If you are 62 years old or older, you can purchase a lifetime National Parks pass for $10.  If you order online or by mail, there is a $10 handling fee.  If you are thinking of buying one, do it soon.  The price is set to go up to $80 on August 28.

That's a terrific perk for having grown old.  We purchased one several years ago at Point Park in Chattanooga.

What a deal, eh?  I've been piggybacking on my brother's pass when we go on our camping adventures, but I am getting my own now before the price increase.  The USGS is so overwhelmed with requests that it'll take 9-12 weeks to receive it.

Yes, it is.  I'm glad to know that the Park Service is behind in filling requests.  It means a lot of old geezers are going to be seeing our national parks practically for nothing.

Go to a participating park and get it at the gate, so to speak.  I hope they have not canceled the get it at a park system, very convenient.

Funny story; I got mine a few years ago at the Ocala National Forest Umatilla ranger station, I was initially refused as I did not present a valid ID, it was only a US Passport.  Funny in a not so funny way, the girl at the counter, in all honesty, did not think that was a valid ID, she insisted on State driver license or other listed picture ID, not including a Military ID.  Seems the list of vaild ID's did not include US Passports and, as usual, did NOT accept a military ID as one can have one and NOT be a citizen.

Yes, you can get one at a park and you don't have to pay the $10 service fee.  The problem for me is that there are no national parks close by and I'm not sure I'll be in a national park before the deadline.  So I just went ahead and did it online.

In addition, Canada is celebrating its 150th anniversary by offering a free pass to its national parks.  You can order the pass online.

Can't you have a drivers license and not be a citizen?  Come to think of it, I had to scan and upload my drivers license in order to get my seniors national park pass.
