    What's going on?
    As was brought to our attention by Lichen, Butcher Jones is becoming increasingly more trashed by people abusing our privileges to use our resources. A lot of the BLM land has been closed around AZ (and the country for that matter) for this very behavior. Butcher Jones is a great spot for getting some weekend action in by everyone, both the 4x4 and PreRunner crowd. I'd like to see if we can get some volunteers to help clean up some of the trash left behind by people and help prevent a closure of this resource. It would be nice to try and maybe make a regular routine out of it if things go well. If anyone has connections with other groups (jeeps, TTORA, ect) feel free to invite them as well, the more the better.

    At the end I think it'd be nice to setup a BBQ down at one of the coves and kick back for a few hours. I have one I can bring but it's kind of a pain to take apart... if someone else has an easier one that's willing to volunteer the use of it that'd be great.

    Location: Butcher Jones

    Initial meet up point: (drive to Butcher Jones as a group)
    Wendy's on Shea BLVD (just off highway 87)

    When?
    TBD (See poll). I won't be returning to AZ until after October 11th... so sometime after that :D The earlier we start the better, I'd like to toss out meeting at 9 at the meeting point. I opened up multiple voting on the poll to allow you to select all best dates to get a better feel.
    AZtacomaworld calendar on Google Calendar (I just threw this together to help prevent overlapping events. Not sure if this even works :notsure:)

    Suggested items to bring:

    • Gloves
    • Trash bags
    • Sunscreen
    • Water (plenty of it)
    • Backup food (powerbars, ect)
    • Recovery gear if you have it. I'm sure some of us will have at least some of the basics (straps, jacks, ect)
    • Any friends that might wanna help out :D
    • CB Radio if available
    Resource to help keep these lands open: http://www.treadlightly.org/

    Suggested Vehicle Requirements: (hope you guys don't mind me quoting from the other threads :D)

    • 4x4 or 4x2 with e-locker
    • 4x2 with LSD at the risk of obliterating your tires. It is not recommended, but it's up to you to make the decision should you want to run. Butcher Jones is as easy or as difficult as you wish to make it. See below:

    Volunteers: to sign up please PM me, or comment in this thread with being able to attend. Should something come up, give me a heads up ahead of time so I can adjust the list. I'll give my phone number for the members attending in case there's any issues day of, directions, ect.

    1. Kyouto42 (Jake)
    2. Lichen
    3. 06RedComa (Kyle)
    4. amaes (Alex)
    5. open
    6. open
    7. open (no limits, just populating data)
    *Italics and unbold is unconfirmed. All will be until the date/time is secured and final confirmation is set.

    Final Thoughts:
    If there are any more suggestions on equipment, dates, ect... please throw them out! Also, if anyone has a Chandler home address... they allow free dumping for residents. There may be other ways for it I just happen to know that from living there before.

    I'm in for a Saturday date.
    Also, might be worth mentioning what we plan on doing to BLM or AZG&F to see if we can either dump stuff at one of their locations or have a truck come out.
    Might score some free land passes as well.

    That's what the other is for... I figured I'd try to set up before the camping meet but we can do it after just as easily.

    Also if mid week is easier for people... that's possible to. I'll be off fri-sun through about oct 24th, after that sun-tues.

    Awesome, thanks!

    Yea, I'll add that to the list. The other bit is we can have multiple dates as well... I'm ok with going out a few times myself as I'm sure there will be plenty of work for more than one excursion out.

    Can I get a mod to add the following to the poll? Thanks

    For me, anything works. I figured something in and around 9-6 if that long. Probably mroe like 10-4 or 5 so people can get home while it's still light out. Temps shouldn't be to bad around that time. Completely open to suggestions though.

    Hey, been traveling back to AZ so I haven't been on the last few days. It's looking like dec works for more people. The only downside of that for me is I'm going to end up working every Saturday after about mid-november.. but no Sundays. Would anyone have any issues with shooting for a Sunday?
