(first pick-up-Sunday, August 7, 2004)
We did not get a lot of pictures, but we worked really hard to clean Indiana highway 9 in Madison County from 600 North to 800 North. This was a difficult stretch because it has a fifteen foot median and both sides of the highway drop down pretty far.
Timing is everything and since the highway department had just mowed, a simple Styrofoam cup took quite a bit of time to pick up after being shredded over a five-foot area.
We also did not choose the best day for picking up trash. It was about ninety degrees. As a matter of fact, one member had to stop and rest for fear having a heat stroke.
All in all, it could have gone better, but the Endeavour spirit prevailed and we completed our assigned task in just under three hours.
