Last weekend was my first (and hopefully not last) camping/riding trip in the NJ Pine Barrens. Drove down Friday night, setup camp, started a fire and went to bed. Saturday morning my buddy and I woke up, unloaded the bikes (klx 250 "mine" and a huskey 310) and meet our "tour guide" around 9. I was having a blast. Being relatively new to sand I had quite the learning curve to over come. Around 1ish our tour guide left us to our own devices. So we returned to camp to fill up, I was feeling pretty confindent only fell over twice once in some slick mud and the other time spinning around in some soft sand. Off we went to explore the pines Whoops everywhere Big Puddles, Go Arounds and long streches of sugar sand far as the eye could see. Best day I've had riding to date. We reach the halfway point of the huskey's gas tank and start heading back to camp. I am really starting to get into the groove getting air on every whoop skipping a few here and there. Then I come off a whoop with my wheel turned ever so slightly.... I land and head right off the trail at 35mph and whats right at the edge of the trail? This lovely tree that just wanted a hug. The top hit is my handle bars no idea what the bottom one is. I caught the tree with my left shoulder, rolled landed on my back and slid a few feet. Got up dusted myself off and went looking for my bike. Got back on and rode the trail nice and slow. My buddy had turned around and came looking for me by then. We headed back to the camp my shoulder hurting a little but not to bad. However by about 6pm my whole arm was hard to move my wrist had swollen and I was in pain. Sunday we drove back and I went to the ER. Lucky for me nothing broken. Today I feel pretty good slight pain in the back of the shoulder if I move to fast or sneeze. My handguards saved my hands no damage to my little fingers at all. I bought those the week before, for this trip. So that was my first crash I've learned that you can't stop focusing even for a second and that gear is good.
