    Default CANCELED: SS/MVPA Rally at Anthracite Outdoor Adventure Area

    Hey everyone! We are very excited to announce that we will be doing a joint Steel Soldiers/MVPA Rally at the Anthracite Outdoor Adventure Area (AOAA) on the weekend of August 10th! That is the same weekend the MVPA will be finishing up their 2019 convention in York, PA, which is about an hour and 20 minutes from AOAA.

    We are planning on arriving on Thursday August 8th or Friday the 9th. We’ll off-road our trucks all day on Friday and Saturday, and then break camp on Sunday the 11th to head for home.

    Lodging: There are multiple hotels within 15-20 minutes of AOAA. There is also camping available at the Trailhead Campground which adjoins the AOAA. I am working with Trailhead to reserve several smaller campsites or hopefully one large one that can hold us all.

    Fees: AOAA truck pass is $30 for a 1-day pass and $45 for a 2-day pass. AOAA passenger pass is $15 for a 1-day pass and $20 for a 2-day pass.

    AOAA RULES:
    All full-size vehicles must have the following:
    1. At least one tow point (example: tow hook or receiver hitch)
    2. Proper roll-over protection to include the passengers. (I’m guessing this means no soft or open top vehicles without a roll-bar/cage. Hard top vehicles are okay, but no WW2 jeeps without some sort of ROPS. I will confirm with AOAA ASAP)
    3. Battery tie down (no bungee cords).
    4. Seat belts for everyone in the vehicles, fire extinguisher and trash bag for liquid spills.
    5. Front and rear tow points are mandatory for the harder trails along with a winch and locker.
    6. Must travel in groups of two or more!


    We are in need of one SS member who is familiar with AOAA to act as a local point-of-contact for the event. Also, we need multiple members who have off-roaded at AOAA previously to act as trail guides during the event. Please post up here or send me a PM if you would like to volunteer.

    Keep checking back here for more information as we get the details ironed out!

    Oh, if Pennsylvania was just a few miles closer to Texas Dianna and I would drive our whole motorpool there to participate.

    ANYONE near enough to bring an MV.... or if you can go sans-MV too - it really would be a great joint MVPA/SS event to support.

    APPLAUSE ! ! !

    Hi Chris! I have been to AOAA many times and also raced my 69 Chevy Blazer there at the Ultra4 event last April.
    I could possibly help out with trail guide duty's.

    Hi Randy! That’s awesome! It would be great to have someone who’s familiar with AOAA to help plan trail rides, etc... It would be nice to come up with several options for SS and MVPA members. There may be some guys who just want to cruise the fire roads, others who want to tackle the really gnarly stuff, and the rest will be somewhere in the middle.

    I am only a few miles from there, but I have not been out on the trails. But I might be able to assist on some things.

    Are there different difficulty levels on the trails?

    Ya know, Chris, my heart longs for an epic road trip like this one would be sure to be remembered.
    The temptation to attend EVERY rally, meet and coffee event is very real and somewhat exaggerated by my semi-remoteness here in west Texas (60 miles to the nearest Interstate Highway).
    However, the Lord's Prayer teaches me, "Lead us not into temptation." So I'd better be listening to the Supreme Commander - aka: God - on this.... at least until HE commands otherwise.
