That's cool, my sister and I paint rocks and leave them along our travels. Seems to make people happy.

That is a great idea. Your carving makes camping for someone about exploring and discovery, perhaps as opposed to just watching TV at a different location.

I occasionally leave a gourd birdhouse (painted or wood-burned) as a thank you for campground or park staff.

That's really cool.

When we hiked a very small portion of the Appalachian Trail, we were given a wooden whistle a man carved out of tiny tree branches and gave to people hiking the trail.

A great idea.... thinking.... what could I leave.....
