    Yeah my garage can't get reorganized again after this past year.

    Hell I was never gonna lift my Jeep but I installed a whole coil, shock, sway bar link, track bar lift over Christmas/New Years break just cause I had the time.

    Haven't been over to Wharton this week. Not sure where the rain line was, but probably closer to the shore.

    Here's the backyard a few seconds ago here in Medford by the lakes, so about 5 miles from Atsion.

    Vtwinp, I was gonna say that we don't bother shoveling our driveway (we both drive very capable 4x4s with lots of ground clearance).

    Our driveway is almost back down to gravel where it gets the most sun, and still a couple of inches of snow where it gets more shade.

    I'm surrounded by Medford Lakes.

    But I'm on Lake Lenapine (just below Nakomis elementary school), which is technically Medford but not the Lakes.

    My neighborhood was responsible for the long Stokes detour the other summer while the dam on our lower lake (that dumps into Lower Aetna) was being repaired.

    Looks like it needs a little more "defrosting" before rideable. And snow tomorrow may set us back a little further.

    Lake Lenapine? Your bridge/dike is on my regular road bike (bicycle) loop.

    I have been eyeing the empty wooded lot for sale on that lake for some time. Seemed to be one of the few, more private, lake front parcels. Oh well, was by there a few weeks ago and it looked like it sold, it was being cleared for construction.

    I'm not far from there, near the Shamong/Medford boarder, Medford side, off Atsion.

    Looks like a nice lake, how's the fishing?

    Yuppers.

    You can see our beach and canoe rack (and tiki if you spot it up in a tree) when you're going west over our dam. Just to your left on the far side of the dam.

    That wooded lot is nice. I don't think it's sold though, I think a builder is putting a spec house on it and will list it for sale. At least that was the plan last I heard.

    Our lake has the usual array of sunnies with a decent amount of bass, a number of grass fed carp and supposedly an albino catfish.

    I think we lost the one big snapping turtle but have a whole population of painted turtles.

    It's nice and none of the Medford Lakes complications.
