Last week, Jennifer McClure joined the Jody Maberry Show to talk about developing a signature story.
This week, Jennifer asks me 3 questions.
The week after there is a guest on the show, they ask me three questions about anything. Business, life, parks…anything. I don’t prompt them in any way.
Here are the 3 questions from Jennifer McClure, with short answers. Listen to the entire episode to hear the whole story.
What have I revealed about myself during my 10,000 steps per day walking streak?
So far, after over 800 days, I have learned plenty. I even did a podcast episode focused on the step steak. But if I had to pick one thing I have revealed about myself it would be this; If I can do this, what else can I do?
It has not been easy walking so many steps in a streak that stretches over 800 days. If I have it in me to accomplish this, what else can I accomplish? I look forward to finding out.
What is my fondest memory of being a park ranger?
Believe me, there are many. After being a park ranger for 8 years, I have enough fond memories to last a lifetime. But the best came during my first week as a park ranger.
Jack Hartt, the park manager and the person who hired me into parks, told me to spend time falling in love with the park before I worried about doing the work. That advice served me well as a park ranger and I still practice his advice today, no matter what I am doing.
What is my favorite National Park and why?
Not a fair question, but I will give an answer. For many reasons, my answer should be Yellowstone National Park. But for some reason, I can’t shake the thought that Glacier National Park is my favorite.
I have spent much time in the backcountry at Glacier and seen things that most people who visit Glacier never see. Glacier is a backcountry park. As beautiful and stunning as the park may seem from Going to the Sun Road, you haven’t seen the park until you walk into the wild.
