So wearing a dress and then visiting remote cabins is your Friday jolly?
:)


I am also one of those that prefer not to be in a group of people, as the main reason for me getting out is solitude, or intense quality time with my son.

The list in Post no 1 is excellent, and there should be no need to write it down, as that is how we should behave at all times ( modified for circumstances)

But I would love to know how you achieve the same hygiene in nature as at home. (point number 15)
Impossible.

Things I can't stand when i'm out in the woods...
* Other people's music
* People talking politics/Crap
* Loud people
* Know it all's
* Burning of rubbish on a communal fire whilst people are cooking
* People with no bush skills doing dangerous stuff
* Dog walkers
* Posh dog walkers
* Having no where to poop
Going by this list, if you were Blind, Deaf and constipated you would have a really good time.

Dog walkers plugged into their phones listening to music with no idea where their dog is or what it's doing.
Dog walkers who scoop the poop into a plastic bag then hang it on a bush or just leave it on the ground.
I love dogs and there is no better companion in the woods. But these idiots make me want to commit something I shouldn't. Especially when a polite request to remove such offences is met with rudeness or indifference. Says it all!

Agreed about these plastic bags hanging off trees, as the Hon Sec of the International Dung Beetle Society, i can confirm we are having trouble getting supplies.

A recent trip to tarr steps there were SIXTEEN bags of dog poo thrown in the hedge or hanging from the hedge on the walk down from the car park to the river. Less than half a mile... to say nothing of the little piles that were not picked up. Despite polite notices and a poop bin. Grrrrr!
