The FJ Bruisers
June 10th, 2017
Green Ridge State Forest
A Cinderella Story…
It all started one day in 2009 as “an idea….”
“I have an idea and I am enlisting your comments and help. I think the club would have a hell of a time if we provided an outing/trail ride that would be designed like an old fashioned Time/Distance/Speed/Navigation Road Rally.”
And the first rally went down as a day in Bruiser infamy. Well at least to some. Most had a really good time.
Unofficial Second Rally
Then there was the unofficial official or official unofficial second rally. Chupacabra destroyed that one. Or the Jersey Devil. Or the New Jersey political powers that be. You decide.
Rally Ménage à trois
Then with better product placement (and television deal) and endorsement, planning (and cooperating weather), the third installment of this “idea” occurred. Rally Ménage à trois.
Once again another day in Bruiser infamy (anyone else notice a theme here?). For some a wet raucous day. Others a day in the woods getting lost and trying to hunt down checkpoints.
Which finally leads us to…

Question and Answer Thread Here
Following along the same hijinks & shenanigans and abacus calculations of Rally 1, 2, and 3…
Grab your licensed 4×4 vehicle, a navigator, and put your seatbelts on for another fun time out at Green Ridge State Forest!
NOTE: This is not a race!
This is a modified Time-Speed-Distance Rally. This is not a race!
You and a navigator will attempt to complete a course covering a certain distance in a certain amount of time while driving at or below posted speed limits.
There will also be other challenges thrown in to the event to level the playing field.
Basic map, compass, and math skills are a huge plus. A keen eye for taking in the scenery is a huge plus. Knowledge of nonsensical trivia is a huge plus. A navigator is not only a huge plus, but mandatory.
