Update:

As of 8/26:

175 Registered, 75 spots left. You have to have your registration postmarked by September 1st, only 5 days left, and that's if it doesn't get to 250 first.

For those that have sent theirs in, check out the confirmation link that I PMed you to see if you made it yet.

The final answer regarding camping on site, other than tent, is still being worked on, and will be sent out with the confirmation email September 2nd.

Be well,
Richard

The camper/popup/motorhome issue is still being worked on, answers will be sent with the confirmation email September 2nd.

Be well,
Richard

Guys, the Annual will have lots of new Jeepers out for the first time.

One great thing about mixing new Jeepers/wheelers with experienced wheelers is that, it helps the newer folks with their "learning curve".

It really helps your nerves to watch someone else go over an obstacle first.. that way, you know it can be done. It also helps to have a few experienced eyes watching you... that can help keep you out of bad situations.

The Annual is always a fun event... nothing like hearing all the exciting stories after the first day of trail riding..

I like the look on everyones faces after the first day..... They just can't stop smiling.

The Confirmation Email hasn't been sent yet, as they are still working out last minute details and decisions.

If you need the link to the Registration Confirmation List to see if you made it, just shoot me a PM.

Hey Sccrstar, glad to see that your comin' to the Annual, enjoyed wheelin' at the July Bash with you, see ya there.

Be well,
Richard

Beginner in an XJ here too guys, so you aren't alone lol. I've been on a few small trails here and there, but never an actually OHV park. Can't wait for this, especially since I'll get to try out all the new parts in my sig!

Yup. I was supposed to get them put in today, but my buddy had some stuff come up, so I'm taking the Jeep in on Monday instead. It's a tad last minute, but he's an awesome mechanic so it should be fine. Can't wait to see how they feel.

New wheels and tires are going on today. I need to find a place to test them out

Rigidco bumper just got put on Tuesday, so thats ready to roll.

I have one of those sitting in my garage as well, next to a front driveshaft and all the rebuild parts on order Doubt I'll get it in before the event since I don't want to screw something up during the install and not be able to make the drive down.

sweet, so well be the select few without the sye, as long as part of some type of group lol. I think itll be allright, I put mine through a decent trail last month, didnt have many problems except my tc crossmember, that thing hangs low like a 3rd leg or something. I did put a tc skid on, so maybe thatll minimize some damage

You guys should be fine, Camp Jeep is held here, there are folks that wheel these trails bone stock, so no worries. Don't get me wrong, there are tougher obstacles, but there are bypasses everwhere, too. There will be plenty of experienced wheelers, plus Trail Guides to help you out too if you want to do something you're not sure about. Plenty of people wheel their daily drivers and can't mess their Jeep up also. As BESRK said, "It really helps your nerves to watch someone else go over an obstacle first.. that way, you know it can be done." and it also helps to show you a line that works if they make it. After two days on the trail you'll find that your skills will be greatly improved.

We're gonna have a blast!

Be well,
Richard
