One of the things in the U.S. that I’d most like to do is visit more of our National Parks.
To date I’ve only visited a handful of the main parks like Badlands in South Dakota, Mammoth Cave in Kentucky, the Everglades in Florida and the Virgin Islands snorkeling on St John. (I’ve also been to Grand Canyon West for the amazing Skywalk however it isn’t part of the NPS.)
(I used some of my free FREE Spirit miles from their 1,000,000,000 miles giveaway over the summer. Check out my post about Spirit’s State of the Hate Report and find out a little about the promo. If you didn’t claim your share of the miles, you can still do so- a link where to go is in the post.)
A few years back I received a free subscription to Outside Magazine.
I didn’t think it would be a magazine that I would enjoy but their articles happen to be really interesting. When the subscription ran out I didn’t renew but I still find great articles from them online and through their Twitter postings. I include one article from Outside just about every week in my weekend recap post.
Even though Kim & I don’t have any pets, we still love animals. Growing up, my family had a dog until I was around 7 or 8 years old. I know that pets can be a lot of work and I can’t say that I’d really want to have that kind of responsibility now.
However, over the years we’ve had many unforgettable animal experiences while traveling around the US and the world.
