Last I was there, back around 1985, the Pine Barrens was kind of fun. Until I got stuck, alone, walked to get help and got back to find some douche stole my fog light from my 1983 CJ7 Laredo.

The pine barrens it is. I used to wheel there 20, 30 years ago. Look around Batsto, or Atco. There is a somewhat large area for SNJ to go offroad there. It's about 20 miles across if I remember right.

Grew up wheeling in the Pine Barrens. I left NJ about 25 years ago and it is really the only thing I miss. Can easily spend a day trail riding and there are a few rivers for canoeing. Pretty flat except for Apple Pie Hill. When its dry there is sugar sand and when rainy it gets muddy. Some of the ruts can get deep and recommend you have another jeep or winch with you until you get to know the place. Sometimes you find stuck rigs without anyone around that are good to get fog lights, etc. off of.

Also keep an eye out for the Jersey Devil. I will say I have not been in a creepier place than deep in the Barrens late at night. I never went there alone at night.

I only had one issue and it was not in the state forest. I was off Rt 70 around the 4-mile circle, about a 1/2 hour in. It was around midnight and we saw some lights and people ahead. A guy walked up the trail to great us with a pipe in his hand. I asked if they needed help. He kindly recommended we turn around and not worry about what was going on. So I agreed and turned around lol.

I still have property up in NJ. When I go up there for the summer I used to take a gun with me for home protection. Not anymore, the laws have changed for the worse. The peoples republic of New Jersey. Gun laws much better here, in fact all laws, taxes, and property appreciation all better here in Florida :-)

i want desperately to get out of here. have for years. I'm too old to start a new career at this point and i have family obligations so realistically I'm going to be here for a while. when i do leave I'm definitely headed south.
