As much as I’d prefer to keep this blog in sync, I also believe that certain events are worthy of mention, even though they disrupt the chronological order of the posts. It’s been almost ten months since the last Northeast Run at Rausch Creek which means only a couple more months before they do it all over again. That’s right folks, the FJ Northeasters are at it again, playing host to an event chalk-full of excitement, friends and fun! Round three of this annual FJ Cruiser event is scheduled to take place during Easter weekend, specifically the 2nd, 3rd and 4th of April, 2010.
Registration forms are not yet online but should be up shortly for anyone interested. Accommodations for the area can be scarce if you wait until the last minute so I highly suggest researching your options now. The folks at Rausch Creek have made it pretty easy by providing a nice compilation of nearby campgrounds and hotels. So don’t wait. Make those reservations now!
For those not in the know, this event is focused on gathering Toyota FJ Cruiser owners together for a three-day off-roading extravaganza at Rausch Creek Offroad Park in Tremont, Pennsylvania. Although the majority of vehicles will be FJ Cruisers, any and all platforms are welcome to join in the fun. Rausch Creek is a great off-roading playground with more than 1700 acres of trails, rocks, mud and water holes. The trail ratings range from very mild (green) to hard-core (black/red), so there’s plenty of fun to be had regardless of your experience level.
Last year’s event hosted 85 rigs and more than 150 registered participants, and proved to be a fantastic success and a great way to meet other folks with similar interests. And I have a sneaking suspicion that this year’s event will be even bigger! On somewhat of a side note, if you are a parts vendor, big or small, this year’s hosts are looking for sponsors. If you currently offer parts for the FJ Cruiser platform, this is a great opportunity to get your product seen by those that could use it most.
I’ll post an update to this entry once the registration information is available. But I wanted to get the word out early in case some of you may not have heard. If you have even the slightest bit of interest in participating, I would highly encourage you to register once the forms are available. This is a great opportunity to meet new folks and for those new to the sport, an opportunity to see just how capable your vehicle is in the off-road world. See you on the trails!
