...no not those seeds. I was setting up my tent the other day to get the seams sealed and do the waterproofing, basically making sure it all still works right and I thought of something. All the trees in my backyard were raining seeds down on my gear and I had to make sure I cleaned the tent before I put it away. I got to thinking about all the reports you hear about how a seemingly innocuous plant or animal species gets transported to a new area and suddenly everything in that area goes to ****. Now, I'm no botanist or wildlife preserve ranger, but I thought it might be a good idea to remind everyone to keep all of your gear as clean as possible so as not to potentially mess up what I'm sure is a beautiful park. I'm sure none of us want that, as we would like a nice place to come back to next year. Thanks all!
