But now that I do, where can we have a little Saturday fun for the price of a tank of gas.
Not sure what to tell you. Most of my friends have also lived in Texas all their lives and have wheeled all over the state (and beyond, of course) and they also consider this a very worthwhile event due to the unique terrain, scenery, and organization of the event. If you don't want to go, that's fine, but the rest of us are going to have a blast. Yes, it's expensive, but that's why we only do it every other year or so.

If you want to wheel for the price of a tank of gas, try Hidden Falls.

Agreed I can't wait for the jamboree!!

For a cheap local spot hidden falls is a good one, a full day is around $25 or so. Price gets up there quick too when you do a full weekend deal, I think it's around $14 to primitive camp per night so for a Fri-Sun trip that's 2 nights at $14 and 2 days of wheeling at $25 each for a total of around $78. That is only for one driver, an adult passenger is extra and any other vehicles besides the tow rig and rig are extra per night.

For those experienced in the Jamboree, is there any hope if you are just on the waiting list?

Stan, I've seen it happen, but not often. Have you called JJUSA to inquire?

I'm #60 on the waiting list, so there's no hope of making it this year

Palo Duro would be great, but it's a long drive out there from Austin.

That's a bummer, man. I'd like to make Palo Duro, too, but doubtful it'll be in the budget...

Against Palo Duro is awesome if it's in your budget. Aside from the trails the trail guides made this trip worth every penny when I went in 2011.

Since this Jamboree is full I will agree with above poster. Give Palo Duro a chance - you will be pleasantly surprised. Trails made by jeeps for jeeps. Our jeep club built the trails. The Jamboree is the only time other people get to wheel at the ranch. You will have a good time.
