Geocachers Deep Clean Mother Nature

So, your TV stops working. Just stops. What do you do? You take the 42″ TV to your pristine local park. You quickly swivel your head around. There’s no one there. Then you clumsily dump the TV in the deep brush. Done. Maybe it’s biodegradable?!?!

Wait. Wait. Wait. That’s not YOU. You’re the person who’s waist deep in thorny brush pulling out the battered (and NOT biodegradable) TV. And there’s also a lawnmower and another TV and even more trash. Whew.

Carnation, WA USA – COWWS CITO Event

You’re not alone. Thousands of Geocachers around the world took the weekend of the April 24 th and 25th to clean their local parks and trails. It’s called Cache In Trash Out (CITO). It’s a little payback for what has been a couple pretty rough centuries for ol’ Mother Nature. And we’ve seen what happens when Mother Nature doesn’t get the respect she deserves – cue the volcano.

Good choice in helping cleanup the place. If you didn’t help yet, don’t fear the volcano. CITO events happen throughout the year. Find your opportunity here. If you did a CITO let’s see some of your pictures and video on Facebook. And Thank YOU!

    I still don't don't know why someone hauled a bowling ball all the way out there.
