Did you find a 510 one?
With the layout on those limited plates, somewhere out there is a PL510XX - that's be the plate to get.

Hopefully the link works. Only $15 of the fee goes to parks. You would probably be better off sending Merlin the $40. Lol

Being the outdoors person I am, I looked into that when I just renewed the 510, I like those plates! There is a PL510 out there.

When I saw how little in reality goes to the park(s), I said screw that, as it is 50.00 to buy the first year and 40.00 each year after that. Not that I begrudge more money to our parks, I pay enough each summer in camping fees and always leave a spot cleaner than I find it. I even pay the wilderness fees if required and do not try to duck that either.

The Province does need to step up the Parks money, as they really have cut back so much over the past 25+ years, It is really sad in areas out of the public eye, as they have been left to literally rot and there are hardly any true Park Rangers any more to keep an eye on things. They should never have privatized the Park operations, as that was the start of the downfall as profit motive became the objective. Services got cut. People abused the free firewood deal back in the 90's, which ended that! I watched people load up their trucks with firewood at Buttle Lake on Sunday afternoons before they left, really a statement of who they were, and likely the first to complain when the firewood started to cost 6.00 bucks for 4 pieces of wood.

To their credit I must say they have spent some serious coin the past two summers at Manning. What I will find interesting is how PEOPLE look after the infrastructure put in place for their benefit. This summer they will have finished a few wash stations and some new toilets, I plan to take some pictures each time I go to document what happens to them over time.

That's terrible man. I sure hope things improve for you. Butters has always been one of my favorite 510's. My fingers are crossed that you never have to let her go.

thanks guys, Robyn its not about a place to store it . its about being able to pay all my bills on 2 grand a month, and right now my out going is 2500 not including cards gas or food.take my storage fee off that puts me at about 2200. most likely going to have to move also. the sale of butters should cover the dept on the cards.

coming back from picking up some wild game @ hills foods I stopped in at a chevron and was bombarded with " will you sell? how much?" I said 10,500 the guy asked for my number ?...I also got a hit on the wagon @ 12,500 ...... Butters should bring in more than 18,000. if you need any help prepping for sale Im at your disposal
