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.

    • Was clearing some downed trees from trails this morning. Checked a couple of trees and would you look at that. I didn't look very hard so I'm sure there are more, but of course have to head to work. Cold weather predicted after today though...  
    • Fished the Chip this weekend and found some success.  Lots of crappie action in select bay and bottle neck areas near warm water, timber and old cabbage.  Bobber and minnow was best, but anything was working.  We kept 10 smaller fish for the 3 of us and that was plenty of fish for us.  No need in keeping 25 fish (what a joke).  I wish the DNR would reduce the limit in WI!
    •   CM..that is a big "if" and pretty much the story of the series...good puck possession, lots of shots, few goals...and they have to find guys that can score against the "Allen's" of the world going forward...we aren't going to be playing against trash tenders come any playoff time.   Agree with your observation on the D zone coverage...way too much stick checking all over the ice by both forwards and Dmen...lack of putting body on opponents is either A  - pure laziness or  B - simply outmatched physically. This has to be addressed going foward.   Quite frankly I cannot think of one player that stepped up in the playoffs and played above their reg season...not one.    Haula seems to be a headcase...I don't think he is near as good as he thinks he is and tends to beat to his own drum IMO but we might be stuck with him. Ek will figure it out...playing in the World's now after playing in the Junior World's as well so he'll keep working on his game and be a good one soon IMO.   Will be interesting to hear Fletch's spin on things when he assesses things publicly soon but my guess is it will be "the sky is not falling...blah blah blah" same dump every year.  Sounds Like Leo is keeping him unfortunately...but he's made his own bed, now he has to sleep in it and there are not many GM's in the NHL that envy his postion IMO.  
    • So this is my first year playing Bassmasters Fantasy Fishing, What does the Own % mean and does it have anything to do with the points you would earn if that person is on your team?  Or is it a % of people that have picked that person.   Thanks
    • What are my choices?   I have a pump, well actually two pits with two pumps, one on each end of basement.   Probably half horse pumps?   I don't recall what they are.     So if I get one of those battery back up things, ideally I would want it to protect against both pump failure and power outage.  I figure power outage is maybe 12 to 24 hours except for some real disaster here in Rochester.   Pump failure could be days if I am out of town.   But if the battery charger can keep up with the average draw, it would be ok.   Pumping head is about 5 feet if that matters.  
    • If possible, get doctor to give you prednisone or an inhaled cortico-steroid like flovent or asminex (assuming you have prescription drug insurance)   Or the codine cough syrup if nothing else.  It is cheap.  Need a prescription, though
    • There also the 360 things by some companies.    
    • Hi all,   Any advice on purchasing a side image depthfinder? Worth it? Brand & model?   Thanks!   Ref  
    • Which size are you referring to? 
    • How much current do the battery pumps draw?
