Mystery Monday: Adding New Attractions

Remember how a couple of weeks ago I mentioned that Utah was missing state parks and that Sandy was researching them? Well, when I sat down this weekend to ADD them to the database, I found a whole bunch of OTHER attractions that were done but not loaded.

Oh no!

So, over the next week or so, be on the lookout for the following:

Cabins & Yurts in Montana (79)
Rentable lookout towers in Montana (13)
Charles M. Russell National Wildlife Refuge & related attractions (21)
Texas State Historic Parks (80)
Grand Teton National Park in Wyoming (8)
Utah State Parks (137)

So, I thought I had 137 attractions to add and ended up with 338!

Guess I have my work cut out for me! But keep checking back to see these new attractions.

Well that’s what happened to me about two weeks ago.

I’m always so proud of being a one-stop website for all your public land needs: National Forest Service, State Parks, National Parks, Campgrounds, Lakes, etc.

And then… There’s Utah.


For some reason unknown to me, poor Utah got loaded to the database AND live to the website without a single, solitary, lonely state park. Oh dear. Well, I didn’t realize this until, like I said, about two weeks ago.

Now, Sandy & I are taking steps to fix it. So, in a few days, I’ll start adding state park information to poor lonely Utah.

Wish us luck!



Who’s Sandy? She’s working this summer at ESP Boss’ tax office doing some accounting work. But she’s in between projects at the moment so she’s helping me out with some work. Yeah for Sandy!

Site-Wide Updates Coming Soon!

In case you tried to access my blog(s) last week, you’ll have discovered that they were up and down and working and broken all week.

Okay, so they were mostly DOWN and BROKEN, but I’m trying to spin it!

After a TON of frustration, a 3 hour phone call to tech support, installing and uninstalling WordPress about a dozen times, we are FINALLY back up and running. Yeah! And while I wish that I hadn’t had to do it, at least it happened in early January instead of mid-March when I’d be so busy working in the tax office that I could hardly breathe!

I also wanted to take a moment and give you a run-down on some changes that will be heading your way for and the blogs:,,, &

What’s Been Changed So Far:

That updated look for is what I’m REALLY excited about. Sometime this week, you’ll get a sneak peak with some minor changes and then in the coming weeks…

Well, let’s just say that a visual overhaul has been a long time coming!

In other news, I just wanted to remind everybody that I work full-time in my dad’s tax practice. So from now until April 18th, I might be bit slow(er) at answering emails and getting posts up. But it’ll happen!
