    This year we will have a "theme", "In search of the Jersey Devil".

    Prizes for spotting the JD on the routes. Look out for this guy!

    On the calendar!!

    Looks like the DEVIL is riding an HP2!! or is that Jimmy Lewis?

    I missed my first 500/600 last year after making about 8 or 9 straight and it has been bugging me so I started prepping the "new to me" bike already. I will be ready this year to float some sand and explore some trails!
    * She's almost ready for some South Jersey sand and water.

    Thanks Jack for putting this amazing event together!

    Sno Dawg stepping up the game . We should have a blast this year . If you want to get some miles in on that thing let me know and we can make a day of it . Going to try and get some ridding in before school lets out and work gets busy . Of course you know I want to try that thing !

    I normally organize a Halloween Camp-n-Ride that weekend, so I will probably just have to steer the local crew down there. You always put on a quality event, especially the meticulous GPS track work you do and running a sweeper / cut-off crew. It really is nice to attend an event when the organizers make every effort to make sure no one is stuck out in the bush overnight.

    P.S. - I'm not sure how well that logo image transfers to a T-shirt, but it's pretty awesome and I can't wait to see.

    Jack, found a spot for the school sticker. Should protect the tool box from scratches!

    Our CT - NY - VT Based Crew will be there again this year. Last year was our first and we had a ball, one of the best organized events I have ridden in my 30+ years of off road riding. I know for a fact we will have a bigger crew than last year.

    Looking forward to it! I had to cancel last minute last year due to the 690 needing a full rebuild after 3000 miles :/

    I hope the stars align this year!!!

    * Room reserved!

    For those of you afraid of sand, consider two things. 1st, once you figure out the technique, it's actually lots of fun. 2nd, the falls are much MUCH softer!

    I tell people it's like learning how to do Powder snow. If you are an East Coast skier, you don't get to see much. But if you spend the time and money to go out West, you may be lucky to catch a nice powder day. For skiers that is absolute bliss.

    Check out this video. The Peruvian Cirque at Snowbird is considered one of the best ski experiences you can have accessed by a ski lift. The 1st turn is basically straight downhill. Turn the sound off. The fellow is a snowboarder, for goodness sake!



    We are very fortunate in NJ to have hundreds of miles of deep powder in the Pine Barrens. Just learn the technique, and you will never get enough.
