Two KTMs and the Grand Canyon

Two KTMs and the Grand Canyon

“Babe. Chris asked me to go do that Grand Canyon dirtbike thing with him.”
“Okay. You should do it! When is it?”
“Tuesday.”
“Oh.”
“We’re driving out.”
“Really?”
…..

And just like that, with a few days notice my husband Kenny loaded two dirtbikes in the back of his pickup and drove from Long Island to the edge of California. See? I’m not the only one around here who impulsively heads off galavanting.

In two days time, Kenny and his friend Chris were in Moab, Utah where they spent a day riding. The following morning, they reloaded their bikes in the truck and were off to Primm, Nevada. That’s where they ditched the truck and set off across the desert to Bar 10 Ranch to begin the Grand Canyon leg of their trip.

The pictures Kenny sent of the rugged desolation were so beautiful. Here are a few:

Prompt: Three pics you’ve never shared

Sunday Funday in the New Jersey Pine Barrens

Sunday Funday in the New Jersey Pine Barrens

On Sunday Kenny and I packed our little dirty bikes into the truck and set of for the pine barrens in New Jersey.

Our destination was Wharton State Forest. But not before stopping by Might Joe’s for a quick picture. I’d been there once before but it was after dark and I couldn’t get a good look at the big monkey. He’s pretty awesome.

It’s always fun to ride with my favorite fellow unicorn hunters 🙂

For people not familiar with New Jersey and it’s diverse natural areas, I bet this isn’t what you think of:

The pine barrens are super sugar sandy and yet, as the name implies are a pine forest. It is a pretty interesting landscape.

Mixed in with the sandy roads are also some giganto puddles. What lies beneath is often nasty stuff that might suction your bike in.

This pic of our friend from a couple years ago illustrates that quite nicely 🙂
