The Search for the Lost Cabins

I’m gonna try to do something nice for my readers here: while I’m in Colorado I’ll be exploring the other cabin rentals I’ve been looking at to see how they’re situated and whether they may be worth booking in the future.  Should be a fun day trip for me, and provide some solid intel on the area (in this case, the sprinkling of towns and parks located west of Colorado Springs.)  If anyone ever needs some advice on awesome and cheap cabin rentals for this particular region, let me know.  I am more than happy to share what I learned… provided I am sufficiently bribed with cookies or Italian pastries.

    I would be VERY interested in this service…and completely capable of handling the pay schedule as you have outlined here as well!

      I just found a deal for a resort in Aspen, Colorado for $80 a night. Man that’s really tempting too. Although I think the cabin I’m staying in would be perfect for you plus a full boat of kids, and cheap enough too. There are also cabins rented out I think by the Christan conference center called Glen Eyries. They have Christian retreats all the time, and Colorado Springs, with its heavy evangelical population has tons of affordable getaway options for that sort of thing.

      Frank, GET THIS….My dad actually works for the Navigators, and Glen Eyrie Castle is his headquarters! Don’t tell my kids, but I put in an application a few months ago…nothing available right now, but the Lord knows when to open and close doors, right? We have stayed at the Glen several times, and as a kid I have been to Eagle Lake Camp for a summer as well! This last time we went to Colorado, (2 years ago), the kids and I had our first white water rafting trip! It was SO much fun…again, still envious that you are going.

      Application for a job you mean? It never even occurred to me to look into Glen Eyrie for possibilities. I’ve always been checking the feds instead because of their heavy presence in the area and my background in government work. Hmmmmmmmmmmmmm…….

      Here’s a link to the job postings right now…And of course, my dad has a little pull! ;-) http://www.navigators.org/us/serve

      Nice, I may check in from time to time to see if they ever need a new media/social media marketer similar to what Collective Bias does.

      Here’s a tip for you to consider: if your resume has enough extensive experience doing internet marketing and so on, consider applying for federal jobs under the title “public affairs specialist.” That’s their equivalence to the private sector marketer/PR specialist. Sometimes the job duties are more extensive, but they always sound fascinating.

      DUDE….I don’t want a job that is extensive!! That is for the man..I’m here to cook and clean. LOL

      SMH, every time a woman says she’ll cook and clean, a feminist fairy falls down and dies.
