Ripley hunt changes

8 posts in this topic

I read online that there are some new changes to the rules of the ripley hunt. Looks like you can now get there at 530 am the day before the hunt.

There is also a 10.00 per truck fee and if the road outside the camp fills up they will let you in for 30.00 per truck additional or you will have to come back later.

That's not the way I interpret it. As it reads, it states that if you are in the waiting area before 5:00am the day before the hunt, you will get charged the $30.00.

I copied this from the rules:

3. Enter and exit Camp Ripley only through the Railroad Security Gate by the Mississippi River Bridge on Highway 115. Do not

arrive or line up outside the railroad gate until directed by traffic control officers! NEW FOR 2009: An entrance fee

of $10.00 per vehicle will be collected by the military at the railroad gate to offset traffic management, security, range

patrol, and road maintenance costs associated with the hunt. At discretion of traffic management officers, if parked vehicles

back up too much on CR76 prior to the posted arrival time, those vehicles will be forced to leave the area or enter Camp

Ripley. Those vehicles entering Camp Ripley prior to the posted arrival time will be charged a $30.00 entrance fee.Only cash or checks will be accepted, and checks must be made payable to the Camp Ripley Mess Fund. After paying

the entrance fee, each vehicle will receive a validation that must remain visible when exiting and re-entering the installation.

I would bet that there are going to be plenty of people that will pay the fee just to get in early, and get their spot.

    • Thanks for the link.
    •   Well Friday, Saturday, and Sunday have all come and gone. And nothing came, because your link is Zero Hedge.     I just took that straight from Wikipedia. It's amazing home much those last few words just keep showing up.
    • http://www.politifact.com/truth-o-meter/promises/trumpometer/   This is what you are looking for.
    •   Sounds like the House of Reps. who pulled their AHCA (Ryan/Trump  Care) so when their fellow Rep. voted it down every one would know who was against or for it. Now none of them have to explain how they voted, the same as how some on here weasel out of explaining their statements, by reverting to name calling.
    • caught my first fish with a lamprey on it and also got a 35 inch pike on a salamander. 
         
    •   Bafflegab! Hot darn! I like that! Is that like my psychobabble, aka Mayospeak , or to quote Thurber, Pussgrapple or even Cussgravy? I haveta remember that!  "Bafflegab found in this one"?! Go look on the health thread, where yer buddy juicedup gets yammering away at you! ! Now THERE's some  real balderdash and twaddle! Yes, some good, informative threads used to exist here! Once in awhile, you can even run across one! Gotta look hard! 
    • The bite was on last week. With 4 guys we caught over 700 fish in 3.5 days.  And I don't care if anyone believes me or not.  Actually 700 is probably a conservative estimate because we had to have averaged at least 50 fish per person per day and it was probably much more than that.  Yes some of them were 10" saugers but there were many 16 to 20"+ walleye and the crappie size was the nicest I've seen in 4 years with no keepers under 12" and several 13-14" with 2 at 15.25".  All of the pavement pounding and scouting this winter and last week really paid off on this trip!  This is the most hardcore group of guys I fish with and they really know how to put the smackdown on these fish.   
    •   If you guys need fishing advice just ask. I've never had a problem sharing. 
    • Any time I have ever tried that it creates havoc with the sonar until it floats back up the hole and is removed but if anyone has a fix for this let me know.
