ITF009: FunTreks, Dispersed Camping, and Leaving No Trace


This is In The Field Camping Podcast Episode 9

In this episode we talked about FunTreks (www.funtreks.com) and their excellent guidebooks, which are great for off-roading as well as a camping resource.  The book I referenced, Guide to Northern Colorado Backroads & 4-Wheel-Drive Trails 3rd Edition by Charles A. Wells & Matt Peterson can be found on FunTreks’ website or Amazon.  I also talked about Motor Vehicle Use Maps (MVUMs), which can be found at www.fs.fed.us/recreation/programs/ohv/ohv_maps.shtml

We also discussed “dispersed camping” with info provided by the US Forest Service and the BLM.  Next was “Leave No Trace” and their 7 Principals which can be found at http://lnt.org/learn/7-principles
