Hope everyone is doing good and enjoying themselves at their parks. So far I have been extremely busy at Catoctin, and after a month I’m finally posting my first blog. I arrived here on Saturday, May 12th before all of the craziness started for the G8 Summit. My first day of work was the 14th, and I was with maintenance helping to set up and prepare for the G8. We moved a lot of picnic tables to the area where the media would be staying so that they could have places to sit when eating. We had press from all around the world here, including Russia, Japan, Italy, Germany, and so on. I worked with maintenance for my first three days to help prepare for the G8. Once the park became closed to the public I began working 6am-6pm helping to park all of the cars from the media, heads of state and other people involved with the G8. During this time I was able to spend a lot of time with the Secret Service, Park Police, and Rangers from many different parks. These people were from all of the US, and had a lot of different backgrounds. A lot of them had really interesting stories and gave me good advice for my future.
