This had been mentioned here before, but time is running out for the $10.00 price tag of the senior citizen lifetime National Park Pass.
According to CBS Tampa Bay:
CBS Local — If you’re an American citizen who’s been on this earth for 62 years or more, love both national parks and outrageous deals, well, you’re in luck: you can get a lifetime National Park Pass for just $10.
It sounds too good to be true to the untrained eye, but this is no sham. The U.S. Geological Survey advertises the pass that gets owners of the pass into any of their more than 2,000 recreational sites. After the $10 fee, you need not spend another dime. Follow this link for the application.
The caveat, and it’s a textbook use of the scarcity sales technique, is that this price will jump to $80 soon– the USGS just haven’t announced when that’ll happen yet.I bought mine last year when I hit that "magic number" of 62 and have saved money ever since. Normal admission into Yosemite National Park: Private Passenger Autos (this includes RVs): $30.00; Motorcycles: $20.00; Individuals (bicyclists and tour groups): $15.00.
