Boy shabby, I am sure glad we don't have many inconsiderate campers like you in Manitoba. I sure wouldn't like to have my 'fingures' broken either, whatever fingures are.

I can't speak for the rest of you but my grey water either smells like Old Spice body wash or Crest toothpaste. We rarely cook so there is no dish debris. It smells clean and the neighbors appreciate it especially after I have dumped my black water!

FYI mister shabby !

It smelled like rotten A## and the breeze was coming my way . If You think I was going to sit there and smell it all night YOUR sadly mistaken.

Btw I dont have any "fingures" so I don't know what you breaking ?

I guess if I was dumping rotten A## smelly grey water that smelled like it was in the tank for 3 weeks and it was blowing into someone else's camping spot I guess he could shut mine off to .
But then again I wouldn't have let it run out anyway !

I wonder if shabby was the guy at the London, Ontario NHL game with bananas for a snack?

Alberta Campers

Crocus, we are sorry that you had such a bad experience in Alberta. Please be assured that all Alberta campers are not the same. We have traveled all over Alberta, BC and into the US and found bad campers but they are far from the norm. Most of the campers we have met in our 30 years of camping have been really wonder people who were kind, caring and more than willing to help, share or just visit. I hope too many people weren't influenced by your bad experience and we also hope, in time, you will give us another chance.

follow-the-road, you are 100% correct that the vast majority of campers are awesome people. We have camped throughout western Canada and wetsern US, and have only run into a handful of ringers. That is what was so shocking in the Alberta Cypress Hills, as they were ALL rude! We simply had to leave because we felt so uncomfortable. I have never had that experience before, and intend to never have it happen again. I don't need to camp in Alberta, so why would I?
Banff isn't bad, but most of the campers are NOT from Alberta, and the aholes are quickly dealt with.

The main thing I thought about while reading 7 pages on this subject, is how we have been educated and things we have learned in the past 50 or 60 years. Growing up on a working farm during the 1950's we were not aware of all these potential problems we were living with. We did not have a pressure water system or sanitary sewer till 1958. One bath a week, necesary or not. Probably didn't notice body odors because we all smelled the same. The outhouse was moved every couple of years on to a new pit lined with 1x12 rough cut boards. Our fresh-water well was next to the cattle yards. That way the windmill could pump directly into the cattle tank, where we would swim on hot summer days, until Dad or Mom caught us. The hogs ate our garbage with the skim milk we had seperated from the cream. The tin cans and garbage, that the hogs wouldn't eat, was buried in a big hand-dug hole. In 1973 we were certified for Grade A milk production. (Had to move livestock yard farther away from the well) My family including my children drank raw milk from our own dairy cows. Well water was tested and was fine. My siblings and me did not have all the colds and ear infections that my Grandkids suffer through now. It is amazing how we have all survived. And no I do not dump my grey or black tanks at our campsite.

You are no different than people who tent and wash their stuff out and pour it on the ground. The water really has no ill affects on nature. Do you wash your car or truck outside? How about that soap, road oil, grease, wheel cleaner. That stuff has much worse chemical affects than the soap you use to wash your dishes, clothes, hair etc.
