America The Beautiful - The National Parks and Federal Recreational Lands Senior Pass

I am passing this on: the deal of the century is on its way out?

The Senior Pass, also known under various terms of endearment, such as "Geezer Pass", may cost eight times of what it is now. If you are over 62, check your wallet and if you don't find it, go here to get it asap:

700% increase of price of anything feels like a kick in the shins, but I personally think that it can still gives you good return on investment at $80.

Thanks Paul. Nothing gets by the group. We've been talking about the increase since last fall. Here's one thread: NPS Fee's may increase

Lots of discussion in the later parts of this thread as well.

It will only cost $20/per year, if you only go occasionally to nat. parks. That may help to soften the increase. Carl

Hubby bought ours 2 weeks ago in FL when we went to the Everglades. We were surprised it was not more. As stated, "deal of the century."
