    Frost may be coming

    Ah, Friday night, I opened my window and I fell asleep to the death cries of all the chiggers!

    Jackson Road Closed

    Yup, you're right Redneck. So many road names change I can't keep up! It's A.G.E. disease. Gets worse every year!

    These secluded 60-year-old fishing cabins could be demolished by the state

    Figures. New Jersey always seems to take what it wants, when it wants it.

    Jackson Road Closed

    I take Jackson Road from Rt 73 to the 1st stop sign going towards Indian Mills (just past the cranberry bog), to get to work. It looks like they are replacing a storm drain or sewer line. There is a detour if I'm running late (which is almost every day these days). It is usually open on my way...

    Scary kind of Wet

    Read a story about a guy who drowned under similar circumstances. Someone said "at least he died doing what he loved". No he didn't, he drowned!!! Found myself in a similar situation a few years later and thought of that article. I got out, but I was truly scared. I'm alone in the woods a lot...

    Any luck fishing at Atsion lake?

    BTW, Jeff, remember when my brother Tom and I ran into you fishing a few years back? I took a sneak picture of what you were using. Your secret is safe with me, just wanted you to know that I know.................

    Any luck fishing at Atsion lake?

    I caught my first pickerel in Atsion lake. No pun intended, but I've been hooked ever since. I've had luck there with bass assassin minnows (or anything similar) with a #6 weedless hook.

    Seasons are a Changin'

    That whole area south of Atsion is beautiful. I've walked it a few times, but would never drive it. When the weather turns cooler I'll have to give it a go. Nice pictures, as usual. Thanks for posting.

    Jersey Devil ultimate pop culture thread

    Hmm, Denise and I were just out at Leeds Point on Tuesday. At sunset. Heard a scream. Jumped in the car and took off......... (LOL!)

    Pine Barren Flora

    They certainly did. Hopefully will be up for some good walks in the fall! Have taken some short teaser hikes and I feel great!

    Pine Barren Flora

    Yes, I guess it's been our turn in the barrel. I'm feeling great now, just need a bit more time to build up my strength. I've taken a few short hikes. I'm really looking forward to the fall.

    Pine Barren Flora

    Bob, thanks for posting all these beautiful pictures. I've been laid up for awhile (seriously ill, it was close), but am almost back to normal, and aching to get out in the pines. I looked at every picture from this thread today, and really just enjoyed every one. I'll be out in the woods on my...

    Mullica Bridge On Jackson Road

    I travel Atco Road everyday, it's pretty bad, I've waiting for the detour signs to go up. It see's too much traffic for a wood bridge, but I still hate to see all the wood bridges paved.

    Lenape Canoe Company

    My brother Tom still has his Lenape Chief, 40+ years old. The problem is we are wearing out, not the canoe. We are both at a vintage age were we're having trouble transporting it, it's just to darn heavy. I have a Sears canoe, 15' fiberglass that only weighs 65 pounds. I bought in the tool...

    Tour Wharton ORV Destruction

    Sorry, I've been out of action for a while, health wise. So for an answer to my question I get sarcasm. Is that what this site has turned into while I've been gone? Been through enough serious stuff to not have time for this. From my previous question: "I don't have all the history behind this...

    Tour Wharton ORV Destruction

    I don't have all the history behind this argument against the PPA, but how did this thread go from a tour of Wharton damage by ORV's to Snowy Owls? In winter 2013-2014, I saw a snowy owl in the plains near Warren Grove. Last time I checked, that's still part of the pines. Does the PPA have some...

    Super Beaver Moon coming

    Let's see, born in 1956, next super moon is 2034? I'll be 78. Nobody in my family has made it to 70 yet (on my dad's side). On my mom's side, it's dementia by their late 60's. I plan on being around for awhile, but 78 may be a stretch. I wake up and see green grass, I'm on the right side and...
