I hate to say it but I don't disagree with you there.I also hope and pray that Robert Auermuller loses his job if it can be proven that he has circumvented due process with the implementation of this program on PUBLIC land without public notification and the input that results from that.
I know "Cherry Hill" road is blocked like this, got a pic from a friend of mine, that road was a disaster areaHas any one been down to any of the areas that are being abused. Have they been left open? If so why? Why did they close roads with little to no 4x4 use? Why is it so hard to make a map? Are they "working" on a map because they haven't finished closing off areas? I have many questions and a few theories. To me this feels like there's more to these specific closures then just 4x4 abuse.
Not sure yet, I contacted Dave and he cant remember his log in info here and is sending me something in email, I have his permission to post and will as soon as I get it.I take it then that this is not the 'forum' mentioned in other posts, but one organized by and for folks questioning the closings?
Yep those too. I haven't been down Rockwood road in years. It needs to be very dry for me to even think about it.I haven't been down Railroad Ave/Batsto Fireline lately, I know just after Locks Bridge before you get to the other end of Cherry Hill road this was a disaster also, has this been closed after the Locks turnoff? I am alos curious about West Mill Rd / Rockwood Road, another area that looks like the tank testing area at Ft.Dix
I had deer stands off West Mill, not that far from the crossroad for Rockwood, haven't used them in years, its like a bombing range, even when its dry its almost impossible to get a normal truck down that way. My truck is slightly modified (33's) and I don't take it down there anymore.Yep those too. I haven't been down Rockwood road in years. It needs to be very dry for me to even think about it.
It just kills me that they did the closings before they made the map publicly available. It also speaks volumes that the DEP, PPA, Al Horner, etc. are all silent about this.This is from Dave:
Hey guys, mudboy dave here. That meeting at the red lion inn is a brainstorm I came up with after speaking with rob. My goal is to try to get the 4x4 community to conform with what's going on out there. I want to inform them of the map that is waiting approval and try to not only get them to respect the signs but also to stop tearing up the main roads. With me being as involved as I am in the 4x4 community I believe I stand a better chance of communicating with them than state park police or some random older guy. This is no more than attempt to stop the roads from getting damaged again and to try to prevent any more stringent rules from surfacing later down the road. Of anyone has any questions or has anything they want me to communicate, then by all means feel free to call me or text me at 8568737528. I have totally forgotten my password for this forum and the email that I used upon sign up years ago no longer exists. I hope you are all doing well.
Remember this? https://forums.njpinebarrens.com/threads/closed-to-mortorized-vehicles.7062/I posted about this a year or more ago.
As I have said for years, this is the beginning of the end of motorized access to the Pine Barrens. It's finally happening. Anybody who thinks this is the end is naive.
If you were wondering who's involved in this:
