What a great thread! You are (almost) making me excited to return to PA next year. I'm honestly not looking forward to the (crowded) east coast when there is so much open rec area out here (WA).
We'll be based in Orwigsburg but don't mind traveling far and wide for adventure.
Area of interest: dispersed camping as much as possible, anything off road
Type of involvement: meet ups (oh wait thats below too)
Type of vehicle: 02 F250 & 96 Bronco both extremely off road capable
Your ability to get out: very available (husband is retiring) for day trips, overnights, last minute, and well planned adventure
Any areas of interest: no idea. all the places?
Areas of outdoor interest: hiking, hunting, waterfalls, lakes, anywhere thats dog friendly and scenic
Interest in meetups or group rides: yes!
I should be researching a Death Valley trip coming up in March but I wanted to say HI and bookmark this thread for future use.
Recently settled back in the SE PA region, after some extensive travel throughout the country. I am so ready to get back out on another adventure. I am hopeful to get some time in this spring and summer in a number of the forest regions you all have mentioned.
I have been hoping to meet up with some like minded adventurers for a meet and greet. Perhaps a rigs and coffee style event.
Calling all of those in the Southeast PA Region! I just recently settled back into the SE PA region and have been wanting to meetup with like minded adventurers and gauge interest in a regularly scheduled local meetup. Would any of you have interest in getting together for a monthly gathering...
The Pennsylvania Department of Conservation and Natural Resources reports more disabled and abandoned vehicles on snow- and ice-covered state forest roads than in any previous winter in the past 20 years.
It is pretty ugly out there. And this weekend is going to get warm. If you do go out...be sure to get out to a manageable road before sunset. The melting snow will be ice and unless you are prepared...you will be stuck.
Good luck and safe travels to anyone venturing out.
