As one of my fellow paddlers tests out his -50 degrees artic circle sleeping bag and tent, I sit here in my nice warm house, looking at the snow and the birds at the bird feeder, dreaming of water flowing under my boat on my way to wherever. I am not big on walking for the fun of it, and usually only walk when I need to get someplace and that is the way to go. Bicycles are out for me, especially this time of year, I can’t stay on em’ when the sun shines and the roads are dry. It would be hilarious to watch me try to get out of my driveway on one in this weather. So I sit in the house and plan and plan and plan some more for my long trips this summer.

Soon I hope to start picking up litter. Now this is one thing that I do walk for and will go some pretty difficult places to get a stray can or bottle. I am hoping to pick up at least 100 bags of litter this Spring for the Knox County Litter Prevention Spring Clean up. If you would like to help me, jump right in there, I will going out most days in March and April, and when I go down the river during those months I will be picking up litter. No tires at this time, but this fall will be a big tire pick up on the Mohican in places that Paddle for Heroes has not been able to get thus far. The litter office will provide a stipend for each bag of littler picked up this Spring and all this money will go to Paddle for Heroes.

I have to get the materials to build 5 or 6 new onion bag boxes to place on the Walhonding River access points; Confluence, Mowhawk Dam Boat Ramp, Warsaw Access, Access point upstream from old 6 mile dam, and Kilbuck Access. and any other that anyone can think of. We put at least 300 onion bags on the river last year, this year will probably be 1000 or more. Hopefully that will help with the litter problem and give us nice clean rivers to paddle on.
