WF/AMJ ride at Rausch Creek 3! East Coast Meetup!
 
3 Attachment(s)
With the great success we had the last 2 years, with somewhere around 20 folks showing up for the first year and 30+ rigs and even more people last year, and the great expressed interest of all those involved, I think it is time to start planning for our third trip out. Same rules etc apply. I will be throwing some updates up on the American Jeepers Facebook group, and if you don't get an answer out of me, Kenny, or Wes in a day or two, feel free to post up there.

August 1-3 is the tentative date.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
This will be the official thread for the Third Annual WF ride at Rausch Creek in Tremont, PA. Rausch Creek Off Road Park We will probably be running green and blues, the easier trails, with some blue blacks/blacks and of course harder trails if your rigs can handle it. Should be a good weekend of fun. If anyone has any questions contact me, Bear94 or InvertChaos for details. The date is currently open for discussion. Anyone is welcome to join us :thumb: If you know what trails you plan on running etc let us know. I will add everything to an "official list" I make so we can organize into wheeling groups out there.

You NEED:
At least one tow point front and rear
Working 4 wheel drive with low range (unless otherwise equip)
Spare tire (doesn't have to be a full size, its your spider gears that will want it though)

You SHOULD HAVE:
An offroad or more aggressive tire tread. If you are stock and bringing stock (road only) tires, I would look into picking up a used set.
Water, sunscreen, bug spray, your own money, etc.

Attendee list: + several Non-WF members (not on list) ( I left people from last year who have told me they want to try to come already on the list.

1. Ryan, Goldensahara00 + at least 2 rigs, up to 6ish
2. Kenny, Bear94 + pete/will
3. Wes, InvertChaos
4. Jared, JDeBlois
5. Bill, blueskiesbill + friend
6. Ryan - MAYDAY
7. RemoJK
8. Steveo33186

Dude, make it happen. I would be ecstatic! It's seriously the best weekend of the year.

tabber02 02-12-2014 08:33 PM

i can only imagine... i really want to, we'll have to make it happen.

RemoJK 02-13-2014 08:33 AM

Talked to the wife yesterday to make sure we had no plans that weekend but she said it's to far away to remember, so I am a go for this.
Might have some buddies coming along with me too. We've been trying to get out to rausch for the past 2 years

RemoJK 02-14-2014 08:16 AM

Nobody wants to come?? :(

Medixtj01 02-15-2014 01:54 PM

I'll probably be there since I have no plans and will have my license by then.

Thanks can't wait I hope I can go to one of their 101 courses first since I won't have my license April

InvertChaos 02-22-2014 09:56 PM

Bump to the top! Hopefully I'll actually have something new to show this year :nonono:

GoldenSahara00 02-23-2014 01:34 AM

After all that computer gear you bought... Better get some jeep parts too or she will feel neglected. I should have lots of toys this year! But depends. May not come together til next year.

reddoak 02-23-2014 08:37 AM

I'd like to go! I've heard excellent things about that place.

Better consider me a real green newb with a stock 2dr JK... I'll need to look into tires before then.

GoldenSahara00 02-23-2014 09:17 AM

Grab some tires for sure, and you'll be able to enjoy some blue trails I think once you get comfortable. You're spot on about the tires though. JK tires usually pull good money used so you won't really be out much. Glad to have you a long b

The past 2 years i've gone with my stock YJ on 31" AT3s and did almost everything. You will do most blues no problem but invest in Disconnects.

FenderGrime 02-24-2014 11:05 AM

This sounds awesome! I'll have to see what the summer training schedule has in store for me, but if I have white space this is where I'll be!

Any idea what the campsites look like? I have a 12'x15' wall tent I can bring if some people need sleeping arrangement assistance.

Bear94 02-24-2014 11:22 AM

Whats up Fender, I live right down in Monroe so you can join in with my group of people on the way down.

Now there is plenty of room for a tent like that. We usually try and grab the entire corner where the picture says "Camping area". I try to get there as early as possible on Friday to claim our spot.

Couldn't I just disco the seat bar by removing the bolt in the bottom part of the link? Maybe I'll just make a set of discos.

steve_plunkett 02-24-2014 01:19 PM

Don't set up shop near the camp fire if you want to not be dead from lack of sleep in the morning ;) at least people enjoyed the floating tent trick.

Don't know where that is. Probably somewhere to meet hallways?
