I could understand a commercial company needing permits & licenses. But for private parties? Really?
Each and every single one of you needs to ask yourself how it is that you can support this type of nonsense from the government you voted for to represent you.
Rec.gov is a government monopoly and ripoff....
I asked myself, and I came up with this. I support this nonsense to keep tards like you off the river. The very fact that you stomp your feet and question why every jack dick shouldn't be able to freely jump on a river without a permit is reason enough to have permits. Its this type of reasoning why Ruby Horse had to become permitted. When every ass clown and their mom are allowed to freely float without regulation, river sections camp areas turn into dumps! Nothing majestic about camp sites covered with toilet paper and old bonfire pits and a lurking smell of urine/poop stench. Go sign up for a commercial trip so you don't have to worry about all this crazy bureaucracy
