[pct-l] Bear-resistant canister requirements (was Cannisters & bugs)
I agree with dave.... I go camping to get away from the beaurocracy
that I am forced to deal with everyday. It kinda sucks that its now
following us into the wilderness. Perhaps the next regulation will
require us to write and prepare extensive planning documentation and
carry a 500 page "wilderness manual" (another 10lbs) that will list
each of the requirements that we must obey while in the back country:
- bear cannisters in these locations
- bear boxes in those locations
- hanging is permitted here but not there
- no fires above 10,000 ft in this park
- no fires above 9,600 ft in that park
- permits required 90 days in advanced here
- same day permits allowed there
- no camping within 200ft of water or trails
- no camping within 1000ft of water/trails in this other area
- no over night camping in yet another area
- no rock climbing over there.
- no base jumping
- no pets (except pack animals, of course)
- no firearms
- pets on leashes are permitted in this other place.
- etc etc etc.......
freakin A!! ...I just want to go camping; as long as I take only
pictures, leave only footprints, and treat mother earth and those on
her with love and respect that enough for me.
