A Note on Early Season Arrival / Late Season Departure

Some research teams need to arrive in Gothic early in the summer before all systems are up and running smoothly. Others need to stay late into the fall, long after the summer water is turned off and most staff have left. Those who arrive early or depart late will find irregular mail delivery, infrequent trash service, no water, and other less-than-ideal situations. The extreme seasonality of our operations due to climate necessitates these difficulties. We try to minimize them as much as possible, but you need to recognize that life in Gothic in April, May, September, or October is very different than in the summer.
