"No Roads" Necessary - Wildlife for Everyone 2011
Hey Ya'll -
You might want to consider getting together for our event this late fall 2011. We are hosting an off-road Jeep event here in our park ( It will be the weekend of:
11/4-6/2011. We have donated the use of our 35 miles of private mountain off-road trails for this event. Also,, part of the registration fee's will be going to the foundation ... a great cause = "wildlife & the environment" ... treading lightly ,, of course :thumb:
We are currently in the process of assembling an event team. Registration will open sometime in August for this event.

Fyi -
This is a beginner to advanced off-road track / trails course that was put in and used by Hummer dealers back in 2003-08 time frame. The course has not been used since 2008. We are in the process of bringing it back to life ... updating & adding new trails , too ~~~ :punk:

Your links aren't working.

Tom - when the window opens up for each of those sites,, hit the refresh button on that window. After the window refreshes - click on the link that states:

>> Click Here To Proceed To Link Destination <<
They should work this way. Thank-you for the "heads up" !!!

Sincerely -

cougar2 07-22-2011 02:43 PM

Also, Tom - I cut & pasted my first post on this forum from another post I put up on a seperate PA forum. They seem to be working now when I actually type them into the post:

Tom - the event team is trying to put together a really cool event that we hope we can build upon each year. There will be travel trailer & RV camping allowed. Pop up travel trailers are allowed. Tents that are in the bed of a pickup are allowed - as well as the outfitter tents that unfold onto the top of ones vehicle are good to go, too.
Unfortunately,, no "on the ground" tents & open camp fires will be permitted.

I'll post a tentative schedule next week so everyone can see what all will be going on during that weekend ~~~
Thanks again -

"Wheelin for Wildlife"
FYI - No matter where you might live in the mid-atlantic region,, the event staff is on a mission to make this an event well worth your long drive & attendance. :thumb:
After this past Saturday's all day planning session here at the park,, the "event mantra" has become: "Wheelin' for Wildlife" in support of the foundation :action-smiley:

Here's something that came out of past weekend's session:
- for the mudders ... there already is a mud pit fording basin out on one of the trails. However,, a 2nd tourist spectator mud pit & rock crawl area was approved for construction within walking distance of the main Penn's Cave Visitors Center. Even if you do not own a Jeep, however, you still think that they are cool - come on out,, hang out,, walk about,, park yourself & watch the mudders show off to compete. :popcorn:
Before it's all over ... you'll be thinkin' about ... how soon you can buy your first Jeep :)

All the event registration info. should be up by this coming weekend. I'll post a note to confirm once it is all up, etc. -
Thanks ,, Y'all ~~~

bluesmokey 08-10-2011 11:14 PM

How far is this from philadelphia... Most likely past kop? Lol

cougar2 08-10-2011 11:55 PM

Wheelin' for Wildlife ~~~
+/- 195 miles from Center City -

We are located 18 miles east of Penn State's main campus (State College).
If you are not into camping this time of year ... new Best Western opened 12 miles from the Park. Penn Stae football is off this weekend (no game) ,, so there will be plenty of other hotels to pick from as well . All of this info. will be listed in the online registration files, too .

ps. Get your popcorn ready :popcorn:... there is going to be one heck of a mud pit competion on the last day of the event. If you do not like mud,, this part of the weekend will be just cool to hang out & watch :punk:

cougar2 08-11-2011 12:12 AM

Also ,, everybody - the Eagle Valley Off-Roaders are an awesome group of folks !!! They hope to make this their annual flag-ship Jeep event. Please consider joining the club, however, you do not have to be a member in order to register for this event. Remember the mantra for this event is: "Wheelin' for Wildlife" in support of wildlife & the environment. After all ... that's what the foundation is all about :appl::Thanx:

cougar2 08-17-2011 03:12 PM

Wheelin' for Wildlife ~~~
FYI ,, everybody - Registration is now open for this event.
Go to the homepage. Click
on the "No Roads Necessary 2011" link. All registration documents
can be viewed & downloaded from this location.

Bring it :punk: ... in November !!! :thumb:


chevellian 08-29-2011 03:19 PM

sounds like a really cool event.
I am planning on attending, so you will have a rookie to deal with.

cougar2 09-01-2011 08:35 PM

Wheelin' for Wildlife ~~~
No worries ... you'll be good to go - there will be lot's of experienced off-road vet's at the event. :thumb:

Be careful, however, some of the old time vet's make the new rookies take their nice clean rig through the mud-pit right from the get go at the pre-run ~~~ :rofl: :hide:

cougar2 09-01-2011 09:23 PM

Wheelin' for Wildlife ~~~
ps. And of course ,, I'm kidding you, Rook - no one is forced to try any of the optional obstacles unless they choose to do so :punk:

On a side note ... do not wait too long to send your registration paperwork in. We have already started receiving registration packets
from participants. There are only 100 Jeep positions open for the mountains trails on the Saturday of the event weekend (first to register = first on the mountain trail list) :dance:

NOTE: The remainder of the registered participants will still be able to run their Jeeps over obstacles on the infield show ground obstacle area that will be set up, too ~~~
If you have never been here before ,, here is what our show grounds (located beside the main Penn's Cave Visitors Center) look like during the fall Nittany Antique Machinery Show (NAMA) held here at Penn's Cave & Wildlife Park each year - click on NAMA's website to see some of their show photo's, etc. :


cougar2 09-01-2011 09:42 PM

Note that => the NAMA show is next weekend (weekend after labor day). If you live fairly close to Penn's Cave, PA ... please try to make it in next weekend, too, for the show !!! It really is worth the drive ... an OUTSTANDING family event to learn & experience a part of the past from our American rural farmin' roots :appl::Thanx:

DM6156 11-04-2011 11:46 AM

Will this be an annual event? Post a lot of pictures!

I can't make it this year, but very interested if it goes on next year.

Any word on whether this event is going to be annual? Had I (or my club) known about it we could have brought possibly a good sized group of Jeeps. Do you regularly offer trails for wheeling or do you only open up for events such as this? Any way to get informed of possible future trail rides?

Constant harrasment from the greenies? Goverment Shutdown? Budget? Or Weather related?
