My wife and I will be there! Looking forward to it and have heard high reviews on it. The guides are the ones who run Land Between the Lakes jamboree so there will be some familiar faces for me. It looks like it will be around an 8 hour drive for us.

I was as the LBL Jamboree as well, so I was comfortable knowing that many of the same staff would be there.

I'm going solo again, about 8+ hours for me too. So, I decided to drive down a day early and show up on Wednesday evening.

I made it back... I had a great time. I did the RedBird and Commando trails. The conditions were pretty dry, a bit of rain would have made it interesting. When you get up in the mountains, the views are great.

No damage that I have found, only pin stripping .

My wife and I had a great time also! We ran Bridge Rock on Friday and Cliffhanger on Sat. Both of our trails were in Jellico, Tn. That is a beautiful area this time of year. As far as the specs on this ride it's a standard Jeep Jamboree under the name of Gateway to the Cumberlands. Check out jeepjamboreeusa.com and click on trails for a list of the different rides they have.

Both of the trails I ran were rated 5. Rain would have made it much higher, but it was nice being dry - less to clean off!
