If you've never lived out in rural areas you may not realize folks used to throw trash in the woods. There wasn 't any land fills or trash pick up. Later in the years folks covered up the trash piles with dirt. Folks definately used these woods for trash. I found old bottles, cans, tires, parts to a bed, tin from a roof, bumper from a car. You can see in one of the pictures some of the tin. I've used 5 big trash bags so far.
We plan on doing more this weekend. There is a level spot at the bottom of the hill and we want to make it a picnic area.
