On to the Middle Fork Trailhead to Shineberger camp ground. Shineberger is what we call an undeveloped site - no water, garbage or bathroom facilities (remember the PET?). Donít laugh but we had to shovel cow pies and horse biscuits to make room to put up our tents. Just a side note: Our team leader Charlie Thorpe is a firm believer in the Leave No Trace backpacking philosophy- this covers everything from pack out all garbage and gray water to, get this and Iím not kidding, not spitting your toothpaste out on the ground. We laugh and go round and round about being so hard core, but really now, how much damage can I do to a field knee deep in, well, you know, but as Charlie says ďitís the cumulative effect of everyone doing it that is detrimental to the environment.Ē Heíll give up a few battles to win the war. We have been conscientious about our waste and impact during the whole trip. We keep a clean camp and dispose of our waste and garbage properly, carrying it around with us until we find proper facilities. It started to rain after dinner and we got a spectacular lightning show that followed.

The trekkers are on day one of a 40-mile horse-packing trip. Bob Ashley from the support team will travel with them today and I will join them tomorrow.
