    Andrews Road and Government Site?

    I think that's just the bombing range. I was just there about a week or two ago. I went up old Martha Road. Suddenly "no trespassing" signs appeared. I just kept going, figuring I'd get to either Andrews Road or Allen Road. I got to Andrews I believe. I drove to the right and found a permanent...

    How many 4 wheelers/off roaders do we have here?

    How many 4 wheelers/off roaders I don't go four-wheeling for the sake of four-wheeling. I do it to explore the Pine Barrens, looking for ghost towns and evidence of past human habitation, as well as interesting plants and trees. My 4X4 is an `87 Ford F-150 with 31X10.50 R15 tires (2 sizes...

    NJDEP Bans Off-Road vehicles from public land

    Jeff, You said: "It's analogous to gun control. The bad guys won't respect the law and decent, law abiding citizens get penalized when you go after the actual thing or activity rather than holding people who do wrong personally accountable. Guns don't kill; people do. I can understand...

    NJDEP Bans Off-Road vehicles from public land

    Re: "dual-sport" motorcycle. Bob, It sounds to me as if a dual-sport motorcycle is the same thing as what we called an "enduro" 20-25 years ago. It has lights, turnsignals, and is registered for highway use. I figured those things would come under the same heading as cars and trucks, as you say...

    Newspaper article

    The Pines, Robert Dunbar- signed 1st edition

    On Ebay, bidding is at $1.99. Now's your chance to get this book, and it's a signed copy no less. Bidding ends on the 21st. But be advised, it's a horror novel. It is about the NJ Pine Barrens though and uses real place names. Barry
