2018 EJS Potato Salad Hill Fundraiser & Cleanup


This year during Easter Jeep Safari, Potato Salad Hill (PSH) will be open and as large of an attraction as ever. RME has already contacted the BLM and the Sheriff’s office who are all in favor of seeing the continued support from RME and the off-road community. As you probably know the PSH area is small, gathers large crowds and has no facilities (bathroom or trash collection) to accommodate those numbers. In years past it has brought many problems for the Sheriff’s office and the BLM who are responsible for the land, as PSH is not part of the official EJS event. Both the BLM and Sheriff’s office will continue to monitor this area during this high traffic weekend. Our focused efforts in that area really can go a long way with showing the groups that the rockcrawlers take land clean up and use serious.

Several years ago Jeff Knoll pioneered the idea of collecting funds and picking up trash to help keep PSH open to the public for the Easter weekend. Since then RME has stepped up to take that project over and continue the fantastic start given by Jeff. Again for 2018 it is our turn to give back to Moab. Help us ensure that the off-road community can work with the local governments, and we can all work together to keep PSH open. In the past several years RME members quickly raised money to help pay for the dumpsters and port-a-potties that were stationed at PSM! We had many members who were able to walk the area to pick up litter and have it taken care of.

Our efforts were noticed and appreciated. One positive example is the good comments we received from “The Solutions of Moab” a recycling center adjacent to the PSH area who takes a personal interest in the PSH area and works closely with the BLM and city council on the condition of PSH. Those few hours spent went a long way for our cause!

In February 2012, RME4x4.com (including all members who helped out) was awarded a plaque for the efforts and donations during Easter Jeep Safari 2011!

This year I can only hope for the same. I would like to challenge you to help raise $2000 (or more!) to fund this project. I would also like to challenge members who are in Moab those times to take a few minutes out of their vacation and walk the area to keep it clean.

Donations can be made via paypal to PSHcleanup@rockymountainextreme.com

All funds will go directly to the cleanup of the area, dumpsters and port-a-potties. Anything collected over the needed amount will be donated to the RR4W MUD fund. (Multi Use Defense Fund to delegate money to support pro-active measures in land use issues)

Ok, we are getting pretty close on time here so I thought I would share why I support this dumpster cause.

Being a life long wheeler, I always look for ways I can support/sustain this form of recreation for myself and my kids.

We regularly pick up trash when we are out. Make a point to stay on the trail, and you know, the basic little things that make a big difference.

Once a year we have a chance to make a BIG positive out of a HUGE negative by supporting this Potato Salad Hill clean up.

While it is a downer that a bunch of folks who probably don’t regularly wheel become the face of the 4 wheeling community by their actions on Jeep Safari weekend. It is also pretty easy to contain.

As we join together and support RME we can show who the off road community really is and keep the trails/sport going for generations.

I hope you will join the effort, contribute with your time in cleaning during the event or if your like me and don’t go to Jeep Safari, support it financially to make this happen.
