-----> I remember once watching this single, very professional paddler, in a gorgeous green canoe and suddenly realizing he was coming toward my campsite. As he got closer I recognized the tan uniform and knew instantly he was a warden. I immediately pulled out my permit and I.D. He was almost on shore when he called my name. What? Oh, ya, I remembered I logged a float plan and provided all the information necessary including the canoe I was using and the campsites, and on what days. He had a message for me. Call home.I have thought about and seen various"signs" that people use to help friends find their sites. In the end I just notify invite the good and reliable friends of our anticipated location and (and, occasionally, provide detailed directions) then keep a close watch for their vehicle if they have said that they will/might camp.
Keeping the camp off the well traveled routes does not seem to keep folks from finding us (especially, under/un-prepared people that think they need to be rescued).
