OK Auto’s 4X4 2006 was held at Rausch Creek Off-Road Park in Joliette, PA on April 29th and 30th.  It was a perfect weekend of trail riding.  Clear skies, warm weather, and good company made a weekend one could possibly dream for. Page 7.

Rausch Creek offers 1700 acres of varying off-road trails that can satisfy the simple trail runner, mud lover, and rock lover.  This trail report is assembled like a photo album recounting our experiences from this exciting weekend.

Fun with time and night exposure

I got what I expected…

After a good dinner and some fun we all turned in for the night.  I don’t usually like to camp but I figured it was only one night.  I went into it expecting to not have a good nights sleep and I was right.  The time line of the night is almost comical.

11pm – go to bed.  It’s already 30 degrees out and we are sleeping in a “summertime” tent that has only screens on two sides.  Luckily I had a good sleeping bag, my pillow was like a block of ice so I didn’t move much.

11:30 – 2 am – The feeling of “getting back to nature” is cloaked by the heavy metal music blasting from a neighboring campsite.  Our neighbors were quite a distance away but it was dead quiet except for them.  If you were the people playing the music you owe me 2.5 hours of sleep and turn it down!

3 am – Someone was SCREAMING at their dog for 30 minutes.  I don’t know why?

4 am – 5 am – Something, a bird perhaps, was making a strange squawking/chirping noise that sounded like a car alarm.  This didn’t overly bother me – it is nature ya know.  After an hour or so of this it did become annoying.

6 am – I had enough, get up and eat!
