    Get ready and reserve your spot for the 7th annual FJ Northeasters Northeast Run. Join us at Rausch Creek Off-Road Park on May 16th-18th for a week-end of wheeling events. Come meet other FJ Owners from Northeast USA and Canada and make new friends while enjoying 30 miles of some of the most beautiful trails around.

    Spend a memorable weekend in a 1700 acre off-road park. Meet and run the trails with other FJ Cruisers. We have trails for every level of driver and vehicle. Have a chat with reps and techs from our sponsors. Stay on the site in a comfortable RV or book a room in one of the nearby lodging facilities.
    The FJNortheasters Northeast Run is a non-profit event. In 2013 FJNortheasters donated over $3,000.00 to charity. The registration fee is $70 which includes a catered dinner & raffle (Saturday evening) at the Twin Grove Campground's private lodge, a T-Shirt, and one FJNE sticker. If you do not want the included meal, you can let us know during the registration process and your registration will only cost $50. You can also buy extra meals, t-shirts, and stickers during the registration process.

    Late registration (those after the April 30th, 2014 cutoff) can not be guaranteed a T-shirt or Event decal. We will be ordering extras but can not guarantee size availability for T-shirts and depending on the number of registrants, we can not guarantee a spot for the dinner/raffle. Please make sure you register before the April 30th, 2014 deadline to guarantee the above! Late registration will be $35 which does not include a T-shirt, Decal, and Dinner/Raffle.

    The event will be held rain or shine
    We will not be able to give any refunds after April 30th, 2014
    Please note that the registration fee does not include access to the park. To wheel at Rausch Creek Park you must first register with them for $15 a year, there is a charge of 35$/day (or a 5 time pass for 150$) per vehicle and 7$/day for passengers of age 16 and up.

    The FJNortheasters are not liable for anyone's wrong doing, property damages (personal and/or to the park) or injuries resulting from this event. You are responsible for your own actions and will be personally responsible for any compensation for the above mentioned articles. This event is solely for the purpose of a social gathering. You will be expected to abide by the rules of the Rausch Creek Off Road Park. Rausch Creek Off Road Park. Failure to follow the park rules or not carrying yourself in a responsible manner will result in your dismissal from the event. The FJNortheasters follow the "Tread Lightly" philosophy for off roading. Be responsible and be respectful, that's all we expect from you.

    This is an awesome run that should not be missed. I know I can speak for the rest of the Northeasters when I say we are hoping to see more Tacoma's lined up with us this year in May.

    We regularly cap the numbers around 90 but this year the cap is off to accommodate more non-FJ trucks. More Land Cruisers (60, 80, 100...etc) and hopefully more Tacoma's

    Get registered now and make plans for May 16th to 18th

    Join us and meet a world of folks from the Northeast and surrounding areas for a weekend full of fun and do some wheeling too. Meet up with old friends and make new ones. Wheel some green trails and see the park or hit the blues and chew up some Rausch Rock. Or strap in for some black trail and prepare to test man and machine with some awesome obstacles. Experience J1, Trail #14, Jodders Way, Pizza Rock, Yellow Jacket, Lake Christy and Tip Top.....Just to name a few.

    Trail categories:
    Green: stock friendly. Loads of fun for everyone and remains the most requested trail level.
    Blue: Stepping up to Blue trail it is a good idea to have a lift, tires and some armour. Stock suspended trucks have done blue trails as there are bypasses for many obstacles but that is at the owners discretion.
    Black: Pretty much goes without saying that Black trails are for heavily modified rigs and VERY experienced drivers.

    All of our trail leaders and tailgunners have knowledge of the park and experience with whatever trail level they are leading. You will be in good hands on any run you choose.

    We are still a couple months out and I will add more info as it becomes available. But get out your calendars and mark in May 16th to the 18th for the Run.

    Our FJNortheasters Club is now one of the largest off road clubs in the Northeast with almost 1000 registered members in our forum and we will put over 100 trucks in the woods and on the rocks of Rausch...

    The Club is also eagerly trying to attract sponsors so if you know anyone that would like to get their company seen by well over 200 enthusiastic off roaders then this is the place to be and be seen.

    Personally I would love to see some stock Tacos make it to the run so I could see how they do on the green trails. I love my FJ but when it's time in my garage is over I am hoping to replace it with a Tacoma. I had a 90 (PU) and a 98 Tacoma so I think a newer gen Taco would be the next logical step.

    I believe there is a stock tacoma going but not sure. I have a 3inch lift on mine with no armor but I will probably be riding in a fzj80 :cool:

    Well if I get there I will be checking out that Tacoma's for sure. Looking around this forum always gets me thinking about having a taco again.

    If I can make it out for another wheeling trip I will likely still be stock. I am still a best gen taco though.

    The green trails have their own challenges...... With a 16hr commute home I don't have the time for trail damage so I have always stuck to greens.....But I have to tell you at the end of each day I never feel like I wasn't wheeling hard all day. The trails they are a changin' and a few greens have been upped to blue status.

    We normally put about 100 trucks in the woods for our Spring run and that has always been capped. This year there is not restrictions so it is wide open.

    That would be awesome with the wheeling we do and the exposure you would get, i am sure you'd get a couple of new clients.

    If I don't throw in a sponsorship, I think I will donate a gift certificate for the raffle at the very least. Let me figure out some things. I did this for a get together on the northeast coast a while back.
