Hi Samat,

Sorry, you must have misread my intent.
I totally agree that hiking the park is not only 'better' buy more fun,
especially for a PotW.
I have just put so many topics in to one email.
I do think some things are 'necessary' to import. Like Park boundaries,
though there is always discussion on the accuracy and how 'good' those are
too. Hrm :-/

I would love for National Parks week to be a "hands on, hike with your
GPS, take your kid/boyscout/girlscout out and explore event'. Who can help
