Response to Forest Service Proposed Changes

As I stated in my December 4, 2009 post, the USFS is proposing that the discount at their concessionaire-run campgrounds for Senior Pass (Golden Age Passport) and Access Pass (Golden Access Passport) holders be reduced from 50% to 10%.

Suzi Dow who, together with her husband Fred, own the U.S. National Forest Campground Guide website, has just posted a response to this proposed change. Read her response at Response to Proposed Directives for Forest Service Concession Campground Special Use Permits (FR E9-28744) - as of December 26, 2009.

This is a very well thought-out and reasoned response...I encourage everyone to read it and then to contact your U.S. Senators and Representatives and also to the Chief of the USDA Forest Service, Tom Tidwell:

Mr. Tom Tidwell, Chief
USDA Forest Service
Mailstop: 1144
1400 Independence Ave., SW
Washington, D.C. 20250-1144

Thanks for posting this information, Linda. I put the link on the LD message board earlier today; I hope that people read Suzi Dow's response and make their opinions known to the "right people"!
