    It now illegal to own a stove

    It really depends on if your smart enough too know how to properly use a wood stove.

    Gas Warning

    4 gallons is a lot of water I'm gonna stick with what I said earlier. I would pull your fill hose off and pour water around the cap to be sure the cap hasn't failed. I had a similar experience with a brand new boat and the cap was the culprit.

    Welcome to Neah Bay! Now give me you credit card and go fuck yourself!

    Unfortunately all the wardens look at it as you breaking the law. It has nothing to do with having common sense. I gurantee if you get caught by a game warden you will be cited. If you were checked and not cited that's because the fish checker has no authority and all they can do is educate you.
