Hi, My name is Derek and I am 26 years old. I have been married for 2 years. I am originally from Northern Colorado but have been living in Norfolk VA for 2 years. However, I am more then anxious to move back out west!

I currently own a 2005 LJ with Chromoly Dana 44 axles front and rear w/Yukon Zip locker out back, 4.56 gears, 37 inch Pro Comp Xtreme All Terrains(in town). I run 37 inch Pit Bull Rockers in the dirt. 5.75″ suspension lift in front and 5″ lift in rear w/ Fox racing shox, 1″ body lift.

The best modifications to date would have to be my Poison Spyder tube fenders and Savvy Offorad Aluminum gas tank skid and Skid Row Offroad oil pan skid plate as well as my bestop trektop. I love them all! I am very excited about my RockKrawler X factor steering system that I’m installing next week! Still on my Jeep wish list are Gen Right’s 3 link front suspension and 4 link rear w/ Fox coilovers and a full welded rollcage and a Vortec supercharger would be nice!

I started wheelin at a young age of 12 riding around the Colorado and Wyoming mountains in my dad’s and my uncle’s Toyota pickups. I got my first 4×4 at age 18 – a Chevy s10.

Craziest wheelin incident: Breaking a front axle on my old truck and having to leave it above 10,000 ft for 2 weeks in January in the Colorado mountains and coming close to not recovering it until summer.

I always knew I’d buy a Jeep someday. I’ve always loved them so in the spring of 09 I bought my 05 LJ bone stock with 5,000 miles on it and haven’t looked back since. I’ll probably always own one. They are so fun to wheel and they look awesome when you build them right.

My favorite wheelin spot is Rausch Creek, PA. and Wheelin Crew is IFOJ (Independent Friends of Joe).

Let me close with my favorite Wheelin Quote: “Long hauls and close calls”

In keeping with trying to bring to the forefront all of the available off roading locations around the state, I bring to you today Rausch Creek Off Road Park located in Pennsylvania. If you know of a spot that we haven’t featured yet, please let us know and we will ad it to our list. Please provide the URL with your suggestion. If the site does not have a current website, give us some background information on it and address and we will get it posted.

Here is some information about Rausch Creek Off Road Park from the Rausch Creek Off Road Park official website:

Rausch Creek Off Road Park
Rausch Creek Off Road Park is devoted to providing a fun legal place for 4×4 off road clubs and organizations to go “wheeling.” The park consists of 1,700 acres of easy, intermediate, and hard trails. Rocks, bowls, hills, the glacial “Rock Creek”, club friendly trails, and free on site camping combine to make Rausch Creek a unique 4×4 destination.

We are located at:
453 Molleystown Rd Tremont PA 17981
Open Year Round:
April – November, open Fridays, Saturdays, Sundays without the need to make a reservation. Monday – Thursday open by reservation. All camping is by reservation.
OFFICE HOURS:
Fri-Sat, 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. (*wheel til dusk)
Sunday 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. (*park closes at 5 p.m.)
WINTER: Dec-March open Sat-Sun 8 to 5

Rausch Creek Off-Road Park opened in the spring of 2003. Located within minutes of Interstate 81 at the Tower City/Tremont exit (#107), Rausch Creek Off Road Park has over 1,700 acres at its disposal for the off-road enthusiast. The coal companies that established most of the infrastructure in Schuylkill County, PA used the land previously. The Central Pennsylvania region is the heart of the state’s coal region and is rich with history.

The landscape of the park’s acreage varies greatly. The majority of the area is lined with trees, providing substantial shade during the hot summer months and adding driving challenges year round as the trails wind though the forest. The park is divided into three parts, based on the topography of the area. A key feature of the west property is a large glacial deposit, called the “Rock Creek”. The deposit begins within a few feet of a main access road and extends over 1800 feet. At its widest point, the deposit is over 150 feet wide. The boulders that litter the area are large, and packed close enough together that only a handful of trees have proven sturdy enough to survive in the area. The deposit has been providing entertainment for the larger vehicles that venture into the park and has proven to be a challenge to the best drivers and spotters.

A lot of planning has gone into, and continues to go into, the development of the trails in the Off Road Park. Trails are being built with the Off Road Club in mind. Many of the “club” trails have a lower rating, but have multiple “hard” obstacles as a challenging option. It is not uncommon to see competition rock crawlers on the same trail as a stock vehicle with both drivers attaining the same level of “pucker factor”, without destroying their vehicles completely.

New in 2007, and with more to come in 2008, was the construction of new, larger staging and parking areas. We are proud to be the only East Coast location for a competition area consisting of both natural and man-made spraycrete obstacles. The park is one of the venues for World Extreme Rock Crawling (We-Rock) and our own local series, Rausch Creek Rock Crawl Series (RCrocs). Visit our forum for discussion on these events as well as the website http://www.rcrocs.com

In addition to the club friendly trails, the park has a number of camping sites where groups can plan for longer stays in the park. Camping is primitive and included in the daily admission charges.

A yearly membership fee of $15 is required. This membership fee applies to all drivers and all passengers 16 and up. Once you are a member, the price to wheel at the park is $35 per day, per vehicle, and $7 per day for passengers.

Rausch Creek Off-Road Park is associated with the other motorsport venues of Rausch Creek Racing. Rausch Creek Trail Riders and the Rausch Creek M/X Park are within minutes of the Off-Road Park and provide an area to race or trail ride ATVs and Motorcycles. A paved race course is planned for the area in the near future. The region will soon provide entertainment for every type of motorsport enthusiast. Find out more about the Rausch Creek venues at rauschcreekracing.com.

The park officers are Bruce Shallis and Lynn Ehrenfeld. Bruce has been involved in this sport for over 15 years and has many years experience with Jeep Jamboree and Camp Jeep events and is involved with professional competitive rockcrawling. Lynn has several years experience with 4×4 clubs, trail building, and guiding rides and is the park’s on-site manager. Contact either of them to schedule a visit to the park or to have your questions answered.
