All the backcountry shelters and tent sites had this arrangement for NOT dumping your food scraps when cleaning your dishes. You are to "carry out" anything you "carry in," so food scraps are like any garbage. "Pack it in, pack it out."
Meet others in Nashville, middle Tennessee, and beyond, interested in backpacking. We also sometimes simply hike. We also kayak and kayak camp sometimes. But mostly we backpack! Talk about locations, equipment, tents, hammocks, packs, stoves, cameras and photography, clothing, weather, wildlife, food, recipes, etc., and find fellow hikers to take trips with. Classes, slideshows, and backpacking opportunities year round are available.
