    New iPhone may also be a satellite communicator

    Satellite calls are incredibly expensive. I don't know how they'd open this up and not charge people extra for it.

    Mullica Hill Tornado

    Seems like a tornado came through Mullica Hill earlier and did a number on a number of houses.

    Garmin discontinues the Oregon series and some others

    I've been yelled at so many times by my electronics that it's all a blur now.

    Garmin discontinues the Oregon series and some others

    My first GPS will always be my favorite: the Garmin GPSMap V. I wish I still had a backup of all of the locations I marked on the maps back then.

    Such a pretty day.

In the minds of these people it's totally okay to commit mass murder, usually because of some slight -...

    Fall MAP?

    I'm seeing a bunch of talk online from the environmentalist community (I hate that term since I consider this site to be an environmentalist site) again painting the most negative picture imaginable about what's going to galvanize public opinion towards closing as many roads as possible. Rather...

    Get Togethers, Events, and Trip Reports posting guidelines

    Hi all - I just wanted to clarify that the "Get Togethers, Events, and Trip Reports" forum is really meant to be about NJ Pine Barrens related topics. Anything outside that scope should be in the General Discussion forum. From now on anything posted in the Get Togethers forum that isn't...

    Thanks Ben

    I totally forgot about all of this and those videos. I wish I had saved them.

    can you help me find these ruins?

    I think the Bill Curtsinger edition of John McPhee's The Pine Barrens has a pic or two from Friendship. Nothing as good as Pan's. I can't believe this discussion is 10 years old.

    New ORV Plan Ideas

    A lot of wailing and gnashing of teeth, if this is anything like 2015.

    Announcing the new NJPB Maps

    I don't know why I didn't notice this until just now, when wks commented on the thread. The extra level is nice to have but I occasionally use the topo map for things outside of NJ, which the NJGIN and Boydsmaps versions wouldn't cover (as far as I know.)

    Sure. But something is better than nothing.

    Nearly 30,000 Macs reportedly infected with mysterious malware

    For an iPhone, no. If I had an Android I would 100% run it.

    Nearly 30,000 Macs reportedly infected with mysterious malware

    People still don't believe me when I say that you need antivirus on a Mac. I even made it a requirement on all of the Macs at work.

    Allaire Park in Howell New Jersey

    I grew up going to Allaire. The village is what got me interested in Pine Barrens "ghost town" history and the bog iron industry. Suffice it to say that if it were not for my frequent trips to Allaire as a kid this site would not exist.

    Snow

    The snowblower won't be here until next week so I can't be held responsible for anything that happens between now and then.
