    Can i assume that this is the weekend of our quarterly meeting? If so then I'll be there. I can't haul much refuse in a TJ and 3.5 hours one way is a long way to tow a five' by ten' trailer. Any suggestions.....I haven't attended the clean-up before.

    Yes, same weekend. Ive gone and haven't taken a trailer before too. Just bring some work gloves and trash bags and be ready to help. There is always a handful of trailers for the big stuff.

    These are a wide variety of trail widths.

    We have increased our adoption area to over 36,000 acres this year and are working to get Oceana County Road Commission to begin an Adopt-A-Road program like the one that the Muskegon CRC operates.

    If you have a pick up, just bring it without the trailer. Easier to turn it around on dead end trails.

    Jeeps with small utility trailers work well too. Like you would use for hauling snowmobiles or a riding lawn mower.

    Much bigger than that and it starts to get difficult to get turned around.

    Most trash dumpers seem to prefer to dump out of sight.
    For us, that usually means the dead ends are worse than the through trails (which can be pretty bad).

    As soon as the Two Trackers get a few more details nailed down we'll get the flyer posted up.


    *** ALSO, look for a MUCH easier and faster registration process this year too! ***

    We were expecting around 100-150 volunteers last year and imagine our joyous surprise to have 250-300! We've ironed out a few things to accommodate the larger number of people.

    Do not worry if you can not bring a trailer, sure it helps but you can tag along with someone else that has a truck or trailer. Plus many of the items you will load are better moved with 2 people. See you there
