    I choose to take the approach that most people are good people who have a sane handle on their emotions and are eager to correct any inadvertent mistakes as quickly as possible. I find that people meet my expectations.

    I have a tough time, even with campers I know. With campers I donít know, I find it tough to convince them to pack out their garbage rather than burn it.

    Suggestions and/or links are welcome.

    Thanks- 4R
    IMHO, it depends on what kind of trash is being burned. Burning paper isn't a bad thing. Burning plastics is.

    the bigger issue I think with being confrontational...or mother like...is that both of you think you are right. With issues like this there are almost always to schools of thought. I think we've seen it here....seems to me that we have some very knowledgeable folks here that probably do know which plastics to burn and when it would be ok. So...the person being the all knowing mom ...or otherwise scolding someone for burning plastic (for example) might just need to prepare to be schooled.

    One thing I learned a long time ago... a person almost never knows all there is to know about any given topic. Even an expert doesn't know it all.

    My advice....Just be careful being so sure of yourself.

    Here's someone who sa' learned.

    No person knows all there is to know about any topic including the topic of knowing oneself.
