Personally , I say leave it at 18 hours . It will prevent folks from picking up a tag and holding it for eternity . IMHO of course .
Besides , right now , there are over 100 riders on their way to this area as we type . The 18 hour time frame will motivate lots of folks to get lots of photos . And we all like lot's of photos ya know . LOL
I agree with you in trying to prevent the waiting all week before posting a tag that was nabbed during the week . Thats what makes the current time fram work .
Riding public lands is our privilege not our right .
RIDE LEGAL LAND
DON'T RIDE AT ALL !
