Definitely something I would be interested in if I can fit it into my schedule. A couple buddies and I did a little cleaning the last time we were up there, but clearly not enough to make a difference.

If I can swing it (day), I'm down with a clean up......The thing is, gotta be early am, before all the shooters get out there....way too dangerous to be running aroud out there when the place is "hot"

Pls keep us in the loop!

Perhaps a group of guys could "take over" one shooting lane. That way, there would be no other shooters to worry about (relatively speaking). That would limit the cleaning area, but would make it more efficient.

We'd need to take over either the whole upper or lower part of the ridge (for a clean up). I've been there shooting and went to retrieve a target on a "cease fire" and some knucklehead starting shooting....I've never kissed the dirt so quick in my life...he then got an earful from me when I made it back down (place is scary depending on who is out there)

cease fire? sorry ive only been there on the weekdays and have never had more than 1-2 groups out there with me. Is there like a hand signal or some point in time that there's a cease fire? I change/adjust targets while the other parties are reloading or changing mags. I watched for them and it was obvious they were watching me as well and for next couple hours thats how it worked.

I've also only shot on the lower portion and its kind of hairy hearing shots from the hill.

Cease fire probably means that you duck behind a rock and start rattling off return fire in their direction.

Seriously though, I've only been once, was at the top of the ridge, and didn't see anyone down below. If I'd had a view of any of them, I'd have been twitching about it.

'Course, if more people held my outdoor shooting philosophy, I think they'd feel a bit less unsafe:

It's a hand signal\verbal and then another verification of me looking back while walking out...I don't trust other shooters out there enough to run out while they are reloading...just means they will have more rounds to blow while I'm running back . It's easier to control in smaller groups...but, on a weekend up there.....very hairy!

I was thinking we could do it sometime early March on an early Saturday or Sunday morning so we can "beat the heat" so to speak but still make it so that most working people can show up.

I was thinking March 6/7 would be good so we can get a month to get as many folks together as possible to help out.

How does that date sound? How early would you be willing to make it up that hill?

After cleaning we could have a barbecue and a group shoot if there is interest.



Of course we'll need pick up trucks to load all that junk up into, and everyone should make sure their tetanus shots are up to date! I don't have a pickup, but I do have an older Suburban I could cover the inside of with sheets to protect from the garbage.

cant do 3/6, sundays are better for me but dont let me stop you. I will go ahead and call the forest department and the dump to see if we can just dump all at the trash for free right at the dump since it is only 5mins away. I know it might be a long shot but the ranger lady seems pretty nice. I post up what they say later on once i have time to call and see what they had to say.

I'd be down to pitch in, but I don't have a pickup, just a Jeep.

One idea I'd like to float, how bout we try NOT to do it on a weekend? I know availability might be a problem if it's not a weekend, but that place gets awful crowded with shooters on the weekend. Might be a problem getting in to safely clean it if it's crowded. Last time I was there (early December weekend) it was PACKED and people were waiting for the sweet spots to open up.

So who might be willing to do this on a weekday? Maybe just a halfday thing on a Friday?

If I don't have a scheduling conflict, I'll come and help.

If there are enough people, you may want to ask the rangers if they could assist by being present and temporarily closing the area to shooting while everyone is down range collecting trash. That would be a good way to establish a good working relationship with the rangers and provide safety to those of us who are cleaning up the area.

My work schedule is generally flexible, count me in pending a set time and date. No truck, but my wrangler will get most places and I have a 10k winch.

Orosco Ridge is closed right now due to water erosion damage to the road right now.It is supposed to be opened in 3 weeks.People should call 760-788-0250 ext. 5 to make sure the ridge is open.You never know how long they will keep it closed.

Weekends are bad for cleanups here. A weekday would be much, muccchhh safer for an independent cleanup. If it is done on a weekend, early morning is a bad idea. Us early birds get there at the crack of dawn, its actually the busiest time. 8am is twice as busy as, say, 3pm. The only suggestion I would have for a weekend morning cleanup would be to get there while its still dark and lock down a whole plateau with Calgunners, that way people just flood the top of the hill when they get there. Keep in mind, this would also piss off a lot of people who drove 45 minutes or whatever and couldn't get a spot. There can be a lot of Aholes that don't care that people are trying to clean up after them.

But really, a weekday would be much better for a non sactioned cleanup. It would be different if they were shutting down the range, but they've already said that they won't do this anymore. Let me know once plans are set in stone and I'll be glad to help out. I have a truck, rakes shovels etc.

I'm new to these boards and would like to help. I have a 6X9X3 trailer and if I have a few weeks notice, can do a weekday. Weekends are definitely easy.

As already mentioned, Orosco Ridge is currently closed due to the washout at the bottom of the hill right after the gate. If it keeps raining.. who knows.. it could get worse.
They were out with a bobcat trying to smooth things out as of last week but it was a mess.
In my opinion, I would not get the Rangers involved as they have already shot down a previous organized cleanup for no real reason. We really need to take it upon ourselves. Sneak attack!
For those of you that have never been up there that are offering to bring trailers.. a word of caution.. its a long, steep, windy, bumpy, and narrow way up to the top. Not saying it cant be done, just saying Im not going to bring mine..
Id also vote strongly for a weekday.. the turnout will likely be less, but.. I think it will make for a much safer and more effective cleanup.
Id recommend setting a date farther in the future than the first week of march given the current situation..
It would be great to meet some of you guys and help out!

Wow......didn't know there was a place in Ramona to shoot. That weekend in march that was suggested I will be out of town. but I will keep tabs here and see what is finally settled on. weekdays are even possible and I do have a truck also.

Sounds like good, clean fun! I would lean toward a weekday to be safe. I drive a 4x4 work truck with a covered bed and duallys. Big but HEAVY. Can make room in back for stuff, and tools/ trash bags are not a problem.

I'm down for a weekday. I have a small truck with 4 seats if anyone needs a ride.

To the OP, maybe you could set 2 dates. One on a weekend and one on a weekday in March and start a list of people attending. I think we concentrated on one lane at a time we could do some serious cleaning. I also think that people who were not participating would be willing to give up their spot and trade lanes as we move on to the next one...I would.
