April 4th. Barely into spring and
coming out of a long drab winter. Buds are just starting to show
up on the trees back home, but not up here in the coal country
mountains. On a weekend where we were very likely to have
hit or miss weather, a small group of friends in Jeeps descended on
Rausch Creek for a day of 4 wheeling fun.
Arriving early in the morning at the staging area, we met on a
blustery day with 25-25 mph winds and overcast. Not ideal weather
to tow 5000 lbs up the interstate. Also not a good day to take the
top down on the Jeep but the temp was on its way up with a few peeks of
sunshine possible. Typical spring weather up in the PA coal
Our group for the day consisted of eight Jeeps, 3 4-Door Jeep JKs, 3
Keep TJs, and a bumble-bee yellow CJ-7. Most of the Jeeps were
unmodified bone-stock with drivers that had never been offroad before.
Our plan for the day was to stick to the easier trails to give the new to
wheeling Jeep pilots just enough to challenge them. The nice thing
about Rausch Creek is that along many of the easy trails were challenging
sections with the easy trail being the bypass around. This gave the
modified Jeeps a chance to have some fun while the stockers could stay on
the mild trail. The modified Jeeps were Mike's Jeep JK Rubicon (www.jeepfan.com)
Jeep CJ-7 "Budget Build".
Thanks to Mike at
Jeepfan.com for the invite and his share of the photos of our day on
the trails at Rausch Creek.

year project building a Jeep CJ-7 piece by piece. From
restoration of stock parts like the frame, body, engine and
driveline components to upgraded aftermarket improvements
over stock to custom fabrication and design ideas.
