I will help also, but you have to be careful. One wrong step and you are up to your belly button in mud. There are pockets of soft stuff all over. I saw a 4x4 truck on lanier a few months ago try to run along the shoreline and his front end burried about half way around a flat cove. he waas up to his windsheild in mud. Be careful.
Perhaps the cans can be recylced and the funds go to charity . Maybe too much mud to recycle. How do you get to Illinois by land ? May need a meeting place with a date and time. Will help depending on the weekend.
