    Rehash on the Barriers

    We submitted the project proposal on February 12th of last year. Our submission contained more sites than were addressed, but it's definitely a start. The process certainly took some time and I suspect it may not have happened at all without Terry. Hopefully, more can be done in time, but the...

    Blocking ATV Access To Spung's In Wharton

    I encourage you to not be too pessimistic about this. It's part of a broader effort to stop the bleeding of habitat loss and is just one part of the puzzle. When they make a go-around, that can be blocked, so on and so forth. The key aspect is determination. The ATV's and dirtbikes are harder to...

    Blocking ATV Access To Spung's In Wharton

    Great work everybody, the only people that aren't going to like this are the mudders. Would have been there to help, but had to be out of town for the weekend. The only weekend of the year I've actually left the Pines! Go figure!

    Pine Barrens Photograph Collection from 1915-16

    Dates are assumed by the writing on a few of the negatives. Photographer and subjects are unknown to me. Collection was stored by my grandmother who was at one time President of the Hammonton Historical Society and passed on to me by my mother who was also involved in local history with the...

    Tour Wharton ORV Destruction

    Someone was trying to say I was misrepresenting where the Snowy Owl photo was taken. They were egregiously incorrect.

    Batsto sunrise, Mullica Sunset

    You can probably make it in your highlander but you might have to deflate down to 12 psi or so. Harbor Freight sells a cheap compressor with a cigarette lighter adapter. There is one section after Park Ave(D daves rd) and heading south, that has the thickest sugar sand you will ever encounter...

    Spotlight Article on Off-Roading

    The mudders are not one contiguous group. You have thousands of people from the tristate area looking at the Pinelands as the place to go to do this stuff. Not every point on that map has been beaten to a total pulp. It would be a bad idea to share it in detail.

    Spotlight Article on Off-Roading

    It's a visual representation of data PPA submitted to the Commission. The Commission itself added more than 100 points to the Wharton section. The Commission has not looked into other areas yet.

    Spotlight Article on Off-Roading

    The image is broad because if the close up view was used it would be like an instruction book for the mudders.

    How do we stop the damage?

    I do commend them, often and in person. The DEP has put the full weight of this on their underfunded, overworked, and commendable police force. They have abdicated any management role in the solution, which needs to be addressed. The ORV use is still intense out there. Every monitored location...

    How do we stop the damage?

    It's not a new opinion. I always chuckle a bit when someone makes me out to be some kind of experienced political operative. Before last year I was a photographer and cinematographer exclusively. I have never lived anywhere else but the Pine Barrens(travelling for work) and got passionate about...
