1st Annual Loco Libre Gear Piney Woods Hang/November 4,5,6/Batona Camp, NJ

We've been kicking this around for a while and decided WHY NOT! Make room on your calenders for November 4,5,6, 2016 for the 1st Annual Loco Libre Gear Piney Woods Hang. This will be a great weekend of relaxing in the infamous Jersey Pine Barrens. While I can't promise the Jersey Devil will show up I can promise the crew from Loco Libre Gear will! We have the Batona Camp on Carranza Road (directions to come) from noon Friday until noon Sunday.

You can sign up HERE

Batona Campsite is located at GPS coordinates N 39 46.639 W 74 37.883

Hey George!

Where do the proceeds of the raffle go?

Hey Sarge! They will be used to cover the costs of food. Anything left over will be donated,most likely to a conservation group involved with the pine barrens. I'll have to cross that bridge when we get to it as I don't really expect the raffle to cover food on our first outing, but we'll see.
