You've got to hand it to everyone involved in the free dump days organized by Pinal County in San Manuel yesterday and today. We took full advantage of it as did hundreds of residents from San Manuel, Oracle, Mammoth and elsewhere around the region. Photo credits to my niece, Alice Raine, for the photos and her two boys, Theo and Thomas, for brush cutting and loading.
Many hundreds of families loaded trucks, trailers and even passenger cars to make the drop. Here we are in Oracle part way loaded. County workers were unfailingly helpful and competent moving all the vehicles and trailers though quickly, while leaving them cleaned up and cleaned out. Thanks to all!
Kaz and I moved to Oracle in 1979. The house we bought dated to the late 1940s. With little advance knowledge of the place, we set out to build a new life together, intending to settle in and raise a family.
