if the Park Service thought it was a "danger Will Robinson" - I'm sure they would err on the extreme side of caution.

You can count on it.

After all, this isn't a Disney Land experience...   :icon_lol:

Oh, yes it is. If it wasn't, you'd be able to ride the rides without supervision and an overabundance of interference (we MUST see your driver's license).

or be at least as tall as Goofy's hand. 

 :rolling: Yeah, but which Goofy :icon_eek: do they use? They are all different heights.  :rolling: :rolling:

You know, it never dawned on me to leave my tent setup while away from it if I were camping and hiking in the back country.  Even empty, I'd be afraid that some hungry or curious animal would decide to see what's inside.

At Chaco Canyon, they recommended leaving tent flaps open if leaving tents unattended that way if a raven or javelina got curious, the tent stood a better chance.

I now use a shoe tree with UV light to kill the bacteria. This method seems not to be very well known but it works like a champ. UV kills 100% of the bacteria and reduces the odor greatly. From the day I started using it, I have learned to love it too.
