According to the Parks website, it's actually from 10:00am to 2:30pm, but nobody should feel like they have to be there four and a half hours. Give as much time as you can spare, and show up whenever it's convenient--what matters is that we get a big turn-out, as we almost always do. One shift leaves, another picks up where they left off. Some work an hour, others work six. If you can't make one clean-up day, you make up for it the next time. And if it rains, we all make up for it. But currently, looks like the weather will be fine.
That's a Google Earth satellite image of our general location, btw--wonder if Google Maps/Google Earth will ever recognize our existence? We're not mentioned as one of the local points of interest. The run can't even be perceived in the satellite photo they have, which was apparently taken quite recently--I zoomed in really close--no dogs, and I thought I could just barely see one human at the edge of the clearing. If I ever find a clear satellite image from the wintertime, I'll post it. I promise not to post any satellite photos that show you picking up dog poop, though. As Jerry Seinfeld once said--
If aliens are watching this through telescopes, they’re going to think the dogs are the leaders of the planet. If you see two life forms, one of them is making a poop, the other one’s carrying it for him, who would you assume is in charge?
Let's show the aliens who's in charge here, people. See ya Saturday.
