2nd Annual Farmington Clean Up

We are planning another clean-up in Choke Cherry Canyon, for Saturday June 14th starting at 8-ish am and lasting until noon. We are currently working with the local BLM (Bill Papich) and they are providing gloves, shovels, rakes,buckets, dumpsters, and everything necessary except trucks and people. The area is amazing for wheeling, but is unfortunately destroyed by trash dumping and misuse.
The BLM was impressed with the way last years' event was handled and with the effort that was put into cleaning up before last years' TTORA Takeover and have REQUESTED the assistance of TTORA and other 'wheelers in the area to help maintain and PRESERVE the area for recreation.
Anyone who can attend and offer a hand is strongly encouraged to.

This is an opportunity to get active in preserving our right to 'wheel and to show that we do take care of the land we use for the sport we love so much, so make some time and help support our efforts to keep trails open!!!!!

After we are done taking care of business everyone is free to hit the trails of their choice. Most of us that are attending will be there from Fri June 13th to Sun June 15th.

Please come out and join us and help support a great OHV are, as well as our sport!

If you need directions, or have any questions please ask here or feel free to PM me.

If someone could pm me a few days before, I can make it. I don't hardly come over to this section and I will probably forget unless someone throws a wrench at me.

Working graveyard shift that morning but who needs sleep!!

More info

Description:
Chokecherry canyon is a very unique place in that buggies, very modified,
slightly modified, and stock trucks can run the same trail and everyone
will have fun; optional lines is what makes chokecherry amazing. Donít
want to do an obstacle? Go around. Canít make an obstacle? Try another
30 feet over. This area really is a huge playground for any type of
vehicle.
The cleanup is going to be Saturday, but if people wanted to come out
early, to get the most out of the wheeling trip, by all means come out
early and we can show you around. Last yearís cleanup lasted about 4-5
hours, which left a lot of time to go wheeling afterwards. Sunday you can
go wheeling as well if you feel so inclined.

Meeting time will be 8:00am-noonish Saturday Morning at the staging area
(directions below). We will be splitting up in groups to hit different
areas that need to be cleaned up, which will be announced at staging on Sat morning.. After the cleanup, we will all gather
around and decide what trails to run and what trails everyone wants to do.

Staging will be located at the entrance to chokecherry canyon, which is at
the intersection of pinion hills and glade rd. (a large dumpster will be
there).

Map of staging location:
http://maps.google.com/maps?f=q&hl=e...29011&t=p&z=15

Direction to Camp:
From Pinion Hills Rd.
Turn off on CR1980 aka Glade Rd (chokecherry canyon)
There has never been a sign or anything to mark it whatsoever. But there
are land marks.
* It's a canyon bottom at the base of a pretty big hill.
* it's on the right (north) and paved
* It immediately curves to right and becomes gravel/dirt
* there are street lights if it's dark.
* there is large wash on the right (east)
Stay on the main road. At ~+2miles you'll pass the "Glade run rec
area/BLM" sign
You will then cross over the wash, then cross back after a ways.
2 TOTAL WASH CROSSINGS
After the 2nd crossing you'll come to a fairly large, well used "T"
intersection on the left.
PASS IT!
Take the next trail that peels off to the left. It's just a few yards past
the intersection.
You'll pop out in brown spring. Which is kind of like a parking lot
surrounded by a big slick rock bowl. That's were we'll be camped.
Total distance is ~3 miles from pinon hills

Map of where camp is located:

Some pics of the area, as well as last years clean-up.

Are we gonna pile the trash into our trucks and haul it out to the dumpster?

If so, I can bring my deuce and a half out to make fewer trips. It will hold a few truck loads of garbage.

Let me know.

Yes, that's the plan! We will all meet at the mouth of the canyon and then split into groups and hit designated areas in need. In most cases the leader of the group will have his/her tow rig with trailer as the main hauling rig (alot of people have buggys or rigs that won't haul alot of trash). That being said if you would like to bring your BIG rig you can, but if it's going to be a hassle don't worry about it. We'll have plenty of tow rigs with trailers.
The trails themselves can be cleaned up as we 'wheel them throughout the weekend (they are not that bad)..Sat morning we're consentrating on the Canyon itself as well as roads getting to the trails. We have a group that is going to meet with the BLM and go over the trouble areas here in a couple weeks so we know exactly were we need to be.
We have two 40 yard dumpsters to fill so we need all the help we can get here folks!!

actionJackson just posted up some stuff on his site about his trip to the farm a couple weeks ago. http://www.actionjackson.com/buggy/t...?TrailRunID=10
and there is a thread in the LC part about it too. /forum/toyota-land-cruiser/680905-farmington-authority.html

looks like good stuff.

That just makes me sick!! I'm assuming that's just the spots that Bill wants us to concentrate on. If that's the case how bad is Chokecherry road?
We need to talk to Bill at the clean-up to see if we can't get a new sign made letting these low life pieces of shit know that we will no longer tolerate the dumping.
Those pics just goes to show how much participation we are going to need this year. Thanks for posting them, as well as everything you've done to get this clean-up going Kev!!

If I can get out of work on Friday and drive, I'll be there. Visiting family as well also.

Born and raised in Farmington. That makes me sad that the canyon is getting raped like that. It used to be very clean up to about 1998 when all the asshats came out of thier holes and Fucked it all up. No thanks to the comps. and the current club out their "Cliff Hangers" don't give a shit any more. Just a bunch of rich ass self rightous shits that think they are better then anyone else.

Im sorry for going off like this. Stepping off my soap box now.

I'd like to participate. I gotta scout that I'd like to try on the trails also, it's not road legal (yet), or exactly safe (no seatbelts or roll protection). Guess I could just show up and help, and avoid the jehovahs witness knocking on my door at the same time. Lokkin foward to it.

Right on man! Honestly even if you don't have a rig, there will be empty seats. It won't be a problem!
