No entrance fees

 

OK, so the Park Service didn’t put out a press release about how they’ll start allowing certain firearms in parks. But thankfully, they put one out about a few fee-free weekends this summer. That's right, you won't pay to enter "America's Best Idea" on these weekends: June 20-21, July 18-19 and August 15-16.

U.S. Interior Secretary Ken Salazaar said the waived entrance fees would allow more Americans to enjoy an affordable vacation during tough times. The fee-free weekends are also supposed to give a boost for all the communities that surround our parks.

Just don’t bring your gun; you can’t do that ‘til next year.

Has Arnie heard about this?

I take it that these fee-free days are just in national, not state, parks? Considering that Schwarzenegger wants to close 220 California state parks to cut the state's deficit, I doubt he's in the mood to offer freebies...
