Moon National Park: Ralph First Offered To Alice PDF Print E-mail

Senior travelers who enjoy both moonlight and national parks may consider this insanely far-fetched idea for their ultimate bucket list. Proposed recently by two members of the U.S. House of Representatives is a national park on the Moon.

According to thehill.com, the plan would establish the site where Apollo missions alit in 1969 and on following Moon landings. Both Democrats, Donna Edwards of Maryland and Eddie Bernice Johnson of Texas, would have the government create what they’d call the Apollo Lunar Landing Sites National Historical Park.

Forget about hot dogs, boardwalks, surfing and beaches. The park would consist of various craft and other equipment used in the historic landings. Sort of like Gettysburg, with all the battle leftovers from Pickett’s Charge, Cemetery Ridge and Little Round Top.

There’s no mention of erecting a lunar (as in lunatic)  pioneer statue on the moon of the battling Ralph and Alice Kramden, nor a memorial to the embattled taxpayers who’d have to pay for it all.
