Howdy Folks, Florida Family welcomes you!!
Please protect this Beautiful Land. Walk softly. Harm no living thing. Harmonize. Use only down, dead wood. Do not cut living trees. Preserve the Meadows . Camp in the Woods. Remember, we are caretakers of this land. Everyone sharing makes a strong Human Tribe!
Please Protect the Water Sources by staying out of DELICATE spring areas. Avoid camping, peeing or washing above spring areas. Keep ALL soap out of streams, springs or the creek! Use a bucket to take your bath 300 feet away from the water source. To be certain drinking water is safe, boil it for ten minutes at a rolling boil!
Use public shitters, slit trenches or covered latrines - cover your paper & waste with ashes or lime, and BURY YOUR SHIT! Bury your neighbor's shit, your dog's shit, your neighbor's dog's shit! Carry a tiny shovel! Break the fly/illness connection: shit->fly->food->YOU! Wash hands afterwards. Dig NO shitters and do not shit near water areas or kitchens. Protect our Health!
Use your own cup, bowl & spoon! Wash them after eating and rinse in bleach-water. Go to C.A.L.M. if you feel ill - especially if you have a contagious disease or are injured.
Camp Together Establish neighborhoods. Community Fires are encouraged. Keep a 5 gallon bucket of water and a shovel nearby for Fire Protection. If you are the last to leave a fire PUT IT OUT! Especially before going to bed! NO fireworks! NO fireworks! NO fireworks! They burn your brothers and sisters and start fires! Keep you camp secure. "Tempt Not Lest Ye Be Lifted From."
Pets are family too. If you must bring them, bring a small shovel to carry with you. Clean up and bury their poop. Keep them fed, on a leash and out of the kitchens, springs & fights. Love them. *If your pet is not spayed or neutered, consider leaving them with a loved one if possible. Many female dogs go into heat and male dogs become agitated and aggressive.
PACK IT IN - PACK IT OUT !!!
Cleanup begins when you arrive. Please bring only what is necessary. There is no janitor here . . . YOU are the cleanup crew. Separate Garbage for recycling. Please DON'T LITTER - Find a collection point. Compost in pits only. Take trash with you when you leave!
