so i pulled my permanent out on tuesday with my wheeler and since i havent used the wheeler in a while and when i did it was just around the yard i noticed after pulling the house out that the registration was expired so i was gonna hed back and take the wheeler home well it wouldnt start so i decided since i was spending the night in the fish house i would just leave the wheeler till morning well the next day the conservation officer comes by and knocks on the door so i opened the door and he asked me about the 4-wheeler and i told him what had happened and he said he would send me a letter with the citation for $20 and i said ok thanks for letting me know i will get that taken care of asap so i get the letter today and call to find out the amount of the ticket and i find out its $100 20 for the ticket and 80 for something they called a ser charge i was a little shocked to say the least i agree that i should have been fined but i thought 20 and proof that i got the problem taken care of would have been fair which i did get new registration the day after sorry i just had to vent a little

It's worth getting a court date, as they will most likely reduce it some. I would give it a try, especially if you have easy time getting time off work. You aren't trying to get out of it, just that you admitted your mistake and willing for the $20, but the rest is too much, IMHO.

I remember hanging with a CO for a day, and he hated doing it, but he had to issue cross country permit fines for those skiing without the $4 permit, and the ticket in Washington county cost $270!!!!!! He always told them to go to their court date and the price would be reduced drastically. Not sure if it is the same, but worth a try.

Good luck!

Ouch. That takes some from the bait fund.

On a side note, and I don't mean to hijack this thread, but BoxMN, how is your dad (I think he is your dad) doing these days? I thought I remember you saying that he was sick or needed surgery.

Hey Ray,

Thanks for asking! He is doing great. Had a new valve put in this spring, and a pacemaker. I had him catching his first fish (small pike) by about July. He has since recovered well from that. About 3 years ago, he had his big operation, a kidney and liver transplant, right during the recovery of a perferated bowel... ouch. He "died" a couple times on the table, we are told, but his doctors and nurses never gave up.

Nor did his organs from our hero, his donor Joe from Mankato, who had a brain hemorage at age 56. We all have become friends, family actually, with his family and his mother - her Joe lives on in my Dad, and they visit regularily, a Godsend to all.

Anyway, to make a very, very long story shorter, he is doing GREAT! He went to duck opener with us, this fall, and we are going to Cabelas tomorrow to "check stuff out" wink.gif Looking forward to fishing opener with him again, as he missed it last year.

Thanks for remembering and asking!!! And to anybody not yet decied, decide to be listed as an organ donor, it truly is a give of life that can make a miracle out of a tragedy, for all parties involved.

Thanks, Happy New Year!!!

(btw, I was tagging along with my Dad and his friend Gary the CO the day I learned about the ski permit tickets. Gary died in the past year or so of kidney related problems.)

That's good to hear. I have always enjoyed reading his columns. Obviously, since he is still writing them, he is doing better.

Maybe I'll see you on WBL this winter (I too live in WBL). I'll just ask everyone if they are BoxMN. wink.gif

    • Luxury RV camping has become increasingly popular in recent years as people look for ways to enjoy the great outdoors while still enjoying the comforts of home. With the right equipment and preparation, luxury RV camping can be a truly unforgettable experience. In this essay, we will provide you with the ultimate guide to luxury RV camping, including tips on choosing the right RV, selecting the best campsite, and packing for your trip.   The first step to planning a luxury RV camping trip is to choose the right RV. There are a variety of different types of RVs available, ranging from small and compact trailers to large and luxurious motorhomes. The right RV for you will depend on your budget, your travel plans, and your personal preferences.   One popular option for luxury RV camping is a Class A motorhome. These motorhomes are typically the largest and most luxurious RVs available, with spacious interiors, full kitchens, and even multiple bathrooms. They often come equipped with high-end features such as leather upholstery, flat-screen televisions, and high-quality audio systems. Class A motorhomes are also the most expensive type of RV, but they offer the ultimate in comfort and luxury.   Another popular option for luxury RV camping is a fifth wheel trailer. These trailers are typically larger than travel trailers and are designed to be towed by a pickup truck. They offer many of the same amenities as Class A motorhomes, including full kitchens, multiple bathrooms, and high-end features such as surround sound systems and flat-screen televisions. Fifth wheel trailers are often less expensive than Class A motorhomes but still offer a high level of comfort and luxury.   Once you have chosen the right RV for your luxury camping trip, the next step is to select the perfect campsite. There are a variety of different types of campsites available, ranging from basic, no-frills campsites to high-end RV resorts with all the amenities. When selecting a campsite, it is important to consider your budget, your travel plans, and your personal preferences.   If you are looking for a truly luxurious camping experience, consider staying at an RV resort. These resorts often offer a wide range of amenities, including swimming pools, hot tubs, fitness centers, and even golf courses. They also typically offer high-end services such as concierge service, valet parking, and room service. RV resorts can be expensive, but they offer the ultimate in luxury and comfort.   If you are looking for a more affordable camping experience, consider staying at a state or national park. These parks offer a variety of different campsites, ranging from basic tent sites to RV sites with electrical and water hookups. While state and national parks may not offer the same level of luxury as RV resorts, they do offer the opportunity to experience the natural beauty of the outdoors.     Once you have chosen the perfect RV and campsite, the final step is to pack for your luxury camping trip. When packing for a luxury RV camping trip, it is important to focus on comfort and convenience. Pack clothing that is appropriate for the weather and activities you have planned, as well as comfortable shoes for hiking and exploring.   In addition to clothing, it is important to pack all the essentials you will need for your trip. This includes bedding, towels, toiletries, and any medications or other personal items you may need. It is also important to pack food and drinks, as well as any cooking supplies you will need for meals. If you are camping in the cold weather, bring the Ocoopa Union 5s rechargeable hand warmers are easy to use for camping. First, charge it, then turn it on, and finally, place it in your gloves or pockets. Additionally, the rechargeable hand warmer has 4 heat settings, allowing you to adjust the temperature to various weather conditions. With a large 10000mAh battery, it can provide up to 15 hours of heat and could use as a power bank, making it an ideal hand warmer for extended outdoor activities.   Finally, when packing for your luxury RV camping trip, don’t forget to pack entertainment options such as books, movies, and games. While luxury camping offers many opportunities for relaxation and outdoor activities, it is also important to have options for downtime and relaxation.
