Default state trail rant

so my buddies and i go out on the local state trails running around Saturday night. We head over to one of our favorite spots that we call the "2 Holes" and we find like a dozen ATV tires and Dirt bike tires thrown in and around the holes.


STATE LAND IS NOT A LAND FILL

we loaded the tires up in a buddies pick-up and brought them to my work and threw them in with our scrap tires.............Fucking Tards

no wonder shit is constantly getting closed, does anybody else pick stuff as they wheel or drive around on trails

Yep, all it takes is one fukc up to screw things up for everyone.....Yes I pick up anything I see on the trails that God didn't put there...bottles, cans, cigarette butts, paper, plastic, building scraps including lots of nails, used baby diapers, bait containers, fishing line, :chiefwoohaw: :chiefwoohaw: :chiefwoohaw: . Good job on picking up the trash it was the right thing to do.

You should join us Two Trackers when we do our annual trail clean up over in Twin Lakes. We clean the same area every year filling 3 40 yd dumpsters and pulling countless tires and shingles out the woods along with a ton of other crap. Very sad that people treat our land as their own dumping ground.

The other trouble that people don't understand or care about is what it takes to take care of this when we find it. DEQ had to get involved to make sure that the barrels weren't leaking and no ground contamination occured.:stan3:

the oil thing seems so stupid. it seems like it would be more work to haul it to the woods than it would be to just dispose of it properly in this day and age. but then again people are stupid.

My roommate load up his pickup every time we go out. Be it old refrigerators, tires, shotgun shells, pieces of old scrap metal/old cars the list goes on and on. anything we can lift and transport we take out. Anything to big we find somebody with a trailer and a winch.

Anyone should always pickup anything that can be whenever they are out on the trail. Leave it better then you found it, ya know.

We do a few clean up runs around the year up in the Keweenaw. Amazing what kind of shit you find!

The Two Trackers have hauled 650 cubic yards of trash, over 2,000 tires, and over 100,000 pounds of shingles out of the woods in Muskegon county over the last 9 years.

I haven't seen that volume of dumping anywhere else I've ever wheeled.

In State, or out.

Can't we just shoot them when we catch them???:tonka:

but a deer motion activated camera on their favorite dumping grounds.

I pick up all kinds of stuff cig butts especially annoy me. South Higgins Lake state park is a good example. Beautfiful park spotlessly clean except for the thousands of cig butts in the sand. My one year old son kept picking them up.

That would be to humane. I say we douse them in gas and set them a blaze.
