auto correct.

Litter or trash patrol.

Other bad habits we found was doing a #2 in the corner of the screen shelter and leaving it. After the Rangers removed the pile, we had to wash the floor with bleach to clean it out for future use. The people that had rented the shelter were from India. I guess they want to make if feel like the home country.

Pretty much every one that camps around here has lots of free camping gear. There is another faction that has lots of beer,soda.water and other unopened beverages. In my case it is the entertainment value. The Saco river runs through my land and this is what brings the campers, on any given day in the summer there maybe as many as a thousand rental canoes from NH through ME. They come from places like Boston and other points south and some have never even seen a real canoe much less sat in one. They are a messy group and it costs the rec counsel a great deal of money to clean up after them glad I'm not their parents. There is a 'litter" patrol that cleans up the river.

The beautiful stone cabin shelter atop Blood Mountain here on the AT in Georgia has long been used as a urinal since it had a dirt floor.

So they went to great trouble to pour a concrete floor in the cabin.

No difference.



So most thru hikers store their gear in the cabin, away from critters, and sleep outside.

Katahdin is scared to the Penobscot people. It is offensive to them to have the mountain disrespected as it should to everyone; it belongs to all of us. The park service has every right to enforce the laws.

Every right, and a clear duty as well. Not because it's sacred to someone (I don't think the whole of humanity should be bound by anyone's private superstitions, not even by my own), but because it's a part of the commons -- it belongs to all of us. Citizens should be restrained from trashing property that belongs to other citizens, even if it belongs also to themselves. "Trashing" includes behavior (such as drunken celebrations, or smoking, or noise, or property damage, or scattering garbage around) that makes it impossible for the other owners (such as you and me) to enjoy quiet use.

And they're right. It's their church. They bought the land, and built the church and paid for it. No one builds a mountain.
