This is a guest post from my dad, Grandpa Points. He and my mom are in their 60’s, are (mostly) retired, and are ticking off “bucket list” destinations quicker than they ever thought possible thanks to miles, points, and travel deals.
They have an intense love of this country, of its National Parks and treasures, and have no problem with a clean budget hotel room and an economy airline seat on a budget airline as long as it gets them where they want to be. A photographer by trade, his adventures are usually captured not just in his mind, but in his camera. He shares his thoughts and travels here from time to time, and I’m excited to share another one of their big adventures.
Imagine if you will, that Grandpa Points is appearing on the TV game show Jeopardy. Alex Trebec, the show’s host, says ” Grandpa Points, you have control of the board and you get the pick”. I respond, “Alex, I’ll take State Parks for a thousand.” Alex says, “Okay, and the answer is, according to a 2015 USA Today Reader’s Poll, this is the best state park in America”.
