Hey, man, welcome to the board!
Another local guy! I'm up in Kennett Square, PA just over the DE border, and there's tons of us locally here. We had like 15 trucks on the biggest day of our 3 day Wharton meet. Just use the search here for "Wharton" and look for the photo and video highlights from the most recent April trip.
Wharton State Forest is 110,000 acres of mild to moderate wheeling in dirt, sand, mud and deep water. My avatar shot is from a video of me crossing a ford in Wharton successfully (and then getting stuck on the far side getting out, dang it...) that was about 3 feet deep. Keep in mind my truck is lifted and on 35's. But there are lesser holes to play in to challenge a stock or smaller tired built truck as well.
We also go up into coal country and wheel strip mines and such, but that's possible a problem, so I'm not sure how many of those trips we'll be making in the future.
Some of us are joining Rausch Creek where you join for $10 a year and it's costs $25 a day to wheel. Reading Anthracite Co. will sell you a $100 per year permit to wheel on any of their land that isn't currently being mined and that's a big area.
