Looking ahead to August and sticking to weekends, I have the 21st and 22nd open.
I'm available these dates.
Probably not for the Sugar Hill on a weekday. But can try. I live close by but didn't know how much driving you can accomplish there?
Also received my 1st Purple Lizard map...Cool!

Greetings. I'm in CNY near Syracuse. OB used to be more active in this area, but it has been quiet for a long time. I've been watching the forums here to see if any thing was moving. Just found this post. I've "followed" several of the posters in this thread so that if you try to create a plan, I'll have a better chance of seeing it. I'm game for visiting state forests, driving to meet-greets, and have some access to natural event space (20-40 rigs, and kayak access). I enjoy camping more than off-roading, and I don't really go out of my way to look for off-roading in NY state. When I joined OB years ago I was in an XJ, but these days I roll in a GX470 (pinkies up!). I'm game to come out, and I prioritize getting out whenever I can, Hope to see some of you soon.

Is anyone interested in joining me for a weekday scouting trip to Sugar Hill State Forest (Just west of Watkins Glen). The goal would be to pick a possible route for the July or August meetup.
Anyone who knows the area that can suggest roads to try? or who wants to lead?

I have a couple of tentative GaiaGPS routes
Hi John, I'm game. Could probably head west from my place and join you before going south. Bit a of a trek for a day trip, but scouting that area has been on my list for a while now. I have scouted a lot of places in this region, but I have not been to Sugar Hill yet. So unfortunately, I can't offer a lot of inside knowledge.

@OVRLNDER is your closest Member Representative but we are always looking to expand the Member Representatives in your area. Just to keep members updated with local info, and pass along local info to the Regional Director.

If anyone is interested contact the East Regional Director @Nomadik Nova or me @Kent R.

We are camping in the area tomorrow through Tuesday. We may do some scouting then. You would be welcome to join us!

I’m in Naples! Never been to Sugar Hill! I’m on-call for AC service this weekend, but I might be willing to shoot that way for a couple/few hours!

I’ll check in here a bit later today!

Udy and I had a blast running trails on Saturday! We managed to get good and muddy, without getting stuck or breaking anything. The Sugar Hill State Forest is a wonderful place to explore.

I'll try and put another of these trips together before snow flies. Any location suggestions?!

Also planning on a Rigs & Coffee for August 29th. Does that work for folks?

August 29 is good for Tony and Terry. Same place or are we looking for a different location?

Yes…an absolute blast!

John really put the effort in! Hours of good wheeling! I wish I coulda spent more time! I’d be up for more of the same! After hours at camp is also something I look forward to!

Btw, I got the valence off today! And a new inner fender is on the way! The tire burned most of it away on the way home!

Thanks for the awesome day out!

(Still need to wash the truck, AND vacuum the dust out of the interior!)
