    Faint Road from Staffordville to Woodmansie

    This is kind of an oddball question I guess, and maybe there's some history to this. I spend a lot of my free time just following old roads on Satellite photos, then on foot, and then back again on satellite photos. I've learned a lot over the years, and it seems the landscape is always...

    Nescochague berry feeder canal

    So this has been on the to-do list for quite a long time now, and another thanks to pinelandspaddler for the info back in 2008. The ultimate goal of this trip was to not only follow the canal, but to hopefully find some of the Batsto glassworks ruins that were dumped into the creek to help...

    Couple of Batona Trail Questions

    Hey Everyone, I've spent quite a bit of time in the past reading about this trail, and a lot of the details associated with it, but I still had a couple questions. I keep reading that the Bass River trailhead is at Coal Rd. Is there overnight parking by the Bass River ranger station? I see...

    Possibly two Riders Switch(es)?

    Morning all. I've spent a decent amount of time over at the Riders Switch location, both on the road that shoots straight to the former Hampton location, and along the tracks themselves just SW of the Batsto Trestle. I know there has been quite a bit written about the cranberry operation here...

    Pineland Gardens - AKA Powder Mill Springs

    Hey Guys, sorry long time, no post. So I came across a building plan for Pineland Gardens while at work today and found something I thought maybe some folks here would find interesting. Attached is a basic image of what the plan looked like with the name on the side as it was shown on the...

    Tree Cutting on Quaker Bridge Rd.

    Sorry if this is already a thread somewhere on here, but I didn't see anything. Took a ride home from work through the pines yesterday and noticed about a 2 acre or so section of pine cut out of Wharton SF on Quaker Bridge Rd. about 3/4 mile outside of Atsion. It looked like anything larger...

    Help with a face and a place

    I got a message from a person on flickr asking for help recognizing the location in a photo she had. Personally, I have no idea, but I figured someone here might. Would anybody have any idea of what this place is? I have attached the photo and the message she sent to hopefully help with the ID...

    Short Cruise Under a Full Moon

    Sorry, haven't been on here in a bit. I hope everyone had a good holiday and a Happy New Year. Been meaning to make this drive for a while now, and finally had a free night, with a full moon and great weather. Low water in the pines helped traverse the route as well. :dance: Went from Atsion...

    Forest Fires and Survival

    A little while back I decided to take a drive through the pines on my way home from Batsto to Atsion on what seemed like a nice calm sunny evening. I took the road up the west side of the Batsto and then cut over to the east side of the Mullica/Atsion. The wind quickly started picking up and by...

    Odd slag findings at Martha

    So a while back while kayaking the Oswego with some friends, I noticed there was some odd slag underneath the water at the 90 degree beach just South West of the old dam site. This can be accessed by the road that leads from the furnace site to the unused bridge over the Oswego River (Batona...

    Paper Maps

    Not sure if this is the spot for this question, so feel free to move it if needed. I saw the frequently asked question area about the wildlife management area maps. Those are what I am looking for but I'm having trouble finding a place to purchase the paper versions. Would anyone know of a good...

    Millville Bunkers Destroyed?

    I've been meaning to drive down to the wildlife management area just south of the Millville airport to see the long lost WWII bunkers for some time. A friend was just asking the other day where the Millville Motorsports park was located and when I checked the map on their website I saw that...

    Stale Beer and Blossoming Blueberry Bushes

    Has anyone else ever noticed that the blossoming blueberry bushes smell like stale old beer? I've been noticing it more and more in the last few weeks or so. Give them a whiff. I've also been smelling some local planted crops that smell like grapefruit.

    Trash & More Trash

    Not really sure if this is the right location for this - but if it isn't, the mods can put it where they see fit. Took a ride through the Makepeace Lake WMA yesterday and noticed someone dumped a pickup load of religious books every 40 feet for about 1/4 -1/2 mile. There's so many it's...

    Dogs and Snakes

    I know it's not too much of a concern right now, but I love to take my dog in the pines in the summer and I'm growing more concerned the more I read about pine rattlers. I already lost one dog to a severe heart condition, and I wouldn't want to lose another to a run-in with a deadly snake. I...

    Questions about Quarries

    So today after checking out some locations in the South Jersey area on Bing.com, a question came to mind about the hundreds of quarries that dot our landscape. How deep do these things go? Is there a set depth that companies can dig to or is the depth limited by the length of bucket cable or...

    Weymouth Bridge Closed

    Went to take Weymouth Rd. home from the Black Horse Pike today and saw a sign that said " Weymouth Bridge - no trucks". Assuming cars and motorcycles were still ok, I took the exit only to find that the bridge in front of the furnace was indeed closed, and actually closed to everything. I didn't...

    ? About Kayaking the "very" lower Delaware

    I figured someone on here would know the answer to this question. Is it possible to kayak the very lower part of the Delaware River, say, near Philly? I know that's a little out of the Pine Barrens area, but everything I've looked up about it has no info at all about kayaking through that area...

    Apple Pie Hill Tower Smashed Again

    Made a trip out to Apple Pie Hill on Friday night and once again the tower was smashed. I know it's happed a couple times already, but this one looked pretty bad. The rangers, or whoever, left the light on I guess to try and keep people away and we could clearly see all the windows smashed and...

    Atsion School Open For Tours As Well

    Just saw the thread about the mansion being open, and thanks for the heads up Turtle. I didn't want to hijack the thread but I also wanted to let people know that the school was open for tours also. 2 weeks ago I noticed that someone ripped the plywood off the front of the school doorway. It...
