So far I have only completed two weeks of work here on the Chico, however in that time I have learned a lot. That first week was a crash course in everything that you could think of when it comes to ranch life. Growing up, I had been around ranching but nothing as intensive as this. I learned the location of everything on the ranch, what my duties were, and much more. Getting acquainted with my surroundings and the people that I work with has been so easy due to the sincerity and friendliness of everyone. If I had a question, it was answered. Everyone was so nice, really seemed to care about me, and was interested to know more about me. I feel at home in my short time here. Each day blows by, because I thoroughly enjoy what I am doing. Looking at the rest of my time here, I cannot even imagine what all else I am bound to learn and the experiences that I will have.
