    Cool April 20, 2019 | Oregon | Volunteer SOLV Trail Cleanup!

    Come be apart of the 8th year Gitout has been involved with the SOLV Trail Cleanup!

    When: April 20, 2019
    Where to Meet: Tillamook State Forest - Milepost 33 on Oregon Highway 6 (Turn South into ODOT Sandshed / registration area) - Gales Creek, OR
    Meet Time: 8:15am.

    Permits: Oregon ATV Permit (available at Shell gas station on hwy 6)
    Communication: 2 way radio / CB Radio / HAM
    Vehicle requirements: Runs & Drives (truck, trailer, car whatever)
    Items to Bring: Work Boots, Work Gloves, Water, Lunch (other stuff you could bring not required: Shovel, Bucket, Tarp, Litter Grabber)

    Details: Wear long pants, long sleeves, closed toe shoes, bring work gloves. This project will involve removal of some garbage / target shooting debris on forest service roads and trails.

    Everyone is welcome! We will be picking up trash along roads and trails. This is an excellent opportunity to meet new people and make a positive impact. Trail cleanup typically wraps up around 2pm. Not only does your participation help keep trails open and clean... all volunteer hours get logged and help ODF obtain funding for expanding trails and keeping current trails open.

    Make sure you make room in your rigs to haul trash...

    For those who want to stay late, there are trails to off road.

    I'll be there. This will give me a target date to getting my Jeep off jack stands by. Might be aggressive though. Otherwise, I'll hitch a ride.

    Unfortunately I will not be able to make it. Wish I could. Am retired so you think I would have all the time in the world. Not so. My weekends get booked up fast.

    There is no best vehicle. It depends on the terrain, tires, driver, luck, and lots of happenstance.

    Not up front. For now it will be a 4.0 with 5.38s. But if the 4.0 dies I can't say that I'll be sad to have to upgrade to an LS. But that would have to be a project for another time.
