A most excellent birthday weekend comes to an end, and although I know he's gonna HATE this, I want to thank Adam for making it so awesome. He detests everything I love, barely tolerates me, always looks grumpy when he's with me, complains that my presence every time I come visit is ruining his dating game, and occasionally breaks staircases at National Historic Sites. . . But he also plans birthday brunches, reluctantly accompanies me to a whole weekend of national parks in the freezing cold, carries my heavy bags around without me having to ask or remind him I have a cracked rib, and allows me to stay at his house for days and days and days. Point is, he's a pretty okay best friend to have and kind of the bomb.

The nice thing about Savannah being the literal end of the line...for the last 4 hours it's basically just us Savannahians, the Charleston folks, and the Amtrak employees. #kickbackandrelax #traintravel

Saw many friends, saw many parks. And in the case of my long-suffering best friend Adam, saw many parks WITH a friend. Successful birthday weekend trip! 🥂🌲 #FindYourPark #maryland #virginia #washingtondc #birthdayweekend #OptOutside #mlkweekend #parkrangerlife #alltheparks #explore #unlikelyhikers #diversifyoutdoors #educateyourself #travel #wanderlust #nationalparkjunkie

Last year I spent my birthday at the Grand Canyon for work; this year I got to hit 3 different parks in Virginia. I like this new tradition of parks on my birthday (working does not count haha). Here I am, having dragged Adam to my 144th park! #FindYourPark #virginia #princewilliamforestpark #nova #dc #explore #parkrangerlife #nationalpark #birthdayweekend #mlkday #OptOutside #unlikelyhikers #diversifyoutdoors

By both mine and my parents' figuring, Manassas was the first national park I ever visited, when I was 8 years old and we came from PA to visit family. All I could remember from that long ago visit was the Stonewall Jackson statue, and I'm pleased to see there Jackson still stands, still like a stone wall, just as I remember. And here I stand, a National Park Ranger having a melancholic moment. #FindYourPark #myfirstnationalpark #manassas #bullrun #virginia #OptOutside #parkrangerlife #birthdayweekend #seeamericafirst #goparks #nationalpark

Adam stuck this stupid Cleveland hat on me and I'm 97% sure it's penance for dragging him to 3 national parks today by using the "But it's my biiiiirthday" excuse. 😂 #clevelandsucks #pittsburghforever

Hey, remember what it was like to have a president who --even if you didn't like his policies--wasn't so unhinged that Hawaiians SPENT THIRTY-EIGHT MINUTES HONESTLY THINKING THEY WERE ABOUT TO DIE because our president seems to be hell bent on provoking unstable North Korea? I remember those days...it was called every other presidency ever. Can you honestly imagine how terrifying it must have been, to hear that missile alarm and honestly believe it could be real, thanks to our current leadership? Because it sounds horrifying. People were praying with their kids, huddled in the bathtub because they truly believed these were their last minutes on earth. People were speeding breakneck through red lights in a desperate attempt to get home to see their loved ones for the last time. This isn't a fucking game. This is our country now. Darth Cheeto is obsessed with the size of his buttons, bombs, hands...everything. He sounds like a child. A child with insecurity issues and nuclear capabilities.

Ah, the museum of everything I fear. (Well, not space PER SE, I LOVE astronomy, but the infinite nature of space freaks me the eff out. If the universe is everything but it's expanding, WHAT IS IT EXPANDING INTO?!) #smithsonian #airandspace #dc #washingtondc #birthdayweekend #weekendtrip #friends #birthday #fearofflying #educateyourself

I fear I've officially become a "fort person," if I've started holding my hands out yearningly to every fort I've never seen...either that, or a zombie. 🤔 . . . #FindYourPark #maryland #fortwashington #OptOutside #parkrangerlife #alltheparks #forts #concretejunkie #view #nationalpark
