Default EJS 2017 - Moab EJS Potato Salad Hill Fundraiser & Cleanup

This year Easter week Potato Salad Hill (PSH) will be open and as large of an attraction as ever. RME has already contacted the BLM and the Sheriff’s office who are all in favor of seeing the continued support from RME and the off-road community. As you probably know the PSH area is small, gathers large crowds and has no facilities to accommodate those numbers. In years past it has brought many problems for the Sheriff’s office and the BLM who are responsible for the land. Both the BLM and Sheriff’s office will continue to monitor this area during this high traffic weekend. Our focused efforts in that area really can go a long way with showing the groups that the rockcrawlers take land clean up and use serious.

Several years ago Jeff Knoll pioneered the idea of collecting funds and picking up trash to help keep PSH open to the public for the Easter weekend. Since then RME has stepped up to take that project over and continue the fantastic start given by Jeff. Again for 2017 it is our turn to give back to Moab. Help us ensure that the off-road community can work with the local governments, and we can all work together to keep PSH open. In the past several years RME members quickly raised money to help pay for the dumpsters and port-a-potties that were stationed at PSM! We had several members who were able to walk the area to pick up litter and have it taken care of.

Our efforts were noticed and appreciated. One positive example is the good comments we received from “The Solutions of Moab” a recycling center adjacent to the PSH area who takes a personal interest in the PSH area and works closely with the BLM and city council on the condition of PSH. Those few hours spent went a long way for our cause!

In February 2012, RME4x4.com (including all members who helped out) was awarded a plaque for the efforts and donations during Easter Jeep Safari 2011!

This year I can only hope for the same. I would like to challenge you to help raise $2000 (or more!) to fund this project. I would also like to challenge members who are in Moab those times to take a few minutes out of their vacation and walk the area to keep it clean.

Donations can be made via paypal to [email protected]


All funds will go directly to the cleanup of the area, dumpsters and port-a-potties. Anything collected over the needed amount will be donated to the RR4W MUD fund. (Multi Use Defense Fund to delegate money to support pro-active measures in land use issues)

We could use the help from the members of JK Forum, especially with reaching our $2000 goal.

Hey folks, we're almost half way to our goal and EJS is coming up real soon! Anyone else willing to support this and help us meet the goal of $2000?!

Thanks to all those that have stepped up and supported this project, it means a LOT to the 4WD community.... a few dollars will go a long way.

Thanks to everyone that donated money to make our Potato Salad Hill Cleanup a reality, we met our $2000 goal last night! We has many individuals and businesses that supported this and really stepped up big time with donations big and small. We want to say that we appreciate every last penny to help get this done, THANK YOU!!! Thanks for making sure Potato Salad Hill is clean and will continue to show that the 4WD community cares about their public lands, we couldn't do this without your support.




The extra $57.35 will go to the Red Rock 4 Wheelers MUD Fund to help keep trails open in the Moab area.
