After five years of negotiations I have finally come to terms with the NPS on a concession for the spring at the base of Half Dome.
In return for improvements designed to protect the Red Spotted Toad and for developing a website with up to date flow information I will be permitted to charge a user fee- amount of which is still under negotiation.
Improvements, website and fee structure should all be in place for the 2014 climbing season.

$97.52 per liter sounds about right.

Do you get to build some tent cabins on the HD shoulder for your concession employees? 'Cause I might be lookin for a job soon.

Pipe it up the wall for on demand drinking. Add in a vodka pipe while you're at it.

Yous guys are totally missing where Jim is really going with this.
The real money will come when he gets ordained and can start doing baptisms.

Uncle:
Is it true that water from the spring is free, but there is a permitting fee to consider?

N' the use permit, is there a fee schedule depending on how much of the muck your willing to sustain in your water bottle ?
I heard those with MSR or some such, water filters pay a premium fee for the free water ?

ST wasn't paying me enough to do Manips.

And with the all, New, Puritanical ST,
I'd probably get deactivated.
