There was a fire along Maple Branch road a few years ago. Jess and I were told about a charcoal pit that the FFS bulldozers uncovered. While there down a remote road a man on a bicycle appeared. We talked with him for a while.

Henry Charlton Beck ran across an artist, Ned Knox, that rode a bicycle through the Pine Barrens looking for subjects to paint. I have no idea how he made it through sugar sand though.
