Pissed F%$&ng 4th of July Campers!!!!!!

Just got back from a nice loop up in Rampart and every other camp spot is trashed. Even found a few fires still smoldering.

Looks like the campers got dumped on during the night and just packed up and left with half their shit still on the ground. One site w/ the smoldering fire still had baked potatoes in the coals and two aluminum pans on the fire.

This stuff really irks me.

Dan

Great. I road by all those camps when they were full on Friday. Glad they are holding up their end of the access bargain. Not. So they littered, ignored fire safety and left bear bait everywhere. Just what the rangers love to see.

Were the baked potatoes any good?

I can't stand people that litter and/or leave a fire going. Almost everytime I camp I end up having to clean the surrounding area for a 1/2 hour before I can set my tent up etc. No excuse for not cleaning up, weather isn't even one IMHO.

The spots up on rollins pass (or the half boulder county is graciously allowing the unwashed masses to access with motorized vehicles) are freaking trashed.
Shells, cans, trash, god. It's depressing. I can see why people want to close down motorized trails. People on horseback, foot, and mountain bikes can't carry much beer, ammo, and trash with them.

Yeah, I kept the hell away from rampart this weekend. It's usually a nightmare with the quadtards on weekends anyways, can't even imagine what it was like this weekend. Didn't see anyone in Kremmling though :)

+eleventybillion. Rode a few weeks ago and picked up targets stapled to the trees and scattered around the ground and trail just after the 686 trailhead. Pack it in, pack it out

Its not what you see that hurts you, its what you don't.
As in Love Canal, Chernobyl or Times Beach, Missouri.

But I agree, litter and litterbugs suck the big one !!

It's disgusting to see the litter out in the hills after one weekend of recreation. We carried out a bunch in the bed of my truck today from previous campers.

We camped out near Rainbow Lakes on Friday night. Our camp site was clean but all of the trees had been hacked with axes and knives. Sap was leaking from the slashed bark, down to the ground.

Sad.

Worse, than trash in my opinion.

But I smashed all of my beer bottles before I left. Isn't that good enough?

Ya, I forgot to mention the clear cutting part.

One site even put their trash in 3 large bags. Problem was they left the bags there. Must think Metro Waste has a Unimog trash truck that does the Rampart route every Monday.

It really is unfortunate that so many people act this way.
Next time I am out riding, I promise to help even the score by taking other people's trash out. Even a little bit helps.

I thought we were talking trash as in litter.
That's a bit of a leap you made there.
