Yes, beaver's are a real problem in that area. They have destroyed some of the savanna's near Rockwood that once were walkable and wonderful to view, and now are washed out so bad I could barely keep from falling when I went back to find this stone again. I was 100 feet away and had to turn back after almost falling into a washed out hole up to my waist. I will try and find photos of my attempted return there.

Just curious, if the event is solely on his property, which is deemed private property by the gate that keeps me out, why would your jeep need to be registered to participate?

Joe, I think that would be a reasonable, standard process for any event, private or public.

By the way, that photo on his facebook page is obviously not the pine barrens.

Bob,
I have been to several events where on private property the vehicles are not required to be registered, including drag racing, mud racing and motorcycle events. Entrants are required to sign a damage responsibility form to participate in the event, and I do realize that photo is not the pines i was referring to the gate not on his property :)

Whatever the reason, the intersection just past his gate floods big time. If he is required to have insurance for this event there would be no escape route. I just don't see how his insurance company would allow anything like this. The road he has a contract for is only so wide and anyone who deviates from it would be on state land. It just would be impossible to keep that from happening.

My point exactly, thats why the vehicles need to be registered, they plan on going on state property in my opinion

I was not thinking of state registration. I think Miller means to register by just listing who you are, your license number, etc.

Yes, I knew you knew it was not our pines in the photo, I was just making a general comment for all.
