10 YEARS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! a DECADE!!!!!!!!

Come and take part in the largest one-day volunteer event at Wharton State Forest in New Jersey. On Oct 23rd 2011 at 9:00 AM the 10th annual PINE BARRENS 4 WHEEL DRIVE CLEANUP will begin with a sign up at the Atsion Ranger stations [where raffle tickets will also be sold to help defray the cost of wings and to support toys for kids] and conclude with the raffle and wing fest at the Pic a Lilly restaurant on rt 206 [they always help us out too]

Last year OVER 300 men, women and children collected two 30 cubic yard dumpsters full of trash while making new friends and enjoying the wonders of the pines. While doing this they worked up a voracious appetite that was satiated by hundreds of wings donated by clubs, businesses and individuals. Everyone had a great time and said they couldn’t wait till next year.

We are now soliciting past participants, 4 wheel drive clubs and local and national business’ to contribute time and resources to make this year’s event another overwhelming success.

This as a great opportunity to showcase a partnership for keeping our state lands clean and our right to transverse them unhindered. The rangers and staff at Wharton have embraced us and lend their time and support to help us have a safe and fun time. Terry at the ranger station has been a godsend to us and NOW MORE than ever the state of NJ park and forest system needs our help.

ALSO REMEMBER to bring toys for the disadvantaged kids who live where we wheel..

Last year we collected a lot of stuff for needy children for the holidays at the sign up spot at the Atsion ranger station and bought an additional 850 dollars worth of toys with the money YOU contributed!!!!!!!

Please be a part of this worthwhile event. Contact Michael Tarsia to see how your family, organization or business can contribute to this worthy cause.

Thank you in advance for your dedication to a beautiful, clean and accessible state forest system.

PLEASE COPY AND PASTE THIS ON YOUR LOCAL CLUB or MAGAZINE EVENT PAGE TO GET THE WORD OUT!

SEE YOU THERE!!!!!!!

No takers to help clean one of the largest tracts of land you can wheel for free on the east coast:confused:

You guys would rather play in technical rocks then the sand swamps and mud marshes of NJ :D

I fully understand. RC is much more fun then Wharton, but Wharton is in my backyard so I gotta help keep it clean.

You guys have fun.

I'm STILL finding sand and pine needles in my Tacoma from my trip there in 2006... :rolleyes:

Glad I didn't hydrolock my engine when I was there. I was young and dumb, well young and dumberer! I'll probably never go there again. But I respect what you're doing and good luck!

Wharton can be rather tricky depending on what season it is. Spring, Fall, and winter can be really bad depending on the rain we get. There are many holes that will swallow trucks with 40's, but sounds like you already know that. Gotta keep the passenger side on the high side of the streams so you don't suck in water and that's not always the best line. I got water in the cab twice last year and now my trucks better prepared and I'm a little wiser.

How did it go?
The clean up went great. The event filled up (3) 30 yard dumpsters, a landscape trailer full of old tires, and many piles of assorted chemicals, concrete, metal, etc. Also got a good deal of toys donated.





The group I was with filled 4 truck beds over the top + a ton of trash bags.
