My attempt to make it to my 10 acres in Terlingua Ranch and make a go of living on it. From the start it hasn't gone good at all, but I'm hopeful things will turn around!

TRASH TRASH TRASH!

I'm with Frann on the burn ban and something needs to be done to give us some relief down here. Alpine has trash service or a way to dispose of trash, but we don't. There was a place in Terlingua for three weeks ends where we could take our trash and put it in dumpsters, but that has been stopped. Worst part for us in this area is that it was 25 miles away from here. I was sick for the first couple of weekends it was there and didn't feel like making it and when I did on the third weekend all the dumpsters were already full. (I got there fairly early in the morning) A woman there pointed to a mound of trash toward the back of the property and said I could dump it there, BUT there were quiet a few people there rummaging through the trash looking for treasure and considering I had some personal info in my trash I decided against dropping it off for people to rummage through. Of course that was after driving 25 miles to dump it and wasting the gas for the 50 mile round trip.
With this said the commissioner for this area needs to come up with something permanent or lift the damn burn ban on burning trash! This crap has gone on long enough! My storage tank is getting full of trash! Perhaps help both the people south of here by keeping dumpsters there and a couple up this way to so we don't have to drive 50 miles to get rid of trash!

I really don't want to build out of trash so rather than do the above maybe the county commissioner can use it?
