Whether you are paddling on the water, climbing, geocaching, hiking or biking, being considerate of other visitors helps everyone enjoy their outdoor experience.
Principle #7 means more than “be quiet.” Decreasing the noise pollution is very important, but it is not the only thing to consider when being considerate of others. But I saw this photo and had to share.
While almost all of the listed items are good to have on every outing (especially the outdoor outings), be smart and use common sense when considering what items will be appropriate for a specific outing. Depending on where you’re going, some of the items will not be allowed. For example, having a pocket knife with you is a good way to be detained at a museum, airport, or government building.
