Just wanted everyone to know that i got a ticket at the gore takeout today for not paying the day use fee that everyone is supposed to. My friend jake and i routed gore, i then hitch hiked shuttle to the put in, and drove to pump house. I didnt stop and pay the fee because my friend and i were just loading up our boats and then peacin out. As we were loading a park "law enforcer" pulled up and immediatley started questioning us about whether we had alcohol in the car(we are underage) he then asked if we had paid the day use fee, and i said no because we were just loading our boats and then we would be on our way, we didnt even park there while we were on the river, and it was our first time on the river( which it was for me but not for jake). He took my ID and issued us a citation of 50 dollars for failure to pay day use fee.
Just wanted everyone to know that paying 8 bucks is better than paying 50. Those guys clearly are out to get as many people as they can, so pay the fee unless you are feeling daring.
By The Way i paddled my new Jefe Grande today and it kicked ass, boofed well, manuevered well, the outfitting is like paddling a lazy boy.
have a good one
