My year of living rangerously, continues...



Here's some good news.

Those of you who have been following my personal saga over these years of living rangerously will be happy to know that two months ago my appointment with the NPS has changed. I'm now on the STEP program, that is; Student Temporary Employment Program. This program will keep me employed year-round as a Park Ranger at Antietam while I pursue my master's degree. No, it doesn't bring health benefits but it does provide me with steady employment in this outstanding organisation at this wonderful place for the next few years.

For this, I am grateful and very happy. And I thank all of you who have given me so much encouragement over the last two and a half years.

See you on the trail!

Mannie , Congrats. So good you will be there year round. Does this mean you don't have to sub anymore? Hopefully this will then lead to full time park ranger with all the bennies. This is such good news.

Congrats, Mannie! Also I hope you do not mind but I took the liberty of placing Earl Roulette into the "Find A Grave" website database along with photos and text from your blog.

Congratulations Mannie. I couldn't be happier for you. Now get back to the books.
