    Thanks for the welcome fellas!

    I've surfed NJ a fair amount in the past, but I haven't done a tremendous amount of exploration - so I'm looking forward to uncovering some secrets.

    It is definitely a faster pace up here, which is logical due to new york influence. Yesterday, I went west of the parkway, up 34N, and it was all farmland and it looked like some cool park areas. So, I was stoked to find the parks. I was talking with someone up north a bit, and he was telling me about some really good mountain biking - I am thinking I might have to get into that up here. I tried it in Delaware once, and it was a blast and an awesome workout.

    If anyone else has any goto restaurants/bars/etc, let me know! Where I am in Tinton Falls, it seems like there is something around every corner.

    I grew up the next town over in CN.

    Door brook park is very close to you, they have some nice basketball courts and a roller hockey rink (I believe).

    Delicious Orchards is a must (rt 34)! stay away this week though, they have lines out the door from people picking up pies for thanksgiving.

    Collingswood flea market is awesome if you are looking for completely random stuff (take 34 south, its before the circle.)

    Bruce Springsteen has a farm on the corner of Muhlenbrink & Laird roads in colts neck

    Best way to the beach is 34 south to belmar BLVD or 18 south to the last exit.

    hartshorne is very big and has a couple different entrances. i'd strongly suggest the rocky point entrance. it's much more secluded and in my opinion better for hiking. it's basically the corner of land at the intersection of the shrewbury and navesink rivers. from a few spots you can see both rivers and the ocean. you can string together a very long and strenuous hike if you'd like. i've been going there for years and know the place like the back of my hand. the mtn bike trails are top notch as well.

    when the weather warms, i'd also suggest kayaking around the navesink. it's really nice, especially up and down teh coast of hartshorne.

    Hartshorne and Cheesequake are both fun spots to mountain bike. The bike trail on Sandy Hook is nice, but more of a road ride.

    nice! I am definitely going to looking into getting a mtn bike. There are just too many nice, and flat days.

    Allaire = good mountain biking as well. Hartshorne is the shiz though. Great single track with many switchbacks. Some smooth speedy sections mixed with sketchy techincal sections! So much fun!!
