Goat Camp has been known to greet passersby on the trail with “ma-a-a-a”. But nowadays they are more likely to greet you with, “Pocket trash? You got any pocket trash?” Since 2008 they have specialized in making sure all the cigarette butts, little candy wrappers, pieces of string, and other little things that others overlook get picked up and hauled out. They often roam the trails with plastic trash bags while the gathering is still going on before the start of clean up.
They are always found on the dirty kid’s side of the gathering. Most of them are train-hoppers and regularly use the rails as their means of transportation. It is said that GOAT stands for Get On A Train.
