Damn, how'd I miss this for so long?
Nice job Rob.

I'm gonna be all over this. I live maybe 40 minutes from the start (North). The first 45+ degree weekend I get and I'm gone.
Thanks

I enjoyed the report it looks like you all had a great time. I have been longing to get off the street for a while now this is a ride I could see myself doing. A question for ROB23 I see you were on a f650gs how was the bike. I have my eye on a used 03 Dakar, I saw the new KLR at the bike show it was nice but the BMW just is just calling my name. I also want to do some long hauls and camping this summer. Can you tell me how you like the F bike and how it was on this particular ride.

Regards JD

[quote=johnpitts01 Peapack-Gladstone area were the most fun, but the entire route was a blast..[/quote]

I lived in Gladstone for 20 years. I kinda miss the roads around there- glad someone else is getting to enjoy them.

watch out for the cowboys in blue crown vics.

Heads up...I routinely ride the routes from 195 to 539/70 Wawa...

Over the last month, the military has put up a fence at the end of Colliers Mill WMA (where colliers mill meets the military property)...The fence breaks up the route, but all you need to do is detour out to 539, and re-enter the route at the next dirt road after the visible fence ends. Sounds confusing, but it's really not..

Word of caution. If you try to go around the fence, you'll make it about a quarter mile up the trail, spend the next hour getting your bike out of a swamp...Don't ask me how I know...

Feb./Mar. I'll do some weekend rides, too. I'm near Mt. Laurel, so I head into the Pines regularly on Sunday mornings, & now that I've got a DL650 those sand roads are calling me.

YOUR WELCOME, I love beer..




I just spent a lot of time combing over the trail and adding in MORE DIRT espeically in the northern half of the state. This year I'll be starting from 287 and Skyline drive and hitting up Split Rock before going north to High Point. I also added some nice vantage points like Sunrise Mountain.

This year we'll be zig zagging through all the major forest in the pines. A vast upgrade from last year's Section 5 route.

I'm also crossing over into Mauricetown and adding in some nice stuff from that side down in Hammer Country.

I'm planning on hosting a ride on 06/20-22nd (longest period of daylight of the year).

This year's route should be a full 1k and may take a full four days of ridding to complete it in comfort.

I will be pre-ridding the route soon so email me if your interested in laying down some tracks..

Excellent. More terrain is good. I'm planning on riding the route on my Super Sherpa, probably in June/July timeframe. I'm not sure I can make the 6/20-22 ride you have planned, but if it works, I'm in. I have a plan to spend a day or so in Wildwood at the southern end of the ride, and get some time on the beach in.

To get the original TNJT route set to load on my eTrex Legend, I had to massage it a bit in Mapsource. I combined two of the routes into other routes to get it down to the 20-route limit for the GPS. If it gets too much bigger I might have to split it up between two GPSes, or upgrade my GPS technology.

Thanks for all your work!

I just finished the latest rough draft last night. Going to pre-ride some of it this weekend.

I used via points instead of waypoints to save on memory. I also made each route about 30 via points each so it should load to most gps units without truncating the route. My eTrex Legend Cx was able to load all routes and maps with 128mb micro sd.

As far as beaches go my personal favorite is Island Beach State Park at the end of Seaside Heights/Island Beach State Park. When your done with the beach hit up the bars on the boardwalk in Seaside. LBI is good too. If your down by Wildwood, Avalon has a nice beach. All these spots are within an hour from the trail once your south of 1-95.

If anyone wants to join us in June email me.

Couldn't fit it into my GPS either... I am going to try converting the route into a loadable map tonight then attempt following the line.
Looking foward to riding
