We had a clean-up day at work the other day. Some of the guys got a little overzealous and threw away some perfectly good bedframes. Our archaeologist is in the process of restoring our fire lookout towers for people to rent. So, he saw those bedframes and dived in the dumpster after them. It was hilarious because we rented the biggest dumpster you can get and he looked pretty small in it.

Many national forests rent renovated fire lookout towers. Here is the information on ours.

I've never been dumpster diving, have always been chicken. Afraid I may run into something so totally disgusting that it would make me sick or I would get hurt. Oh why, oh why did my mom have such a wimpy daughter?

I would pick and choose were I go diving. School Dumpsters just after and Just before school starts are fun.
I was with a friend one time early in the morning looking through a dumpster and had 2 police officers inspected our "booty" this was Pirate Booty not Booty of this day.
After close inspection they left, I just know they came back!

I don't. But, knew a guy who found & had five TVs in his living room -- all on at the same time. Use to like consignment shops & a little boutique(?) for the American Cancer Society. I felt that the monies were going to a good cause.
