Just this past summer I was saying that I had never seen a javalina in the wild. Be careful what you wish for! I had pulled into a Casino parking lot - one that is very RV friendly in Sahuarita, Arizona. I mumbled as I picked up a few plastic bags that were blown around the area, as well as a few other items of trash.
That evening, as I was sitting outside my fifth wheel, 5 of these critters wandered into the area, probably about 10 feet away from me. I had heard that they can be aggressive and that they stink. I went inside and watched them. I didn't smell anything that evening, but after another couple evenings, the slight breeze was blowing toward me and that time I smelled them before I saw them.
These few photos were not taken in the casino area, but at a national forest during one of my many visits to the forests. It's just an example of things I have found in certain camping areas.
Every campsite I go to, especially boondocking areas, have trash in the area. I usually clean up after I set up my camp. Then I have the problem of where to take the bags of trash that I've accumulated.
I don't think these campers are RVers, at least I hope not. At least not the ones I know. I encourage all campers to pick up after themselves. As a reminder, most of us know that food cans do not burn. For some reason, they are often found in firepits - charred, but intact!
If we don't take care of our boondocking areas, whether it's forest, BLM or other - we will lose our privilege of using these lands. I know many RVers and other campers who love to boondock in these areas - help keep them clean! Thanks to those who leave the campsites cleaner than when they arrived!
