I'm not sure if anybody in the group would be all that interested, but I thought I would throw it out there anyway. I think the season is about over this year, but it would be fun to go sometime next year. I think the season opens back up in April. If you don't know anything about it, it's an offroad park in PA about 5 hours away, give or take. I've got some work to do with the truck before I can wheel it much. This place shows to have everything from easier woods trails to serious rock crawling stuff. They have competitions there as well. Anyway, let me know what you guys think. You have to become a member of the park to go, but I think it was something like $15 for the year. The kicker is that it's $30something per driver to go, and you have to have a group of at least 2. Here's the website:
I'm interested as long as I can get a decent set of tires onto my truck between now and when we all went. Warmer months would be preferred. Much more pleasant to try to get a truck out of the mud when it's not so cold out.
I'm sure it's easier to get unstuck from frozen mud but still... cold sucks.
Petersens 4 wheel and off road went to Rausch Creek as part of their 2010 ultimate adventure. They did the ultimate adventure in the North East this year starting in New Hampshire and ending up in Virginia. You might check out a couple of off road parks in NY they went to that are only 3 hours away. Either way this would be a great time. But I doubt my truck will be ready unless I get a huge dose of cash and time.
Yeah guys, that mud will just slide right off your waxed trucks right? HAHA! I was planning on waiting til late next spring sometime. I don't think we will have to be digging out of too much mud. I will continue to do some snooping around. They have a forum on the site, so I will see if I can come up with some pictures of what the trails look like. I'm sure you could find some youtube videos from there.
Hey Dano, how do you like those hankooks? I love my coopers, but wouldn't mind having a more "road friendly" tire to switch to for winter driving. I have heard good things, but I have also always liked coopers winter tire.
2010 FFH...slowly accepting, MPG helps
Gone but not forgotten: 86 F150 4x4 I6(offy DP, Holley 465cfm, EFI exhuast manifolds, walker y-pipe, ARP head studs, D.U.I. HEI distributor) C6-NP208F, 2 1/2" rough country lift, 32x11.5x15 Cooper Discoverer STT
I don't think we will have to be digging out of too much mud.
I don't know, Josiah... If I go (which I'd very much like to) my goal will be to come out without a square inch of paint showing through the mud. I've yet to get the truck stuck and it'll get a new set of tires before it goes anywhere like that. I spin these ones by accident on dry pavement. I want to find out what it really takes to get this thing stuck.
