Men think that they own the water they use. You might as well claim [the] air.... to say that you own the water.

The Utah Constitution recognized and confirms the public's ownership of Utah Waters.

I think this guy just earned his "sign" - Foxworthesque!
Someone shared a story about falling through the ice, then managing to lock himself out of his truck while changing out of his wet skivvies. Yup - buck naked, trucks running, keys inside.
Back in the day a buddie and I got stuck in the snow wheeling up the river near the B in bountiful. His bro came up with his 3/4 ton Chevy to pull us out when his truck slid sideways and down into the river he went.
We called the 4th buddie who had a winch on his truck. While waiting for the 4th Buddie, Good old Sherrif tidywities pulled up and cited both of us.
At night we beached our boats on sure, no wind and all looked good..About 3: to 4:00 I wok to find the wind was blowing, by 5:30 when it was braking light we could see our boats had been pushed about 10' to 15' up on sure..
We had to turn my boat around to face the 6' to 8' waves that was coming at us, each time a wave would hit we pushed but with 8 people was not moving the boat + the boat was full of water and the waves would cover and flow over the boat each time..
I had to use the boat motor with the others on the sides of my boat to get it in deeper water off the beach..
It was about 83 the same year the wind sank a bunch of other boats that was in the marina..Oh yes all the other boats was 12'ers so we could load them on the beach..

Yep. Keep thinkin' that. Been nice knowing you.
I couldn't afford a pair of waders, so I bought a Hoodie Footie and 5 cans of Flex Seal. mmmmmm. Fuzzy.
Glad you got out without breaking anything.
