I personally would opt for the camp sited opposite a power plant, nuclear or
otherwise, over one next to an interstate. Most (if not all) vehicles on
the interstate produce emissions much more harmful than any currently
operating power plant. Noise is another pollutant closely associated with
interstate highways. The sawmill? Well, the noise associated with
operations beginning at 4:30a and lasting until 10:30p don't match my idea
of "camping". Surely there are better sites than these!
