Officially Patrols Its Own Adopted Street did its first official pick-up of its adopted street (Price south-bound from Baseline to Guadalupe). Thank You to KathleenM for helping me pick-up litter on a sunny (and warm) Sunday afternoon in Tempe, Arizona.

The pick-up resulted in a lot of small litter pick-up (e.g. cellophane wrappers). We ignored most cigarette butts and broken glass. We picked-up 4 bags of litter and the pick-up took almost three hours. [another picture]


I crossed a side-street in a non-defensive manner.

I went the wrong way. Next time we will begin from Guadalupe and go north -- against the traffic -- to Baseline.

We both did not have on vests. needs to get a first-aid kit.
