Hard to believe that it was six years ago that I stepped out on a limb and took a seasonal job never dreaming where it would lead me. My dream as a youngster was to visit one of the National Parks and have a family vacation like what you saw on the TV. Unfortunately, that was not to be with my mom. She died before she ever got a chance to visit me when I lived in one too. During these past six years, I did manage to live in three National Parks and even did a stint on the Mississippi River on a steamboat, and have lived in two National Wildlife Refuges since. Without that first step, I would still be sitting somewhere in San Antonio wondering why my life was so boring.
It was well worth the effort of getting out of my comfort zone - so what I'm saying here is - if you are questioning yourself whether or not you should do this - do it. You only get one chance in life and when you come home with your photos, folks won't believe you when you tell them that a grizzly was grazing on grass in your front yard or that you ran into a moose in the dark. Just don't go snipe hunting no matter what.
Have fun and I look forward to seeing what each of you write after the season is over.
