We’re officially 18 days away from our mock run of the mobile experience. Every day I see more unfamiliar faces walk into the warehouse to work on sanding, mudding, painting, drilling, and hammering. Two trailers is a lot of work. And it’s a lot more to tell the stories well. Because we do no one justice if we don’t tell the stories of our Compassion kids to their fullest potential.
Myself (Rachel) and two other girls were re-located from various places to Kentucky. We’re based here for another 18 days until we launch with the tour. We’re going to be on the road for the next two years bringing the story to you. We want you to walk through a life that goes from poverty to hope. I can’t tell you how amazing these stories are.
My goal is to post some pictures and videos of the behind the scenes work on the trailers. It’ll take a little bit of time to get everything going but hopefully you’ll see some of the fun we’ve had doing physical labor :).
We’re based in a hotel in Owensboro, KY which is about 30 some miles from Central City, KY where the trailers are being built. Now I’ve always loved staying in hotels but living in one has been a bit different. And live in hotels we’re doing / will be doing. I’ve decided to list some of my favorite and not so favorite things about living in a hotel.
- Your bed gets made every day! New soap! Fresh coffee cups!
- I don’t have to dust, vacuum, or clean the toilet.
- If you lock yourself out of your room, you can just take the elevator to get a new key.
- There’s an elevator!
- Free gym with a pool!
- Free coffee that I don’t have to fumble around in the dark to get brewing.
- Always someone on call if you have a problem.
Not so Favorite
- One washer and one dryer for about 300 people.
- Using quarters for said washer and dryer.
- No microwave. No pantry. No stove. Do you know how hard it is to make bacon without a microwave?
- Your next door neighbors aren’t always quiet…
- You eat at restaurants for every meal.
- Uhhhh bed bugs anyone?
So I’d have to say it’s a wash on the good and bad. What about you? What are some of your favorite or not so favorite things about staying in a hotel?
