A few years ago I was in St Mary’s Ga and there is a dirt parking lot for people going by boat to Cumberland Island, a National Park. I had been told basically the whole area was open so I was in the parking lot basically digging up trash from the lot. I was approached by a Park Ranger who ordered me to stop.

A senior Ranger was called over who informed me the parking lot was considered to be part of Cumberland Island and therefore off limits. I asked how could an inland piece of land was part of an island but since it was maintained by the Parks Department it was.

They gave me a warning instead of arresting me but they confiscated all of my finds which consisted of a number of crushed cans, bottle caps, pull tabs and $.17.

2 AT Pros, XTerra 705, Tesoro Sand Shark, 2 Garrett Ace 250s, 2 Pro Pointers, 2 scoops, an understanding wife and a sore back!
