I believe in this case (since they are the tanker type cars) it had to do with rules prohibiting the use of certain types of cars (only having one shell rather than a double one) after the couple...

Those were at both LL Bean and EMS in Albany (not sure on the size, but I think that was 8oz - around $6-$7 range, though EMS was on sale as of Sunday).

Seems like from other postings that 190.8 rule doesn't cause the issue, it's a different rule for that particular mountain that prevents them from issuing the permit for larger groups on that...

Seems odd with that list - they list both Eleanor and Franklin Roosevelt sites as ones that do offer them, but do not list the Martin Van Buren site in Kinderhook at all? You'd think they would...

From the descriptions of the original builder of the park, not much.

In the long run, it may not cost that much. A small amount that they aren't getting for the campsites being used, probably (which could be recouped in the future by greater interest by those...
