Arizona Gets Greedy

I just discovered that Arizona has increased the fee for their State Land Permit from $15 a year to $50 a year. Do they really think this is going to raise more money?

This used to be a great deal for boondockers. I've written about it previously here and here.

What do you think? Will they end up with less money or more? I'm not sure I will renew mine. I may just stay on BLM land instead.

WOW!!! $50???? My current permit expires Feb. 2009. I don't think I'll ever buy another one.

I don't see us renewing at that price! And I supposed the 14 days a year limit is still in effect.

It seems like $50 for a year is still a bargain. Divide that $50 by the number of nights you stay on AZ state land and see what it is per night. Less than a dollar per night, perhaps?

Actually, the limit is 14 days a year. And you're right, it would still be a bargain. But I may not use it 14 days, and if my friends don't buy a permit, I may not use it at all.
