Embarrassed to ask!

Hi NJ Gang! Dopey question - Is camping at Sandy Hook a new thing? For me to live at exit 12 on the turnpike and not know that you can camp at Sandy Hook embarrasses me. I promise not to do a naked…Continue

So I was kinda shocked to see September's issue of Backpacker Magazine list the d*mn "Egg" at Harriman as the the "best vista" in New York. I'm not asking you guys if you agree with that - I'm asking…Continue

Nothing beats a good day at Round Valley

Except when you get back to your car and have a $71 ticket for parking there after the park closed! URGH! I was literally carrying out beer bottles and garbage I picked up on the quick 6 miler (office to campsite #7 and back) on the Cushetunk and told that cop that I was glad he ticketed us while I was out there cleaning up the park! He didn't appreciate my trail maintenance apparently! I just assumed the park was open till dusk, but it's only open until 6pm in March. Lesson learned I guess.…

The smartphone question I posted a year a half ago, was the start of an amazing relationship with my iPhone. 

Filmed, edited  and posted End Sept to Mid Oct 2014. PA, MD and…


AT SOBO 14 - Dirty Jerzy & Co.

Posted on January 9, 2015 at 1:26pm 2 Comments

Happy 2015 NJ Hikers! Now that I've left our amazing state for an extro-spective look, I can report back here that in fact, NJ is the best state. 

I completed my AT Sobo (FYI = Sobo means Southbound) thru hike on the Winter Solstice (12/21). In dismal Georgia. I plan on posting here all my thoughts about that experience over the months to come.. I'm working on my flickr, youtube and white blaze, but NJ Hiking here is my home base. If any one has questions, please ask. No parameters.…
