I will be posting here on our trips to the darrington pit. I have going there for about ten years and have been taking my grandson there for close to five years.

We are going there tomorrow about noon, maybe 1 oclock.
The past few years we picked up lots of spent shotgun hulls, steel rifle & pistol cases and regular trash.
I need to take a scrap steel run up to Skagit recycleing on Monday so tomorrow I will focus on larger steel junk people took up there and left along with a few buckets of steel rifle h pistol cases. I have a old refridge, a leaking hot water tank, a few old grills and some items at the house that I will.load up when we get back home from the pit.

If any one is interested in going post on here or send me a pm and I will tell you where we can meet up.

I will be posting all of our trips here for your reading enjoyment and hopefully encourage others to get the kids out to shoot and have a good time up in the woods.

We were there on Wednesday.
I didn't contact you because we were going to go to the cowboy camp above sedro but it was closed because they are logging it on week days .
Mel called DNR.
they said it was open but the gate was locked.
And a log truck came down when we were there.
Mel talked to him he said the logging companies are the ones who have the gate locked. Not DNR.
So we took the back way to Darrington.
We got there around 14:00 till 18:00.

The pit looks pretty good not much trash.
Of course we picked up our stuff and Mel picked up a bunch of shotgun shells with the magnet thing you gave her. 11394.jpeg

When did you go up there?
Yesterday we spent the day with the three grandkids. Last night we got a fire going in the fire pit and I had some buds.
We will be starting on the Rambler over by the ferry dock.in a week or so. I'll drop off some wood for your fire pit when we start frameing it.
Was the lower pit being used when you went there?

With the high ammo prices coupled with the non availability of ammo the use of the pits has dropped significantly.
 
It'd be fun to get up there some day and meet some of you folks, I need to break in a couple new (to me) "toys". Knees can be a problem for me, though, so we'll have to see. I'm a ways south of Darrington but not impossibly far.

A few of us will be going to the Darrington Pit Saturday morning if any one wants to join us. I will be leaving Arlington 8 - 8:30. It takes about 1/2 an hour to get there.
I am scheduleing a clean up for the pit June 5th at 8:30am. I will start a Darrington Pit Clean Up thread and post info about it.
