Yeah, I think those rangers at the takeout have to assume everyone is a slow dumbass. We pulled in there on our last trip and were first there, I think we had camped at IP that night. And he still wanted to limit us to the first two lanes just in case anyone else showed up. He made me drag my boat back upstream to get out of the way of no one. Most of our boats did need to be torn down but I tried to explain to him that I have a rapid rig trailer and I would be there 10 minutes max if he just let me get my truck. After a bit with no one showing up he finally came over and asked me if I was sure I could it, heck yeah. Backed the trailer down in one shot, unloaded into the trailer, winched her up, gone. He was amazed!! I bet those guys hear a lot of BS down there.
Iíve never heard of a 30 minute limit but every time Iíve been down they are always worried about two more groups showing up while you are still there. Trying to keep you in your area and making sure you arenít loafing. Itís just always been that way so itís good to have a group discussion about it and get the kids on the right page before pulling up.
