In my quest to become a knowledgeable and prepared Park Ranger, I’ve been doing A LOT research. On my mission to learn how to best ‘blend in’ with the locals, I received a little help from a very cool group of guys. They happen to have a headlining show here in Las Vegas. It’s no big deal. ;)

    Impressive! You take a fellow blogger to the show and then get the cast to help and support you. See. This is why you deserve the job. Your people skills are amazing!

    PS: So jealous of your hat on top of it all.

      Hahaha! I wish I could say this was all part of the grand plan, but I’m just so thankful that it all worked out this way. Have to take the opportunities as they come, right? And as always, thank you for your confidence and support. =)

      And thanks! I got that hat a few years back for riding. Who knew it could have multiple purposes? =)

    Oh my goodness…Thunder From Down Under…I die. I’d say that endorsement alone should seal the deal for you! Australia is beyond amazing- you’ll love it!

      Haha! They are incredibly nice guys. I was very thankful and grateful they were willing to help a gal out!

      And thank you! Fingers crossed! They’re announcing in a week who the final three contestants are. Would LOVE it if you would stop by their Facebook page and tell them you’re on #teamHilary!
