No not really haha.

Below is the trail maps for East West and South properties of Rausch Creek. The yellow dotted line is the trails we will be taking. Most of them are green, but the wanted to try a couple blue as well. One trail is blue and it takes us by yellow jacket ridge.

Supposed to be delivered Thursday.
630 might be a bit early for me... I'm going to PM you my number for the weekend in case I'm meeting up with you later Friday evening. I may come straight from work.


So, gates open at 830PM Friday night??

Yellow Jacket Ridge is super awesome, I've done it many times in my old LJ. 33's, lockers, and some skids definitely help.

We really should try the other property. Less people, lots of wash outs for off camber driving and a big deep pond. Costs$10 extra, but I like it better

The Comfort Inn nearby has a good deal with special rates if your room Rausch. I've stayed there a few times and it was fine. There is also a Hampton Inn there as well, but they are usually much more expensive.

ALCON,
I have some Marriott points I need to use, so we are going to stay at:

SpringHill Suites Harrisburg Hershey
15 Capital Drive at I-81 Progress Avenue Exit 69 · Harrisburg, PA 17110-9446 USA

Its a little ways from the park but it is free! We will meet everyone at the park. Lets use Channel 33 on the CB to be able to find everyone once we get to the park.

Channel 33 works, but I think we are gonna meet up somewhere for breakfast. Even if we dont meet up for breakfast, I will be parked somewhere around the front. Very few burnt orange jeeps around!

You can mount it on the roll bar in the back if you have the 48". If bigger I think you can mount it from one rollbar to the other. Also there is a hood mount.

Got my hi lift today, thought I could just strap it down in the back. Scratches the heck out of everything. Hood mount would be a banged up hood with my skills. Tail mount I don't like, but will use when I get a new rear bumper. Rollbar mount has problems with softtops. Ugh!!! guess it stays home this weekend.

I need a new rear bumper for my hi lift jack?
