Goal: For mother/daughter writer, publisher, talk radio and videographer team, Nancy J. Reid and Lisa D. Smith, to document by radio, article, slide show and video, their visit to each of our 413 National Park Units, as well as the park area gateway communities and destinations. As they travel along with their mascot ‘Priscilla the Pink Sock Monkey’, Nancy and Lisa post articles, videos, slide shows and interviews in this National Park Travel Planner, focusing on their various experiences at park area activities, attractions, lodging and dining establishments, shops and services, towns and visitor centers. Steadily growing with content as they travel, this National Park Travel Planner is here to make it easy for you to plan your next National Park visit and vacation.

Reason: To promote the full funding and protection of our National Parks and other public lands and programs, as well as to further tourism as a viable industry to the gateway communities by offering Tourism & Internet Marketing Seminars, using the 8 Keys of Excellence as a dialog platform.
