    YAWN.....6:45am came early Wednesday morning as the night before I was packing things, charging batteries and washing the booties from my Tech 8s 'till after midnight....and then my girlfriend won't keep her hands to herself :evil

    I was tired but psyched for our 3rd trip down to the barrens.....We learned a few things from our first trips like get eating out of the way early, better packing and getting good established launch points near the highway.

    Today (Wednesday) we chose exit 58 (Tuckerton) off the Garden State Parkway. Directly off the parkway on Rt 539 was a sandy pull-off and two-track trail heading off into the barrens.

    You couldn't ask for a better place for a break....About 10 miles off-road at this point

    This was a little too deep to cross
