"[Leave No Trace](https://lnt.org/)" is an organization and a code of ethics
for outdoor activities.

Open relationship
=================

Tails is not my main operating system: Tails does not make me choose
between itself and other operating systems. With Tails I have an open
relationship. Is not my main operating system, I have other operating
systems for other things.

One in my laptop, one in my school...

Tails is not jealous and does not aim to fulfill all my computer needs:
if I need something Tails cannot give me... I can use another operating
system!

But I respect our relationship: Tails does not want to be plugged to my
laptop if I am running other operating systems, so I never do that.

And I don't use identities I use on other operating systems from the
same Tails USB stick.

- Incognito mode for your computer
- A caravan -- you're the owner, you can move it anywhere
- Like a bicycle
  - You can take it anywhere
  - They don't have a registration plate
  - No trace where you've been on the environment
  - Using a bike lock
  - Helmet with shades so you're unknown
