Congratulations to SmashingCrackers for winning the Magellan GPS!

Lehigh Valley Geocachers have Adopted-A-Highway and will be picking up trash on it for the 1st time during International CITO Weekend. We will meet at 1 PM on Sunday, May 1, 2011 at Lower Nazareth Township Park. You can park at the coordinates posted on this page.

Our 2-mile section of highway is on Route 191 from Route 22 just North of the bridge to the intersection of 191 and Newburg Road at the Newburg Inn. The signs are Northbound just North of the Route 22 Bridge and Southbound in front of the Newburg Inn. There will be new signs installed below the existing signs that will read "LEHIGH VALLEY GEOCACHERS". They should be installed before this event.



If you would like to participate, please post a "Will Attend" log on this cache page and fill out this Release Form. The Release Form needs to be signed and returned no later than Sunday, April 24, 2011 Wednesday, April 27, 2011 so we can pick up the correct amount of supplies for the event. Cachers under 18 years of age require a Parent or Guardian signature. Only cachers 8 years old and older may participate. The Release Forms can be mailed to PO Box 99, Nazareth, PA 18064 or faxed to 610-365-2048 or emailed to greyvingeo@gmail.com

Rules:

Adopt-A-Highway Safety Requirements:
Participants shall:
  • Pick up one side at a time when cleaning a multi-lane highway with a median. Vehicles shall remain on the same side of the highway as the volunteers.
  • Never cross over or pick up trash on the traveled pavement.
  • Upon arriving at the work site, immediately display PennDOT's official "Litter Crew Ahead" safety sign in advance of the pickup site.
  • Not posess or drink alcoholic beverages.
  • Conduct at least one safety orientation meeting during the year.
  • Provide appropriate and adequate adult supervision when youth groups are involved in litter pickups; that is, one adult per eight participants between the ages of 8 and 17.
  • Avoid peak traffic hours, holiday weekends and extreme inclement weather conditions.
  • Stay clear of all construction areas.
  • Conduct pre-pickup safety talks. This is in the agreement.
  • Avoid all horseplay or demonstrations of any nature on the right-of-way.
  • Wear safety vest provided by PennDOT.
  • Avoid hazardous materials such as old car batteries or any unidentified/questionable items and animal carcasses.
  • Be aware of all known allergies of volunteers before participation (bee stings, poison ivy, poison oak)


Adopt-A-Highway Safety Recommendations:
Participants should:
  • Know emergency procedures such as the location of the nearest emergency facility and how to quickly summon the police or an ambulence.
  • Provide their own first-aid kit and include kit with other supplies during litter pickups.
  • Avoid overexertion and heat problems by drinking water and taking breaks.
  • Carpool to the litter pickup site.
  • Wear the recommended attire: long sleeves, blue jeans or long pants, leather shoes or boots and gloves. Wear the safety vest provided by PennDOT.
  • Be careful of contact with poision plants, bees, wasps, hornets, ticks, fire ants, and snakes. The recommended attire will usually prevent irritations from most poison plants.
  • Pay special attention to the handling of broken glass. Participants must be careful not to step or kneel on broken glass.
  • Be aware of visibility problems.
  • Be prepared for any unexpected behavior of motorists.
  • Park vehicles a safe distance from the traveled roadway.
  • Always face oncoming traffic.

  • Participants must be careful not to step or kneel on broken glass.
  • Avoid all horseplay or demonstration of any nature on the right-of-way.
  • Pick up one side at a time when cleaning a multi-lane highway with a median. Vehicles should remain on the same side of the highway as the volunteers.
  • Never cross over or pick up trash on the traveled pavement.
  • Not possess or drink alcoholic beverages.
  • Provide appropriate and adequate adult supervision when youth groups are involved in litter pickups; for example, one adult per eight youths.
  • Avoid peak traffic hours and extreme inclement weather conditions.
  • Avoid hazardous materials such as old car batteries or any unidentified questionable items and animal carcasses.
  • Stay clear of all construction areas.


Gloves and trash bags will also be provided by PennDOT and they will haul away the trash bags after the event. You should bring protective clothing, sunscreen, drinking water, and a "grabber tool" if you don't want to constantly bend over. People unable to walk long distances or confined to a wheelchair can help in the staging area (Lower Nazareth Township Park). The length of the event will depend on how many people participate, but should be about 2 hours. There are many caches in the area, and at least one new cache will be placed for this event. Anyone is welcome to place more if you would like to. Just let us, Greyvin, know so we can plan accordingly. Currently there are almost 800 caches within 15 miles of this event.

We have received a few donations for things that we will be raffling off after everyone is done cleaning up! Thanks to the following companies for their donations:
