    The adventure begins again - Patroling at a new resort

    Last week I accepted a job for the upcoming winter at Megeve! Probably as different a resort as possible from last winter at La Romme, but just the oposite side of the same mountain, les Aravis.
    This winter I will not be a lifty, a mechanic, an electrician. I will be a full time patroler and part time info post.
    My mornings will start earlier and my days will finish later, but the drive will be shorter.
    I will have to ski many runs to open them and at the end of day close them. Many more signs to put up and take down.
    I will probably have to do more than 5 rescues in a season, wont be surprised if I end up doing more than 5 a week.
    Lunch is provided and if I'm not to busy I get an hour to eat it. No more packed lunch on the go!
    There will be co workers and Colleagues to learn from, not make it up as I go along.
    There are procedures, plans and preparednes, not just thrown the keys and told best of luck.
    New uniform of many parts not just a used Jacket with a name on it.
    Why did I get the job, they wanted an experienced person with real English skils (They only have one other real english speaker on the whole operations staff). As a bonus I'm happy to do high wire rescue (aparently the majority of staff are terrified of it?)
    Am I looking forward to it, hell yes. Any terpedation, yup they grilled me for 10 min about where my rugby loyalties lie....and I don't even have a telly!

    Great news T!
    Megeve is sort of a fancy spot, eh? As I fail, maybe I'll stop by to cruise the groom.

    Man, if I only had to lie about team allegiances during my years of employment interviews I'd be pretty happy.

    I have been following your life for almost 20 years. I am so psyched for you.

    Do you feel that you are happy, now, right now?
