Well, my schedule is, as usual, killing me..but, I just got my truck back from the shop after that guy's rear end damage thingie got as fixed as the bass turds at the insurance co would allow...

...and I'd like to do some wheelin on sat or sun if you're doing some runs out there...sunday works better for me as the Mrs could go, and getting Mrs TJ out on the trails is always tough ever since the strokes, etc.

So...wheelin schedule?

big grin

That just made me cry. I miss all of you guys and I'll miss camping in the PBs with you! First time missing it since 2008 (we went with CC then....and then started our own club trips in 2009)

Have you found someone to lead? They may have some closures....probably have a map at the Atsion office.
I remember how fun it was last year not even wheeling at all...and going to the "ice-tea lake". Napping on the beach.
Couldn't have had a better group to have a better time with!!!

HAVE FUN YOU GUYS!!! Just remember not to go charging into some of the waters....they're surprisingly DEEP!!!

yeah

Hey TJ! Good to hear from you.

Here is the scoop about "wheeling" in the Pinebarrens. I spoke to both the park police and the folks at the Atsion campground office.

The only "trails" open to ORVs are the fire roads. There is absolutely no driving in any other areas. Basically, according to the Sergeant I spoke to "if it looks cool to do...it is probably not allowed." In order to drive your vehicle on the fire roads, your vehicle must be street legal and registered. In the State of New Jersey the maximum tire size is 38." According to the Sergeant, I should be Ok because my vehicle is titled and legal in the state where I live.

So...that being said, we will plan to do some of the fire roads on Saturday morning. Then probably wonder back to the campground, have lunch and maybe spend some time on the lake (canoeing, or whatever).

Sunday morning, we are planning to meet some folks for breakfast at the Pickalilly. We will leave from there to go home.

TJ feel free to come hang out with us is your schedule allows. It should be a good time!

Hmmmm...

My buddy Dom just mentioned doing some wheeling on Sunday, meeting at the Pick and leaving from there ~ 10 am?

Sat doesn't work any more...so its Sunday or no way.

He was unsure as to who else might be going....any of us?

Very Happy

Sorry TJ. We were actually planning to go to the pic-a-lilly with Dom but due a a major mechanical failure with one of the jeeps we didn't make it. We ran into quite a few people this weekend from various clubs. They mentioned a clean-up in October so we are hoping we can catch up with them then!

That would be the ANNUAL Pine Barrens Clean-Up.

Very Happy

I never miss it!

Its a good chance for community service as well, because we work with the Park Rangers to clean up areas they cannot get to/get man power to address.
