Plans to go to Big Dogs fell through so I decided to organize a trip to GWNF
for a Fall Foliage Run. The weather was expected to be good and the Fall colors expected to be Excellent. My plans included packing for a campout somewhere on Flagpole Knob.

I saw several Jeeps on I81, Several of them stopped at the Sheetz as well
I arrived at Sheetz in Harrisonburg to find Randy Wood already there waiting in his Cherokee.
Yuriy Ostapchuk arrived in his lifted XTerra.
A short time later the last member of our group Mike Zeman arrived in his Cherokee.
We headed out and saw that NOVA was still at their meeting point in Harrisonburg so Mike signaled us to go there. We joined group 2 of 3 that NOVA Jeepers had there for the weekend (about 45 vehicles total) and headed west.

2014 Fall Rausch Creek Run Trip Report PDF Print E-mail
Written by Morgan Franklin   
Sunday, 19 October 2014 00:00

A little late but here is the trip report from the fall run to Rausch Creek. Last Friday a friend of mine, Angel, who had no wheeling experience aside from driving Tahoes in the military but is itching to get a truck and hopefully join the club headed out around 7:30. We finally reached Rausch Creek around 11:30 and it was packed just about every spot was taken in camp A we could see the parking lot lined with Jeeps, Truggies, comp buggies just about every kind of vehicle you could imagine and plenty of race car trailers and RV's to accompany them. We circled the parking lot just to see if we could see any OCC Magnets. We quickly decided we would just poke our noses over to a group of guys having a lively conversation around a campfire to the left side of Camp A and asked if they had seen anyone or if they would mind if we camped next to them they SAID No problem (after I told them I drive a YJ). We quickly set up our tents and took shelter just in time before the rain started. The rain fell nonstop all night. Angel and I got up around 8:00 to the sound of engines starting and fortunately no rain just very wet humid conditions

2014 Fall Colossal "no '91's group" trip report PDF Print E-mail
Written by Chip Woods   
Wednesday, 26 November 2014 09:52

So after being allowed to sleep in a bit we started gathering around to split into groups around 9:45. The '91's headed one way while the rest of us:
Me, Chip Woods, TJ on 33's
Rich Martinez, JK on 35's
Davis Adam, JK on 35's
Roscoe Primrose, the little TJ that could
Ed Salas, TJ on 35's
headed first to the office to check if DK Stewart may have arrived a little late. Cell phone reception is a bit spotty at camp 2 and I hadn't seen a message that he may be running late and didn't want to leave without him. We got to the office a little after 10:00 with no word from DK so we hit the trails.
We headed first to run up U-Turn Easy with a detour on the way up to go around the more difficult loop that leads towards ET. I started in, paused about halfway to find the trail (fallen leaves and stuff) and continued on. I'd always wanted to run that little portion of trail so this was my first trip through. I accepted a little spotting from Rich for the last 100 feet or so, where we got what I thought was our first funny of the day. I do pretty well on smaller stuff, but am really not geared right for bigger stuff. So while pointing hither and yon getting me through some of it Rich hollers "can't you go any slower!!!!" and my negative response just resulted in an eye roll and a head shake. Well...I thought it was funny... Anyway, I got through and was followed by David, Roscoe, and Ed. From there Rich took the lead for the rest of U-Turn up to upper road.
