    Vanity Plate

    I'd like to see a law that requires any purchase of stock to be held for a minimum of one or two years, or until some limited number of qualifying events occurs that allows it to be disposed of. Why?

    Quaker to Batsto September Trip Report

    Very true and funny Woodjin, I think it was more of a 2.5ft 4 ft snake, he gets a bit bigger each time I tell the story, so by next year he will be the 5 foot 2.5 ft snake. The trip likely took about 5x longer than it would usually take me, because of the search for the glasses and...

    Exploring a Different Area of Wharton

    I made a few walking sticks and just recently attached a rather crude but effective tether to one using Velcro for a wristband. I have a long rope tied to the stick and the other end to the wristband. That way I can lay the stick down and will not forget it since it is attached to me. I keep the...

    The Jersey Devil Story as told by his cousin

    Thanks for sharing. It is a very sad story and one that to me sounds like it could be true since even after all this time it would still bring some shame to talk about your family in such a way, even remote family.

    I went to another place I think it was dock street in Tuckerton and got 1 so my crabbing luck/skills are not good. I can't remember ever not getting a basketfull when I was younger. Maybe it is just selective memory.

    I took the kids crabbing at Green Street in Tuckerton. We only caught a few spider crabs. We packed up and tried seven bridges. All the bridges were crowded so we tried one of the side streams for a short time. No luck at all. I was still happy to take the kids to see it, seven bridges was one...

    I was reading today that the bass and pickerel in the pine lands area have higher levels of mercury and stronger warnings about eating them, than other areas of NJ. I was surprised to read this. Anyone know why the pine lands would have higher mercury levels? Lorun

    Kayak to Bodine (not exactly)

    The plan was for my brother and me to kayak to the Bodine campsite. We would camp out overnight with my two children ages 3 and 5. The morning of the trip started out bad. A whole dug for putting in new sewer and water lines into the house filled up with water due to two down spouts on the...

    Speedwell to Bodine

    I am planning to paddle from Speedwell to the Bodine campground with my brother. Than camp out at the campsite with some other family that does not want to paddle. The rental places state that this trip takes 71/2 hours. Does this sound correct? I believe that they sometimes overstate the...

    Oswego River

    Last sentence is saying that many would find the river too overcrowded for their taste, but if the livery says the water is low less people from the rentals and perhaps other will be on the river.
