2010 Jeep Jamborees

Anyone sign up for 2010 Jamborees? I signed up for Penns Woods and the Catskills. They are doing trails only for all the Jamborees now so it is a lot cheaper than last year. If anyone is on the fence, they are really nice event to attend and I had a lot of fun last year.

Signed up for the Penn's Woods and French Lick ones.

French lick was my forst ever JJUSA last year and had a blast. A bit pricey, but if you're new to off-raoding it's a great way to get introduced to it.

Signed up for Penns woods(3rd time), Catskills(3rd time), and Killington(2nd time). Wife and son love them, they are how I got the ok to build up the jeep. Our opinion on these 3 are: Penns Woods has the best food and people, Catskills have the best trails, and Killington has the best scenery, but love them all.

I am new to all this. Am considering the one in the Catskills but curious if it is for me. I have only my Jeep for a week and don't have much experience off road. My Jepp is totally stock as well. Any advice?

You will be fine in a stock jeep wrangler at the Catskills jamboree. I took my stock liberty on the Penns woods jamboree last year and my Wrangler is heck of alot more capable stock than my liberty. Just do the lower rated trails and you will be fine. Many people at the jambroees have no experience off road and the trail guides no this. They will watch out for you. They are a lot fun and will get you hooked on wheeling. I HIGHLY recomend going on one. Do not worry about your experience, this is the PERFECT way to get some.

Exsonyguy - as 139 said, you will have no problems with your JK. During last year's French Lick JJ, my group had a stock JK and it was aswesome. I was really impressed on how well a stock JK handled the terrain. Other than a monor issue with the front chassis cover.

Couple of suggestions would be:
1) Set of sway bar discos.
2) A skid plate under the front chassis skid (the JK with us tore of the OE plastic front chassis cover on the very first hill, so, just a FYI.)

Unless you have a rubicon, you do not need a front skid, just rip that plastic thing out and bring it to the dump. If you get hood bounce, get the Skid Row front skid for about 70 bucks. It will get rid of the hood bounce.

You're are lucky!! It's about 4-1/2 hours for us. I'm sure it will be worth the trip though. Should we plan any extra days for local stuff? We like old towns with history, stuff like that.............I know about the oil museum and WW2 museum......anything else worth mentioning??

Any thoughts on where to stay.....not sure if we're camping or rooming yet......

Thanks,
Steve

If there are still rooms available I would stay at the Campus. If you want to camp, willow bay is probably your best bet. I think contact info both is in the registration packet.

The WWII museum is really cool. Is not very big and doesnt look like much from the outside but they have a lot of really interesting stuff to check out. I have never been to the oil museum but have heard that his interesting as well.

If you are into hiking there are a lot of oppurtunites in the area. My favorite place to go is Alleghany State Park. It is right across the border in NY. It is a huge state park and they have a lot of well maked trails for hiking. They also have really nice designated mountain bike trails.

Allegany State Park Enchanted Mountains - Naturally Yours to Enjoy! - Cattaraugus County in Western New York

If you like casinos, there is a really nice one in Salamanca NY which is about 20 minutes from bradford in NY.

No problem.

You are like only 45 minutes from Rausche Creek. Have you ever been there? That is a great place, if you havent been you should check it out.
