Jamboree at Borrego Springs

I have a 2010 Rubicon and I am a nuubie. I was thinking about taking my duaghter (11 yo) to the Jamboree at Borrego Springs.

I wanna see what this jeep wil do without thrashing it

Has anybody been in past years to Borrego?
Should I go on a trip w/o the Jeep Jamberee crowd first?
Do you camp or stay at the Palm Resort?
Are there other kids?
Did you do the Fully Catered version or the Bring your own food version?
Fun?
Worth it?

Thanks for any input or encouragement

Im not familiar with Borrego Springs, Im sure some others are though. Another option you may consider is our Meet and Greet that we are setting up. At the end of july a few of the forum members are meeting in Big Bear. If you are willing to make a trip out, we would love to have you. It will also be my first meet and greet trip. Here is a link to the thread if you are interested

Also congrats on the new jeep!

Roll Call! 3rd Semi-Annual WF Meet and Greet

I have not done a run there with a Jamboree, but our last couple of Meet and Greets have been there. A lot of fun and a stock Rubi will be very capable. If you are worried about damage and are new to off-roading, I would recommend finding someone that is experienced as a spotter to help you thru the tight stuff.

If you are wanting to do a run with camping and fun times, we are also doing the 3rd Semi Annual WF Meet n Greet in Big Bear. You are more than welcome to join us and I know you will have a good time with good people. Roll Call! 3rd Semi-Annual WF Meet and Greet.

I have never been to a jamboree, but i hear they can be fun.

As for going out off roading, Never, Ever go out alone, and if your a newbe, go out with people who are Experienced. There are lots of videos on youtube showing people rolloing their jeeps due to having no experience or having a spotter with no experience.

Now if you want to go camping and off roading, i belong to a great camping club that has a high number of off roaders in it. As a result, every trip has off roading involved. Southern California Camping Club

Jeep Jamborees are fun but they are also very expensive to attend. Have you found any Jeep clubs by where you live that you could join? Most organize trail runs that are very suitable for beginners to show them that their Jeeps are generally capable of doing far more difficult trails than their owners are ready for.

The above suggestion to attend the Meet & Greet up in Big Bear is a very good one, the bunch that will be there are all really super people and no one will try to get you to do a trail that is above your abilities. I'm going to try to attend that event myself if I can finish getting the Jeep offroad-worthy again.

Thanks for the invite! I like the sound of the Meet and Greet in Big Bear on July 30.
I'll mark that on the calander.

Do I need to bring anything besides the jeep and my co-pilot Jylli (11 yo daughter).
Food, drinks, etc...
Are you s Tent Camper group? I have a tent, air matress, etc
Are there other kids at the meet and greet that are ~11 y.o.?

Let me know what I can bring to the Pot Luck

Thanks!!
