Jeeptoberfest

I was just wondering if anyone's planning to go? I had a blast last year, even without going on any of the trails.

Had a great time last year, I'll be back again this year.

I won't wait as long to go on the obstacle courses, the earlier the better. By mid-afternoon, the lines were very long to get on the courses.

Last year was my first year, it was a wrench session working on my buddies jeep the rolling black disco jeep when it broke down on the slow crawl but it was fun, this year is going to be just as fun or better

Working on a grand cherokee but it might not be ready for the event so I will bring the JK which is "almost finished"

Build it Break it Fix it - Repeat

Anyone in the Jacksonville area interested in meeting up for a convoy down there? First time I'll be out there and it'll be nice to know someone before hand :P

The 2 camp grounds they have on their site are full that weekend. I was planning on doing the same :-/ but if I can't find a camp site I may just go Saturday and make the drive back.

Everything fills up fast when this event takes place, be it the camp ground or the hotels. Might be to late for this year.
I was lucky to find one yesterday an exit south of 484 off 75.The best thing to do next year is as soon as they post up the dates book your reservation where ever you want to stay.

Well I managed to get the very last site available at lake griffin state park. About 20 minutes away from the Market of Marion. I'll just be driving up Friday night and staying at the campground then leaving Saturday night. Can't wait!

You can camp at Hardrock if you don't mind nasty bathrooms lol. The plus side. You are already inside for Wheeling. Also there's a trucks top just down the road with great shower facilities.

I've all ready got my reservation for Friday night but I may look into that for Saturday night. Just depends on my work schedule.

Question for jeeptoberfest veteran.... I was originally thinking about going just for Saturday but will I be able to see and do all the courses in a day or is it worth spending sat and sun?

We will have close to a 1000 Jeeps show up for this event, paid entry.

The lines were too long last year to get on the courses so we made some significant changes we hope will help that alot.

That said, with the number of vendors, number of Jeeps, courses, raffles, auctions, etc. you may want to stay the whole weekend.

Your choice, but places to stay are getting harder to find.

You will have a blast no matter if you are there 2 days or 2 hours.

It is hard to describe the thoughts with that many Jeeps and so much happening at the same time. Just standing there looking is amazing.

I'm glad I don't have to look for some place to stay since I live like two miles from where it's at
