Update from Cleanup 7/15/17

Copied this from a friend who originally posted it on Facebook about 4:30 p.m.  on 7/15 Oregon time.

Was at the site this morning. Generally things are looking pretty cleaned up.... meaning 'away from the trash collection areas (which are in full blown sorting/separating mode). But there is still a LOT of re-naturalization and 'micro-trash-collecting' work to do. When I asked "Are more people needed?" there was a number of opinions expressed. The short answer is YES.... IF you are pretty self-sufficient AND could show up REAL quick... like in the next 24 to 36 hours, or less. BUT if you couldn't do that... if it would be several days before you could arrive... you should pass. In other words... for the next 3 or 4 days... more help would be great. Personally, if you do come, I suggest you check in with Jai Hi to get oriented. He seems to understand what is needed quite well.


  1. I'll share where gets the most reads/views luvin U and what you do..

  2. Thank you for the update.

  3. ready to bike ride down there to help in the next two days... would appreciate a ride from hood river area to john day... mostly to look for my lost cell phone in a black box with some wire wraps, but I'd love to help clean up!

  4. I love you clean up crew!!! Thank you for being on top of it when so many are careless. I will be back in a few years when my babies are bigger.

    Ps if you find my white sandal with blue sole or my kiddos "rainbow" sandal I will grab it somehow so it doesn't have to be in a land fill.

    I know y'all are too busy, jussayin ��

  5. many blessings is zacmonstar still at clean up? does he have a ride home for himself and tuba?


I look forward to comments that avoid racist, sexist, homophobic, and/or other 'ism' language that does not advocate violence.
