I am not going on the trail ride but I think it is bogus that Officer Russell isn't willing to explain to all of us what the law states.
If you are reading Officer Russell, please post link or state the specific law that requires the permit.
BTW, LIV2MX, Do you know how many people were planning on attending? Do not post the exact amount but if it works out, you should charge $10 for the camping, and maybe $5 per person to cover the [gay]permit[/gay].
That is unless you decide to cancel.
But as I said, I was not planning on going to take my suggestion as you will.
