The last weekend in January, we joined forces with our other Primedia 4Xbrethren for a giant cleanup in Stoddard Valley OHV area near Barstow, CA. It was a huge success: we had fun, everyone that came out and joined in seemed to have fun, the weather wasn't too bad, and we moved so much trash off the desert in just three hours that we had to get two extra dumpsters after the event was over!
We underestimated, thinking only four dumpsters would be enough, and we didn't realize how much trash there actually was out there, and how sick you were of seeing it. Us too. People that litter suck. We're glad that so many of you were willing to lend your time to clean up after those careless few who are no friends of ours.
Saying you don't like littering and doing something about it are two very different things, and we were stoked to see so many people taking action. And, just for the record, we didn't see the Sierra Club or Earth First out there picking up any trash with us. I guess it's enough for their members to write a $10 check and feel righteous in doing so.
We'll be having another one soon, so stay tuned, and if you don't hear of anything, then write us a letter, send us an e-mail, give us a call, and hopefully we'll have somethin' to tell you about.
