    Clean Up 2010 Pick Up a Mountain - Sept 2010

    PNW4WDA Region 4
    Pick Up A Mountain
    Report & photos by Clay Graham / Eastern Washington Adventures

    At 8 AM on September 18th, 2010 we had the driver's meeting at Jim Sprick Park for the Pick Up A Mountain clean-up.
    Here are a some pictures of the event.


    Drivers Meeting














    The clean-up run.

    Yakima/Kittitas Forest Watch aired down at Jim Sprick Park and drove across the road onto FS1701 to headed up the mountain.
    Joining us on the run was three rigs from the Vancouver 4 Wheelers, one rig from Washington Virtual Jeep Club and hards91xj that stayed on the roads with his Toyota pickup so he would not get damage.



    We stopped at the camping area at FS530 to pick it up.


















    We moved on up to the 4W694 trail head.






    At 4W670 we drove down to FS1701 and then back up onto 4W694.
















    We stopped off at Funny Rocks to clean it up and let some of the Vancouver Wheelers play some during lunch.


































    We moved on taking 4W695 to Moon Rocks.
















    Moving on down the mountain.




    Turning onto FS1701 we stopped to regroup.


    At FS530, we turned up toward Bald Mountain. We turned down 4W675.








    Down on FS1702 we regrouped before the long drive back down to Hwy410.


    Back at Jim Sprick Park we found out that hards91xj some how rolled his Toyota off of a forest road.
    He should have just took the trail and he would have gotten less damage.

    Activities

    At the park there were a lot of fun things to do.

    The kids raced Jeeps.


    There was a big raffle.


    Corn shucking contest.




    Divorce course.


    Pot luck.

    Some of our groups clean-up crew.












    People took shelter from he rain for the raffle.




    There was a dance after the raffle.


    Sunday morning.

    Guido looking for Rain-x. lol


    The kids playing with the prizes they won the day before.




    Sid won the Inspirational Award.


    Pancake breakfast.


    Volunteers cooking for a lot of people.












    The forest is a cleaner place now.


    This was a great event thanks to all who helped make it happen.

    No we had some issues last year over the high camp fee. The park at first wanted $15 per vehicle so two nights would have cost me $90 with the tow rig, Jeep and wife's car (she had to bring up after she got off work). They did end up dropping the price some after a lot of protest from the PNW4WDA since they are the one who cleans this park every year. This year we were able to camp for $5 a night per camper.

    Ther should not have been much trash around teh 530 rd, we camped there untill Wed. and picked up after others left and burnt there trash in teh fire pit.

    We were up ther elk hunting and kept our eye our for thrash. Picked soem up but we were mainly lookig for elk

    Thanks to all that showed up to help out on the clean up

    My son's friend was also at teh "Clean Up teh Beach" in Westport and they reported, a lot less trash the years before.
