I'm frankly shocked that anyone would complain about a lifetime national parks pass that costs $80.
That's one tank of gas in a full-size pickup truck.
All those of you who are old enough to buy a senior pass can still do so for just $10. So go buy one.
It will be younger generations like myself who will be required to pay the higher fee once we're old enough to buy the pass. And I would happily pay $80 for it. That's a screamin' deal. But I have 10 more years to go until I'm eligible -- and I would wager money now that it will go up in price again before then.
So please, enjoy what you have.
