Your probably only a couple of hours from Rausch Creek in PA.

Leave Sunday nite stay at a motel in the nearby town.

Just recently wheeled there for the first time, great off-road park!

Doubt we'll be able to get the truck in fit enough shape tomorrow to wheel, but maybe next time . . .

I would be interested, but I am trying to stay away from anywhere near and around DC Sunday through Tuesday.

Luis- That's a great idea if I had few days. It looks like it will take 3+ hrs to get to Rausch Creek. The wife has only authorized a day trip. With the day trip restriction I want to limit my time on the road to 4hrs. max.



Jonathan- I hear you. This place is going to be craze. Thankfully I am 38 miles (straight line distance) from DC so the event will have little effect on me . Staying Local or heading west is the plan. I guess from the lack of response most folks are working Monday. Either way I an up for a run. There are some trails in Jefferson National Forest but itís been years since I been there. Do you know of any spots?

Charles is the man to talk to. I have yet to wheel around here. I am off tomorrow and might be interested.

The Dry Creek trail in GWNF is just outside Harrisonburg. Charles took me there once. Nice run from his place. Around 200 miles each way for me. Janey is on the operating table getting a new rear cross member so he would have to take the 90 if he went.

Is Dry Creek west of Harrisionburg on the West Virginia Boarder? I was up there 5 years ago with my 4-Runner but trying to find it today would be a crap shoot.

Charles
Are you up for a run?

Leave NOVA around 0800? We can be in Harrisionburg by 1000.

Cheers
Gregg

Dry Creek is a fun ride. You might want to look up Dunkle Hollow as well.

I typically make RC a day trip. Really not that far from NOVA.
