    A sad day.

    With Corzine being the hissy fit crybaby that he is, the state parks are offically closed as of 12:01 am Wednesday morning, unless a budget gets passed by then, which the probability of me getting struck by lightning 4 times in 5 seconds is much better. Tomorrow is a scheduled road ride, the state parks are always jammed full on the 4th, so that is not in the card. Which means today was more than likely the last day I'll see riding on the trails for awhile, unless I do road trips which would just wind up being on weekends it just gets too expensive with fuel prices being where they are. It really makes the aquisition of the Pista seem like a really good move, which it was to begin with. So it seems as for now until this mess is all cleared up, I'll be doing urban on the Cowan. But oh well, life will go on.

    The governor is being to much of a spoiled brat to allow one to go with out his planned tax hike included.

    so what happens to the trails? They just get gated and you get fined if they catch you riding them?
    Or do they actually like demolish them?

    an' put up shopping malls and parking lots
    If you can't be a good example, then you'll just have to be a horrible warning.

    the atlantic city casinos are shutting down also, which is going to cost the state $2 million a day in tax revenue, not to mention all the jobs put on hold

    Theres always Chimney rock, Hartshorne, and other county run places.

    That or just ride your bike into the state park anyway. If it's closed, that means that there probably aren't any rangers there either. And if they are patrolling, I seriuosly think they'd be cool.
