The NJFFS has been creating fire breaks along Carranza Road yesterday and today. They're really going beserk, some of the lanes are only a couple of hundred feet apart.
I used to hunt right in that area in those fields the club managed for Pheasants, when they let you way back when. Got sand stuck up to the frame in my Fathers Pontiac even wayer backThanks. I haven't seen a crazier area of cuts than by Lakehurst. I don't know why it was necessary make cuts like this.
Well, you have the jump circle, the firing ranges, the fields for hunting, the runways/taxi ways and the test facilities for catapults and retrieval equipment (fan shaped), in addition to the hangers and other normal stuff. The hunting/fishing club is right on one of the taxi ways. I still have the old maps somewhere that we were given each year to ensure we didn't stray into some area where you shouldn't stray. They were very serious about thatThat makes sense. If you pan the map towards the north more there are even more stylized cuts in the forest around the base .
Gib, I wrote one last year on behalf of the FRMC. They did come out with a woman timber rattler specialist (she was there to learn what they were doing wrong), and they got their ears chewed off. They promised action, but all they did was place very small sticks at the entrance to the firebreaks. If I were you, I'd write it. Here is the one I wrote with the critical location removed. Copy all!Is it necessary to right a scolding letter to the Forest Fire Service and DEP?
