    Exactly. Too many people breaking the rules generally leads to stricter rules and tougher enforcement, which ultimately leads to a less pleasant experience for everyone.

    A rebel without a cause. Those 18/19 years old kids are not a threat to your civil rights. I never was a RR myself, but i can only assume that those young men and women do this thankless job out of pure love of nature and our parks and our wilderness areas. And they are a great source of information of which they would love to share with you.
