    a jersey gtg sopt

    this mite b a trip for some but i know of a spot right on the nj/pa boarder in jersey. its at exit 1 or rt 80. you go thru the 3 min lite (yes the lite takes 3 minutes to change from red to green) you go about 5 or 7 miles past the light til you see a sign for the cooper mines and parking is on the left hand side of the road. you cross the street and hike about a quater mile up the trail to the top of the mines. mind u its not an easy climb. there are rocks up there for every kind of rig except scale rigs. but on the side of the parking lot there is a old creek bed thats good for scale rigs. active can vouch for me bout the rocks up on top of the mines. and there is also a camp ground on the same road efore the mines.

    i know exactly where that is. used to go camping there all the time. i think the camp site is called worthington??? or something like that....LOL and that light takes freakin forever!!!! that road used to be a 2 lane..but a landslide took out the outer lane. thus the 1/2 hr. red light ya gotta sit through while waiting for on-coming traffic... def. a good spot to crawl.

    that would be it sir. the ONLY thing that sucks is that you cross into jersey (on rt. 80) for literally 1/4 mile. (the exit is right after the bridge ends) to get back into PA you gotta pay a toll. i know, i know, it's only a buck. but hey, a dollar's a dollar and we're in a recession here! seriously though, it is very nice over there. def. worth checking out.

    P.S. if you decide to venture out there........HAVE FUN SITTING AT THAT LIGHT>>>>>IT"S A LONG ONE!!!!!!!!

    the only down side about going to the mines is its a long steep walk to get to the top and if you are out of shape its gona make you winded. quirk and active can tell you bout the walk up there
