We live between Seney and Grand Marias; and take our SxS along M-77 to pick up trash. People are pigs! You can bring it out with you, take it back with you.

Don't bet the farm on that one, these types of people have been around longer than any of us have, young, middle and old all have done it and still do it.

Tell me about it! Not just beer cans, what about furniture? There is a trail near me I used to call “Love seat lane” for obvious reasons. Recently some A-hole emptied the rest of his house there, so now it’s “living room lane”. WTF? There is also a King sized mattress on the ATV trail that must have been a lot of work to get back there. Also - informal pole - I’ve noticed about 9 cans out of 10 are Bud Lites. Anybody else notice that?

if you drink bush light, you can't afford to throw the cans away

In Hurley our snowmobile club has a spring highway pickup. Goes on highway 51 and Cty C a mile in each direction from the clubhouse. Had to postpone it for awhile because of the amount of free standing water in the ditches.

Our club does that also. for our spring cleanup we collected 40 bags of garbage and a pile of stuff that wouldn't fit in the bags. we did it last in sept. of last year. bunch of pigs. included was about 15 empty salt bags and ice melter. I did give a local guy some crap about leaving those bags loose in his truck as he has one of those small spreaders in his truck and lives less than 2 miles down the road on the road we do our "adopt-a-highway" on. and he also has a business plowing and salting.

Question is why would one drink bush light to begin with?

I was on the trails / dirt roads west of 66 and south of W Sharon road......the beer cans/bottles hanging in the trees from twigs head high kinda sucked...I did see a memorial for Joe Brown I think his name was that was kinda sad.....anyone know what happened?? I know its been awhile.


I have a friend that drinks bush lite....I will say there is never a beer shortage at his house!!


The eagle look out in Springfield area is pretty cool to.
