A Guide to Leaving No Trace: Collection Introduction
It's all about that Leave No Trace hiking. And camping. And wandering in the woods! When we step into nature, we should be remembering that we have to protect it. We've gotta keep it clean and keep it safe if we want to keep getting out there, and if we want to keep being able to enjoy it. So, I saw that @happyrock posted the 7 principles of Leave No Trace hiking, and I agree that they (http://www.vingle.net/posts/560029) are all great for following. But I think we should take it a step farther beyond the knowing basic principles. Even if you're familiar with them, do you really know how to put them into action? Are you familiar with how to properly pack up and carry out your waste, and what all needs carried out (aka just because it's organic doesn't mean you should leave it to decompose)? I've studied how to really leave no trace for a long time, so I'm planning on using this collection to clip and share those ideas. If you have any tips you want to learn more about related to the seven principles (listed below) let me know and I'm sure me or someone else in the Community can write up how to do it! Anyways, thanks for reading! Let's keep this beautiful planet clean. The Seven Principles of Leave No Trace: 1. Plan Ahead and Prepare. 2. Travel and Camp on Durable Surfaces. 3. Dispose of Waste Properly (Pack It In, Pack It Out) 4. Leave What You Find. 5. Minimize Campfire Impacts. 6. Respect Wildlife. 7. Be Considerate of Other Visitors.

I'd love to learn more about how to find & use old campire rings. I am not really well versed on how to minimize campfire impacts

@treedweller I think like @fallingwater I'll mostly be learning a lot but if I think of anything or come across anything I'll be sure to add it.
