Earlier this year, I turned 62 years old. That meant I was eligible for the National Park Service lifetime Senior Pass. Turns out getting older does have a benefit.
Since the price was going up from $10 to $80 at the end of this month, I went to Springfield Armory (the closest park to us) on Monday to pick up the pass. With the price going up, there’s been a run on the passes and they were out. So I put my name on the Rain Check list. They called yesterday to say the pass was in, so I headed back to pick it up.
However, neither of the Park Rangers I spoke with on Monday or Tuesday asked to see my drivers license to make sure I was actually 62. I guess that means not only am I a senior, but I look like a senior.
😉 Oh well. I’ll still enjoy the pass.
