      This is a followup to a thread awhile back we had.

      We had a thread not too long ago and the advice given by the poster was if anyone is concerned about a packer's CUA (Commercial Use Authorization) permit status, that they should confirm such.  How does one do that?   

      I did some research.  For SEKI (Sequoia Kings Canyon) National Park, this is the generic and current contact information.  The first email address may go to a current Concessions Management Specialist for SEKI.  I do not know how many such specialists there are, but I did hear back promptly from Mr. Randy Carroll.  

      As for the packer in question, everything is current with them, not only with the NPS but also with the National Forests.  I did find out that packers in addition to having a CUA permit status, that they also have a Resort Special Use Permit with a National Forest, such as Inyo National Forest and Sierra National Forest.  The Resort Special Use Permits are renewed for lengthy periods at a time (such as over 18 years left for the one packer I checked on).  However, the CUA permits are renewed annually with the NPS (National Park Service) but not necessarily on a calendar year-end basis.

      Contact information for CUA permits with SEKI:


      Randy Carroll, 
      Concessions Management Specialist

      Ph: (559)565-4234

      PS.  I did not inquiry about past year permit renewal issues as to whether any packer was late in renewing or not.
