Ding, Ding, Ding........Steve Spence just replied to me. I need to dig out the DNR rules and fire it back to him. Here's his letter:
You write, "Besides violating numerous state laws with regard to being in the water with the vehicles and driving on closed trails. . ." Exactly what law or regulation do you allege that we were in violation of? If we cannot "just drive right out on to the rocky beach or down any forest road," would it not seem plausible that the authorities would post signs to that effect? And you're saying if a DNR official had come upon us he would have cited us "thousands of dollars"? Exactly for what?
