[QUOTE=Slolane;2970930]We bought one in January, already got our money's worth, but we're retired and on the road.
One thing that the ranger who sold it to us said - you can have two names on the card. When you buy it only sign one name on the back. You can resell to someone else when you're done with it.
When I can get the Golden Age Passport - Lifetime $20 at age 62 (not that it will be anytime soon
) I'm giving my annual pass to my son.[/
If you purchased an American the Beautiful pass ($10 for those over 62) it is :
A. Only good for the single person issued too
B. It is good only for YOUR use and lifetime
C. one card will allow the pass holder and those riding in the car entrance to a fee based federal facility
D. If a fee is required for a specific program (ex: the ferry to the Cumberland Natl Seashore) the pass is good only for the pass holder
D. You can not "will" your card to someone else
E. Only one name per card
F this card replaces the "Golden Age Pass" although the GAP is still honored.
When used, the person checking your card is required to also check a valid signed ID
The seller is required to verify the purchasers name, birth date, fill out a log (which is an official federal document and can be audited and all passes must accounted for) and sign the log.
I'm afraid whomever sold you your card also sold you a load of untruth.
How do I know this you ask?? Because I sell those passes for USFWS and I have the regulation right here in front of me.
An annual Park pass cannot be resold either. It is good for 12 months.
