    Thanks Ben

    I totally forgot about all of this and those videos. I wish I had saved them.

    can you help me find these ruins?

    I think the Bill Curtsinger edition of John McPhee's The Pine Barrens has a pic or two from Friendship. Nothing as good as Pan's. I can't believe this discussion is 10 years old.

    New ORV Plan Ideas

    A lot of wailing and gnashing of teeth, if this is anything like 2015.

    Announcing the new NJPB Maps

    I don't know why I didn't notice this until just now, when wks commented on the thread. The extra level is nice to have but I occasionally use the topo map for things outside of NJ, which the NJGIN and Boydsmaps versions wouldn't cover (as far as I know.)

    For an iPhone, no. If I had an Android I would 100% run it.

    The snowblower won't be here until next week so I can't be held responsible for anything that happens between now and then.

    Toyota 4runner

    Those look small enough to stick under your rear seat. And that way they won't have the sun beating down on the plastic making it brittle.

    Toyota 4runner

    Yes, one of the boxy ones. I had a 90 and loved it. I don't think I'd get an obnoxious roof rack like I used to have again. What was I thinking? That thing was super reliable except for the power window switches. After I replaced the radiator and coolant expansion tank. :) I'd like to find a...
