I want to express a special thanks to Amanda for becoming a regular litter warrior with me. No question, it's disheartening to keep at this week after week, all the trash that finds its way onto the roadsides. The more hands there are to go after it, the quicker it gets done and we can get on with interesting or fun stuff. Today we had Rosita helping to speed the process; thanks, Rosita. We got two of the three sections of road all cleaned up. And by the way, we also clean out the recycling bin at Horner Forest Trail parking area. Hey, folks, those bins are for recyclables, not trash.
Does anybody need a lug wrench? That was our prize litter item today. Amanda and I covered the north end from Newby's Bridge Road to the Swift Creek bridge. The heavy rain of the past week flushed out litter that has been hiding, out of sight on previous cleanups. Such is usually the case when the ditches fill with rushing water.
Another day, another bag of litter, and the road, at least the north section, is once again presentable.
