Happy ‘Merica Day

The flag wouldn't fit in the car so I had to use a photo from last year!

In honor of the 4th of July, here’s my four current favorite things about this great nation.

4. America’s Beer Selection. Let’s face it, when it comes to amazingly hoppy beers, we just crush it. (Except you, Utah. Fix your silly 4% rule.)

3. The US is going after FIFA and Sepp Blatter. Yes, I got most of my news on this topic from John Oliver and Deadspin, and No, I do not understand the gory details, but I have really, really high hopes that the US investigation will improve world soccer and maybe even get the Cup out of Qatar in 2022.

2. Obamacare. I am not sure how Adam and I would ever get a reasonably priced health care plan for our travels without this legislation. It’s great the US is finally catching up to the rest of the developed world.

1. National Parks! In our travels, we have had amazing experiences so far with 11 parks in 5 states. Each park is different and has its own magic. I hope Adam and I will be able to return to these parks and activities again in our old age and enjoy them all over again.

Happy 4th of July, everyone!

  1. Had to wonder exactly what you meant by “old age” and hope that Scotty and I are still spry enough to take a few pages from your wanderingogres play book. Love the details! xo
