Me and my 2 boys are going to the Mullica river camp for an overnight.(may be my last until Thanksgiving). If I find someone else to go may paddle down the river. If not we will hike in from Batsto leaving around 10am. Any and all are welcome to join us.We will be in site #4.

I might be interested in the paddle - my schedule is a little hectic right now, but I should know in the next two or three days.

Would you mind a second boat? I am not sure when, or with who (I asked a few people but have one spot open on the boat), but I want to go and paddle down from Atsion. Was thinking of stealth camping though.

All are welcome. I have a canoe and kayak for me and my boys but can leave the kayak at home if a second is needed for a boat. we can figure the logistics when we get closer. I have already reserved site 4 and have room for 3 more on the reservation.

With a week to go just checking to see who was interested in going so that the plans could be finalized.

Trying to free up one of the kids but it is a crazy soccer weekend, not looking good.

If anyone can tell me how to get there from New York by public transit I'll be happy to come on down. How close would I be able to get to the BATONA Trail?

The Pine Barrens are not an easy place to get to via public transit (the Pine Barrens really are barren). You could take NJ Transit to Hammonton (depart NY Penn Station 7:14 am, switch at Trenton to AC train, arrive Hammonton 10:19 am) but then you're still eight to ten miles from Batsto Village. I guess you could take a cab from there.

It's a four-mile hike from Batsto to Mullica River Camp along the Mullica River trail.

For future reference, I'd be happy to shuttle someone to Batsto or Atsion.

if you can get to Camden, NJ you can then take the bus to Bass River. it puts you about 5 miles from trail, about 1 1/2 hour walk. or you can go to Cheiselhurst and you will be 2 miles from woods and 7 miles from trail. there is another bus stop on rt 72 near tthe detention center, but i don't have that info and that would put you within 2 miles. i will but together schedules when i have time.

There is always next time. Maybe a repeat of the Thanksgiving weekend hang.

That sounds like a mini-MAHHA in the making! I'd be up for it.

Roxanne! You don't have to put out the red light!

Maybe that will be my contribution, since I got the last one off the ground.

The annual NJ Post Thanksgiving hang at Lower Forge. I'll have to come up with some cool name or acronym.

I'll start planning this week. :-)
