    Cape May County Explorations

    Yes Burlington County is the only place in NJ I have seen it growing.Never went looking for it But was looking for a place to pee at an outside event and there were long lines at the porta potties so I headed for the woods.There were flood lights that just barely made it to the tree line and I...

    Bob has a pic of it above.It looks nothing like the leaves of three so sumac is the least likely of the three you would come into contact with the the most likely to go unnoticed bu the uninitiated.

    Ben I think you might be thinking of Poison Iv/Oak.Both grow in leaves of three.Oak as a free standing shrub and ive as a climbing vine.Leaf shape on poison oak is oak like.Poison sumac is a tree and it's compound leaflet has 13 to 17 leaflets.It looks nothing like ivy and oak but has the exact...

    I noticed that Guy while stone hunting.Your GPS map rotated as you turned.That would drive me insane.

    I"m a north up man myself.If I find out the map is other wise why darn it it must be rotated till north is up.MY GPS is the same way.I want north up even if it means flipping the device upside down when I"m travelling south.My truck gps is the same way.I occasionally hit a button on the screen...

    I"ve also been there and same as you did not realize it was a plant either.I figured someone tried to catch a Fence Lizard and wound up with a tail and named the area that.

    Park Rangers Vs. Park Police

    My personal experience with Park Police is while they have not been rude they seem to not know much about the woods their patrolling.I think they are made up of people looking for a job and not people with environmental knowledge out to help the forest.One experience I had was quite comical...

    Saw Mill Ruins Near Hawkins Bridge

    I was about to reply that I found that same concrete slab with a poker stick as well,I may have been with you Guy,I can't remember but it was a long time ago.I remember I or we were looking for it,it wasn't just happenstance.It was not visible like here so it was probably summer.

    Tributary of the Tulp

    The Tulpe is my favorite location in the Barrens.Walked it once from Carranza rd down to the confluence with the wading.The upper swamp has some real nice meadows and islands and it gets purtier as you go downstream.Tulpa Hauken.Turtle Creek in Lenape.They weren't lying.Some big snappers in...

    Road Conditions

    Another hint is if you see tire tracks go in at one spot and the same tracks come out at another spot it's a good bet thats a good route especially if they appear to be normal tires not Godzilla Mud tires. Still worth checking that route from Track to track with a stick and rubber boots

    Russel's Crossing

    I used to drive that road all the time.They closed it I believe basically because they can and for no other reason,It"s not near the rattlers.It used to be part of my 50 mile dirt road drive.took four hours and nary a black top road was touched.

    Russel's Crossing

    Not sure exactly where this crossing is but it sounds like it may be in the vicinity of a rattler denning area the state watches very closely.That may be the why of the cameras
