chronicles of elephant camp...


hit the ground running here!!! I was not prepared for the workload... putting in 14-16 hr. days, 6 days per week. The heat has gotten to me once already.... 101 and 115 on the "feels like" index.... I was at the top of a hay stack throwing hay!! The elephants are amazing!!! I've been enjoying watching the babies (some babies.... 5-6 feet tall and about a ton!) I can honestly say I KNOW MY SHIT!!!! have shoveled about a ton(literally!!!!) of it per day. Keeping up with 13 elephants has been quite the trip. I think I've dropped about 5 lbs my first week just in sweat! My eating habits suck, that's for sure.... too hot to eat in the eve (not to mention way too tired to try to cook anything), I am NOT a breakfast eater...tried, but just wasn't agreeing with me, and lunch is what ever we can grab on the fly. We are allotted an hour for lunch, but all of us always manage to find something to do..... imagine that, eh? Have to go for now, but will write more when I can........E.
p.s.- will add photos when I can....
