As noted, I am on the Ukiah side. Anyway, a coupla years ago I dragged my long-bed Datsun halfback trailer up to the obstacle course as part of a clean-up run. The run was started by the local 4x4 club, with participation from the club in Sonoma county. There was quite a few rigs (30 or more) involved. BLM even let us spot a mobile cargo dumpster down at the riverbed on the Lakeport side.

Everybody brought trash bags, the local club worked with someone who provided a bunch of those pincher style extended hand grip things that let you pick up cans and such without bending over. Different groups of rigs hit different trails and collected everything from beer cans to hot water heaters used as targets (as mentioned in the above post). At the end of their day of fun, all the trash was either brought to my trailer in bags, or taken to the dumpster, depending on which way you went home.

My trailer was literally filled to overflowing, and the dumpster was completely filled over the course of two days. Needless to say, we made a difference in the amount of litter spread all over Cow. This is the kind of stuff that keeps us all in the good graces of the BLM.

Might be time to organize such an event again. If we are gunna clear the trails of pin-striping brush, might as well kill two birds with one stone. Could be a hell of a fun event. BBQ at the obstacle course, prize for most trash collected, etc...

Just a thought...
My wife and I were thinking the same thing!

All in favor of Burlbrook48 organizing a clean up crew with BLM setting up a dumpster raise their hand.

Sounds like a heck of an idea! I have a small 4' x6' utility trailer that I got to pull behind my jeep for camp stuff and my pontoon boat. I would bring that to haul stuff down to a dumpster. Make as many trips as I could in a day.

This is the kinda whiny crap I would expect to see in the JK forum. We drive rough riding, leaking, gas guzzling CJ's. Rattle can it and throw it in your Jeep.
