The Boneyard at Lacey

I am sure you are asking what is "the boneyard?" The boneyard is what I called the campsite last week. Found out yesterday that where we park all the trailers, our motor home and the condo's in carnival language is called the boneyard.

Ron went around after everyone was in place and took a few pictures to show you what it looks like where we are going to be living for the next two weeks.





The top picture is Alice inside the motor home after we got to Lacey, WA. and before we are set up. Once we are set up the TV is between the two front chairs and the plant that is in the sink is on the counter.

In the second picture our motor home is parked between a condo and a trailer. At least in Lacey we are not parked on soggy wet grass. Being parked on black top the motor home should stay a little cleaner.

This picture shows all the rigs in a row. The open space between the two trailers is waiting for a late arrival of one of the trailers. That is where Diane's trailer will go. Her hubby, Eric, had to take it in and get the wiring fixed ~ they had the brakes as flashers and the flashers as brakes. Not a good thing while traveling.


The top picture is another view of the front of all the rigs lined up. The rig to the far right belongs to Rick & Theresa, our bosses. It is a very nice fifth wheel with three slide outs. They always park on the end. The next picture is a view from the back. The wide area between the two white lines is a bike path. Can you see the porta pottys to the far right? That's right folks, the bathrooms for those living in the condos. Makes me so happy to have my own private bathroom in our motor home. Oh the comforts of home.

Well I just wanted to show you where we are living for the next two weeks. I hope to have more pictures later in the week of where we work and what the views are from our ticket windows. Ron took some pictures with his phone last week and I downloaded them to the computer but can't figure out where they are at so I will have Ron take more pictures this week and try again to let you see where we actually work and what beautiful outfits we get to wear (that's a joke folks!).

Hope you enjoyed seeing where we live right now.

  1. Great to see photos even as word descriptions make it hard to actually picture you doing this, Alice! But now I know you really are! LOL, just kidding! Brings back many happy memories of our 'on the road days', living in our airstream trailer at Lake Havasu one winter, in Ephrata, Penn. and in downtown Austin, Texas under pecan trees that dropped pecans on us during a windstorm, up near Mt. Raineer (sp?) another winter (Eatonville, Wash) and in little Garden Farms, California before Jonathan was born! (when I was pregnant with him). That was next to the small community church and near a delightful creek and maple trees! Much nicer than next to the train tracks where trains whizzed through in the middle of the night! That was at an old dairy by Atascadero State Hospital! So many stories. I did keep journals but haven't ever looked at them since and don't know where they even are...lately, I'm finding a lot of old journals so they must be in them! Keep Writing Alice, Okay? Love ya, Roxine

  2. The photos were all very interesting. Thanks for showing them. Did you answer the question (and I missed it) on why you can't eat at Applebee's for shop at the stores where you are working? Curious.

    Love all the great info you give!

  3. That looks like a neat place to park. Boy, I wish I had pavement right now--lots of dirt from the yard comes in every time we go outside.

  4. Ha, found your blog wandering around looking for pictures of my old game to show people. I used to work for funtastic way back when in the games, for vince actually :D
    The reason why you are not allowed to go into malls or shopping plazas is plausible denial. The management can honestly say that employees are not allowed to go there that way. And yes, it is because of the bad rap of the fair/carnival. Even though funtastic doesn't deserve it. People will try to blame EVERYTHING that goes wrong on the 'carnies' if they are around...Good luck on your travels with them, I can honestly say that I look back being on the road with them and my extra large family as some of the most interesting and happy moments of my life.
