And if you have to s*** it the woods, you never bushwhack a bit off the trail to get some privacy. Nope, that would be environmental damage. In fact, whizzing in the woods is an acid spill of sorts. Yeah, better to hold it. In fact, never leave the house. Better yet, just off yourself and stop consuming air, water, creating pollution, etc. Oh, if only I were never born, then I wouldn't pollute.
Get a grip on it people. Grass grows back. Diablo (the Ape GPS site) has cattle grazing on it. Yeah, no grass getting damaged there. Bare dirt, unless rutted, doesn't erode significantly. The rain comes along, people stop hiking, and the grass grows back.
If a new trail is created, then retire the cache. Simple solution. No new game needs to be invented.
