From Pennington to Sergeantsville, yards were festooned with signs. "Stop the PennEast Pipeline." "Stop the Fracking Pipeline." "Save the Sourlands." We noticed a lot more "no trespassing" signs, which are part of the strategy to keep PennEast surveyors off people's land and force them to take each landowner to court individually, thus costing PennEast both time and money. So far, few landowners are granting permission.
At the corner of Seabrook and Brookville Hollow was a "posted and patrolled" sign.
We riffed on that one, imagining mercenaries guarding the woods, shooting first and asking questions later, burying the bodies.
Eventually we got to Sergeantsville, where the gawked at the Inn that caught fire on March 9.
Geez. Are we going to lose one iconic building each spring? At least this one is going to be rebuilt. Peacock's has been leveled.
