When I read the OP and other internet conversations about the report from the OP two things come to light
1) The offending party had overstayed the 14 day limit imposed by the forest supervisor.
2) They either gave a ranger a bad time when he indicated such, or the ranger was a bit over zealous. From reading my bet is a combination of giving the ranger a bad time, which resulted in the ranger writing a ticked.
Not to worry. Behave and follow the rules. Remember some rules as written are intended as a tool to combat bad behavior, not necessarily across the board enforcement.
