[pct-l] Trail Proximity to a desperate world (was Trail Integrity)

Litter and human waste along the PCT are problems unsolvable 
via this list, unfortunately. Everyone around here surely 
knows better. As for human waste (and prescription med 
bottles, diapers, canned goods) deposited on the trail 
itself, it's likely a border control problem. I'd be curious 
to know how far north such calling cards have spread.
