It was a beautiful morning on the Mt Baker Hwy along the Nooksack River, miles 37-39.
By the numbers:
-Money, jewelry, lotto tickets, or anything of value found
-Hour commute time each way.
-Golf ball (May have been left in extra trash bags from last patrol.
-Orange safety flag displayed upside down along the highway. Unknown until a DOT driver stopped to share that knowledge. (I plead the 5th).
-Hours actual work time.
-Miles walked by each team.
-Months,or so until next Litter Patrol. (Make your reservations now)
-Volunteers (Gerry, Jennie, Steve, me)
-Bags of junk collected (not all full).
-Hours, door to door.
-Feet of old steel cable, pulled from the bushes. (Guard rail reinforcement?).
-Bicyclists grinding their way up the mountain.
-Minutes trying to come up with something for numbers eight through eighty-six.
-Miles put on the truck, door to door.
Thanks to all the volunteers this year who helped make picking up other people’s trash enjoyable.
