Okay!  How was the move?  Which critters did the move with you?  How are things at the park?  Are you at the light house or a different location?

Things are doing fine.

My RV had three things broken when I set up, a pipe, the toilet, and the LP regulator. It cost nearly $600 and several days of discomfort, phone calls, etc. to fix. I pretty much have no money until I get a paycheck.

I brought my two youngest male rats, Tulio and Miguel, with me. My parents plan to bring my cat Lily to me in a week or so. (She would have hated all the repair guys in and out.)

Right now, I'm working on a few sign/interpretive exhibit projects. I will be stationed at the new visitor center in Beaufort once it opens at the end of April. It's on the busiest street in a fairly bustling tourist town 30 minutes drive away. So, it will be a much different kind of job. -- Usually given to a higher grade employee. I'm still paid the GS 04 wage, but I look forward to having more duties and responsibilities. Plus, it will be a 40 hour work week with some Sunday pay, so I'm happy for that.

Must feel a bit like an adventure.

Sounds like they are evaluating you for more.
