Post Pickup

Where do I begin. It was a truly epic day. With what we thought was going to be a rainy day I hoped for a turn out similar to last year at BEST.
Instead we had twice the volunteers and three times the trash cleaned up. A preliminary count shows 500 People came and over 20 Tons of trash were picked up.

Thank you, thank you, thank you! You the volunteer are all that really matters. I love you!

You made this a truly great day. You showed folks that there are a LARGE majority of responsible outdoor enthusiasts that care.

I was there in one of the areas cleaned up along with several Nissan Off Road members, Arizona Xterra Owners members and a Toyota Landcruiser Club member who decided to collect trash with us Nissan folk as he could not find his own club.

I wish I had taken a little time to drive the extent of the clean up end to end. Is there a map somewhere with the clean up areas marked out on it? I would love to post it on my flickr account in several Arizona groups and on several forums along with any statistics. fangars

We were up there for the first time a few months ago. And it made me almost cry at how bad things where with all the rubbish. It is such a beautiful place and for people to trash it so badly with no regard for the wildlife as well as the people who go there to enjoy such beauty, was a sock to me. If I would have known about this pick up day I would have defiantly been there. I am sorry I was not but I will make sure to keep track for the next one. Please keep up the good work and Thank you all who participated !!!
