That's a ride you had to really want to do. It rained and rained in New Jersey this weekend. I bet you rode 300 miles at least of the 500 in the rain. The best thing you could say about that run is that the Pine Barons is mostly sand and not sticky clay mud. But it was still cold and wet with hours in the saddle
I enjoyed another amazing weekend riding with friends. We didn’t come close to completing 500 miles but boy did we enjoy the Pines. Friday and Sunday were beautiful fall days where Saturday we had rain. I tell people “if you didn’t ride in the rain this year, you didn’t ride”.
This is my first dual sport event where I needed a GPS to navigate. I used my iPhone with the app Galileo Pro which cost $3.99. I was able to stay on track with no problem and after using it I’m not sure I need to spend $500 for a Garmin. I did have a problem on Saturday when we left the route then tried to get back on. I since figured it out so I’m good now to rock out another ride. The problem with learning to navigate using electronics is that you don’t know what you don’t know until you get out there. The route was setup in tracks where most of my experience came in using waypoints when boating. I bought the top of the line Garmin with maps in 1996 for my fishing boat and I could navigate on the darkest night.
Here’s a few pictures of our weekend.
Awesome. I feel left out by distance but the photo's make up for it just a bit.
Stuck in a puddle or stuck in a river, water makes for a good beerfire story.
Board of directors eh? I recognize 3 out of the 5 from post office bulletin board pictures. Must be early cause I see a coffee cup from a restaurant which means it's really for coffee or tea. Coffee cup in camp, well now that's a different story. bwahaha
Haha I know, I know! For shame. But I had some family stuff over the weekend and couldn’t make it work. Hope you guys all had fun on our trails! The ride is great for bringing some money to town, and hopefully positive attention to the forest. We ride all year, come back!
Trail conditions around the Mountain Fleet Headquarters (MF HQ) have been a little sketchy but decided to post one of the videos I've been working on since my riding season ended last November.
As some people who know me, I'm a serious person with some serious issues. Wait, that didn't sound...

My plan is to ride the...
Adam-in-Nevada and I returned Sunday to sample more of a fairly large ridding area beginning about where we had quit last time outside of the Moon Rocks Area. We've yet to define the boundaries. The variety of terrain there, all hosted in a deeply weathered granite region, made for endless...
Hey guys! I live on Vancouver island and was thinking about heading over to San Juan island in the early spring on the TW for a couple nights of camping. I have never been over there and thought about checking it out. Anyone ever spend any time over there? Any good spots for riding or camping?
