HOW TO BE A GOOD CAMPER

HOW TO BE A GOOD CAMPER - a new series from Nehasane.


#1 - Do not leave foil, cans & other metals in the fire pit. Carry out all trash. Metals don't burn. Empty containers are a lot lighter than the full ones you carried in. NYSDEC Regulations.

#2 - Do not burn plastics in the campfire - this releases cancer-causing dioxins & other nasty stuff - carry it out. Note that many "paper" food wrappers like oatmeal packets are lined with plastic.

#3 - Use dead and downed wood for your campfire - do not cut or strip standing trees, dead or alive - it's not good for the trees & looks unnatural, wherever there are paper birch trees you can find bark on the ground for starting fires.

#4 - Be Considerate of Other Visitors. Most visitors to wild places go for the quiet & peacefulness - it is not a place for fireworks, gun practice, drones, etc.; joy can be experienced without screaming. Note that sound travels very well over water. Scout & youth group leaders take note... Leave No Trace tells it well.
In the Adirondack Park, operation of Drones is not allowed in designated Wilderness, Primitive & Canoe areas.
