Onaccounta I'm old, I paid about $10 for the old folks lifetime pass a few years ago. And, then again, onaccounta I'm old, I forgot to BRING it with me several times. I now have four of them at various fees but I didn't mind paying for the "bang" I get out of their use. I am happy to see, however, the fees didn't rise to the proposed levels which would have made it too expensive for some to visit our National Treasures.
