Well, since you missed my point. Your comment was off topic as is this pointlessly long response that I didn't read in its entirety because it was quite obvious that you missed the point and are just looking for even the slightest reason to go off on some rant about some cause that you feel is near and dear to you. This slashdot topic is discussing the US Forest Service and a stupid policy they're trying to implement. Bringing in national parks has no bearing what-so-ever since they are under the dominion and control of the US National Park Service which is completely distinct and separate from the US Forest Service.

The Appalachian Trail is managed by the US National Park Service and not the US Forest Service. Most of the lands you are going onto as an outdoorsman are managed by the NPS and not the FS. In fact, if you're on the lands managed by the FS and you don't have a permit you're likely there illegally. It's the national parks that you have free access to.

Possibly, I was under the impression that Ansel Adams took most of his photos of national parks and not wilderness areas. This fine is levied by the US Forest Service which does not manage or have jurisdiction over national parks which the US National Park Service has jurisdiction. The US Forest Service is the same bunch of fools that thought bring what qualifies as essentially SWAT teams to the Bundy standoff was a brilliant idea. This fine, I have no doubt, is directly related to their bungling of how to handle that situation and the media circus that was created. This way they can greatly clamp down on any coverage of similar future standoffs.

In any formula, constants (especially those obtained from handbooks) are to be treated as variables.
