Tired of tires in the river? Then check out this site, which tell of people who volunteer to remove this unsightly debris from their local rivers. If I had a pickup and a place to dispose of these things, I might offer to pick a few from the banks of the Ohio -- but only the ones I didn't have to dig out of the mud. There are a lot that are partially buried, and I'm not as young as I used to be.
For those who don't want to click on links, the site is http://tirefreerivers.bravehost.com/index.shtml
The photo above was one I took at the Guyandotte boat ramp last year. I posted it to my Flickr site.
