Moderators SeaDawg Posted June 28, 2017 Moderators Share Posted June 28, 2017 We just got back from four weeks in almost paradise. Fifteen years ago, there was zero trash in our path. This time, I was picking up a lot. Iceland is overrun with tourists, and people who rent campervans who have never actually camped before . The same crap I find in campsites in the US, sadly, I found in previously pristine Iceland . Bits of plastic, breadties, an occasional shoe. Plastic shopping bags. Cigarette butts. How do we control this? This applies to us, too. First of all, control your own. Don't throw just a bit in a dumpster. Put everything in a ( preferably) paper bag, and make some weight, so the dump truck doesn't spew your well intentioned trash into the wind. Recycle everything you can, even if it means carrying those bottles and cans another 200 miles... Pick up your own bits, and those of others. Be a good scout. And, don't put bits in your warming pocket. They'll fly out in a tiny bit of wind when you reach into that pocket. Ditto on using the side pocket of the vehicle door. In a good wind, will trash fly? Here, I know I'm preaching to the choir. This is a group of careful people. I'm just so saddened every time I camp, and find trash in my campsite and campground.

No inverter. 2 x 105 ah agm batteries . Life is good. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
