Default Video from Wharton Run

Well we went to Wharton this past weekend and had a blast til Evan (one of our friends) broke down. He's got a 2001 blazer that's pretty much stock. Instead of following us through a puddle he went another way which wound up worse than the bigger one. He hit hard and died. Took on a LOT of water. Cracked his starter shorted out his seat shorted the tps shorted out a speaker and broke a motor mount. We towed him back and eventually got him started so he could get home and start fixing his truck. I don't have a video of him until after he went down. But there is a stuck explorer in there! LOL If anyone wants to see some video here's the link http://www.youtube.com/view_play_lis...4F08B8D02555A2

It's near a few lakes and also near the cranberry bogs.

If you're in that neck of the woods you might check out the Picatinny Arsenal area. When I lived up that way, 15yrs or so ago you could do some trekking out there, not sure about now. Some decent trails, a couple of lakes and some good terrain.

Thanks! I'll ask my brother if he knows where it is. He knows Wharton pretty good for the most part. I know there are a few places though that are not allowed. He's actually gotten a ticket up there because they were all off trail in some quarry. And being an arsenal...They're probably not allowing anyone near it anymore.

Nice guys, wish I coulda been there, got stuck working.

Haven't been at Wharton since I reversed into a tree at 25mph there last year, but its a fun place to go.

Assunpink Lake is pretty decent in Monmouth County, dunno what the legality is there though...
