I might mention in a 4 hour time frame, our trail cleanup filled a large rolloff dumpster. We removed lots of trash, tires, an truck bed trailer, a lumber rack (?), and one burnt out car. Of course, that was on a Saturday before the holiday weekend was over. What WAS nice to see, ATV users that weren't part of the cleanup picking things up as they found them. We spoke with lots of users of the recreation area and many joined in with no hesitation. When I picked up a large chunk of plywood, we found a small rattlesnake. We had a couple small children with us and we took the opportunity to teach a little respect for the critters. Pushed a little dirt at him to get him rattling for the kids, but then he turned away and we let him be. He was a cute little guy though.

And, the cats were plugged in the Explorer. When we knocked the guts out, the truck became a real power house. I am waiting to hear about mileage results though. Should hear about that tomorrow. I'm hoping to hear better than 19... 20 would be better.

Edit... I will add that I have ordered a replacement cat setup for the truck...
