Hate to correct you f1100turbo, but a bear doesn't take a leak, he leaves a leak.

Wait a minute, we are waaayyy off the subject!


And the bear leaves it anywhere he wants to!

Bears pee in the woods... maybe I am just marking my territory to keep the bears away!

Maybe it's all part of the circle of life

I seem to see way more dog owners leaving behind their dog stuff than campers leaving behind gray water. While it would be impossible to ignore dog crap in the bushes around a campsite (if they've even moved it to the bushes) I can guarantee nobody would ever know I put the fire with the slightly soapy, slightly gray water from my sink bucket. (no food scraps in other words). The same would probably be true with pure shower water. I'm not talking about cooking grease or food scraps personally, although I realize some people's gray water is more black than others.

The difference with the wild life is that bears and coyotes aren't doing their business right next to my camper. They are off in the distance, away from human activity.
As a dog owner, I am consistently disappointed by other dog owners who do not clean up after their dog. My dog poops, I clean it up. I expect the same from other dog owners. Domesticated canines will generally do their business in areas humans occupy. That leads to people encountering the scat and often stepping on it and tracking it around.
As I stated in a previous post, it won't hurt the planet. It's just disgusting. Same for peeing in the bushes. Same for dog poo. Same for gray water.

Just watched PAllen Smith on TV and he recommended recycling grey water from your home to water shrubs, plants etc said it's only shower sink water. Pallensmith.com

"Back in the day" you could open the gray tank valve part-way on your way home and the moisture would help keep the dust down on the roads on busy weekends.
