What Are You Ranting About Now ???
Hey...this is kinda funny.
It's RANT Related.
I was working yesterday & had the radio on (only paying half attention) but, here is the "gist" of this news story ----minus the details.
Some guy in the U.S. puts a note inside a bottle & chucks it into the ocean. The note has the usual:
Wherever you are if you find this please send a letter to the following address.....blah blah blah. The usual "note in a bottle" type note.
Weeks later he is totally surprised & overjoyed to get an envelope in the mail. It has BRITISH postage stamps on it!
Somebody FOUND his bottle!...it made its all the way to England!!!
Anyway...he tears open the envelope & the note inside read something like:
"I was walking along the ocean & I picked up your bloody bottle. The sight of it ruined my walk. You Americans are always mucking up the environment with your litter.:mad: Please don't throw any more of your garbage into our ocean."
Really Very Good Reminder Chris ~ A Worthy Rant
I do not litter...I never did.
My parents taught me very early in life not to throw my junk & crap around.
I also pick up after my dog which not too many folks seem to do these days either.:rant:
And YES, absolutely...whatever you pack in...pack it back out & dispose of it properly.
Where I go "Deep In Momma Nature" here in the deep PA. Woods (Thankfully) there is no litter & I keep it that way. My great love is camping alone.
I pack all of my human residual stuff (AKA trash) back out.
If I do head out to an area that has had signs former "human occupation" then I try to (at least) leave it better than the way I found it.
Please...when you leave any area...you should leave no indication that you were there. Make a "survival" game of it.
Here is my own personal pet peeve.
Please allow me to add it here.
Shooters ~ Please do not intentionally, repeatedly, shoot into live trees.
Especially...Do not use live trees as a target backstop.
Repeated shooting into live trees destroys the protective bark & weakens the tree & its feeding system. It causes that tree to slowly weaken & die. Bad things happen during that dying process.
It leaves THAT TREE open & highly prone to insect infestation & disease.
That causes an increase in specific insect populations, fungus, etc. that then move on to cause serious damage to other neighboring healthy trees (of like specie) & could lead to an entire huge area of blighted trees.
