Default Acronyms and abbreviations

We sometimes find that new members of the forum are confused by the acronyms associated with camping in general, and TMs in particular. To help that situation, I have started assembling a list. I would be glad to hear suggestions - PM me - but a list of acronyms can very quickly get crushingly long. I am going to try to keep it simple, and avoid arcane or esoteric entries.
