Full Moon Adventure Werewolf Campout Jamboree, April 22-23, 2017

30 Mar

Lets camp!  I’m thinking 25 back road miles, maybe with a stop here and there, ending at Stephens State Park for the night.  Denville town clock rolling at 2pm sound okay?  I’m bringing Stromboli!  Adventure awaits…

 

Recap: By Birdman

What an amazing adventure!  The trip started with a light rain but it was barley noticeable.  Randolph Trails and Patriot’s Path were a nice way to avoid some exhaust fumes and enjoy some scenery.  This could have passed for a Weird New Jersey ride with our stop at “The Church of the Mystic Light”.   After that rest stop, it was time to fight gravity as we ascended River rd.   All that hard work made us thirsty for some fabulous beers at Jersey Girl Brewery.   We had such a good time there that we lost track of time and barley made it to camp with light to spare.  Our team set up camp and had a fire going in no time.  We enjoyed Dean’s Stromboli and some kielbasi as we listened to some classic MTFC.

The ride back, Bill lead us back via the very quiet Waterloo Valley road.  Stopping at Carmines Pizza in Netcong for a pepperoni pie hit the spot.   Bill continued to take us via the road less traveled and showed us some nice old foundations and also some nice lake views.

Looking forward to the next one.  Here are my pics.

September 24-25, 2016 Werewolf Campout

8 Sep

Allright!, lets go camping!  Stephens State Park in Hackettstown is a nice camp destination.  We camped there 3 years ago.  From Denville, it’s a  beautiful 32 mile ride with mostly quiet roads, some lakes, tunnels, couple of rail trails.  Typical rolling terrain with three sizeable ridges.  It’s a bit of a tough ride, but you know, we roll easy and always wait up.  Bring plenty of water & snacks.  Shorter options are available for the ride home. I’d like to arrive at camp with a bit of daylight left, so lets meet up at Denville clocktower at 3:30, rolling at 4.  Please bring lights just in case.  I’m not planning any car support or firewood drops.  Convenience stores, restaurants and liquor stores are close by camp.  I think we’ll do fine with found wood around the site, or if needed Hackettstown has a store with firewood bundles.   Psyched!  Hope you can make it!  Heavy steady rain cancels.  Let me know if you’re coming. Awooooo!  -Dogman

November 14, 2015 Beer Ride

2 Nov

Well, its that time of year again when we saddle up our steeds and take a ride up to one of our favorite breweries.

Let’s meet up at the clock tower in Denville at 11:30  http://www.gmap-pedometer.com/?r=4320577
We will enjoy a beautiful ride through the Rockaway Valley where we might get lucky and see some alpacas a yak and a llama. We’ll also check out some scenic views of the Butler Reservoir. The destination will be the High Point Brewery (14 miles one way). They will have a tour of the brewery starting at 2pm. Once there, we will be enjoying a nice selection of Ramstein beer. http://ramsteinbeer.com/flagships/
After we sample and load up with beer(I’m talking about loading up the panniers and porteur racks 😉, we’ll cycle back with beautiful views of the Boonton Reservoirs and Pyramid Mountain.
This will be a casual pace and a no drop ride. I will offer some challenges to anybody who wants a workout.

22 Sep

The man in the moon has a neat little show lined up for us on Sunday.  Lets meet up 9:00pm at Grace Lord Park in Boonton.  Check out the gmap link, we will meet at the top of the hill in the park, I think there is a town clock nearby the fountain, gazebo and playground.  We will saddle up and head uphill to enjoy the show.  There are quite a few hilltop viewing options around.  We can choose as we go.   Peak eclipse is around 10:30.  I hope to ride with you!
