From the Fresno Bee Newspaper

Yosemite--About 600 park employees were furloughed Tuesday. About 150 employees remain on duty, Gediman said, including law enforcement, facilities maintenance -- such as electricity and sewer -- and emergency medical service.

Some businesses owned by the park's concessionaire, Delaware North, will remain open for limited periods. Examples are the Yosemite Village Store and Curry Village Gift & Grocery, Gediman said.

I have a close friend that is a senior manager with the COE. When Sequestration was upon us last year he received a letter from "higher ups" to make cuts within his area as "painful and visible to the public as possible". He told his boss he could make his necessary cuts and be completely transparent to the public, but was ordered not to do it that way.

I'm not being political here, just stating fact.

I was glad to see that the WWII vets stormed the gates of the national mall and got in to see the WWII memorial! Can`t stop those guys, my dad was a WWII vet.

Just like the war memorials in Washington DC. They can pay park employees to erect barricades and keep the owners out but not pay someone to stand there and let the owners in. Here's what should really happen during a govt. "shutdown"...we the people should put a hold on Congress's direct deposit. Sorry, couldn't keep my mouth shut.

we have reservations starting next Wednesday in Yellowstone. not inconvenienced yet and have not given up hope but it sure looks like they are going to drag it out and we wont be going. we are looking into alternatives but most involve forest circus or national parks and most other places are closed already. I would consider our situation fortunate though, at least we did not drive a few thousand miles to come up to an entrance to a park to find it closed. in west Yellowstone the chamber is listing alternative things to do for those people that came to see the park and are locked out.

Yes,
That one didn't make sense to me. No tickets, doors or attendants at these memorials. You can basically visit them 24/7.
My father was also a WWII vet (WWII and Korea), total of 13 years in the Navy.

I registered to be an escort for these Honor Flights (you pay your own way), but have never been called.
You can bet I would have moved the barracades for these guys to see their memorial.

Best regards,
Doug

See, that's what I was wondering also. Most of the campgrounds in NPs are staffed by volunteers. I don't understand why a camper would have to get out. The government is us, not some nebulus entity out there. Afterall, THEY ARE OUR PARKS!

Do a search for CONTACTING SENATORS AND REPRESENTATIVES I called my senator and representatives office in Idaho and asked the secretary to please send them a message. " Git your s h 1 t together and do what we sent you to Washington to do. In both cases the nice lady that answered the phone assured me they would get the message.

In mid October, we are supposed to be stopping in Gettysburg for a few days, on our way to Florida. We may have to rethink that part of the itinerary. It is really too bad. The boys have been planning this trip around the 150th Anniversary events.

We have reservations in a local NF for Tuesday and Wednesday. We did get a call from the campground this past Tuesday saying that since they're a concessionaire they will be open. Of course, on Wednesday the stories started flying that concessionaires are being told to close all their campgrounds. I'll try calling on Monday and again on Tuesday before driving up there.
