On the The Trails, Day 2, July 12th
|Friday Line up|
|John has owned this Jeep for 38 years|
After Breakfast we headed out to the trails. What an awesome line up of Jeeps we had. We had everything from a 1977 CJ7 all the way up to a 2015 JK. Each body style of wrangler between the two was represented by at least 1 rig. We even had an XJ. One of the Gentlemen in our group has been on 25 Jamborees. One of the Cjs had a fuel issue before we really got started so he had to head back to home base, but he was able to get it fixed and go out on Saturday. The other CJ lost his water recovery cap on the trail. They thought they maybe out for the day too. BUT WAIT another participant found his cap on the trail. After a little duct tape and zipties he was back on the trail with us and was able to finish the day.

The trail Truck Dent was featured in a 2012 Jeep
Wrangler Rubicon review video. Click here to watch the video. That makes it a special trail to drive for Jeep owners, and especially during a Jeep event.

The driver's meeting went a bit faster on this day. Everyone had been on the trails now, and the newbies were not such newbies anymore, they had graduated to novice. They didn't need as much help getting ready as well as on the trails. Places we did a lot of spotting the day before we didn't have to on Saturday. We ran about an hour ahead of schedule all day. Even though this group was a bit quieter than the day before we still had a lot of fun.

On Saturday we had the pleasure of the Bushwacker team joining use. We had Ken and Dan from Bushwacker and from GA, James with Lund International the parent company of Bushwackers.

James had never been off road before so Ken let him drive the Jeep. I think we have created another monster. He seemed to really enjoy himself.
We got done about an hour earlier than we planned, but it worked out. Everyone took off and hit the Ice Creamery before dinner.
It is hard to put this experience into words. It was so cool seeing the people that have been into Jeeping for many years, welcome all the newbies into the lifestyle. The comradery is unbelievable.
I want to thank Mark and Terry for all the effort they put in to make this a wonderful event! I don't think it would have been the same without them.
