JEEPForum Rausch Creek run anyone?

So the MD'ers and PA'ers need to have a trail ride/meet and greet. Of course Rausch Creek is the obvious choice for wheeling in our area. I was thinking sometime in late May.

Any interest in this? I figured I would put this up early so we can get some people interested and some dates floating around. If we get enough people together we can make an event out of it.

Lets get some ideas floating around

Most Saturday's usually work for me. May seems pretty open for me.

We have a small (5 or so) group running up to Rausch tomorrow (3/28), hitting black trails. Shoot me an e-mail at Blacksahara1@yahoo.com if ya wanna come along. We'll probably get to the staging area around 8:30-8:45 and hit the trails by 9.

You guys missed out. We had a group up there Mar 21-22 and had a blast. Great weather for both days of wheeling. Everyone kept breaking though, I was one of two in our group that didn't. Two u-joints, an LCA bracket, and a crossmember.

We went all over the place. I don't know all the trails that well though, only been there twice. Did a lot of the blues down by Rock Creek on the first day, with a few blacks thrown in. I do know we went through trail 4 and yellow jacket, as well as the Quarry, snakebite, camelback, pizza rock, 1C in both directions, and we played around the hills near Lake Christie and drove through it as well. Me and the guy I was wheeling with both got stuck in 'black hole' and had to pull each other out.

I will say that if you want a challenge, camelback and trail 1C (run it both directions) were pretty damn difficult. They both consist of a line of humps back to back, so you are just going up and down about 5 times on each trail. I had some trouble on both, but made it through without a winch or help. I did have to get pulled off a rock at one point on camelback, and the other guy in his full size bronco needed to use his winch multiple times, even with dual lockers and 35's.

We also played around the comp course a bit at the end of the day. I decided to pick a line on one obstacle that I didn't even think I could do. It was a really steep concrete hill. First time I went up too slow and got all 4 wheels spinning. Tried it again a bit faster and drove straight up without a problem. Going down the other side was a different story. It was almost as steep, but way off camber. I truly thought I was gonna roll it. I think the guys watching me did too. Bad part was I was about 15 feet off the actual ground, so a 'flop' would have resulted in about 4-5 rolls down a bunch of huge rocks... It had to be the most scared I've ever been in the Jeep.

And because I'm a pic whore...

RTI ramp, not bad for short arms and no drop brackets. Shocks are limiting the droop.



Camelback I think



Bronco lost two u-joint caps at the very bottom of the quarry. Luckily he had a spare full shaft


Black hole. Check it out in the 2nd pic, it just looks like a small mud puddle until you drive in and sink lol. Would have made it through, but we both got hung up on a rock or stump right in the middle of the hole. The bronco pulled me out backwards and I drove around. I pulled him out forwards through it.



He let his wife drive over this big rock pile. She made it all the way across, then dropped the bronco right on the front diff on the last rock lol. They had to stack a few rocks and she just gunned it right over, dragging both pumpkins, but making it off. I let my girl drive around the comp course and the quarry a bit too, she did well.

Looks like a lot of fun, nice jeep. Yellow Jacket Ridge and the blues and blacks around rock creek are some of my favorite trails.
