This blog is mostly a collection of my musings on recreation-related research (ecological and sociological) and topics. Occasionally my other interests will bleed through, so do not be surprised by posts related to baking, knitting, science fiction, or the adventures of my ridiculously destructive cat.
The blog name comes from a phrase often used in recreation research, interpretation, and visitor management: “the average visitor does not exist”. The statement is a reminder that visitors to parks and protected areas are diverse and generalizations about visitors can only be made with caution. This variety in visitors to public lands makes managing parks and protected areas difficult and an interesting topic of research.
