World-Class Women's Rally Set for October

Rebelle Nena2[10] II

Adventure-loving women have a new competitive event to consider: the inaugural 2016 Rebelle Rally set for Oct. 13-22. The brainchild of veteran off-road racer and trainer Emily Miller, the rally is a seven-day navigation competition that covers 1,000 miles of the southwestern U.S.

Using 4x4s and crossovers, competitors will navigate remote backcountry roads without GPS, cellphone or computer assistance. Maps and a compass are the only aids competitors can use.

The race will have two classes — 4x4s and crossovers — each with their own set of requirements and technical challenges. If you don't own a qualifying vehicle, Jeep Wrangler Rubicons will be available for rent.

Each day of competition will end in a comfortable camp equipped with food, sleeping accommodations and bathroom facilities. The rally will begin in South Lake Tahoe, Nev., and finish in Del Mar, Calif.

To find out more about this first-ever U.S. event or to register, click here.

We expect the event will field quite a few full-size pickup truck entries; in fact, Ram is providing a 2016 Ram 1500 Rebel and sponsoring the team of Nena Barlow and Kande Jacobsen, two longtime adventure enthusiasts who have been involved in competitive rallies (such as the Gazelle Rally in Morocco) and overlanding for many years.

It's interesting, would need some serious meditation to try remember any lady driving a pickup around Montréal.

I guess the race officials will turn off the navigation systems in all the vehicles before the race starts....

wonder what a Rubicon rents by the day..

As soon as a Toyota Tacoma shows up, it is over for the full-size whales!

@Goerge, you must not get out much women are driving pickup's as family mobiles all over Canada. Get used to it. LOL

Wrong truck they will break down for sure.

Do any women frequent this site? I haven't seen any in the comment zone for some time. Let's ask.....Ladies?
Chirp...Chirp...Chirp....(crickets).

Now I know a lady is among us I will be more conscious of that with my future commenting. In my part of the world, women are common place piloting a jacked up 4x4 and pick-ups in general.

We know.

they spend their day combing the net for any negative Ford stuff/resort to 20-30 yr news where many were killed/injured/maimed with bad designs/inferior parts etc etc...

As usual, your being much to kind to Ford, they have been killing, injuring and maiming people for the last century. They simply pay off victims and their families, it cheaper that way. If you drive a FORD, there is a price on your head and your families. Accept it.

I don’t know what’s a leady...lol...imbecile! GM ORGULLOSA DE SER DE CHINA (the field rat) can’t spell 4 letter words yet, but he’s working on it!

BTW – speaking about killed/injured/maimed, U.S. safety officials from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration have opened an investigation into exposure to carbon monoxide in recent models of the Ford Exploder SUVs. The investigation of the Ford Exploder was opened last Friday by NHTSA which said it has identified hundreds of complaints of "occupants smelling exhaust odors in the occupant compartment," and that some of the vehicle owners "expressed concerns about exposure to carbon monoxide." The problem has been noticed, some Exploder owners told NHTSA, when the vehicle is at full throttle such as climbing steep hills, or when the air-conditioning system is recirculating air into the cabin. At first Ford blamed Frank and Lionel for the bad smell, but they soon discovered that this is the way they always smell...ewwww. So they are still looking for the Ford Exploder carbon monoxide leak.

“leady”....haaaahaaaa.... GM ORGULLOSA DE SER DE CHINA don't you love nature, despite what it did to you?

"If you and Lionel were honest with yourselves, you wouldon't never comment in support of Ford..."

GMSRGREAT Ford has a long wonderful history of this behavior....an oldie but a goodie: For more than a decade Ford was dogged with reports and lawsuits that its cars had defective parking gear that caused them to slip into reverse and roll away.

At least 98 fatalities were reported, and Ford settled the matter not with repairs but by mailing owners a warning label they could stick on their dashboards.

That deserves a repeat:

Ford settled the matter not with repairs but by mailing owners a warning label they could stick on their dashboards!

One more time...Ford settled the matter not with repairs but by mailing owners a warning label they could stick on their dashboards!

@gmsrgreat, nice excuse, try to deflect the FACT that GM is in trouble sales slumping, Ford Number 1......Gm going bankrupt

Only one that should be worried about going bankrupt is Ford. Their car sales have been dropping like crazy. If there is a downturn, they won't even have cars sales to kinda limp by on. Plus losing retail market share to both GM and Ram, where the real money is.

What are you even talking about. GM car sales are down thus their huge fire sale trying to give their stuff away and move inventory. Fiat has dropped small cars because they cannot compete in that class. If there is a downturn Ford will be in good shape because they already have small cars in production. GM may be in good shape because they have small cars even though they are .1% in the black compared to Ford motors (not Lincoln up 6.4%. Ford has already spent a ton of money for the future and GM has not. Fiat defiantly has not. If there is a down turn in the economy I feel it will be much worse this time. There is so much dept out there that will not be able to be repaid. Just look at the record breaking truck and SUV sales right now. People are spending money like crazy. At least I know I will be ok if the economy tanks again.

@LMAO, people arent spending money they are borrowing it because CNN told them to do so, the fact is like you stated the economy is tanking fast and nobody seems to care......with companies like GM again placing bets in the SUV/truck market they are making a poor decision...

Yes you are correct, people are spending money on credit. Look how many car loans are out there where you can choose 7 or 8 years to pay it back. I don't know if it is still occurring but I have heard of 40 year home loans. To each their own and they have to make their own financial decisions but long loans tend to cause huge pain in the end. I guess at least with Kia and Hyundai you get a 10 year 100K powertrain warranty.

I always suffer from buyers remorse after I buy a new truck so I don't want that unhappy feeling again so I won't buy one.

grabbing straws? No GM and RAM have been the only ones to gain market share the last 3 plus years. No grabbing straws just cold hard facts son.

Nice to see girls enjoying their trucks.

Good car bad car shows a different story.Ford is right on the heals of GM combined with a 6.4% increase while GM is down 1.6%, from memory. Total volume between Ford and GM is almost neck and neck and GM is a much larger company than Ford. Ford and GM are both losing car sales. People are purchasing new trucks over cars. I believe is is because you can lease a truck for less money than many cars. So with low gas prices people want trucks and Suvs. With a small refresh in the Fusion and hopefully a change in Focus aND Fiesta namely the gtrag dps6 transmission it will put them in anew even better spot if fuel prices go up. Fiat is in a terrible posistion. They have no cars. Just gas guzzlers. They are focusing on trucks and suvs. Sure that is fine now but if gas prices go up as you say, they are the first to go down.

Actually, my dad was a FORD guy for years but the new 1972 Mercury was a turning point. I remember he wasn't impressed about the parking issue, the rust, the oil burning with just 50000 miles on the engine etc, etc. A few years latter he picked up a used 1975 chevy pick-up with the HEI and was blown away on how much better the GM ran compared to the Ford. My dad bought lots of vehicles because he was in a business that required a small fleet of vehicles. It was through that experience I learned the GMs ran, turned, braked and overall out performed Ford's and Dodges. Hence, GMSRGREAT!

^^^^^^
Dumbest story ever. It makes no sense at all. Every 70s era cars burned oil. They all ran like crap because of the carb and the introduction to emissions with cars. maybe you should change your name to 70sgmsrgreat.


LMAO - yeah maybe, he makes Big Al look amature...speaking of Big Al...where is he?? I miss his doomsday predictions for Ford's aluminum trucks & praising Nissan's new truck offering....well I suppose we know why he is remaining silent now...to busy eating crow...hahahaha

Speaking of the world is coming to an end because of aluminum F150 and the Titan will eat sales from F150 only Al, TFL did a tow off between the gas and diesel titan. The gasser ate the diesel alive. I did not imagine that the cummins 5.0L was such a terrible performer.

The story is accurate. Sorry it doesn't suit your version of the 70's.

@GMSUK - speaking of the '70s, the best teenage memories ever driving Dad's Ford trucks ('56 F100, '75 F150 supercab, '78 Bronco w/351 V8). Dad also had a Toyota truck (called Stout) which was not good looking & rode very hard & rough (wasn't good enough to pickup chics).
Our neighbor were Dodge freaks & best friend's Dad was a Chevy dealer. So we all rode/raced/cross-checked each others trucks & knew the mechanical flaws/frequency breakdowns with each others trucks. It was clear even back then the Ford's were better made with least problems & obviously still true today.
Today, I kept the tradition having owned 3 different F150 model years (kept '04 Lightning as a weekend tire burner & 2012 F150 for work) & '14 Ranger Wildtrack as daily driver - the new Raptor is now in my sights but just need to build a new garage to fit it or build a new house...which ever comes first.
