Pueblo man making cross country trek picking up trash

PUEBLO COUNTY, Colo. - One man is taking a 3,000 mile hike along US-50 West to pick up trash.

Jeff Free is a local comedian in Pueblo. He says he's doing it to get his message out that littering is a huge nationwide problem.

He will start out in Ocean City, Md., eventually making his way to Sacramento, Calif. While picking up trash along the highway, he'll also stop to do comedy shows.

"It's ugly. It's really ugly," said Free. "We have a beautiful county and we need to help keep it beautiful.

Free won't be alone. His daughter will be driving by his side. The trek will last until October.
