    Centralia, PA

    I haven’t been there in a couple decades so not sure what access is like these days but the abandoned Pa turnpike tunnel was a cool place to visit too. It was a pretty popular place and there were a lot of people hanging out the two times I went. It even looked like some jackass had a fairly...

    Centralia, PA

    I had a friend that bought a house in Shamokin for $5k back in the 90’s and I used to take my atv up to that area almost every weekend to ride back in the early aughts. Our quads couldn’t do any more damage than the coal companies hadn’t already done. It was bad back then too with the trash and...

    Preserved land question.

    Thanks! It’s hard to tell on my phone and I’ll have to look at it on my laptop later to confirm but looks like it is considered a preserved easement.

    Preserved land question.

    Hi all. I figured this would be a good place to ask this since so many of you have such vast amounts of knowledge of the area. If not, I’m sorry and you can delete or move my post as you see fit. I am thinking about putting in an offer for a house in Southampton and the seller is claiming the...

    A romp of otters!

    Sent you a PM. I’ve seen many solo otters and pairs over the years but never a group like this.

    A romp of otters!

    Was a dry day for me. A shiner is just a type of minnow.

    A romp of otters!

    Hi all! I had an awesome encounter yesterday! Took the new boat out fishing at a recently opened WMA. Had a great day fishing and just before 5 I was leaning over to release a fish and put on a new shiner when I heard a snort. I look to my left and see something swimming towards me. As it got...

    Chatsworth Cranberry Festival Canceled For Second Year, Freedom Festival Denied Permit Amid Coronavirus Fears

    To be perfectly honest, I think the cranberry festival is overrated. I get it’s a big money maker for some people, but I t’s pretty much just been a giant flea market last few times I went. We walked for hours around there last time and don’t think we found more than a handful of vaguely...

    Real Estate

    Pain for some will be good news for others. We originally started looking around ‘05 when prices were ridiculous. We were frustrated, mad and had almost given up hope on finding a single family home with a yard. Almost ended up buying a condo but in time were glad we waited. Our neighbors bought...

    Real Estate

    It is crazy right now. We’re getting ready to put our house on the market. I bought my house in 2010 and will walk away with close to six figures if it sells only for asking. The realtor said every house she’s listed in the last 3-4 months has gone for 5-10% over asking and is selling in days...

    DEP plans new effort to regulate off-road vehicles in Pinelands

    Unless they’re talking about permits for dirt bikes and ATVs we already have a driving permit system in NJ and every other state for that matter. It’s called a drivers license and it already allows me to drive a legally registered and insured vehicle on any public roadway in the United States...

    Wooden Water Pipes

    I wonder if having to whittle the wood to join them together is where the term pipe fitter comes from? FYI don’t ever call a pipe fitter a plumber. I made that mistake once. He kind of took offense to it and told me any idiot can be a plumber.

    Wooden Water Pipes

    An older plumber I used to work with told me that wood pipes are where the term fire plug comes from. Firefighters would dig down and drill a hole in the pipe, then plug it and rebury when they were done with it. Apparently, stealing water was a big thing too because all you had to do was drill...

    Atsion lake pictures?

    Thanks! That was a year before I was born. Didn’t know the dam was replaced in ‘78 also. That doesn’t seem like a very long lifespan if it was replaced again in the early 2000’s. I have pictures from when they did the newest replacement but I have a feeling they are on an old laptop that I don’t...
