Have you ever tried to plan a US park trip and you're forced to do it during peak season when it's hot as balls and the parks are busy cuz otherwise they just ain't open? Like, I really wanna do a September trip. But I can't. Because nothing is open mid week. I dunno, man. I dunno. We had it pretty cushty for a long time with our parks open daily from March-Nov and no car parking fees and all that... Turning sour now.
