We went last year and it was a BLAST!!!

Since we've now moved to Texas, it's just too far for a weekend jaunt.

Saturday at the infield they have obstacle courses for stockers and lockers, but be prepared to wait for a LOOOOONG time. We had fun walking around all the vendors and seeing what goodies they had to give away. We also won a cam can from the drawings. There was also a different giveaway section in the host hotel where you could buy tickets and drop them in the bag for whichever items you were interested in. That's where the higher dollar value items were. That was done Friday afternoon. The regular drawings were Saturday afternoon at the infield.

The jeep parade on Sunday was a sight to behold! Jeeps streaming down the beach for MILES! I can't remember how many there were last year, but it seemed like the line went on forever...

If we lived closer, we would DEFINITELY be going again. I believe tabber02 is going. My sister is going but she has a WK.... just not the same as a wrangler.

Make sure you take lots of pictures if you go and share them with those of us less fortunate!

We plan on coming over Saturday for the day and want to know if I should still register if I just wanna walk around to see the other jeeps and vendors or just pay the spectator fee??? I'm new to all of this.

If you're only going for Saturday (what we're planning to do), I've been told to only register if you want to participate in the obstacle course at the Speedway. Since I don't want to participate and just want to spectate, I'm not registering. I think the fee for spectating is $10 or $15.

I'm new to all of this too (first Jeep Beach) so I'm just using this year to figure out what I want to do next year. From what I understand, registration is about $80 or $100 and gives you access to the courses and allows you to be in the parade Sunday. Also, I've heard the lines for the courses are terribly long - upwards of sitting there two to three hours. Again, I'm new to this and am only going on what I've heard.

The obstacle lines are most definitely long. Aside from the sheer number of people who want to run the courses, you have to wait while people are spotted over the harder courses and recovered OFF the courses when happens. We saw plenty of that last year. The vendors who came with parts to sell said they were sold out of EVERYTHING they brought with them by noon, repairing jeeps that didn't make it through the courses.

They are fun to watch, too. You get to see some really cool rigs and sometimes see some pretty crazy stuff. We had a guy flip his jeep off the course right in front of us. Luckily no one was hurt, except maybe his pride...

Not my video (we were watching from the ground), but this is the flip.

We will be heading over for Friday and Saturday with the Lakeland Jeep club. I think they were overwhelmed last year by the turnout and will be better prepared this year. IT WAS A BLAST !!!

I'll be driving down to Jeep Beach from Ma about an 18 hr drive according to google maps. First year with a jeep and seems like a great event. Not to mention the people who put it together then give money from the event to charity

We'll be heading up Thursday afternoon. It's under a 4 hour ride, so probably get to the hotel around 6 or so.

X2! We left the hotel EARLY last year and still sat in line for probably fifteen minutes waiting to get to the gate.
