Pine Barrens and Cache #2500!

Reached the 2500 mark today. Well, 2501 actually since I found 12 today. It was a trip to the pine barrens or, to be more specific, the Brendan T. Byrne and Wharton State Forests. Most of the caches were accessible by sand roads. There was a bit of trial and error as some of the sand roads were impassable by 2WD and one sand road turned out to be a dead end at some private property. But overall, it was a remarkably problem-free trip. I drove where I could and got out and walked where there were puddles or sugar sand.



The Railsplitter (New Jersey)
Lower Mill Area, Brendan T. Byrne State Forest in Pemberton.

Do You Know Your Trees????? (New Jersey)
Byrne State Forest in Browns Mills. The container at the location contained directions to search a particular kind of tree for the cache. Good thing it was findable without knowing what the tree looked like.

Too Scenic to Pass Up!! (New Jersey)
Byrne State Forest in Manchester Township.

Hobo's Haven (New Jersey)
Byrne State Forest in Manchester Township. Interesting walk along the old railroad tracks.

Sandy Roads (New Jersey)
Byrne State Forest in Vincentown. Supposedly this is a closed sand road but I came in a different way and none of the gates were closed. Go figure.

SSSSSSSSSsssssssammy the Snake (New Jersey)
Wharton State Forest in Vincentown. Had to walk this one a little because the sand on the sand road was soft.

Etheridge House Burned Down - That's just Crappy (New Jersey)
Wharton State Forest in Vincentown. Near the Atsion Ranger Station.

History of Atsion - in a cache (New Jersey)
Wharton State Forest in Vincentown. Also near the Atsion Ranger Station but down a different sand road. Interesting ruins in the area. According to the cache description, it was the cotton mill.

P.S. I Love You (New Jersey)
Wharton State Forest in Hammonton.

The Lasagna Trail (New Jersey)
Wharton State Forest in Hammonton. Could drive all the way because of a large puddle in the sand road. An interesting walk next to the old railroad tracks.

Welcome to Wharton (New Jersey)
Wharton State Forest in Atco. Near the Wharton State Forest sign.

Can U Canoe !?! (New Jersey)
Wharton State Forest in Atco. Didn't intend to go for this cache but I was trying to turn the car around when I checked the GPS and noticed that this cache was pretty near. So what the hey?
