So it's a pity NPS is considered essential.

Only the law enforcement and security personnel are considered "essential." Most of the NPS employees are not. Which may say something about how things operate in the USA these days.

My wife keeps trying to convince me we should move to New Zealand for a year. I'm holding out for Switzerland, though. Wink

New Zealand would be my choice...

1. No language barriers

2. We need doctors

3. We need BASE jumpers

Cool

I think NZ is a safer bet for you. I believe the Swiss barely accept Americans to visit the country, let alone move there. The only thing they have in common with you guys is guns, every household has an assault rifle! Likely to defend their culture and neighborhood from any Americans trying to move in... :)

I think they just calibrate it by body weight, so Americans have to go through the paperwork twice.

Skip the political bullshit you monkeys and let's get practical. Any friends heading to a certain park, this update on access came across the interwebs today:

"Those attempting to enter with campground or hotel reservations today were turned away...
However, through traffic, such as motorists heading to the east side of the Sierra along Tioga Road, are being allowed in and entrance fees are not being collected...
During the shutdown, stopping to enjoy the scenery or taking a hike is prohibited...
Roads to Glacier Point and the Mariposa Grove of Giant Sequoias are also closed.

And (http://www.fresnobee.com/2013/10/01/3529789/yosemite-closes-gates-because.html)

And yes, I'm aware the NPS Stasi periodically check this site, but they're furloughed and have better things to do at the moment than read your inane banter. Safe jumps kiddies...
