The Lady and I had a long chat on the phone the other night with a close friend of ours. He is a mountain guide and has led and co led trips here and abroad for years. He now leads what he calls "Bucket List Trips", big ticket items participants long to do. Our chat had to do with how shocked he has become the last few years with how little outdoor ethics his clients come with. These are things most of us maybe take for granted like don't litter, pick up after yourself, don't step on vegetation, don't disturb wildlife, be considerate of others.
He has become a Leave No Trace trainer as he has seen it is essential to make Leave No Trace training part of every trip he leads.
Julie and I have just completed our two day LNT trainers course. We will not be formally teaching LNT, it was just a fun refresher and a very good use of time.
We all can benefit with refreshing these skills - and passing them on to others we encounter in the backcountry. We encourage all to take the short online Awareness Course -
