Offroad in the heart of the
Anthracite Coal Region
Shamokin, Pennsylvania

As we rolled through the back country of Bear valley we found one fun area after another, spending a little time at each place before moving on.  If it wasn't more mud, it was hills to launch off of or washed out trails to crawl though.

This was a popular spot.   This long fairly smooth incline leveled out to an open area.  One truck after another took turns getting a little air at the top.  Even more exciting was the small hump that followed about 50 to 75 feet beyond this point where not very much momentum was required to become a pilot.  That's Jack (Crazy Cooter) taking flight to the left and upper left. I'd bet one of his favorite shows growing up was The Dukes of Hazzard.
