    Default Cito/ Earthday

    Hope everyone took advantage of the day set aside to help your communities. Today was Bowdoinham Community Clean-Up. Two of FuddsGirls picks up trash along Maine St. We wore our CITO shirts from last year and got some questions and comments . Glad we got out...

    I didn't have much time today but I went all the way to the top of West Pitch, way above where K-Goddess's cache is, and cleaned up there. I don't like tourists to see how the locals treat our environment. Unfortunately there is never a shortage of litter there. Last week I ran into a woodchuck with a Pepsi cup stuck on its head. Luckily is was a paper cup and it came off after a while.

    Thumbs up The Maine Crew

    Tat, kayakerinme and I were in Pelham NH today. We started the clean up on 150 acres, in the center of Pelham. They had removed 9 cars and countless tons of trash and junk. The effort will continue for months. It felt good to know we made a difference. We also saw Team Afrofish and the Hasbell crew. Thanks to all who got out today and made a difference.

    I was maintaining my section of the Appalachian Trail today removing debris. Does that count?

    How bad was it this year Rick?
    A friend of mine hiked Bigalow this week and said she must have counted 100 blowdowns.

    I had to drive to western New Hampshire and back yesterday, and didn't even get a chance to do any caching!

    But I did note that a LOT of sections of the New Hampshire "Adopt-a-Highway" program were being cleaned.

    Too bad we don't have a better program like that in Maine.

    I never reached my section. I had to stop less then a 1/4 mile from it because I hit snow. But the section I had to hike through did not look to bad. I am hoping mine is better though. I am scheduling another trip for 13 May. I did clean up some of the section I hiked through though.
