Used mine for MANY YEARS Accepted at 2000 sites

Since we are sharing something positive and tax season is coming

There are six sites that offer free IRS tax filing (some charge for the state) if your AGI or income is under $79000. Doesn't include LLC-SCorp.  Here is the list https://apps.irs.gov/app/freeFile  

Turbo Tax got fined today for advertising they do it for free which is not true (also HR Block advertises free 0 cost but it's oops a lie).

This is a great deal, and got mine a few years back when I was in Acadia National Park.  Used it in December to visit the Grand Canyon.

Thank you ARMS.

   I have the America the Beautiful Military pass.  It's nice not having to pay entry fees, parking fees, etc. which can be very high at the most popular parks.

    Show it to the employee at the entrance gate, then hang the pass from your rearview mirror, or lay it on the dashboard.   

    I join you in encouraging my fellow Rainers to get the pass!

Thank you for the reminder, it was mentioned to me at one of the parks, but at the time I was not old enough to qualify.

Great idea! My husband turns 62 this year. Maybe I'll get him one for his birthday. I wonder how that applies when your guest is not 62? I'll check it out and write something about it. Thanks!

I've got a few national parks on my bucket list, and there are a few close to where we're building our new home, so expect to get plenty of use out of our passes.
