A friend of a guy I work with... works for Miller County AR. bush hogging and what not. Smith Park on Sulphur River is one of his areas. He said people leave everything at the campground. Tents, camping stuff, volleyball stuff, food(and I have seen dogs down there). He said it was a common thing to find stuff there.

I normally find a stake(tent or tiedown) and free firewood someone was nice enough to leave behind.

I have one of these. It goes in the outside storage EVERY night so we don't leave it behind.

I think there would be less chance of leaving something behind if people would pile there stuff up on the picnic table,,, while breaking down !!!
And of course one last walk around before leaving !!!

I do both of those things.

However, we were camping with some friends. I think they ended up with one of our hotdog forks.

Oh man that's gross. I will never look at a campsite table the same way again.

Sewer hose gets disconnected, goes straight into it's garbage bag and into the tote.

Yep... that's what most good campers do but I've seen lots of stuff in 40 years of camping, including that, more than once.

That's why I get such a kick out of the threads where folks say the first thing they do is clean the water spigot connection with Clorox wipes/spray to eliminate any chance of contamination and a half hour later they spread their meal out on a picnic table that had sewer hoses laying on it 3 hours prior.

Geez, all the OMGs about potential bad things on outdoor picnic tables and grills - just use table cloths on the table and use foil on the grill after cleaning it a bit (if you don't think the heat from the fire will render the grill clean)

And no, I don't use antiseptic soap to wash my hands either, just plain soap is good enough. I never bought into the bacteria free life, #1 - it ain't possible and #2 some challenge to the immune system is needed to keep it healthy. Yes, do practice safe food handling and keep things clean with good old soap and water but to agonize over what an outdoor, public piece of furniture may or may not have had on it is a waste of time.

I believe the advantage to using Hand Sanitizer is you don't need water !!!
Even though we do need to use soap & water from time to time !!!
