I was reading Robin's fine blog (Blogpackinglight) aboutRubbishthat had been discarded by mindless morons on the beautiful Peddars Way. It makes me cringe that human beings can do something like this. Then i remembered that i had taken a photo of a similar kind of mess that had been dumped in Hamilton, New Zealand.
Fortunately we never saw excessive mess in New Zealand, but i'm sure that was more luck than anything else.
Anyway, here's my photo.
It goes to show that the mindless are illiterate too
and whoever is doing the monitoring needs a bit of training.
I am 59 and live in the North West of England with my soulmate Sheila. I have been backpacking and hiking since my early teens. Those early days were mainly spent in the Peak District. Having aquired the basic skills i have since enjoyed both long backpacking trips and shorter hikes in Northern and southern Spain, Iceland, Norway, Madeira, New Zealand, Tasmania, Australia, Majorca, England, Scotland and Wales. Many people i have met along the way have remained friends to this day. It is a pleasure to have met them.
