SF New Mexican: Tensions soar as more and more drifters call national parks home.

I’ve not encountered this. Yet.

This is an actual thing. Some are ‘drifters’, chronic nomadics have lost the ability to plug into local/regional networks for graduates in the various services and sciences. I actually have inventories and plans. (Did I say that out loud? Ghu, I’m so stressed…)

Pecos Wilderness is a good spot for it. Few rangers ever patrol the nether regions. Perhaps that’s a good bug-out plan. Further north though, for more water ...

“Drifters” or homeless that keep getting pushed to move on?

But everything is peachy, folks!
Smells like the 1930s.

And of note;
Almost all the watersheds in the Rockies have giardia in the water, so if you bug pack plenty of TP.

Symptoms usually pass after a week.

Dust Bowl. Yeah, I had the same thought. The idea that they can’t divine the reason why ... makes me shake my head.

As for giardia ... boiling for at least minute still works. A full, rolling boil. Enough dead wood in the Pecos to boil all the water you could possibly find.
