Today, Station 85 had a visit from Scott Parkinson. Scott is on a year and a half journey to bike to all Federal Parks. He is doing this to raise awareness of our national parks and parks system as well as to raise money to continue to care for, and revitalize our national parks. Scott was passing through Milton on his way from Annapolis, Maryland to Lewes, Delaware, and needed a placed to use the restroom and refill his water bottles. We happily obliged. If anyone would like to follow Scott's journey, or donate to his worthy cause, visit or Parks.Pilgrimage on Instagram, or open your camera and launch the QR code in the photo section of this story. Tell Scott you heard about him here in Milton.
