Ride in the Pines.
I'm thinking about going for a ride in the Pine Barrens around Wharton. Maybe the end of Sept. beginning of Oct. Anyone want to come along?

BTT, I should be able to go. Only had her 3 weeks but...

grthomas11 09-12-2010 08:55 PM

Glad to hear it, I'd love the company. Don't worry, the trails aren't that tough unless you know some good trails out there. I know the roads ok and some big puddles to have fun in. Most likely will be going on the 26th. We'll have to meet up somewhere.

Hey ill join with another jeep friend as well

bc40ton 09-14-2010 07:51 PM

Listen, I am in the process of diagnosing what I think may be a head gasket leak. So bear with me in getting it ready for the 26th.

grthomas11 09-14-2010 11:14 PM

Great! The more the merrier. Everyone is welcome.
No problem about the head gasket, get her running tip-top. Its a drag having to be towed home.( no pun intended)

bc40ton 09-15-2010 10:14 PM

Still trying to figure out whats up with the motor, but where we going to meet, Batsto Village or Godfreys Bridge, Lake Oswego???

grthomas11 09-16-2010 09:46 AM

Maybe the ranger station on 206. When should we meet? and what about lunch? Do we want to leave the woods or should we bring our lunch? I like to eat.

bc40ton 09-16-2010 04:58 PM

Never been to the Ranger station, but I am pretty sure where it is. I usually wheel east of that area. If I cut through Quaker Bridge road I think that brings me out there. Near the Lake right? I was gonna grab lunch on my way up and meet 12-1230, but gotta split around 4:30ish. At least that how my day is looking at this point.

grthomas11 09-16-2010 05:08 PM

Sounds good to to me. I believe the ranger station is across from Atsion Lake. Is Godfries Bridge the one near that little store at the campground? We can meet there or Hawkins Bridge.

bc40ton 09-16-2010 09:41 PM

Yeah thats the one, and you can stock up on any last minute refreshments. You heard from the other 2 guys?

grthomas11 09-16-2010 10:35 PM

I haven't herd from them. Jigga is the only one I know of. Who was the other?

bc40ton 09-16-2010 10:57 PM

You out there Jigga?? Still thinkin of going?

Redz72 09-26-2010 06:17 PM

Sahara Jigga 09-26-2010 08:04 PM

Redz72 09-26-2010 08:15 PM

I think I could be down for that. I have heard about it but have never been i heard is wasnt exactly "legal." Where exactly is that located?

bc40ton 09-30-2010 05:09 PM

Heres a link, I am out for now, till my head gets here by Fri, Sat I hope.

Menantico Ponds Wildlife Management Area

bc40ton 10-01-2010 07:40 PM

Got the reman head on, used exh manifold and new injectors. Seems to run fine now. I think she gonna be alright. I might drive through Menantico Sat, or someone mentioned another place called silica. So maybe I'll see some one there.

grthomas11 10-01-2010 10:39 PM

I'm heading to Manentico on Sunday. Has anyone been there befor? Is it legal to drive there? I get mixed answers.

bc40ton 10-02-2010 09:14 AM

I did some research this morn, and it seems as though we are not allowed to run the property, but are "restricted to established public roads and parking lots". This info came from the NJ Conservation Officers Assn. So I am not sure where to go this weekend :( Anybody got any ideas?

Redz72 10-02-2010 09:26 AM

I'm always up for a ride in Wharton. I'm busy today but I'll be available to go tomorrow. So many trails to choose from.

bc40ton 10-02-2010 09:19 PM

Jeep ran pretty good. Still looks like some steam coming out the exhaust. Gonna check the radiator in the morning. I ran up to Menantico and drove around for an hour or so. Did a slow drive through some trails, found a large pit, no truck tracks. Couple locals on quads, I stopped them and asked what the deal was. They said they dont really get bothered, but did get checked for alcohol a while back. Signs say no unregistered offroad vehicles but if they dont bother the quads, maybe we will be ok. Lotsa large puddles cause of the rain but also plenty of shortcuts that the jeep just fit through. I would go back again if I had a partner. Try to look it up on Google Earth. Large area, small paths. Now if we could just get down into the Pits.
Jeep threw a code on the way home, so going to try a downstream O2 sensor. Redz, Not sure about Wharton yet, think I better stay close at least till I am satisfied the head was the culprit. grthomas11 wants to get together to. Were trying~~~~

Redz72 10-02-2010 10:32 PM

Anyone going wheeling tomorrow? Where to? I could be down for some jeepin

ThreatofDarkness 10-02-2010 10:45 PM
