    5th Annual Pine Barrens Trip!! - July 10-12

    Wow, it's hard to believe that this is going to be the 5th year now!
    NJ Pine Barrens Trip

    Where: (New Jersey Pine Barrens) Wharton State Forest. Atsion camp grounds.
    http://www.state.nj.us/dep/parksandf...s/wharton.html

    When: This years camping trip will be Friday July 10 - Sunday afternoon the 12th.

    Like most years I will be there first thing in the morning on Friday.
    I leave Thursday after work and Geocache the whole way there and arrive late Thursday / early Friday morning.

    It sounds like Ron and his wife is planning on heading there on Thursday as well.

    I have camp site #10 and Ron has #8.

    Like most years, nothing is etched in stone. We explore by car, foot and boat. Boat being the best way to see the nature all around this wonderful place.

    You can get a limited taste of what you can see at the Pine Barrens from these 2 links:

    2007 Trip

    Anyone is welcome to come along.
    Hope to see you there.

    Yup - really looking forward to it!! Each Barrens trip I've been on has been both educational & a lot of fun. Checking out 'known' CP sites & exploring new ones is great - as is the time spent with other folks with similar interests. Last year, in between our wanderings, we spent 1-2 hours chowing down in one of those all-you-can-eat buffet places while talking CP. Beyond the CP, the wildlife & scenery in the Barrens is really amazing. If you haven't yet, check out the links Steve included to get an idea ....
    All the best,
    Ron

    I would love to come, but I'm half the country away here in Florida.

    Maybe a few years in the future.
