    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.
