I know. You get the left side I'll get the right!
Actually the Sheriff is going to handle the burnt out FJ Cruiser. They have to check to see if it was used in a crime or stolen. (pretty likely)
There is so much trash around this area there will be plenty to pick up though.

A couple of updates!

www.goodgun.org has donated some money to the cause as a giveaway! As well as some members coming to help. I'm excited to see responsible shooters step up.

Oakley has given some sun glasses to give away.

The Tacoma Territory, Xterra Owners Club , Copper state cruisers, and Virtual Jeep Club have stepped up to make it an official run of theirs!

The Copper State Cruisers have stepped up with a giant grill that can cook 80 burgers at a time! YIKES thats a lot of cow. mmmm!

Some folks are bringing a rake if they can. Its not a neccessity, but it will help with the shells and glass being picked up!

The Forest Service is going to bring a couple of Roll Off Dumpsters too!

Tim

KTMSER,
Thanks for the support bro. I'll save some burgers for ya!



I know the majority of trash isn't by any dirt bike or 4x4ers, but its a great opportunity to do something good, give us a better name as a sport and make it so we don't have to look at this crap!


Also, REI is donating some clif bars. I love those things!

I hope you guys don't mind me posting the logo's. I want to give credit and thanks to the companies helping out.
I wanted to thank Border Construction Specialties for stepping up big with the giant grill. Brandon, the president of Copper State Cruisers has gotten burgers and the use of this trailer sized grill donated for the clean-up! Thank YOU!



Overland Journal and Overland Video has contributed a free subscription (or renewal for you current subscribers) and two Overland Video DVD's to the give-away. The pot has been sweetened!

Damn, bro. this is turning into a real legitimate event...

I'll have to hook up with my bud from Copper State Cruisers and make it out there. Thanks for all your hard, preliminary work.
