    Ok sounds good, I have a truck and a couple of buddys. The score on help from the county seems like a run around session. I did find out that county workers won't go in the woods without police protection. Sounds like some campers live in the woods...

    I'm down. Just give me some notice this time. Last year ya'll did it on superbowl sunday and I didn't have time to tell 20 people to not show up at my house. Yeah, be carefull back there, that area bleeds tweakers/crackheads and junkies. I found one flipping around on the ground coverd in vomit and apparently going through DTs there last winter.

    Are you talking about the "camp ground" on N Skyview Dr? Thats been the home for drunks, tweakers, and any other kind of junkie for years. Why the sheriffs department doesn't clean them out of there is way beyond me. I guess they figure if they stay around there they aren't making trouble away from the Hwy 2 corridor. After every flood the trash (tarps, mattresses, junk) gets washed down stream and ends up in the trees.

    Seven different contacts I have a guy from the county invoved in the cleanup. A crew will be out in a week or so for the trailer cleanup. Thanks for the help I am looking at the third weekend of the new year to meet in the public fishing parking lot. Clean up and some fishing sounds like what everyone is looking for on saturday.

    I ran into the flipping out tweaker very close to the campground. It's funny, you can see the makeshift camps on google maps. :) They don't clean them out because it is VERY important that our police officers are busy making sure everyone drives 35 mph through sultan. The end of days could happen if, god forbid, someone drives 36 mph through there. :)


    Hey, do we have enough trucks to haul the stuff out? I just sold mine and will have to borrow my brother's truck if we need an extra.

    If the weekend is right and the time fits, I have truck and a trailer, 4X9 ft, open with a tarp I can tow up there. Is there a place to haul the garbage to? It's a long haul from Tacoma but if you need it, I can come. I wouldn't mind fishing. I've never been there.

    Well when you get done with the Sky. You ought to go over the the Sultan. That place is one of the dirtiest river I have ever fished when I lived in Washington.

    I got out to the Sky in Sultan and a couple other spots on the river today. Things were nasty in Sultan. There were numerous groups of tweakers milling around the bridge sipping on the finest of schwill. They apparently had a van they were cruising around, which is probably real good. This was the worst I've seen it, and it cut my fishing short as I was a bit nervous to be walking to my car after dark solo. I won't be around for the cleanup, unfortunately, but I hope you have a good turnout. Showing that someone gives a shit is the first step.
