I just got back from my vacation in South Dakota and discovered something that some of you might be interested in. My first stop was the badlands, when I got to the ticket booth I was told that the national parks has a new program for active, retired and veterans from the military. All you need is an ID showing that and the pass is free. It gives you free access not only to you but anyone in the vehicle with you. It is good for a year and you when it expires it is also free to renew it, as long as the program is in effect. Is a great deal for those of you who travel and visit the national parks.
