    Elk State Forest Pennsylvania

    On to my next adventure area. Got the day use map and am starting to plan a route. Another area not yet covered by the Purple Lizard. So, right off I got a question. Ridge Road campsites. Any one know anything about them. They do not show up in searches or on the interactive camping map I...

    Covering 343 miles, 5 state forests and 4 Purple Lizard maps...mostly dirt

    So I decided to get out to Loyalsock. It is a 2 hour highway drive. But who wants to drive the highway. So, starting in Rothrock going through Bald Eagle up through Pine Creek and then over to Loyalsock and across is about a 14 hour dirt road extravaganza. So that is too much for a day...

    Connecting the forests in Central Pennsylvania

    Just wanted to brainstorm with my plan. I have been scouting out the area making sure I get plenty of time in the forests while I wait for the opportunity to make it a trip. I always hear that Pennsylvania just doesn't offer the experiences the west does. But I noticed a lot of people...

    Ticks, Snakes, Bears

    Thought I would see where a discussion about the nuisances, dangers and beauty of Eastern American wildlife would take us. Ticks. Annoying and pretty much useless. Never saw one (except on a farm dog and deer) until 2006 when I went to Carman school for the railroad in Georgia. First one I ever...

    Gathering information/thoughts/ experiences/unique, must see things for a planned trip around Central Pennsylvania(all of PA and surrounding states)

    I have a few threads already for trip planning. I started with a plan to see one of the most popular in PA (Bald Eagle) which grew to include an adjoining one (Rothrock). After researching Rothrock I realized that I have spent much time in State Forests in PA, but wasn't seeing the Forest for...

    A Tradesman for off pavement travel/dispersed camping.

    I have a few threads for my trip planning, so figure it is time for a place to gather thoughts on the "build". 2015 RAM 2500. It is a Crew Cab with an 8 foot bed, so it definitely qualifies as full figured. Power comes to it from a 392 cubic inch HEMI. Of course they did away with the manual...

    Rothrock to Bald Eagle connection

    This will be the trip planning for a extended trip with overnight stays and daily exploring that will be an attempt to off pavement travel from the begining of one to the end of the other.
