Tw-200 KLX-250 Pine Barrens Adventure Part IV

It was 6:15am and I was VERY psyched..........Mustang was on his way over and then we were heading down to the NJ Pine Barrens for another adventure. The TW-had a few upgrades since the last 3 trips...FMF Turbinecore2 silencer, rejetted carb, Acerbis hand guards and an O-ring chain.

Packed up and ready to go!

We were headed to Hammoton NJ where the Pine Barrens 300 is purported to start. We were in search of some harder terrain......The deep sand can get frustrating after awhile...

We had a traffic free drive down the NJ Turnpike to Exit 7 where the van started to have trouble.....The engine light came on and it didn't sound too great either..

We scooted into the parking lot of an auto parts store and asked where the nearest mechanic was...........

A nice bunch of guys........They said we could launch from their lot and they would take a look at the van while we rode.......Mustang has his "Game Face" on....."I'm NOT going to pay a lot for that muffler!"

Just a mile or two down the road was the Wharton National Forrest and we headed down a nice packed dirt road and into our 4th Pine Barrens adventure:-) I was now able to practice all the stuff I learned at MX School last week!

Unfortunately the terrain was not much better than we had experienced on earlier trips and these trails were LOADED with these giant puddles.....Having had experience with these unpredictable bike eating mud traps; I skirted what I could but some you just had to go through......

Others a couple feet! The problem was, we couldn't tell one from the other in the mud stained water......

It was a HOT day...I went through nearly 1/2 gallon of water on our many breaks from the brutal heat...The thing was it was actually much cooler when you were moving...

And there was no escaping the deep sand..........I found that keeping my speed up and shifting my weight back, kept me surpisingly in control in the deep stuff......at least most of the time:-)
