My apologies to all. The former researcher extraordinaire fell down on the job this one. It looks like we are talking anytime they decide to make the change between now and December (the park service refuses to commit, lol). Nevertheless, for the newly sixty and above, realize that it does that awhile for the application and if you are traveling, please do not wait. Onward and forward.
Happy Sunday everyone! It's almost twelve and I'm typing from bed after little sleep, thinking about grabbing a nibble and another nap. Either way, at a hundred degrees out this is an inside day for the next few hours.
Meanwhile this is a public service announcement. Some of you who have annual park tickets may have received this notice, and others may have read it. But since we are in that last half month before rate increase: Right now, seniors pay 10 dollars for an annual, go as often as you can park pass. A lifetime pass, I might add
Starting the first of August, folks, that lifetime fee jumps to $80. That's right $80. I happen to think that $80 is still a scary good deal if you visit very many parks over a the years as some of my fellow bloggers do. And if that were the only lifetime fee option, I would absolutely pay it, even thought I generally hit two parks a year(this year Yellowstone and one in Texas). As I understand it, that extra money is put into an endowment for park purposes. But still if you don't have a pass and have been meaning to get one, you may want to take advantage of that special price while you can, do it this month. Got it?
Now go enjoy the rest of your weekend!
