Sounds like everybody on the private lake should go together and buy that piece of land---then start your own kayak/paddleboard rental business on the side. No sense being reactive when you can be preventive.

I bought a cargo van in PHX a couple of years ago and decided to avoid Chicago on the way back, so I came up to WI on 39. Not far from Rockford, they had a new stretch of pavement- nice, smooth asphalt. Or, so I thought. I was cruising along at about 1:15AM and BAM!, an area where the asphalt was gone that was about 6'L x 8'W x 3" deep IN BRAND EFFIN' NEW PAVEMENT!!!!! The shock not only bottomed out, it sheared one of the tabs used to bolt it to the lower control arm. I moved to the side, in case another one would occur in that side of the lane and guess what- same effin' thing on the right half. BAM! Didn't do any damage to that shock, but eventually, the left one came completely free from the control arm.

About a mile later, I had to go through a toll booth. I may have told the guy to kiss my azz but I was so PO'd that I don't remember that part.

I think I know the meaning behind the name of Effingham, Illinois.

Better to get everyone on the lake to chip in for the lot. That way, one person doesn't get nailed with all of the costs, the headaches and maintenance. Also, the tolerance for a price increase that's caused by the DNR going nuts is easier to tolerate by a group, but it also gives the group more legal clout.

Start the petitions and contact your local/county/state representatives.

JimN, I'm confused. Your story took place in northern IL and then you mention Effingham. Which is way down south central IL. And the only thing in Effingham is this:
