Mark Twain National Forest Clean Up Run

Sponsored by MWJT/SIJA/MRJT

October 23, 2004

Meet at Potosi Citgo, Intersection 21 & 8 at 10:00am

Will travel to Axle Breaker and split up into smaller groups

 

Please join us for this multi-club event. We are working with the cooperation of the Potosi Forest Service.

The Forest Service is dropping off a dumpster on the pad at Axle Breaker for us to fill up... so LETS FILL IT UP!!

We might NOT be able to pick up tires... there's LOTS of tires to pick up... Will change the web site when we know for sure.

Safety:

There's lots of stuff to cut yourself on, and to slip and fall. Here's the Forest Service Guidelines

Be careful of Meth Lab garbage. IF YOU RUN INTO THIS STUFF, LEAVE IT ALONE AND NOTE THE LOCATION SO WE CAN NOTIFY THE FOREST SERVICE. Here's their guidelines. They emphasized to leave any propane tanks alone (they can rupture and have gasses inside that will kill you)

If you have a GPS, please download these waypoints and tracks.. Please note... Waypoints 1 to 46 were actually viewed... other waypoints were mapped by the Forest Service... if we have the chance.. lets hit them too! A map will posted soon with additional waypoints.
