    Just checking if any NWFA members were out shooting in molalla last friday and happened to see a Taco Bell cup with collected brass in it?

    We were out sighting in rifles and then did brass collecting after we were finished in the dark.

    The place was kinda trashed more than normal. :(

    Where do you normally go? We always try to pick up more than what we shot plus some garbage, but it's hard to keep up with some times. It seems like summer is worse because of all the parties that happen.

    Is this the gravel pit out up the Molalla river area? I was out there this last weekend with my wife for an afternoon of shooting. (recently moved to the area, and recently found out about the place)

    It looked really tore up with all the garbage and junk. We talked a bit about trying to organize some people together to go up there with a trailer and some people some afternoon to clean it up.

    I understand how cool it is to shoot up yer old junk (TVs or whatever) but don't understand the mentality of the people that leave the crap behind.

    At any rate. I enjoy the area, and its only about 30 miles out for us, so we'd like to clean it up some. If there is any interest in that, lets see what we can do.. :)

    It seems like every gravel pit up there is trashed. On numerous occasions I've found peoples garbage withere name on it up there and have turned it in to the forestry department in town but haven't heard any of the results. VW Factor you can count me in any time just let me know when and where and ill try to round up a few more people.

    If you do schedule a clean-up day make sure and post it.
    I would like to help. I am wondering if some of the local 4x4 groups would pitch-in
    Maybe advertise at Wild Bills

    I'm in if it works for my schedule. Hopefully the area will see less traffic next summer, word is that they are closing the bridge for repairs on Dickey Prairie road just before you get to the Glen Avon bridge forcing a lot of people to take the long way around.

    44.996156, -122.481797 - Google Maps

    This here is the gravel pit that needs to be cleaned up. Weirdly enough sounds like possible snow this coming Sunday and Monday.

    Perhaps the 28th?

    From I205.
    South on hwy 213 16 miles to hwy 211 (you'll see Safeway on the left).
    East (left) on hwy 211 (aka Main St) 2 miles to the Y in the road.
    Right at the Y onto Mathias road 1/4 mile then veer left onto Feyrer Park Rd.
    Continue on Feyrer Park Rd 1 1/2 miles, cross the bridge, turn right onto Dickey Prairie Road.
    Continue on Dickey Prairie Rd 1 1/2 miles, you'll see a store, veer right prior to the store to continue on Dickey Prairie Rd another 3 1/2 miles.
    Turn right, cross the bridge and follow the pavement 5 1/2 miles.
    A couple hundred feet past a parking area with a pit toilet, turn left and cross the Pine Creek Bridge.
    Follow the gravel road to the right 1 3/4 miles, as you crest the hill you'll see the turn out for the pit on the right.

    AWESOME. Count me in for the clean-up. I can't drive but maybe I can hitch on with another member in my 'hood? (I'll also pm the other members that I know who live close by me & see what they're up to on for the 28th, see if I could tag along with 'em)I'm kinda by Woodstock/Flavel & 60th area in SE PDX, or I can bike/bus to a meet-up place. I'll gladly kick in for gas & etc!
