@afgman786 and I are going to take a Day Trip to Wolf Den Run State Park.

I made a pre-run out to the Huckleberry Rocks Area of Wolf Den Run State Park. It's a rural location. I encourage reliable vehicles only attend. It doesn't seem like there are large groups there every weekend, and I can imagine us being the only group there. If your vehicle somehow becomes inoperable, we can tow you to Kitzmiller, but I don't know where the nearest wrecker service is located and/or where it would take your vehicle for repair. Just providing a full disclosure of my impression. Now that the precautionary notes are out of the way, for those interested in joining us you should:

- Acquire a DNR ORV Annual Sticker $10
AND
- Call the Herrington Manor office, 7 days a week, 9 AM - 3 PM to pay the $10 per day/visitor fee ($12 out of state per visitor) for registration

If you are planning to attend, please post here after both steps are complete to let us know you are coming and we will call the office to make the group reservation.

We will meet at the entrance to the Huckleberry Rocks Area, 890 North Hill Road, Kitzmiller, MD 21538 at 10:30 AM. Driver meeting at 11:00 AM.

Please top off your tank before meeting up. The last place for gas the way my GPS took me to the park was at Liberty, 4284 Union Hwy, Mt Storm, WV 26739.

Administrative notes:
- I have 5 FRS radios (no license required) that I’ll bring for comms.

- Required equipment:
4WD vehicle in good working order (with a full tank of gas)
Recovery/tow points front and rear
Full size spare tire and whatever is needed to change it on the trail (jack, lug wrench, wheel lock key, etc.)

- Nice to have, but not required:
Snacks, lunch, drinks (opportunities to purchase close by are slim-to-none)
TP & waste bags in case you hear the call of nature (Tread Lightly!)
Recovery equipment
Whatever you need to air down
Whatever you need to air up (if you air down)
Hand tools
Folding chair to sit on while eating
Sunscreen and bug spray

Cool. Let us know how it goes, especially if you think it would be something one could do solo (w/o being unnecessary risky) or perhaps a second vehicle with a less experienced driver.

I called the main office (spoke to Debbie who is very helpful & friendly), and we have a reservation for tomorrow. She said there will be other vehicles there tomorrow, but we’re well under to 50 vehicle limit.

She explained that the DNR ORV Annual Sticker is intended for non-DMV registered vehicles (SxS, etc.) only. So if we return next year, we only need to pay the $10/$12 registration fee. Dope! Now we know.

Looking forward to blazing trails tomorrow. See you guys then!
