Adopt A Highway April 2005

That’s right! One more time we are out cleaning up other peoples garbage.

On Saturday, April 2nd, we had a FINE representation of Tamers (thank you VERY much!) when 17 (count ’em!) Timber Tamers donned their groovey DOT supplied yellow hard hats and orange vests, and went strolling down the shoulder of route 2 west of Sultan, in search of the not-very-elusive wayward hunks of trash, debris, car parts, tire chunks, and other mementos of a decadent society littering the shoulder of the road. In full DOT style, while most of the Tamers picked up – SOMEBODY had to be sitting on his butt in a work truck with a flashing orange light sipping coffee. So – I felt myself equal to the task, knowing it would be a true bladder test – thermos full of coffee at the ready, orange light on the roof of the ‘Burb blinking, and acting as a buffer between traffic and Tamers, keeping us as safe as possible. It was a tough job, but someone had to do it. That took about 2-1/2 hours to do our assigned section of road – at which point all participants decided it was time to finish up and head off to attend to other things in their lives.

BUT – not until committing that there was another few hours worth of work ahead of us going eastbound into Sultan.
