    You people ROCK!



    Every year I'm AMAZED at your generosity and dedication to the trails and the event.

    I can't thank you enough for coming out!

    YOU are the TRUE environmentalists!



    Preliminary totals look like 150 yards of trash and 525 tires this year.

    I have to figure the shingle amount yet.

    That brings us to 900 cubic yards and 3,450 tires total for the event's run!

    That's AWESOME!



    Registrations were down roughly 17%, but with the economy in the crapper, that's a lot less loss than I thought we might see. I was worried we might see as much as a 50% reduction.

    But no, you care too much to let that happen.

    To be honest; I find it touching.



    This year, I would have NEVER imagined that 90 cubic yards of dumpster space wouldn't hold the trash from ONE teany, tiny, short, little, lousy piece of road!

    I have to laugh at myself for being a poor judge of space, I guess . . .

    I thought 3, 30 yard dumpsters would be enough for both the nasty road and the dead end counterpart (on the south side of that same little lake) to be completely cleaned.

    BOY! Was I wrong!

    I can DEFINITELY tell you were there, but there's still so much more to be done!

    There was a little dead end trail not far from the Area 10 Dumpsters that I have NEVER been down because the trash pile blocking it predates my having a driver's license. It's now open, so I went down it . . .

    Right to another area FILLED with crap!


    The amount of trash out there is absolutely U-N-B-E-L-I-E-V-A-B-L-E-!!!


    BUT!!!

    IT IS WORKING!

    The volunteers in Area 4 spent 2-1/2 hours driving every trail in their area - and didn't even find so much as an empty cigarette wrapper! That place was just as trashed as many of the roads in Area 10 (well maybe not quite THAT bad).

    Now? NOTHING BUT FOREST!

    SO, I guess that brings us to the question . . .


    Do we want to keep at it and go out again next year?
