Hiya hive! (I get a thrill every time I say that! YIPPEE!)
You’re not aware of this, but I am not home right now!! I’m in Kalaupapa visiting Mr. BC!!! OMG, it’s been a long three months since he left to go back to Hawaii, but we finally made it.
You may be asking yourself: after seven years together, why the heck are you guys living more than 3,000 miles (and an entire ocean) apart!!? Well, it’s kind of a long story. So settle in and grab a beverage.
I’m going to do this in two parts, so **WARNING*** cliffhanger ahead! (I know, I am so mean! I personally hate cliffhangers! I have no patience.)
I think I already mentioned that Mr. BC is a park ranger. He used to work at a park in the Bay Area. He got hired in 2007 and after a year got promoted, and then he kind of got stuck in that role. He had mentioned to me years ago that the only way to really move up the ranks of the national park system was to work at different parks, changing jobs and seeking promotions along the way.
