a room that was already full, but the second time I got a room to myself. I currently live in fear of coming home to find a roommate has moved in, but I'm crossing my fingers that the HR woman will remember that I had to ask her twice to move me, and will leave me in peace. Either way, it's nice to be back in a bed again, instead of sleeping in the laundry room.

I'm still trying to get a feel for my coworkers. Some of them are not going to make it, if I'm any judge. One in particular is only here to play around, and I'm honestly afraid he's going to get someone hurt (he wants to be the guy who directs the buses on where to park) due to his inattention. Luckily he's already screwed a few things up, so I'm hoping he'll be gone shortly.

Another guy has already told me he's going to quit, and to be honest I hope he does it soon. I get this really creepy vibe from him, and he's more than happy to tell you about how fucked up he is in his head. I'm torn between feeling bad for him, and fearing that he'll snap and kill us all in our sleep.

Last weekend we had to go on a mandatory orientation trip (the pictures from it are in my last update). We left from Healy on Friday at 7:00am, and then drove up to the McKinley lodge on the motorcoach (it's pretty much a tourbus). Then from McKinley we went to Anchorage and then on to Whittier, where all the Princess ships dock when they come to Alaska. After touring the port we got back on the coach and returned to McKinley around 8:30pm.

Saturday we left McKinley at 8:30am and proceeded up to the train depot, where we boarded the Denali Express train. We rode the train all the way down to Fairbanks, which took a good 8 hours or so (though I must say that the steak I got from the dining room was the best steak I've ever had). We finally got to the Fairbanks hotel around 8:30pm, making for another very long day.

Sunday we rode the coach back to Healy, which took us from 8:30am to 2pm. I didn't get alot of pictures on that ride, since I was so tired that I slept most of the way back.

Overall thinks are fairly decent. I usually manage to get at least one decent meal a day from the dining room, and I don't want to defenestrate MOST of my coworkers. The real test will be this week and next week, as we finally have to deal with the customers (and I have to deal with my coworkers mistakes).
