Rausch Creek, Mar 26-28

“Final” Update

We're on for Mar 26-28 at Rausch Creek Offroad Park near Tremont, PA! Looks like we’ll have folks from NH, NY, NJ, PA, MD, and VA coming. A few Discos too.

Rausch Creek is smaller than Paragon; 1000 acres but the guy there said they try to keep the crowds small at about 100 trucks or so. Hopefully no ATVs or Xterras flying in front your truck! From the few people I heard who have been, it sounds like a good place.

Cost is $10/year membership per person and $25/day/truck. They say that they’ll work out some sort of pro-rated charge for half-day riding.
http://www.rauschcreekoffroadpark.com/faq.asp

Don’t forget to bring maps:

There's a Comfort Inn that charges about $65 per night, no matter the number of guests in the room. Nearest restaurant/bar, he said, is about 10 minutes away from there though.
http://www.rauschcreekoffroadpark.com/lodging.asp

There are two camping options: http://www.rauschcreekoffroadpark.com/camping.asp
-Free at the staging area of Rausch Creek. Primative, i.e. no running water, single porta-john, fire rings
-Echo Valley Campground. $9/night/single-person tent or $18/night/family sized tent. Restaurant, water, shower, toilets, fire rings, BYOB (can coolers preferred) and there’s an ABC store a few miles away. Judy is whom I talked with.
Looks like CVC and Jorge will be at the motel and everyone else is camping.

Weather: Raining Friday, sunny on Sat/Sun http://www.weather.com/weather/local...om=search_city

I asked about work-for-admission and he said the way they work it is that if you do no-kidding organized trail maintenance in the morning, he'll let you ride for free in the afternoon. (I think I'll budget now for the $25.)

I'm going to take Friday off and ride on Fri, Sat, and head home on Sun. I guess we could always move over to Paragon on Sat if we think the trails are better there. It's a good backup plan.

It looks like 20-25 trucks, all together:
Ken Loy, 94 D-90, Insane trails
Tyler Kinghorn, 94 D-90, Deep water
Peter Miller, RRC, anything with mud, Sat AM arrival
Chris von Czoernig,94 D-90 and Disco/Freelander?, some trees with his door
George Parthmer, 95 D-90, to get some pics for a Bio
Jorge, D-90 looking for rocks, Sat AM arrival
Randy Kremer, In Jorge’s D-90, Anything!
Dante A. Lellos, 94 D-90, to get at least one wheel in the air
Paul Ford, Disco2, Disco huh
Trevor Griffiths and his "small group" of 15+ trucks
Mike Hippert, 94 D-90, anything with the truck top off but his own top on

Meeting place is the MX park. http://www.rauschcreekoffroadpark.com/directions.asp
Fri: Noon; Sat: 9AM; Sun 9AM
They check folks in, preferably, between 8:30 and 10:00.

For those traveling from the south (VA/PA), rendezvous en route, CB channel 10:
First meeting place we planned is exit 8 on I-83 (Glen Rock). Left at the bottom of ramp to a little clearing on the right. Hoping to depart 9ish.
Next is Manada Hill/ Hershey RTE 39 (Exit 44?) off I-81. Left off the ramp and look for a Perkins -type restaurant on the left. Hoping to depart 10.30 ish
Trevor Griffiths figures to have time to check in at Echo Valley before going up to the Park.

What do ya think??? Did I miss anything?

I think I am in if I can hold my rig together until then. All of the bailing wire, duct tape and hose clamps I have put on this winter to delay repair issues is coming loose. I can't wait for warmer weather!

Is anyone else thinking of caming out? I know it might be cold, but this college kid has no money.

I had posted earlier about joining up with you guys, but hadn't heard back. Are you guys okay if we join up with you? I didn't want to just jump in. We will have some D90's but mostly Discos and Classics. Probably no more than 10 vehicles.

Wow group size is getting big. From trips I have done in the past it is best if we stay in groups of 5 and run different trails. I don't think anyone will mind if there is allot of Rovers we will just have to break off into groups so the trails don't turn into parking lots. The reason we like doing these trips is so we get too meet each other and have fun Wheeling. If 100 Rovers showed up and we only had one trail it could be a disaster, but I don't think that will happen.

Yeah, it'd be great to get folks together. We can certainly split up by experience level and truck capabilities when we get there so everyone has fun and isn't spending too much time standing around. Oh, and I hear that the rabid badger population is pretty low in PA, so probably no need to pack heat.

Zach is a good pup. I promise he won't bite, but I would suggest that you keep your roast beef sandwiches held high.

I e-mailed Lynn at Rausch and told her that some, including myself, will arrive Friday afternoon. Steve, John, and Drew from Rovertym may not get there until late. She said to call her when we are about 1/2 an hour away, and she will meet us at the MX park.She just asked that we come back up Saturday AM to register the latecomers.
When are you planning on going?
I wonder how many Nissan X-terror ('scuse me, x-terra) will be there that weekend?
