    Pinelands Jetport Research Project

    Years ago, when I worked for the county, I came across a complete set of site plans for the project. We gave them to a co worker as a joke retirement gift. As a kid it was supper table conversation. Dad liked the idea, "lots of new jobs". I'm glad it never happened.

    Photo Archives--Forked River Mountain Coalition

    Thanks for posting Mrs. Morgan’s photos. The first time I ever met her was on the road between Wells Mills and Brookville. I was about 14 and my friends and I thought we were in the middle of no where. We were amazed to run into any one especially two ladies. They had the dogs that are in the...

    The Road to Howardsville

    I saw that road marked on a map as the Harrison Road; I always assumed it was named for Isaac Harrison who was a manager for the cranberry company that used to work the bogs. Years ago, I broke down about ½ ways through to Howardsville (Cranmer Place) and had to walk out. When I came back later...

    Currently the NJ Forest fire Service has two engines out in California. One on the Stanislaus Nat. Forest the other one on the Sequoia National Forest. I attached a photo of the engine on stand by on the Sequoia . Currently both engines are assigned to initial attack duties although the engine...

    New Found(?) Gun Clubs/Cabins in the Pines

    Again it's my best guess but around the area at one time there were quite a few clubs and many were named for the home town of the membership, Parlin, South River, Delaware, Trenton. I'll see if I can get a hold of one of my older friends who may have some first hand info. Thanks Mike for the...

    New Found(?) Gun Clubs/Cabins in the Pines

    No problem, Wanamassa (sorry I originally spelled it wrong) is a section of Ocean Twp., Monmouth County. It's common for the members to name their clubs after where they're from so that's where I always thought the name came from.

    New Found(?) Gun Clubs/Cabins in the Pines

    I just figured that the club's membership were from Wannamassa. I guess they never rebuilt after their last building was destroyed. I heard two versions of how it went down. One was a gas explosion the other was high explosives.

    New Found(?) Gun Clubs/Cabins in the Pines

    We always called that the Wannamassa Club. The story I heard was that the building indicated on the topo was their original club and later they built another building farther up the swamp. The 2nd one was the one that was blown up in the early 1970's? I'll give you guys credit for going back...

    Greenwood Girl's Grave

    Good news! I took a ride out there to take a look for my self and everything is just as I remembered, no additional damage. I'll be having an interesting conversation with my "friend" who gave me the bad information. Someone had hung some flagging to mark the site, I removed it.

    Greenwood Girl's Grave

    I always thought it was interesting that the grave stones looked like they were made from the same material they produced at Pasadena. Was that the only kilm in the area or were there others?

    I'm moving to Lacey township NJ

    200 sounds about right. The last time I dared to take the dogs on the Well Mills trails they were covered. They even had ticks between their toes.

    Greenwood Girl's Grave

    Thanks! I figured the folks here would have some intell. on the site. Your picture is how I remember the stone. I haven't been out there myself for a while, I'm getting my info second hand. I hope it's not as bad as reported.

    Greenwood Girl's Grave

    Someone just asked me if anyone could recall or have a photo of the girls grave located in Greenwood. This small cemetary is another cool spot that too many people knew about. The one stone was for a young girl girl named Atkinson. Someone had tried to repair it some years ago.but now a lot of...

    Hiking Greenwood Forest WMA?

    If you look at the roof of the truck cab, the remains of the numbers are still visible. If I recall it’s B-14 which would have been a Chatsworth based unit. My best guess was always it was a retired truck that was sold at auction and bought by a pulp woodcutter who abandoned it.

    Hiking Greenwood Forest WMA?

    As far as I know there are no official hiking trails in Greenwood. The best way to navigate is using the road system. Most of these are in good shape and could be traveled in 2WD. You may have to use your driving while in sugar sand skills in a couple of places. The primary use of Greenwood is...
