Once again it's time to start planning for the single biggest event for the mid Atlantic region Explorers. I can't promise a smooth get together this year, but I sincerely hope everyone can be a responsible adult and come out for a day or two to talk shop about our X's, catch up on new jobs, kids and news, and hopefully hit the trails the next day. This will be the 4th annual All Ford Nationals/ Offroading weekend to be held in Carlisle, Pa on June 4th, and Hazleton, Pa on June 5th. I recommend Paragon as the second half of our weekend simply because it was suggested to alternate between Rausch Creek and Paragon every year. Besides, many new members have never been to Paragon, which offers a greater selection of trails than RC (mud and water crossings as opposed to just rocks).

EVERYone is welcome to bring their Fords, however, I ask that you respect Carlisle's and Paragon's rules regarding irresponsible behavior (IE: no donuts on Carlisle's showfield, straying from the trail, etc). In the past we have shared hotel rooms Friday night in Carlisle, shown our trucks saturday day, shared more hotel rooms saturday night and gone wheeling sunday. Last year a lot of people said they'd show up and they didn't- which left me holding the bill for the unused rooms. This year if you need a room, you are responsible for finding other people to split the cost with you by posting here that you need a roomate. IT IS YOUR RESPONSIBILITY TO RESERVE THE ROOM(S)!!! I will come back and edit this with Hotel information as I find it so you'll have the phone numbers at hand. If necessary I'll reserve the rooms again this year, but I'd rather not.

Carlisle All Ford Nationals I suggest you register online once they have the page up, it'll save you some time at the gate. If you don't, you can still register when you get there, no biggie. As always, we register under the club name "Serious Explorations" in honor of this site. It's $45 to register the day of, but sometimes they offer a discount for pre-registering online.

Paragon Adventure Park Since there are a lot of stockers that go on this annual run, we'll probably be hitting easy to moderate trails. Check Paragon's site for info on what you'll need to bring.

That said, Y'all have little over 4 months to get your Explorers/Rangers/Mounties/Bronco II's/Aviators ready for the show, and if you don't think your truck has a chance of winning anything, ask Lizardtrac or ExplorerEb96 to show you their trophies! Hope to see everyone there- Leave the drama at HOME!!!!!!!!

That's generally what happens when you call me the "T" word in front of everyone and I'm in a bad mood... you get your head rammed into your Explorer's fender :D

You gonna come down for this, Farmboy???

Doubtful. Carlisie is too far for me. If you guys are gonna do a big run at paragon sometime I wouldnt mind riding along with someone. I like watching other people damage their trucks.

We're already registered for the weekend and have a hotel room..Rooms are in very scarce supply this year. I'd suggest trying the Hotel Carlisle (1-800-692-7315)
. We're a little out of town with the Mach 1 group at the Homewood Suites

I am going to try and make it, but if I wheel it will most likely be in the Bronco.
