I sang in the 3rd grade, so I have that going for me.

I actually think this is sweet. Don’t ruin it for me and tell me he’s some sort of rabid Tea Partier! (Which I doubt, because then he’d be singing “God Bless America” instead.)

Which is nice

That was neat. Sadly, all the national parks I’ve visited have seemed rather run-down and underfunded (as contrasted with state parks).

Isle Royale’s probably my favorite just because the remoteness makes it seem less abused, but I’d probably rather be at Porcupine Mountains or Estivant Pines (or any of the other umpteen squillion protected areas in Copper Country).
