Earth Day

Happy Earth Day 2014!

As intrepid Bigfoot hunters & researchers, we're big proponents of exploring the outdoors. Today, it's also important to celebrate the care & keeping of the land we love!

Our friends at Leave No Trace started The Bigfoot Challenge years ago to encourage campers, hikers and anyone who wants to explore the wild to take a page from Bigfoot’s book and leave nothing but footprints. 

For Earth Day 2014, we wanted to give Ranger Rosie the chance to share their very important Seven Principles with you!

1. Plan Ahead and Prepare

Being prepared means knowing the lay of the land, the rules and regulations of the area you’re exploring, and how you’re going to follow the next six rules ahead of time.

Luckily, you’re not on your own! Chimani is an awesome mobile app that serves as your travel guide, map, audio tour and a whole lot more – all your mobile device!

They’ve carefully crafted maps & guides for National Parks all across the United States, and the app is designed to work without an internet connection. Unfortunately, it's not designed to help you catch Bigfoot. That one's all you!

2. Travel and Camp on Durable Surfaces

This one we might not have thought of! The key is to avoid damage to the land. Leave No Trace says ‘good campfires are found, not made.’ 

3. Dispose of Waste Properly

The proper way to dispose of waste varies based on the type of waste! Click above to find out how to effectively leave your waste behind, without leaving a trace. You wouldn't want Bigfoot leaving a mess in your house, would you?

4. Leave What You Find

We've all had a moment where we want to grab an awesome rock, plant or tree branch as a souvenir – but try not to remove native things from their environment. That includes Bigfoot! 

5. Minimize Campfire Impacts

Keep ‘em small, or find areas where previous campers have already started a fire! 

6. Respect Wildlife

That means no flash photography when catching Sasquatch on film -- it stresses him out. More importantly, while it feels great to camp out near the water, doing so means you're scaring animals away from their precious watering hole. Consider camping further away from water sources!

7. Be Considerate of Other Visitors

This goes without saying – but your actions can impact other explorers in more ways than you realize. Plan ahead!

The weather is warming up, the hiking boots are coming out, and we’re dusting off our camping gear for a summer of ‘squatch hunting! As you get ready to enjoy the outdoors, keep these principles in mind.
