On a recent Sunday morning, a dozen or so volunteers, including a few from the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection, gathered at a makeshift camp at the edge of the Great Plains for a short walk along the waterway.
The day before, as the sun rose over the horizon, volunteers had hauled up the grasslands map they had created, a map showing how much water each of the three major rivers and streams, including the Chesapeake Bay, flow into the New York-New Jersey area.
They had used it to plan their route to and from the battlefield.
As the volunteers prepared for the walk, they discussed a few questions.
What if a bird lands on the map and jumps in front of the truck?
What if it bites into a tree?
What happens if a helicopter lands on top of a building?
What if an aircraft drops an incendiary bomb on the battlefield, causing a chain reaction?
What about a wildfire?
The volunteers were all from different parts of the country, and each was unfamiliar with the terrain or the conditions they would face on the field.
But in an effort to prepare for what lay ahead, they had come up with a plan to make the walk as comfortable as possible.
They were planning to set up a tent, tent up the tents and use the tent as a makeshift battlefield.
It would provide a temporary shelter from the elements while the group navigated through the battlefields of northern New Jersey.
The group would be on the road for the next two days, carrying a small cache of supplies and supplies for the rest of the fight.
When we first started this program we were a little bit skeptical, but it is really important to do the research and get the information out there so people can make their own decisions,” said Karen Roeske, a volunteer with the New Brunswick Area Environmental Health Project, which works with the Department of Natural Resources and other organizations to ensure the protection of the natural environment.
Roeske said the group would make the trek from the border town of St. Johns to the city of New Bern, which has a population of about 1,500.
They would spend about a day on the New Bern side, then head west through New Brunswick and back to St. John.
They would then take a break to take a look at the area.
Then they would head to the river.
They decided to make a tent and set up their tent in a nearby parking lot, hoping to have it up and running by Tuesday morning.
“But we were just going to make it a temporary solution until things are more settled.””
I was really skeptical about the idea of staying in a tent,” said Roeskel, who lives in New Brunswick.
“But we were just going to make it a temporary solution until things are more settled.”
But the group had already been out there for a few hours when the sun set, and it felt like a good idea to try something new.
The group began setting up the tent, taking a shower and eating a meal in the tent.
“We knew we had to make this a little more comfortable for the veterans, but also to make sure that it was a safe place for them to be and a place where they could feel safe,” said the organizer, David Kroll.
The tents had a few shortcomings.
It wasn’t big enough for most of the group, who ranged in age from the middle of their 20s to the end of their 60s.
But there were some tents for women, and the group also had a small tent for their pets.
The tent was made out of the same wood as the tents at the campsite, which meant it had a certain amount of flexibility, but not too much, said Kroll, a former military officer who served in Iraq.
He said he also noticed that the tent didn’t have a good ventilation system, which made it a little uncomfortable to be on during the day.
“It felt like we were living in a bubble,” he said.
Roeke, who is a certified forest ranger, said the tent was comfortable enough that she was willing to take it out on the front porch to see if the weather would be nice.
But she wasn’t entirely convinced.
The tents aren’t really meant to be taken outside and stayed warm.
Roeskes camp had a fireplace and a couple of hot tubs on the porch, but neither had the comfort of the tent to be warm enough to be comfortable in.
The volunteers’ first day of the hike had been relatively easy, but they were not satisfied with their first day.
As the group began walking around, they began to feel a little antsy, Roeski said.
The rain was starting to pick up, and they felt it was getting heavier and heavier and that it would be dangerous to keep walking.
“You’re always afraid of rain,” she said.
“If the wind comes up, you don’t know where it is going to come up.”
