I know I am preaching to the chroir here, as most people on the BOC pick up after themselfs. I am sure that I am guilty for forgetting the ocassional pop can, or coffe cup. But for the most part what I pack in I pack out. On my way to one of my remote locations last weekend, I walked by an area that is fished hard by bank fishermen. It looked like a family of 12 had a large picnick the day before and left everything behind...Cans, bottles, papaer towels, worm containors, at least 6 half empty tubs of chicken lives rotting, bags of snacks, you name it.. I picked up what I could and but in a 5 gallon bucket, but it would have taken several trash bags to get it all. I dont know why people do this?
