Why No Waiving Of Entrance Fees in SEKI For Vets?

Grab your bear can or camp chair, kick your feet up and chew the fat about anything Sierra Nevada related that doesn't quite fit in any of the other forums. Within reason, (and the HST rules and guidelines) this is also an anything goes forum. Tell stories, discuss wilderness issues, music, or whatever else the High Sierra stirs up in your mind.

Why No Waiving Of Entrance Fees in SEKI For Vets?

Postby maverick » Mon Nov 11, 2013 3:47 pm

Yosemite has been since 2006, between 11/9-11/11: http://www.nps.gov/yose/parknews/yosemi ... eekend.htm
As a Vet, would be interested to know why SEKI does not, and if they do/have, why
does their site not indicate this as Yosemite's does? Any folks here in the know?
Not guesses/conjectures please.

Who pays entrance fees anywhere anymore?

Everyone I know has one of the lifetime passes.

Young farts don't qualify Dave! Of course you were just rubbing it in! One of few benefits for getting old!

Unfortunately that list of benefits keeps getting shorter and shorter as we get older and
older. :(

I have no qualms, remorse, or misgivings about letting 'young farts' subsidize me. So keep working hard all you young taxpayers. Eventually you will be allowed to enjoy the fruits of superannuation!

i think i've paid 4 times in 20 years. I go in at night and come out during the night, when i was young. Think this was about Vets and not age. Guess they should waive it for vets across all the NPS. Not my call. This wasn't about being old, Mike.
