    I was thinking about going down this weekend but haven't checked the forecast lately. The snow will probably be gone by then.

    temperatures are above freezing, I don't think there will be much snow/ice left.
    The picture I added is from one of the most shadiest trails.
    You better start around noon and bring your scuba gear, going to be wet!

    Mud is not fun, and riding in mud is not good for the trails. I avoid it at as much as possible, I HATE mud.

    Definitely looks questionable for Sunday right now, unless the forecast changes.

    Well, the wife let me take her "Electric guitar" down to the 100 acre wood to wander around a little. Looks like Brendon Byrne will be ready by this weekend. Here's Butler's Place:

    If it is not raining that much Sunday morning, I might just give it a try with the little Honda.

    Ha ha ha yeah we got back from skiing/ snowboarding in PA today and I was gonna say the snow was almost gone here.

    I hope the rain this weekend washes the poison off the road and I can get my road bikes out.

    Great, just as I have been mapping to work my way down to Colliers mills (I believe this is in Jackson Twp) Ride a bit there and then to eventually work my way down south, BB State, then Wharton.
    So hopefully the news outlet will follow up and report on this guy's side of the story to know what made him think this was the right thing to do.

    The Jersey Devil made him do it. :-)

    Don't let stories like this stop you from living life. Humans are like animals, fairly predictable until they aren't. Who knows what made him snap. Most likely it wasn't even related to these two kids, but they were an easier target in the moment than dealing with his real source of frustration.

    Good to see another KLR in the area. If you see a BigGreenKlr, flag me down.

    Taking Wednesday afternoon off to take advantage of the warmer temps. Don't know if Ill be doing forked river, bass river, wharton, or BTB yet though, too many options! I did down size over the winter to an older KTM 300 so this will be its maiden voyage. Interested to see how it feels compared to the ole 625!
