    Hiking in some other Pines

    Recently, my wife and I spent a good part of a week in Taos, New Mexico. We were home for just one week and then spent another week in Georgia visiting my youngest Son and Family. While in NM, I hiked one of the more popular trails in the Sangre de Cristo Mountains located in the most southern...

    Service station on the Red Lion Circle?

    On 1940 map on Historic Aerials there was a building at the Circle between RT 206 N and RT 70 W. It shows a road coming in off of 206 before the Circle and back on to 70 down from the Circle. It also appears to be two entrances in front of the building right at the Circle. The structure...

    Where is this?

    For 1602, it is were the North Branch Forked River crosses the road where Al made a guess. For never being in this area, this is my final answer. For 1859, well it's not easy for me where you were standing. I just can't get the right perspective between the photo and map. That's why I didn't...

    Where is this?

    As for the 1859, I believe it's at the marker on the attached. I was looking at this one earlier on different years maps, and I notice this area was cut and not cut. https://maps.njpinebarrens.com/#lat=39.706223003918446&lng=-74.76175803344728&z=15&type=topo&gpx= For 1602, it is in the Forked...

    Stone Searching... Fall, Winter, Spring 2018/2019

    To confirm two things mentioned earlier. It sure looks like the state forest vehicle that Guy saw on Sooy Rd was posting new signs. I saw several new signs today. As for the collapse pipe in the road, I saw that last week too, but it's bigger now. Sometime very recent a road grader came down...

    One of the best send-off's

    Scott; At the time of my hand surgery, my Family Doctor had referred me to a hand and wrist specialist at Reconstructive Orthopedics. I would have recommended him, but since then he retired. So, when I fractured my wrist March 2018, I just took next available hand and wrist specialist.. He's...

    One of the best send-off's

    I haven't been following this thread for a while, however I just noticed the subject got changed to Dupuytren's contracture. I had this problem on both hands. I was told it could be heredity, but I'm not aware of anyone in my family having it, and I don't have northern Euro heritage. Sorry...

    "Oak Bottom" after the Fire

    Today, I retraced my steps from the day I did the "Oak Bottom" Post back in February. This time it was much warmer; and after the major forest fire that took placed a couple weeks ago. This area suffered a direct hit. The most intriguing observation between the two visits was the valley that...

    1st of the season

    I was there at the pit last Thursday. Looking at the marked up picture, the circle on the left are three good pallets; the circle on the right is the only fire pit I noticed, and the arrow notes a marked enduro course. In the photo of the fire pit, note the yellow horizontal line in the...

    1st of the season

    They say that the fire has spread to 10,000 acres. That's 15.625 square miles. From Spring Hill to RT 72 at Coyle Field is about 4 miles. From Red Rd to Shoal Branch is about 4 miles. Not knowing the true direction the fire is spreading, it could be west of Shoal Branch to Bailey Rd. We...

    The Bear Swamp Hill tower would have been the best to spot that fire. Are we short on towers?

    SoJourn Winter 2018/19 is out!

    Jeresy Girl; Could you be referring to Hazel in 1954. Millville had gust up to 86 mph. The other one I recalled, was Diane in 1955. I was 9 and 10 yrs old at the time. I believe they are the two I was referring.

    Be Careful Out There

    I was in the Pines yesterday where I did some minimal bushwhacking without the use of Permethrin protection. Being March, I never gave any thought about using it. Well, I found a tick on me when I got home. It didn't take me too long in getting one of those babies. I'm going to the store...
