WASHINGTON — The way the work schedules go at Wild Sun, we get one day off a week. Which sounds bad until you know how our days work. A day is broken into 6 blocks of time, and volunteers typically are assigned for the first three, or last three blocks. Which means that a full work day is still only half the day. You either start at 6 am and are done by lunch at 1:30 pm, or start after lunch at 3 pm and work late into the evening (with two lengthy breaks in there too). That leaves quite a bit of free time to get other things done on work days.
Granted, the first week I’m at Wild Sun, I’m too exhausted from adjusting to the new situation to want to do much but relax when I’m not working.
Mainly, adjusting to the heat.
