There is a cabin for sale on E. Trails Road. Would be a good place to have weekend hangouts.
Check the York, PA or Baltimore, MD Craigslist and search under Housing For Sale for "Seasonal Cabin/Bungalow"

Hit me up

Rob
Looks like I'll be up there Saturday to test out my (new to me) 96 XJ that I just got, long as I get the front hooks installed tonight. 96 XJ, 3" lift, black with a very faded hood. I'll be with a group of non-Jeepers, but they're pretty ok people besides that

I'm going to have to find the west entrance... I've only been in through the east side. Do you go in on Hillview, then a right on Deep Dale?

You enter at the power lines but I do not suggest you go. Some of the land owners are taking photos of plates and reporting. The road is private land access for land owners. I've given up my fight with the 2 people trying to keep people out. It's not worth it.

It's just not worth it guys. These people own the property, the spend their hard earned money to have their cabin, house, or camp site there. It's not our right to be there. Some land owners understand that most of us go up and help as well as are respectful. The others just don't care and they don't want any of us there. They have every right to say keep out. As much as I don't like what they say I have no right in any argument against their opinion or for mine.

ok... it's such a bummer.. It's so close and a nice little ride down there. Thats the way it always works, a couple knuckleheads F it up for everyone else.

Rausch is so far to go, and to be honest, with the trails so full of rocks, it's just not fun in the 'ol LJ. There are some nice "play areas" that are a blast, but spending the day bouncing around on the rocks isn't. I notice when I go wit the guys in JK's they sure seem to move over the rocks much better. We get slammed around in the cabin cuz, it's just so rough. And if I go slower, the others behind me get frustrated. I'm thinking maybe the Bilstein 5100's on it are too stiff... just don't know... anyway.. Mike, thanks for the heads up... and really appreciate your attempt to liaison with the land owners!

Maybe you're running the wrong trails. Your TJ-L isn't as rough as a ride as my YJ. Maybe you should join my group next month.

Brien, I've been on a ride before where the group leader's grueling pace sucked all the fun out of the day. Mike, on the other hand, led a group at Topless for Tatas at Rausch and the pace was perfect, even for my YJ that rides slightly better than a covered wagon going down the Oregon Trail. I don't recall anyone having any problems, including at least 1 LJ on 33s, similar to yours. Your profile says you have a Rubicon so your 4:1 transfer case is going to slow you down by design. Some people like to play wannabe King of the Hammers and if they get frustrated with you for crawling while rock crawling, that's their problem. Tell them to get a dictionary if they don't know what crawling means.

Thanks Tom!

Gentlemen.. appreciate the replys!

Greg - Yes. But just did that for the 1st time on this last trip to Rausch and it did make a difference. I went to 16lbs... and I think I could go down a couple more... not sure where the limit is before I run the risk on popping the bead? I also have disconnects for the front. I have considered disconnecting the rear, but the more I read about that, doesnt seem like a good plan. I think I have many more options before I do that.

Tom - These last two rides were exactly that... grueling... perfect word for it. And yea, that 4:1 has it's pros and cons. After the previous Rausch trip, I put in a hand throttle. That really helped over the rocks as well. Really helped keep a nice steady roll, but still the leader was flying through the trails, and the JK behind me was about 3' behind me all day.. and clearly frustrated. I recommended many times for him to move ahead of me, but he didn't...

Mike - I'd like to join up with one of your trips. I live 5min from Adams... right down 22. I'll swing by.

Go down to 12 area. It will make a big difference. Shouldn't be a problem holding the bead there.

yea 12-14 psi for MTs and disconnect the front sway. Makes a world of difference.
