EC-XK Rausch Creek Trip March 27-29, 2009

Since I am still in hibernation I didn't want to propose anything too near in the future. I also want to give a chance to others to be able to come out and join us for some fun. So......I am thinking that sometime in March we can try to get a group up to RC again. Open to any suggestions for a date but it will most likely be a weekend (Friday night, Sat, Sun). There is camping on site with some port-a-potty access. There are some hotels around if that is your thing. I would like to get as many people as possible to join in so I will leave the date open but you can vote on the weekend(s) that you can be available on the poll. If you have any questions about RC or what to expect you can check out the RC website http://www.rauschcreekoffroadpark.org/. You can also search the forum for our previous trip. The park is large and at our last meet there the park was crowded by their standard but you could not even notice once you were out of the parking lot. There is plenty of entertainment off the trails as well with rock crawling to watch or take part and even some racing. Looking forward to the trip and seeing a lot of forum members there.

This sounds awesome. One question, however - I have a Trail Rated Commander Sport with Quadra Track II, but no off road equipment (tow hooks, skid plates, etc.); do they have trails that are easy enough for my current Commander configuration?

Thanks,

Thanks,
The park is mostly covered with Green (easy) trails. Most of the time it is very light off-roading there are more challenging parts but there are alternate trails and go around paths that you can take to avoid issue. If you check the RC maps you can see the number of green trails through the park. Take note of the area marked as "South Property" and "West Property" because that will likely be the area we will be in. Our first trip we did not get to do much wheeling in this area so we will this time. There will be plenty of time to cover the other half of the park as well.
