    The Continuing Adventures of Moto!!!

    In order to give the appearance of me being organized, I have decided to start this thread to chronicle my adventures!!! Today, I decided to hit da Moon with a few of my friends!!! Ronnie, Sammy, Ozzy, and I had a great time at da Moon!!! Gotta love MP3 players...LOL!!! I rode from the main gate up past the tennis courts as a kind of warm up. Then I hit the trails beginning with Rock Waterfall, rolling up onto Big Blue, then I decided to check out the new re-route on Buddy's!!! It is awesome...the whole trail is amazing!!! From there, I rode down the paved road and into The Dark. At this point, I was really riding well and became delusional and decided I was going to ride up Screamer...by the time I got to Squeezer gravity had dealt me a swift slap to the face so I turned around. I concluded my ride with Farm Road, MoZee, Peak-a-Boo, and the paved road out to my car. All in all, I did 4 miles in 41 minutes...not too shabby!!! You just gotta nail it, Jim!!!

    moto - since it sounded like lee tried to kill everyone with the hills last ride , maybe you can figure out the best route to take so it feels like you're always going down hill

    glad you got to ride; seems like you had a good day too.

    Moon x Three

    Three times at da Moon in the last two days!!! I started off with a great ride yesterday morning followed a great walk with my adorable girlfriend last night...great way to spend a Sunday!!! Woke up relatively early this morning, made some eggs and turkey bacon for breakfast and aimed the Honda towards da Moon!!! Had a great ride, really picked up the pace the last few times I have ridden!!! Ran into a guy at Deacon, didn't catch his name, but he said he was going to hit up the Wednesday night ride....he was riding a really nice black and red Specialized!!!

    I finally made it all the way up the hill coming off TTS up to 8...hey hill, how do you like me now? I rode TTS down to the original 8 and was hammering through there better than I ever have...that's when I hit a little tombstone coming into a corner and went down pretty good!!! I thought chicks digges scars...but mine doesn't like it!!! LOL!!!

    Sunday at da Moon!!!

    Today was a family day at da Moon!!! I rode while my girlfriend, Lisa and her daughter Brittany took a nature hike!!! I started out on Nature's Way 1 to 8...rode 8 all the way up to T-Rex1!!! From there I toured the campground and descended the big stinky downhill to the new extension of Watkins. I changed a flat and proceeded up the paved road from the lake to Buddy's and up Twister!!! From there, I just hit the paved road and out to the car!!! What an amazing day at da Moon!!!

    Happy MoonDay!!!

    Today, I visited the Moon again without the Mono!!! Lisa and I decided to hit da Moon for a little nature hike!!! Trails are in beautiful shape!!! We did a little trail cleaning as we went. I introduced her to Skinny's and she really liked it!!!

    On our way out we stopped at Deacon in order to check my sugar and we were surprised to see a well-known celebrity enjoying the man-made obstacles at da Moon!!!

    Glorious Day at Da Moon!!!

    Third day in a row at da Moon with beautiful weather!!! It doesn't get much better than this!!! I was joined today by Lisa and her son, Brandon!!! Since Brandon is still handicapped by his cast...Lisa and Brandon decided to do a nature walk!!! While they were enjoying their walk I was putting my legs and lungs to the test!!! I started out from the Marina. I took the extension of Watkins and from there jumped Skinny's and then up to the campground. I rode up T-Rex 2 and had all intentions of riding T-Rex1, but I was pretty tuckered so I decided to take a raincheck on that one today. I hooked onto 8 by the old stone steps and rode down to Deacon and back to the Marina. It was a great ride on a great day!!! Looking forward to the Wednesday night ride tomorrow!!!

    Urban Pedal Warfare

    Today, I decided to do a nice town ride!!! So me and the Mono hit the rail bed in Swoyersville and headed off towards Exeter and West Pittston. It was a great ride until I got to Exeter and heard the dreaded woosh of air from my back tire. Then reality slapped me when I realized I left my tools and spare tube in my car!!! Walked about three blocks to Sickler's for a new tube. The guy was really great!!! I was about 30 cents short, but he hooked me up. Then let me borrow a pedal wrench and their shop pump!!! Got going again and turned my trusty steed towards home and off I went!!! All in all, it was a great ride...just over 8 1/2 miles and an hour and 8 minutes riding time!!!

    Roadpirate's Welcome Back/Happy Birthday Ride

    What a great time at da Moon yesterday!!! We were celebrating Roadpirate's birthday and return to da Moon after getting his unfortunate skateboarding accident!!! It was Roadpirate, Dirtrider6, Buddy123 with Buddy and Barney, tuffgrl, and mini. We were joined by NEPMTBA, Justingkoolaid, and RRHines for an amazing ride!!! We started off from the big pavilion down by the lake up past the maintenance buildings to Deacon. We all started up the service road, but I ended up riding that hill three times because Barney decided he wan't ready to join the ride yet...LOL!!! We then hit Ledgeview, 8, Edge, T-Rex 2. Roadpirate and I opted out of doing Screamer. Off to the pavilion for some great company and some good eats!!! Just wanted to thank everyone for helping make Brandon's return such a special one. Thank you!!!

    New Toy!!!

    Lisa and I got new phones the other day!!! We had Straight Talk phones and they worked great, but I lost coverage from outside of Luzerne all the way up to da Moon!!! Went to Verizon and got Samsung Galaxy Stellars. Download an app called Move! Bike Computer...Love It!!! You can map your ride and download it to Google earth!!!

    Beautiful day for a Moon landing!!!

    Today Lisa, Brandon, and I decided to enjoy the beautiful weather at da Moon!!! Lisa and Brandon decided to head out on Nature's Way1 while I was getting ready for the ride!!! Good thing I hung behind because another rider needed my assistance in the form of borrowing my cell phone because he locked his keys in his car. Once everything was squared away, I set out on my journey to join Brandon at the lake. I rode down the paved road and ducked in on Peek-a-Boo and down to the lake. I decided to introduce Brandon to Skinny's, from there we ducked onto 8 rode that down the cut-out on the first section. We ended our ride by enjoying Ledgeview and the service road down by Maintenance and out the road!!! It was a great ride with no injuries other than being sore when we got home!!!

    Beautiful day at da Moon!!!

    Yesterday was far too beautiful of a day to not be at da Moon!!! Since I had not really been doing any serious riding for a few weeks, I decided to take an easier route!!! I started out on Nature's Way1 to What. From the end of what I jumped out on the service road and up towards Nature's Way1. I then jumped on the paved road and headed up past the tennis courts to Big Blue!!! As I approached the Nature Center I felt an odd sensation on the trail...rear tire was losing air!!! Not a problem....I had my tire tools, a tube, and a pump with me! Now for the problem...I forget my wrench for the rear axle bolts back in the car...well, I guess it was a nice day for a walk, too...LOL!!!

    Damn!!!

    Brandon and I were out tooling around town on our bikes yesterday when I ran over a big rock under the leaves...the impact caused such pain in my right foot I had no choice but to see the doctor today. He said I have plantar fascitis! I am on some powerful anti-inflammatories and I am supposed to stay off my feet as much as possible! I hope this gets better soon!

    Life on da Moon!!!

    Brandon and I hit up da Moon on Monday for a Veteran's Day ride!!! The weather was absolutely amazing and it was so great to ride da Moon again!!! This morning, I once again hit up da Moon and had a great ride, despite still nursing a tender foot!!!

    It's That Time!!!

    I got out for a shakedown ride on my new Giant Talon yesterday...thanks to Dave at Valley Cycles for such a great deal!!! I felt like I was flying, well, at least while I was able to breathe decently...I have not been riding and exercising like I should be!!!

    Guess what time it is!!! If you guessed sweatpants, duct tape, and hiking boots time...you are absolutely CORRECT!!! Enjoy the ensuing pictures of the madness about to ensue!!!
