Always Striving for More

Last Fall on Social Media, I noticed this thing, called the Rebelle Rally. Two of my online friends were participating, so I decided to check it out.

Rebelle Rally ~ a 7 day competition. A race, but not a race for speed. A unique & demanding event based on the elements of headings, hidden checkpoints, time, & distance using maps, compass, & roadbooks. 2016 was the 1st women's off-road navigation rally in the US.


I watched the live tracking over the seven days of competition as the women trekked across California and Nevada. I watched with awe and respect as these women stepped up to the challenge. I also dreamed of me being one of those racers. Although at the time I felt it was a dream out of reach until... this weekend.




I thought to myself, "Why does this dream have to be out of reach?" I can make this dream happen I just need to strive for it and not be afraid. It can be a dream I make happen. So that is what I will do. I have added it to my bucket list. I will look into educating my self on navigation and go from there. 





In the meantime I plan to follow along with my Instagram friend Crawler Chick as she builds her Jeep Gecko for the 2017 Rebelle Rally. She has started a blog as well. crawler_chick.edge4x4.com
