You are about to get 1/2 your wish by the time you are eligible it will be $80 thanks to obama https://www.nps.gov/subjects/centennial/nps-centennial-act.htmWe (the geezers) should lobby for a senior citizen permit good for the rest of our lifetime. So much for after 50, half that after 60, etc. I'd pay $150 for a lifetime pass right now.
The guvmnit only charges $10 for a lifetime geezer park pass after 62.
EEK!You are about to get 1/2 your wish by the time you are eligible it will be $80 thanks to obama https://www.nps.gov/subjects/centennial/nps-centennial-act.htm
I look forward to being here to pay what ever they want when the time comes for many years to comeEEK!
It may be even more than $80 in a few years - the law says that the lifetime pass will cost whatever an annual pass currently costs.
Or if you have less than a year to live you can get an annual geezer pass for $20 that will last you a lifetime

Did the state send you an email reminder (like I received last year)?Well it’s that time of year again, just ordered mine for the next year of fun. Great Christmas gift to yourself, don’t get caught without one.

I got my reminder at 00:03 Friday morning - coincidentally while I was camping on State Trust Land! What are the odds . . .Yes, I did get the reminder e-mail.
I’m hoping that AmericaThe Beautiful pass will also send a reminder.
