Gary does that include backcountry fee's? Or just regular park fee's?  I might just run up to DC if it's fee's to see Gettysburg..

Hope to see some pictures when you return, I have never seen Gettysburg. I need to get back east and see some more parks too. I have lived out west for 30 years. Last time I was in the east was at Lake Placid in '96 working at the Holiday Inn. Beautiful country around there. I grew up in upper state New York near Rochester, we used to camp in the Catskills during the summers. First time for me I was 6 months old in 1956, my parents had a huge canvas tent with big wooden poles. Can remember from my little bit order days watching the popular black bears going thru the trash dumps at night with everyones headlights shining on them, that would have been in the 1960's.
