Frustrated by IDNR fees

July 2, 2013 

The Illinois Department of Natural Resources is going to charge me $6 for a sticker for my Mickey Mouse floatie when I float the Kaskaskia River and also charge me a $15 fee to ride my three-wheeler to visit my clubhouse neighbor. Wow. Nothing against farmers, but they can drive their tractors, combines and pull any piece of equipment taking up 1.5 lanes of Illinois 161 and never need a license sticker.
