I think the storyline can be about anything, the rules don't specify. I remember Road Scholar from states two years ago in PA, and it had stuff like a football placekicker who kicked a ball 1.2 miles and then crashed through a church window. It also included someone who liked to walk under power transmission lines and people who got hot and sweaty from lounging around on their couch.

So the test can pretty much be about anything.

Some of those are very random

eak227 wrote:Here's how we used to do it:

Take a piece of printer paper, and line up the 2 points, placing big marks at each end point. Now, going along between the endpoints, at every contour line you see, place a little dash on the edge of the paper at the spot. So by the end you'll have a sheet of paper with a bunch of little dashes running along the edge of the sheet. It is also helpful to record the elevation of maybe every third or fourth mark so you don't lose your spot.

Now, figure out your min and max elevation between the two points by looking at the map. Set up an appropriate scale on your chart, with elevation going up the Y axis and just location along the X axis.

Take your piece of paper, and line up the left end point with the x=0 spot on your chart. Make a little dot on the appropriate line of elevation. Now, keeping the left end point on the x=0 spot, go through and place a little dot at every elevation dash you made on that sheet of paper. It can be difficult to keep track of what exact elevation each dash is for, so be careful. Once you're done, you will have a series of dots mapping out a nice curve, perfectly scaled to match the topo map. All that's left is to connect the points as smoothly as realistically as possible and you'll have a perfect profile.

I would guess they would use a NY highway map and two topographic NY maps.
