Do a grid walk, patrol the area and secure the perimeter.
I always find all that left behind stuff. My mis-matched tent stake collection is amazing!!!!
You missed my tree strap on the NCT hang, so you must have been as distracted as I was - I ended up going back in to Porcupine lake on Saturday, and it was still there, right where I wrapped it around the tree. It was one of Brandon's camo straps, so easy to miss. Not like Dutch's bling, that was kind of easy to spot, and was left on purpose by a previous camper. Mental note: remember straps. Got it.
