TRASH AT THE
Rasor Road - People trashing the desert
I am very sad to report
that our trip to Rasor Road on October 3-4 2008 was interrupted by a major
clean up at the Big Trees. There was a group of people (we know who they are
and will be watching for them) that camped at the trees and this is what
they left behind.
OC Keith, Patrick, Paul & Terry
cleaned up all the trash and hauled it out of there. These trees are private
party and belong to Terry Young "Owner of the gas station". He would
really appreciate it if you see this happening to come to the gas station
and report it.
This is exactly the thing that BLM and
other agencies are looking for to pass laws to close the desert. We can all
help by either reporting these idiots... or just cleaning it up. It is not
that hard for all of us to bring home one extra bag of trash per trip.
Next time you are on the sand dunes...
and your kids are there... pick up some empty beer cans and throw them in
your Rhino. Teach by actions. Our kids will all start doing this and we will
have a clean desert again.
In closing, I must say that I have met
a lot of people at Rasor Road and I have never seen anyone's camp look like
this. There is a lot of great people that camp there and enjoy the desert.
To that... I tip my hat to all of you.
