I'm free that weekend and it is on my list of events to do - it appears to be about 4 hours away from here. Has anyone done it before?

I have not personally ridden it but several guys from the Cumberland area have. They all go back. They say the trails are excellent. The whole event first rate.

Its a great ride!! I'm just not sure if i can make it this year. Heres a write up i did a few years ago.

Say theres no place to ride ?? well say no more, just Join AMA's
2006 District 7 Dual Sport Adventure Series


100 Miles of Bad Road Returns
After canceling the Mill Hall Dual Sport for the last couple of years things were looking pretty bad, but Dirty Daubber's have returned in style and grace! The retiring of an uncooperative DNR official has paved the way for greater access, albeit once a year, to the spectacular wooded forest around the Mill Hall / Loch Haven areas of Central Pennsylvania. This year was one of the best rides I have ever been to.
A decent contingency of GVMC riders logged well over 100 miles each day on everything from power sliding around fire roads WFO, to handlebar tight woods but mostly consisting of beautiful, curvy grass cover trails for miles on end with speed only limited by how far you can see around the next turn. Way cool stuff indeed. Plenty of challenging rocky options, awesome scenic views, BBQ and Kegs for Saturday night party, everyone wins plenty of door prizes, they really did it up right.

On Sunday, although plenty of great trails, there was only one option section, Horehey "wise one" R was in front and bravely ran away down the Main course, the rest of us fools were led astray by a seemingly harmless little option trail that had a couple of sections that became brutal. One particularly nasty section had a bunch of roots and a big slippery rock with a ditch before it, the best line by was to ride the high side of the rock on an off camber root covered hill. Most of us just slammed the rocks, pushed and paddled our way thru but C made the cleanest pass of everybody, he had great momentum even with the loose rocky uphill start, neutral throttle across the slippery bad part and right back on it for the corkscrew. Well done!! Rock and Roll points to C, R and T for banging thru the big nasty without once asking "What is the quickest way back to the truck?" R looks like the new Katoom was made just for him, we were all banging bars jockeying for position on Saturday.

Ken,

I definitely want to try to do this. I am going to see if I can sort out my schedule this weekend. I probably can only do Saturday though, but I think that is supposed to be the best day.
