"Ecologic" Humor



I am forwarding this from another list. Not exactly on-topic but these ARE
real opinions from people on wilderness camping trips. Scary isn't it :)

>>This list is circulating among Forest Service employees.  These are
>>actual comments left last year on Forest Service registration sheets and
>>comment cards by backpackers completing wilderness camping trips:
>>
>>"A small deer came into my camp and stole my bag of pickles.  Is there
>>a way I can get reimbursed?  Please call."
>>
>>"Escalators would help on steep uphill sections."
>>
>>"Instead of a permit system or regulations, the Forest Service needs to
>>reduce worldwide population growth to limit the number of visitors to
>>wilderness."
>>
>>"Trails need to be wider so people can walk while holding hands."
>>
>>"Ban walking sticks in wilderness.  Hikers that use walking sticks are
>>more likely to chase animals."
>>
>>"All the mile markers are missing this year."
>>
>>"Found a smouldering cigarette left by a horse."
>>
>>"Trails need to be reconstructed.  Please avoid building trails that go
>>uphill."
>>
>>"Too many bugs and leeches and spiders and spider webs.  Please spray
>>the wilderness to rid the area of these pests."
>>
>>"Please pave the trails so they can be plowed of snow in the winter."
>>
>>"Chairlifts need to be in some places so that we can get to wonderful
>>views without having to hike to them."
>>
>>"The coyotes made too much noise last night and kept me awake. Please
>>eradicate these annoying animals."
>>
>>"Reflectors need to be placed on trees every 50 feet so people can hike
>>at night with flashlights."
>>
>>"Need more signs to keep area pristine."
>>
>>"A McDonald's would be nice at the trailhead."
>>
>>"The places where trails do not exist are not well marked."
>>
>>"Too many rocks in the mountains."
