Title: 2012 Fourpeaks cleanup
Post by: crgeorge on October 01, 2012, 10:50:46 AM
Hi all. I wanted to remind everyone about the Fourpeaks cleanup this year. It will be held on Saturday November 3rd. Meeting time is 8AM. To find the cleanup site, travel North on highway 87 to the Fourpeaks turn off, East of highway 87 between mile markers 203 and 204 on forest service road 143. The cleanup will be staged approx 1/2 mile from highway 87 in the Fourpeaks staging area. Volunteers will be entered into a raffle which will be drawn at noon. Sponsors for the raffle include: Desert Rat, Rigid Industries, Asfir 4x4, Sierra Expeditions, Expeditioneers, and Hero Offroad to name a few. Children will also be entered into a special raffle. Please bring lunch, shovels, rakes, gloves, sunscreen, small trailers to help haul trash, and any other equipment that may be useful. This year, we need help with contractor grade trashbags. Also, maybe there is someone out there who wouldn't mind helping to sponsor lunch? If you have any questions, please PM me here or email me at chad@copperstate4wheelers.com
Thank you, Chad.

I've got that weekend off, so I will definitely be there.  Hopefully we can get some more AZXC folks out there.  For those of you that don't know, we have been attending this cleanup for the last 5 years.

The Four Peaks area still has quite a bit of offroading available - even though some of the trails near Saguaro lake have closed, there are still plenty of trails to run - as long as we do our part to keep them clean, and TreadLightly!

Hope to see you all there.

Nope, can't make either... new shift is 6pm to 6am, unfortunately for the next 3 months. I'm off Veterans Day weekend though if there's any interest on going out then, for those who can't make the 3 day-er going that same weekend.

Hello everyone, the Fourpeaks cleanup is quickly approaching and still on schedule rain or shine. I will be onsite Friday night and spending Saturday night out there as well. We may even take a trail ride after the cleanup. Anyways, as a reminder, To find the cleanup site, travel North on highway 87 to the Fourpeaks turn off, East from highway 87 between mile markers 203 and 204 on forest service road 143. Our staging area is approximately 1/2 mile from the highway in the Fourpeaks staging area. Meeting time is 8am. We will work until approximately 2pm, lunch is at 1230 (not provided, sorry guys) and raffle to follow at 130pm. When volunteers register, they will get 1 raffle ticket, including the children. Volunteers will also have the opportunity to buy raffle tickets for a Smitty Bilt 8000 pound winch we will be raffling off. Tickets are $5 each, or 5 for $20. We will have a brief safety meeting before heading out. Please remember to bring closed toe shoes, rakes, shovels, gloves, water, sunscreen, hats, lunch, and whatever else you might find to be helpful. We would also gladly accept any donations for trash bags. Contractor bags in the 50 count are $23 at Home Depot. Small utility trailers are also welcomed as we will use them to bring trash back to the staging area. I want to acknowledge our sponsors: Desert Rat offroad and truck centers, Hero Offroad, Rigid Industries, Asfir 4x4, Expeditioneers, and Mel's Napa. If you have any questions, please contact me at chad@copperstate4wheelers.com. Thank you to everyone in advance. We really appreciate your participation and could not do this without you.  Chad.

Anything that needs to be brought?

Ok, so I am in for the cleanup as well, I spoke with Chad (cleanup coordinator and President of copperstate4wheelers, funny we actually work at the same hospital together where I ran in to him, small world) he mentioned they would probably do a trail run after lunch and raffle was over, he mentioned running Rocker Panel Pass (not 100%) which I have never run and it is rated at a 3.5. I do not currently have my winch but Im hoping with good driving and a good spotter here and there when needed I'll be fine (no winch needed). Hopefully Ted and/or others can join in on the trail run as well and show that our X's belong (haha), last years cleanup was a lot of Jeeps and some FJ's and some built LandCruisers and even a Lexus LandCruiser equivalent.

Anyways, see you all there!

Oh, just a heads up, if you have 32 gallon trash cans/dumpsters they came in real handy last year instead of just dragging a trash bag around, so if you have those bring them along as well.

Family time as Saturday is now my Sunday with work.   Have fun at both the clean up and trail run after!

^^^You werent the only one, it was just Marshall Stone and I with 2 Scottsdale girls(lol) representing the Xterra's, we did our part in the cleanup and of course the cleanup totaled 12 tons of trash again with plenty more still there. I stayed and did a small trail run after with a group from Upper Sycamore to Lower and a Cherokee blew a power steering pump mid way through so he got strapped out... Damn Yeeeps! lol

No but seriously though a lot of the guys I wheeled with were from Copperstate 4wheelers, they were a great group and fun to wheel with, will definetely wheel with them again in the future.

Sorry I missed this.  Had a late night on Friday night.  Slept at a friend's place in Tempe.  Overslept, and when I woke up, found out that my battery was dead.  By the time I got back to my house, it was noon, and I figured the cleanup would be over by the time would be able to get out there.

Scottsdale girls - one is Marshall's GF, and the other one is L-Ray (Tim's ex-wife).

Ted I knew that (sorry we missed ya), it was just a joke out there cleaning up Marshall was giving them shit for being Scottsdale girls (since they both have addresses in Scottdale) out in the desert picking up trash, just a little inside joke for the day.
