One Man’s Trash: Week 29 Report

WEEK 29: Allens Lane & Lincoln Drive to Carpenter’s Woods

shart29_haul0

Y’know, because Devil’s Pool is such a problem spot in the summer, I often bypass it on my trash hikes because there’s way too much for one person to haul out at once. Being the onset of the dog days of August, of course the Pool is at its peak of popularity and population, and the amount of litter at this incredible natural place is frustrating and infuriating. Maddening, you might say. And still, deep in the woods away from computers, the internet troll resides. (See photo at right, latest t-shirt added to collection.)

NOTES AND OBSERVATIONS
– First hike with new Grip & Grab trash grabber — IT RULES. Thanks, PPR!
– This was a particularly nasty week, what with used diapers tossed in the woods and a used condom. While I’ve found condom wrappers, hard to believe it took me eight months to find the first actual condom. (And of course it was near Devil’s Pool.)
