    Webbs Mill flooded again!

    I was at Webb's Mill last Saturday and the water is backed up again. It is as high as the boardwalk in the bogs. I guess the beaver are at work again.

    Webbs Mill flooded again!

    While walking today I saw that the stream was flowing over the sand road at the back of the bogs. Is there anyone to call?

    Wolfspider found the W.P. 1700 stone!

    I was out walking today and found the W.P.1700 stone. Do any of you who are familiar with the stone know anything about the rounded topped mound about 15 yards from it? It looks totally out of place as a natural land form. Jay

    Is Hanson clearing the tracks?

    Thanks Guy, It is the Woodmansie pits that I meant. The sign on Savoy Road Says Hanson, the British Resorce Company which I guess bought the pits some years back. Jay

    Is Hanson clearing the tracks?

    Someone has been cutting the pines along the tracks from Hanson toward Whiting. Does anyone know anything about it?

    strangeness in a cedar swamp

    Until I found the 1930 aerial on this website, I had no knowlege that the road existed, which is why I didn't continue to look for it. I thought that there was evidence that it existed in the remnants of sand roads along the south of the bogs west of Butler Place Road and also going west from...

    There is no other state. Jersey Rocks, and Mullica Muck is the best in the world.

    Mullica Township? Yes or No

    Thanks Mike and all of the others. I'm most concerned about additional development, causing a large increase in taxes. Is that likely?

    strangeness in a cedar swamp

    Great pics, Woodjin, I wish I had been with you. I assume you came in from Butler Place Road on the west. If you examine the aerial from 1930, note the old road running from the cranberry operation on the North Branch going east within a few hundred feet of your island. It went to the...

    Mullica Township? Yes or No

    The house comes with a good sized freezer, no kids to care for so schools are not an immediate concern, although good schools would be a plus. Most of what I am concerned about is township politics, pension liabilities and things of that type. Is growth a serious problem? I am concerned about...

    I'm thinking of buying a house there. I know a lot of positives. Does anyone know any negatives?

    Upper Oswego

    I soloed this section all the way to the dam at the road about 12 years ago in the early part of March. It took me 8 hours of continuous paddling upstream. I had to pull the boat over about 20 logs. It is the prettiest stretch of water I've paddled in the pines. Once you pass the supports of...

    Directions to Ongs Hat

    There are water hydrants which I have used for drinking untreated numerous times at Pakim Pond at Brendan Byrne, and the campsites at Carranza and Lower Forge. You can also get drinkable water at Batsto Village.

    Oswego River Preserve

    I never left, and I still own it as much as I did when I spent more time there. It was built and owned by a builder from Springfield. The fellow who owned it used to spend a lot of time down there when his family was young. But as the years passed he was spending less time there. There was...

    Oswego River Preserve

    A beautiful place with many found memories for me. Watching the winter sunset from through the sliding glass doors, with the blazing fire behind me. Observing the flying squirrels eating the corn we set out for them through night vision glasses. Waking up to Jake the dog's wet nose in my...

    Batona trail hike Bass River to Lebanon

    Bankman, You do need a camping permit which you can get at Batsto Village, and possibly also by mail. The closest campsites to the 17 & 34 mile points northbound along the trail, would be Buttonwood campground before Batsto Village, and the Batona campground near Carranza. Buttonwood...

    Union Clay Works Railroad?

    I am not talking about the route from Woodmansie, to Old Half Way. I guess the thread name should be changed. This road is from Brooksbrae in Pasadena and was probably built to bring clay there, if it was ever completed. There is one place where the road was built up more than 3 feet above the...

    Union Clay Works Railroad?

    An update! I have now traced the old road bed south more than a mile from Pasadena and am more convinced than before that it is either a narrow gauge rail bed or a heavy hauling road. Does anyone have any info on the type of construction techniques that would have been used around the time...
