For those of you who don't know, I will be working in Katmai National Park in Alaska this summer as an Interpretive Park Ranger. Thanks for coming to my blog, I am going to try to keep it updated pretty frequently. Some posts will be diary-type stories of what is going on with me, and many posts will be more educational narratives where I try to share all of the fascinating things I am learning with the rest of you.
A couple rules: first of all, if you do come here and read something, please comment. I do not have phone access, so the only way I can communicate with people back home is through the internet. So please take the time to leave a comment even if it is only "cool I read this" or "that was lame ginger". You don't even have to create an account with the site just remember to put your name at the end if you don't. Most importantly, I would love to answer any questions you have so please ask me anything and everything that comes to your mind when reading. That way I will know someone is actually reading this and be encouraged to keep writing. The second rule is keep it clean, we might have some kids reading this so if you want to get wild hit me up at myspace (which I can't access until next week).
My first post will be a somewhat saucy account of my feelings about arriving in Alaska, but if you're not sure what is going on don't worry; my next post will be general information about where I am (Katmai National Park), what I am going to be doing and why it is so cool.
