You will arrive in and meet up with your driver as listed in your coming itinerary if selected for a spot.


Daily operations


After a provided breakfast, we will depart in work clothes to the job site at snake corrals inside the south entrance of the park. PPE is provided but some like to bring their own favorite pair of gloves. The day will basically entail an operational briefing in the morning for constructing steel pipe fencing using welders, plasma cutters and angle grinders and moving materials with skid steers, loaders, and trailers. We will break for lunch and continue until the afternoon. Every day we will breakdown the job site and re-assemble the tools and equipment into the staging area and proceed to the lodge and get ready for a group dinner.


There will also be time set aside for those wanting to see the park, we will provide a driver and vehicle for those who wish to see the park and its attractions for a day. These include driving through the interior and stopping at attractions like old faithful, Yellowstone Lake, and many others as well as fishing opportunities.
