I can't remotely even daydream about running all the BoH trails, which is why I've narrowed it down to Bear Wallow and Rausch Creek. If I do get a Badge of Honor, it will probably be at one of those parks.

I'm probably too antisocial and curmudgeonly to ever go to either destination though. They sound crowded. If I liked crowds, I would just go to the mall.
You're a curmudgeon, but you're our curmudgeon. ;)

I live within easy driving distance of Rausch Creek, am usually in the area at least once per week, and have observed the incoming and outgoing traffic there (and talked with a few guys that have done a trail or 3.) It can indeed be a busy place, sometimes, but it's also very well-regarded in terms of trail networks and such.

If you need a trail buddy, PM me. I might be able to accommodate you. I have a pair of FRS radios and it's a two-vehicle minimum per trail outing, anyway.

That sounds like a winning plan, actually. I've been meaning to get back up to PA for years, and see if you guys ever finished any of the road construction :CWL::CWL::CWL:.

It's early days yet for making plans that far ahead. At some point early next year, we'll pick vacations. I can probably swing a trip to Rausch Creek, and maybe check out some other stuff while I'm in the general area. I always wanted to explore more of PA.

Am I running a 3 or a 7 every weekend? Would you have fun on my trail, or find it a boring waste of your road trip? It's an interesting question.
I am on the verge of cashing in on alllll my spending limits to buy a computer capable of doing a more presentable job of rendering 4k video. In the meantime, this crap is a good representation of my local trail:


It doesn't seem that hard to me. Maybe a 1 out of 10. Then again, the last time I wheeled it, I took a bad line through one of the ruts, and freaked myself out that I had just ripped a hole in my gas tank.

Edited to remove the drunk pity party. My ex left me, whine whine whine. Okay, I have some dignity back in place. Move along. Nothing to see here.

I did get drunk enough to order that video editing computer. It seems insane to invest that much in stupid drone videos, but I basically got a $4,000 computer for $3,000. It should be a gigantic step up from my $500 laptop that takes 12 hours to produce a short video. Faster iteration should result in better editing, and better videos. I feel like the bones are there to make some really awesome content, complete with original backing tracks.

It wouldn't be the first time I gambled on myself and lost, however. That's why I have a $10,000 drum kit and 12 subscribers on Youtube. :CWL:

Oh well. 😎
