Default Primitive campsite not a landfill

Upon hiking in several miles and stopping by a primitive campsite in Los Padres National Forest we couldn't help notice that obviously someone else managed to hike in with food and water transported in original consumer packaging and felt the need to leave it all in the campfire pit.

Think about that. It's necessary to bring what your body requires for nutrition and hydration and you're willing to tolerate the weight of all that and carry it in but yet when it's used up and now there is only the mere weight of the packaging left to carry out, which is a tiny percentage of what it was when full, suddenly it's a burden and gets left behind for someone to look at or burn or ???

I mention this here at Calguns because shooters have the same attitude about targets and the trash they leave behind.

Kinda makes you wonder how some of us must look to those slightly more responsible.

Cigarette butts. See them everywhere near intersections. Hard not to look at them and think "losers."

Meh...saw a used condom on the street next to the local high school today. There was the de riguer post-coital cigarette but lying right next to it too. Makes you wonder.

Everything flows to the ocean. What's in the gutter today is in the ocean tomorrow.

OMG if this bothers you I urge you to never visit Azusa Canyon any local at any time...This is disgusting and only getting worse as the years go by, sadly I've seen it in other states as well. But never as bad as here in Cali all of Cali from end to end.

That's the ugly side of human nature and how some people act when no one's around. It's that same sort of thing that makes me worry about (all) people with guns in a SHTF situation. Will they no longer care where their misses go if they think no one's around to hold them accountable...

Welcome to the way of life today. I do a lot of back country fly fishing and am amazed at the mess that is left by people.

But do not worry, someone will blame it all on either the liberals or Obama.

and to think a lot of trash is left behind by card carrying members of the sierra club. as they are (for the most part) the only ones going up to the back high country to camp.
piles of trash up there also.

I'd be willing to bet that very few Sierra Club members leave trash in the back country or in town. I'm not a member but I know several. People don't join the Sierra club just to hike. They join to be among like-minded people who care about the environment.

While I haven't been a member of the Sierra Club in over 25 yrs, I still have many friends that are members of the SC or various river/environmental groups . I can guarantee you any piles of trash you see in the back country are not from those folks. Maybe you need to look closer to home.

I love the outdoors, 4 wheeling, dirtbiking, hiking etc. Many people don't like going with me because I make the group police all brass and garbage, even stuff that is not ours. It makes me very angry when idiots leave garbage all around.

The group I go four-wheeling/camping with follow the principles of Leave No Trace and Tread Lightly. I have walked through areas where over a hundred 4x4s have camped over a weekend, and not one piece of trash was found.

Being responsible in the woods is not difficult, just takes a little bit of effort

Not sure of the area, but lots of trash makes me think maybe pot growers?

You should see some of the trash I find while hiking next to the Int'l border. I KNOW who's trashing that area.
