I got this email a few minutes ago.
I just wanted to thank you for the letter you wrote to our senators and congressmen.
My fiance and I are scheduled to be married this Saturday at Red Rock Crossing. On Tuesday, I called and was told that the park would be open and unaffected by shutdown.
As you can imagine, the news today has me very worried. We have spent literally thousands of dollars to have a special couple of hours in the park with our families who are flying in from all over the United States and the thought of not being able to have our wedding in our dream location is upsetting to say the least.
I hope and pray that your parks and campgrounds continue to stay open.
Red Rock Crossing is a privately-operated campground that the USFS has slated for closure Friday not because it uses too much Federal money (it in fact uses none and pays rent to the Treasury) but because the White House apparently wants to artificially increase the cost of the shutdown. Well, you got your wish Mr. President.
PS- for those who are concerned, we are going to find a way to help this guy get married, even if I have to sneak them into the facility myself.
