    Well, since the truck is not needed, I can be there bright and early instead of after twelve. I will hook up with you all in Hancock. See you all in the morning... er... later this morning.

    Dennis, if you check this before you go, could you send directions to me (in case I miss you at McDonalds).

    It was great to meet those of you who came. Hopefully, the next time we meet, our feet will be firmly placed under water and not sliding down hill in garbage, humus and mud. I'm hoping that a shower will prevent anything we unearthed from growing on me(good luck to all of you).

    Now, how about renaming that stretch of water....

    All I can think of is Deer bones. I can still see them. Hey, will an alpaca keep my lawn trimmed so I can fish more?

    Hi guys,

    Just got back from the float my float trip. We floated the East Branch and it was slow for the most part.

    There was a flurry of Isonychias about 4:30 and we had some chances. A couple of nice fish we did NOT hook and a small one we did!

    Great day on the river. Thanks for helping with the cleanup.

    Talk to you all soon,

    Jim

    Hi guys,

    It was fun!

    Remember, Saturday the 18th we can use help at Junction Pool to do knotweed stuff at 9:00 am if anyone will be in Hancock!

    Thanks again,

    Jim

    We'll have to rename the pool from the 'Trash Pool' or 'The Washing Machine Pool' to something else now. How about, "The CarPool" ... Hell, we could have built a new car with all of the car parts we found in there!

    Who showed up? Cingras, Future Fanatic, WB Catechumen, Jim Serio, Pat (Jim's wife), Mike M., & Myself.

    A few of the items found:
    .Car Door
    .Car Gastank
    .Car Transmission
    .Car Tires (Many came with custom rims)
    .The door for the bed of a pickup.
    (We really weren't far off from actually building a new car.)
    .Washing Machine
    .Refridgerator
    .House Door
    .Box Spring
    .Multiple Deer bones & skulls
    ...and other trash.


    From left to right: Future Fanatic, WB Catechumen, MikeM, Cingras, and Myself.


    Cingras giving new meaning to the 'Double Haul'. The hill is pretty steep. Luckily someone brought a good, strong, long rope with them. It really helped.


    This is one of many loads of trash we took out.

    I'll post more pics later on... and I'll make the ones already posted a little smaller.

    Well, I'm a sucker for alliteration, so how about these as some possible new names:

    Deer Rib Run or,
    Rolling Rock Run or,
    Dirty Diaper Drift (of course those diapers are just a memory)or,
    Glass Path Pool or,
    Stove Pipe Pool...

    Any others?

    Cingras53, remember, we're really not sure they were ALL deer bones; we did find some clothes mixed in with some of them...
    Alpacas would keep the grass down, but you'd still have to mow the weeds.

    NEFF Run

    It was good to put a few more faces to names while getting a real good workout and returning a small part of the river back to what it should be.

    Thankfully no one was hurt- Dennis, I don't know how you stayed so clean after sliding a good 20 feet down the hill.

    Maybe we can do something like that once or twice a year. Doesn't matter which river.

    I'd like to send a thanks to John O'Conner from Crane's Restaurant for getting the dumpster and donating $25 towards the tipping fee.
    I don't know where the rest of the money is coming from.

    Thanks to Jim S. for his part in coordinating the project.
    (Jim- Probably won't be around Sat., I will be up north Thurs-Sun unless the water is too high )

    Question authority particularly when they try to convince you that 2+2= Anything but 4

    Ha... You saw that? I didn't think anyone saw that!

    I'm not sure where Crane's is, but maybe we can get an address and put a little plug at the top of the page for a month?

    Jim, I have to see what my schedule is like next weekend (it looks good). I think I'll be able to help out.

    Jon, Once or twice a year is good for me. Maybe I can create an html page... Someone can submit a river for cleanup and we can go in and take care of it. I'll look into getting some 'NO DUMPING' signs.

    In the words of Johnny Cash..It was a 56, 57 , 58 , 59 60 automobile...I took it one piece at a time.

    After seeing your picture FF, I believe the backhoe stories... If we ever meet up, I will have my firearm hidden and at the ready!!!!

    Well. aren't you the perceptive one Mr. OXlair...

    I could give a shit about cleaning up garbage... The only reason I went was to make sure that those other chumps thought those bones were DEER bones....the only reason I "took up" flyfishing was to have access to my "dump". It was shortly after this close call "cleanup" event that I bought the backhoe and the 120 acres... no more "garbage" cleanups for me. I dispose of MY garbage 6 feet under...
