Although its been fun and interesting leapfrogging each other trying to manage the motel in the first few months, finding a full-time manager has been a priority. As it turns out, finding someone excited to move out to West TX is not too hard, but finding the ideal folks to have run our motel is a taller order.
We are excited to introduce John and Kim! John reached out to us when he saw the position we had posted and we knew pretty quickly that this was the fit we were looking for.
John and Kim are originally from Colorado, but they have lived all over the US. John spent the better part of his career working in the construction industry while Kim raised their children. Over the last 10 years they have been living the RV lifestyle. For 6 years they were managing an RV park in Crystal City, TX (south of Uvalde). When the oil dried up, the park did too. They then moved up to Idaho to spend time with their daughter and grandkids. After spending a few years up North, they were ready to embark on their next adventure and that’s when John saw our job posting.
They started making the trek in mid-October and arrived in Sanderson on the 21st. Joe and I spent a couple of days showing them the ropes, introducing the town folks, and touring the town. Then we told them good luck and set them free!
Even if you are not staying at the Motel, stop in and say hi to them!
Welcome to Sanderson John and Kim!
