Where do you piss?
So we're chillin' at the Benches on the Upper C last weekend on a layover day, and the Yarmony Grass float trip swings through. They pull in to set up their floating stage (very nice double-wide (pun intended) raft platform, btw) at our beach. No problem, very respectable organizers, but among the 150 or so people, we noticed everyone who had to piss were finding spots all over the damn campsite. Grrr.
Where I'm from, you tell everyone on your trip to piss in the river. Anyone remember "pollution solution = dilution"? Drilled in our heads by all of the river rangers I've ever encountered.
I have noticed this on just about every trip on the Ark as well. From what I can tell, even experienced boaters are doing this. I've even announced it to groups I've tagged along with. Still didn't matter. Are we all still that uneducated? Or are most just REALLY embarrassed by their small junk?
