Welcome to the new edition of The Countdown – February 2012

This month our location is the Shenandoah National Park in the hills of Virginia, an hour’s drive outside Washington DC, the US capital. The park is a beautiful place, and it has a comparatively large number of ways to enjoy it, from the Skyline Drive, one of the most scenic road trips in the world, to camping, to hiking (which includes part of the Appalachian trail) to fishing.

The real reason that this park is our location this month however, is its connection to this month’s slogan:

Won’t be stopped!

More on that in a moment; lets take a look at the music.

This month’s hero who links our location with our theme, is Roy Sullivan, a park ranger who worked at Shenandoah for some decades in the early history of the park. Things did not always go well for Roy. He is now known for the fact that he was (medically confirmed) struck by lightning no fewer than seven times during his work for the park service. While some of this is likely due to the hazards of working outdoors, unfortunately for Roy, he was also once struck driving a truck, and once inside the ranger cabin. The outside environment could not stop Roy however, and likewise The Countdown will not be stopped, as long as we are determined to continue!
