one thing i cant stand!

Postby Teufel_Hunden » Wed May 25, 2011 10:27 am

I'm known as an avid off roader/explorer, and have been known to cut trail here in yuma in my younger days but one thing i cant stand is littering.

this last weekend i guided a group of about 7 side x sides through the laguna mts here in yuma this last saturday night. well toward the end of the 30+ mile trip we all stopped to bs about the trail when i spotted a couple of guys toss their empty beer cans into a bush. one of the wives in the trip scolded them telling them to pick up their trash and they did. but they were asked if they were doing that the whole trip and of course they did. that was the end of the trip, i told everyone how to get home following canal roads from the lake and explained to them why they shouldnt litter, just before i turned around and back tracked the whold road to clean up after them. i found broken bottles and cans and i must have cleand up AT LEAST 2 cases. that was what i spotted with my aux lights...
i cursed them the whole ride back and they're lucky i like to putt around the desert but I just dont like to clean up after adults. i hope their vehicles break down.

One of the few things that pisses me off to no end. There is no excuse whatsoever for littering. None. It's simply arrogant and imbecilic to expect someone else to pick up that trash.

Right on Dan.
I'm pissed at myself the other day....
I was driving home with a load of groceries.
Up ahead was a pickup truck with an old appliance in the back... A stove I think.
I didn't think anything of it until I saw him turn off onto a dirt road.
I drove on by as it occurred to me that he was going to dump his load in the desert instead of driving 5 miles further and paying $5 to take it to the county landfill.
I got so mad just thinking about it.... Mad at myself for not turning around to take pictures of his actions. Mad that I didn't call the sherif....My load of groceries pushed me homeward and I'm pissed that I didn't turn around to get that a$$hole busted!
