Hi, Chris!

I have more than once been severely tempted in such circumstances, 
especially when there are *dead* leps lying in the windowsills of those 
very bathrooms.  Ironic, isn't it, that collecting is *so* regulated (and 
I'm *not* saying it shouldn't be in national/state parks) and yet in the 
name of convenience we construct gigantic bug traps (restrooms) in those 
same parks, not to mention allowing people to drive those big bug killing 
machines in and out of said parks!
