Limit the number of shuttles and avoid wearing bikinis on the Gunpowder

August 06, 2011

I have four ideas for how to control the out of control crowd tubing on the Gunpowder River ("Taming the river," Aug 3). I certainly agree that it has been a very enjoyable activity. It used to be a way to teach the young to respect and enjoy nature. It is, for sure, not a place for anyone who does not respect nature.

One: At least limit the shuttle companies to one.

Two: Prohibit anyone from taking coolers on the river or in the tubes.

Three: Prohibit possession or drinking of alcoholic beverages on the river.

Four: Advise, and require the shuttle company to advise, that no one wear a bikini bathing suit. That water is very cold! Enough so to chill the whole body.
