Default No "parking" at Ft. Pickens?

Had a long walk to find a good spot the other day. My friend decides it would be smarter, rather than dragging all the gear back to the truck at the end of the day, to go and grab the truck and pull of to the side of the road for a sec while I load all the gear in it. Got bitched out by a park ranger (rather rudely I might add. How come every park ranger I meet seems to be an arse?) for "parking". Parking is defined as "leaving the vehicle unattended"?

Just had to vent and maybe get some other opinions on this...

Look up their federal statute under stopping or parking.
If it doesn't specify stopping temporarily, then you have a legit complaint regarding your comment.
As far as the rangers at ft pickens go, I agree with you.

Man that would be SO SWEET to "stick it to the man" under a technicality! "Look here mr. !$%[email protected] park ranger, under statute 22a sub section 2, you can PISS OFF!" haha

Default Agreed on Rangers being A$$e$

I got into it with a Ranger in Panama City, guy wanted to talk to me like I was his kid. I told him I am a grown adult, write the ticket or shut up!!! He warned me and let me go!

I go to Johnson Beach 2 or 3 times a week and they want a driver license and my pass no matter who is on the gate. Two of the guys know me & my wife pretty well but still want my license and pass. I have been going out there for 29 years. They used to not hardly check you but about a year ago they must have got a new boss because since then they check every one.

The last time I went to Johnson's Bch... the gent at the gate asked for a second ID when I showed him my pass. I said no sweat and provided the additional ID. The Ranger apologized and said that it was a requirement. Again I didn't mind a bit... makes sense. Friendly, professional, older guy just doing his job.
