ladies and gents...this is seriously all new territory for everyone. This is a run that you don't want to miss if you can help it.
all this choke slamming is getting me pumped...HA!....that being said....for my own good I will not be choke slamming
How hard are the trails going to be

Sent from my Autoguide iPhone app
there will be all levels..from mild to wild. You can do the Green Trails (easy) in a stock Xterra easily. Just be sure to remove OEM step rails and mudflaps...or youll be going home with them in the passenger seat. :drink:
^ do you have the parts yet? if not please let me know when you do. Lord knows you've helped enough of us with our broken stuff/mods. :) Hopefully we'll see you there homeboy. Plenty of time between now and then to get that lift in.
it's coming together! these are some great prizes! Nice job guys!
It's confirmed I'll be there either flying into Chicago and ride out with Ryan or Newark and ride out with Mr. Snookie

hahaha. just let me know what you decide to do. One way or the other the Ninjas will be present at the Ridin Dirty Run! :drink:
there will be no fees to wheel on this trip.
Posted via Mobile Device
That is not actually true. There will be nominal fees to wheel on this trip.
i should clarify it, the park is not charging an entry fee per passenger..but yes there will be nominal fees to cover other costs. thy will be nothing like rc charges tho.

dom i have it under control. thanks for the heads up.
Sorry for the lack of an update for a while. We are having trouble finding campgrounds that are less than 45 min from the wheeling location that are still open at this time of year, can host a raffle/dinner event, and can accomodate our group size. I am still working out logistics but it is very possible that our home base for this trip will be the KOA in pine grove again due to the fact that it is open, nice, has heated cabins, and has a place for the raffle event to take place. This is not the final word. This campground is in Pine Grove and is just under an hour from the wheeling spot. A little far, but it seems like the most feasable option at this point at this time of year. I will most likely be going in on a cabin (with heat) with some other people if we end up staying at the KOA. Stay tuned. Marcin call me sometime today bud. :)

well..there are closer campgrounds with comparable amenities and cabins and all, however, they all close down the weekend before at the end of october. KOA is the only one capable of handling our group and varying lodging requirements that also has off season hours. I don't think everyone is going to want to tent camp in november. I personally have no issue with it...but we need to have options for those to wish to bring families and sig everyone can enjoy this event. For that KOA is our best choice.
Yeah, last November got pretty chilly overnight. I can hang with tents in the cold, the family not so much. So it is KOA fo sho?
sending out a couple more emails and making a few more calls. But we are leaning heavily towards the KOA right probably yes.
As has been mentioned before. We will officially be staying at the Twingrove KOA, in Pine Grove, PA.

A lot of us reserve and share cabins. It would be worth your while to reserve now, because although it is the off season, we will have enough people at this event that the bigger cabins go quickly. You will get offseason pricing which is considerably less than during the camping season, and the cabins have heaters. It doesn't really matter where you end up, we all end up hanging out at the biggest place around a big fire at night anyway. Cheers and I can't wait to see you all at this event!!

GPAX Event Coordinator
the meeting is currently in session. we will have updated prices for this event as well as a signup thread for trail difficulty/trail leading and more general event info at the end of the night.
guys, I know we are all excited about the PRG kit being raffled off, and about this event....but let's please try and keep PRG reviews and customer service related banter in the PRG subforum. Thanks.

GPAX Event Coordinator
If you are planning on coming to this event it is very important that you go over to this thread and officially sign up. This will not only give us a headcount, but will also allow the GPAX officers and our kind hosts to plan the trail groups for wheeling on the 3rd. thanks!
Should be cheaper or around the same price as a day at Rausch for everything (T-shirt, Food sat night, Guides for the Day, ect.) . I am waiting on the food vendor to get an exact price to everything. Sorry about the delay...but if you can afford a day at Rausch...this won't be a problem for you.
What's a day at Rausch cost? I'm still hoping I'll be able to make it out to this.
well, if you are new to Rausch Offroad would be $45-50 because you need to pay the yearly membership fee. If you are already a member, $35. The cost for everything should be around 35 bucks or less for this event. There is no official direct fee to wheel at this park.
There are.

thats incredibly helpful.. thank you for your input.

To answer the question nicely...there are many gas stations on the way. If you are taking rt 80 there is TA truckstop right before your Hit the delware water gap just off 80. There is a micky D's there too so it's a decent place to fuel up and grab something as well. aside from that almost every exit off rt 80 or 87 have a gas station within a few miles. If you go down through Mt Bethel there are at least 3 stations in town there. hit me up if you want to carpool on Friday night.
