Ghosts of the Pines


Recommended Posts

I was milling about in the local library recently and stumbled across a video titled Ghosts of the Pines. This is an NJN production. I think it was originally aired in 1974.


For those of us who cache in the Pines, there were a number of familiar places highlighted: Hermann City, Weymouth, Batsto, Harrisville (McCartyville), and Washington. Ong's Hat was also discussed. There was a re-enactment of Joe Mulliner's trouble at Sooey's place.


This video is but 30 minutes, yet is a must for those who seek the Pines caches and want to know a little history.





Geocaching . . . hiking with a purpose

The Pinelands is our country's first National Reserve and a U.S. Biosphere Reserve of the Man and the Biosphere Program. This internationally important ecological region is 1.1 million acres in size and occupies 22% of New Jersey's land area, including portions of seven counties (Atlantic, Burlington, Camden, Cape May, Cumberland, Gloucester, and Ocean), and all or parts of 56 municipalities. It is the largest body of open space on the Mid-Atlantic seaboard between Richmond and Boston and is underlain by aquifers containing 17 trillion gallons of some of the purest water in the land. Over 700,000 people live in Pinelands communities. Population densities range from less than 10 persons per square mile in the interior sections to over 4,000 persons per square mile in more developed communities at the edge of the region.
