    History of us.

    I've seen that show, and I was a little confused when the brought out John Legend to comment on the construction of the transcontinental railroad. But I found the show interesting overall, and it definitely reminded me of my AP US history course in high school.

    The Hut

    Your mention of Horsin Around reminds me... anyone seen the enormous wooden barn that used to have pony rides? It had the ponies as recent as last year or the year before, but it looks abandoned and maybe condemned now. I can't think of what road it's on, it could be Rt. 73, but I'm not sure.

    The Hut

    I saw that too... I wonder what you could do with that big ol' hut besides tun it back into a bar. It'd make an interesting little market, maybe.

    Cedar Water Potability

    I often give informal talks on Pinelands ecology to younger campers at my summer camp, usually as we're hiking along the trail, and one comment that I get a lot is "The water here looks so dirty!" I explain that it's cedar water, looks that way from the tannins, and should be very clean. The...

    Oil

    As much as I agree someone (namely, BP and/or the Government) needs to be held accountable, I can't help but feel that we need to figure out how to stop it from getting worse before we really start to play the blame game. We can sue and prosecute and head to the Supreme Court all we'd like, but...

    Acagisca

    I've also camped at Sacajawea (or Sacy as some call it). Facilities were nice, aside from a rather unnerving number of daddy long legs... anyway, back to Agagisca. It belonged to Holly Shores... did Holly Shores possess Sacy, Shephard's Mill, and Agagisca? You might already know this, but Holly...

    The Hut

    I'm happy I joined this website, you guys know tons... I live just outside the Pine Barrens, so I've seen many rundown bars or old farmhouses or buildings (like the Hut) that are just plain interesting, but I've never been able to look into any of them till now. Thanks guys!

    The Hut

    When my family goes down the shore, we pass countless old, rundown buildings that hold my interest. However, we only pass one Quonset hut--appropriately named "The Hut". When we pass by, it's hard to tell if it's still operational or what. I was hoping someone on this forum could tell me or give...

    Acagisca

    Thanks Boyd! That's all new to me... I must not bee Googling hard enough, haha. That's interesting about the name, I just assumed it was Native American or something. When we drove through, it looked very small (in comparison to the other camps I've been to), but it might stretch farther back...

    Acagisca

    Hello, my Pine Barrens-loving friends, A couple of days ago my mother and I went out for a drive and happened upon a place called Acagisca, or something similar. Upon further investigation, we found out it used to be a Girl Scout camp. I find it interesting but logical that the Girl Scouts...
