    Old Tuckerton Dump

    Never heard of either the dump or speedway before, but this appears to be the speedway location https://online.boydsmaps.com/#16/39.6187/-74.3479/pines1999 https://online.boydsmaps.com/#17/39.61875/-74.34787/pines1995bw Looks like the area Southeast of there has been all dug up, could that be...

    Slow loading

    Everything is working fine today, but here's what was up. The problem only affected maps that are hosted by the New Jersey Geographic Information Network (NJGIN). My site just requests data from NJGIN, and if their servers are slow (or down), there's nothing I can do about it. Next time you...

    boydsmaps online connectivity problems

    No problem on my site, NJGIN servers are very slow however. Nothing I can do about that unfortunately. I see the same problem here at NJPB maps with the NJGIN imagery. Then check the Google map at NJPB, and it's very fast. Or check one of my own maps at boydsmaps, and it is also very fast. But...

    Frosty Monday morning

    I see them pretty often (unless I happen to have my camera and 300mm lens ;) ), soaring over my own woods, and their call really is surprising! If present, they always check me out when I'm wandering around the woods, I guess they're trying to decide if I'm a threat or a meal. :D

    The end of Garmin Basecamp

    Here's an update on this old problem. A couple days ago, Garmin FINALLY released an update to MapInstall that (supposedly) fixes the problem with sending third party maps to your GPS. Have not tested this myself, but if it's true then that is good news - although it took them a year and a half...

    "I thought it was a win-win..." Wonder what he meant by that? Sounds like a win for him - and maybe another win for him if he sells it? Not much of a win for Marilyn and her heirs, who wanted almost four times that price back in 2011...

    RAIN?

    Nice Halloween weather.... sunny, 72 degrees and 88% humidity. Just returned from a walk and worked up a good sweat. The breeze feels good though. :)

    Buzby's

    I wouldn't get too excited about Buzby's future quite yet, sounds like he might have some thoughts of trying to flip it.... “I just saw commercial properties for sale, and took advantage of the opportunities,” he said. “On the investment side, I thought it was a win-win." But I certainly wish...

    RAIN?

    Yesterday's rain totals. I got about an inch and a half here. :)

    Pine Barren History Shorts

    I certainly wasn't accusing you of anything! Was just pointing out that "any newspaper article before 1923 or so is under the public domain" might not be true in all cases. This issue has come up a couple times in the past, specifically with old articles from the NY Times website.

    Pine Barren History Shorts

    While that is true, a company can place old articles on their website where it is copyrighted. For example, the NY Times website displays a copyright notice with all their old articles, and they have a pretty clear policy about permissible usage. I think it would be OK to scan your own old copy...

    Fall/Winter Stone Searching 2019/2020

    FWIW, the c. 1949 USGS topo shows the Clay Works here. But the exact location is a little vague, since it's only a label without a point feature. https://online.boydsmaps.com/#15/39.8598/-74.4344/pines1949 There's also 3d LIDAR here, but it's hard to make out the details. Unfortunately...

    New Garmin GPSMAP 66i

    Thanks! :cool: That's another possibility (if they will still do it). As much as I've enjoyed the Montana, it really is very large though. OTOH, my iPhone is about 4 years old now.... so maybe the money would be better spent towards a new phone, the new ones are supposed to have much better...

    New Garmin GPSMAP 66i

    Pondering a replacement for my broken Montana 600.... GPSCity stil has the Oregon 700 for $280, but Bass Pro has it for $250 ( in-stock at the Atlantic City Store). That is probably the best price I've ever seen on this model. https://www.basspro.com/shop/en/garmin-oregon-700-handheld-gps-unit...

    Forked-river-mountains- Illegal Off roaders Wage Secret War With Ocean County

    In the thread I linked to, you argued that enforcement would be effective, but here you seem to be saying that it's futile? Or do you mean that it would work in Wharton but not in FRM? Or that enforcement would only be effective with dedicated undercover police on ORV's? Anyway, I'm just...

    This article about catching illegal loggers in the Amazon reminded me of this thread. Seems like the same system could also recognize audio signatures of vehicles in restricted areas. "Used cellphones, powered by solar panels, upload audio data. It is analyzed in real time by...

    RAIN?

    Got a nice soaking here yesterday, I'm located in yellow area and had about 2 inches. No heavy rain or wind, just slow and steady over a long period. We could use a couple more storms like this, creek level is still pretty low. It's interesting that the same areas got the heaviest rain again.
