    I got my wife into going to lakes too. In fact, I prefer it now. I'd rather save my beach trips for going somewhere truly magical, like Hawaii (or any tropical destination). Clearwater Beach Florida has the softest sand I've ever sat on. It's almost like flour.

    Thanks. Never been to a beach in DE so now I have a list to choose from.

    Which beach in Delaware is nicer than Long Beach Island/Spray Beach?

    Jersey has some really scenic areas that can make you question yourself (or forget) if you are still in NJ. They are nowhere near the shithole cities of Newark, Camden, Trenton, etc... The high theft tax rate is fucking horrible though. It’s disorganized plunder with no limits. There’s decent work here though, if you have marketable skills.

    Alpine Touring (skinning) vs. hiking

    I’ve done some night riding on the Columbia Trail, in NJ. That’s a neat spot to ride after dark. Pitch black, with very little visible sky, but once night vision kicks in, you can see clearly, as this was an old railroad line. The light cinder is such a contrast to everything else. The first night I rode there I was taking a safety break on a bench near Ken Lockwood George when I heard something very large crashing through the woods in front of me. Scared the shit out of me. I jumped on my bike so fast I forgot to grab my water bottle. Was probably a deer, but bear was on my nerves. Found the bottle the next day. I have also done a bunch of night rides on the Capoolong Creek/Landsdown Trail with just a 1W CREE light with great success. I believe this trail goes through @Shadows family’s lands. Once, I accidentally found a group night ride of about 10 people at the Nassau Trails. I was going to leave, but I rode with them for a while and had one of my more fun rides ever. I’d love to do some VT rides at night.

    Try some XC cross-country? I've been out XCing at night after fresh snowfall under moon light and it was surreal. Didn't even need my headlamp.

    We did a long weekend up by Lake Champlain, close to Canada. Right on the lake. It was beautiful. VBRO'd a place that had a patio facing the lake and a grill.

    Killy is beautiful when everything is all green and lush. Smells wonderful.
