When Fred Lobdell stated that you could get this and Salem County in a half day,
I was skeptical. It turned out my skepticism was misplaced.
landfill area east of Seabrook - I thought the area to the east in the soybean
field was as high if not higher.
area at Northville - I can work with #49. Touch and go.
seven areas north of Seabrook - On NJ 77 there is a blue camping sign at Griers Lane.
Otherwise, the street sign is small. Drove on a dirt road south to the
larger area and walked up the small hill to the top. I could see the areas to
the north, west, and southeast and I was clearly higher. For the area to the
northwest, it was planted in corn. You could see a slight rise toward the
middle of the area. I walked in a ways but found nothing of significance.
Previous reports indicated it is lower than the larger area anyway.
three areas near Hopewell - The large area is a tree nursery.
I felt the highest ground was to the east of the road.
Scoping to the northeast indicated the other two areas were clearly lower.
