    Did you know, for example that you would be violating Federal regulations if you fail to hang your food 10” in the air and 4” from a tree in the Whites, in most any place that does not have a bear box?

    And how many conciencious thru hikers violate the letter of camping regulations at least once during their hikes — even if they respect the spirit of them. Then there are violations of important LNT “rules” that while not in the Federal register, have a significant impact on the Trail.

    Understanding that is not promoting bad behavior, it recognizing reality.

    Understanding That BSP goes ape**** over some things — don’t you love the timing of their Facebook post about two year olds, which they just clarified had nothing to do ith th Crawford’s — is important for people to know.

    The ATC thinks this is important enough that they pay to have a representative in Monson to do just that.

    So yea, it is important to know which rules are taken seriously — and which aren’t.
    Inadvertently breaking a rule is one thing, deliberately doing so is quite another. Feel free to do whatever you want on your own property.

    Well, anyone who clicks on the thumbnails I posted will be deliberately breaking the rules in the Whites if they fail to hang their food 10 feet high and 4 feet from a tree (or use a near box).

    So click at your own peril.

    I’ll be sure to tell a police officer that next time I inadvertently speed - I’m sure he’ll let me off. Just because I don’t condone breaking rules doesn’t mean I don’t think it’s a dumb rule.

I just think there could be damage done and a 6 year old doesn't know when to stop when bad pain comes they just keep going.

    When I first watched the Crawford video on the AT man was I impressed by them. But then I dug in more on some of their other stuff and the parents, especially the Dad, began to rub me the wrong way. Sometimes you have to push your kids even when it makes them uncomfortable. But something doesn't sit right with me on how they go about it.
    It is what it is.

    Is the Dad's latest "They're being mean to us" GoFundMe page up yet?

    That's very generous of you. I'm sure they'll appreciate anything you can give

    It's one thing to encourage kid to push a bit outside of their comfort zone. But virtually dragging a 6 year old through an 8+ hour effort that would be a brisk walk for a grown adult? No great surprise that CPS stopped by the house.

    I agree that they're permanently altering the kid's physical development.

    Proof? Olympic level gymnasts.
    UL, because nobody ever asks "How can I make my pack heavier?"

    wait - this boy is only 6 years old?
    That is even more disturbing.
