    Nj Covered Bridges

    All this time I thought covered bridges were to prevent the horses from being spooked by the sight of the running water below. Covering them to lengthen their life-span makes much more sense though. Great posting Jerseyman, thank you.

    Where is this?

    OMG...you guys are unbelievable! One of my favorite places is the lake just upstream of Chatsworth Lake.

    I'm inclined to agree. What an isolated area it is in! In searching the area on google maps I came across this preserve: < link removed by moderator > Off-topic but worthy of noting, I hope.

    I'm not a copper wire expert, but in my mind 1200 lbs represents alot of wire...perhaps it was heavy gauge.

    Lake off of Long Causeway Rd

    Thought so, thank you. I hiked back there with TomM some years ago. I recall a vacant homesite. It was beautiful back there, just can't remember the name of it.

    Lake off of Long Causeway Rd

    It's near where Long Causeway Rd. intersects Stevenson Rd. Is it on Nature Conservancy land?

    Any luck fishing at Atsion lake?

    In the 30's, right? That's some diehard fishermen right there! Admittedly, Tom M and I fished back in the day and it was so cold icicles formed on the rod tips. Back before Indian Mills lake was developed.

    Any luck fishing at Atsion lake?

    Live minnow on a size 8 hook and ultralight outfit with a slow retrieve works each and every time. If they're there you'll know super quick!

    That is one incredible story. I bought a '74 Landcruiser in '74, beige sand color. Perhaps we crossed paths in the pines back in the day.

    My fav commercial is for the purple mattress protector cover. It's on youtube. It's very creative and hilarious.
