FWIW, the post you deleted has two attached pictures which are still there (I think these are just thumbnails because I don't see full images in the gallery)

Don't know about file size limits, but will check later. I'd be willing to bet they were too big however. I think you first need to upload all your pictures, either one at a time or as a group. Then after uploading there should be a button to attach individual or multiple images. I'd just try again with files that are smaller and see what happens.

As for the picture... It was taken on June 16,2002 - wow, where did the last 20 years go?? Let's see how long it takes for somebody else to identify that. Should be an easy one. :D

The photo with your bug is Stephenson's road. It is also called the red road.

I never knew that. It wasn't so marked on the maps I had (geo. survey map and Esso or Mobilgas free road map). It was my favorite entry to the PB. GW Bridge > NJ Tpk > Freeway > Rt 72 west

The little bug ran great on those sandy roads.

I’m enjoying all the old photos. Cool stuff. I wish the signs were still around or maintained.



There didn't seem to be much (any) interest (except for my rare Friendship photo - which reminds me I was supposed to call back that lady at that Jersey college about it) so i took down a bunch of them, plus i don't know that i wanted to post them all anyway, plus i probably posted some of them before.

The VW was great on those narrow sandy roads, light weight, good ground clearance and traction - and a gas tank that i cld dip a rag in for tick removal (not approved by contemporary authorities).
