America the Beautiful

Weeks ago, at a neighborhood barbecue, I learned about a pass I could get for FREE because I am disabled.  Well, the details are a little different but generally, the crowd was right.

photo-70“America the Beautiful” is a National Parks and Federal Recreation Lands pass.  If you meet the qualifications, people can obtain an Access Pass for free which provides you with free lifetime access to all National Parks and Federal Recreation areas, along with some other perks*.  (* The other perks are different for each state; you’ll need to do some digging to find the exact details for your area.)

To qualify for this free pass you must be considered Permanently Disabled.  With my Stage 4, NSCLC diagnosis I qualify.
