cg2112 Thanks again for more helpful information. I was checking out videos on you tube at your suggestion and was both stunned and impressed with the depth of the water and how effective the wrangler was handling it. Since mine is a daily driver, I know I don't want to take on water/mud like I saw in the video. It does seem that in either location, catskills or Pine Barrens, I should have beginner trails that will let me get my feet wet so to speak without any collatoral damage.
I look forward to your photos/videos, especially of the more beginner trails.

i have not yet been to the catskills, so i can't give you any feedback there. as far as the pine barrens are concerned, there is a lot of water, but the amount and depth of the water depends on which skill level trail you go on. the beginner trails (green and blue) have shallower water and they have "go arounds" next to the harder obstacles. the intermediate trails (yellow and orange) have more obstacles with deeper water and a few "go arounds." the "expert" trail (red) has very deep water and very challenging obstacles with no "go arounds." my first off road outing ever was during the pine barrens jamboree. that year i did one beginner and one intermediate trail that year with my bone stock tj "x". i did just fine and did not do any damage at all. my hubby took his commander (XK) before he had the lift and stuff. in fact, he uses the commander to tow my cj7 down there and then wheels the XK all weekend. i will post some pics and video of the different trails.

I think I would have enjoyed it even more if I could have played on the coarse but I'm looking forward to it next year with my lift and quite a few other goodies!

4Jeepn I think its a great way to learn what your jeep can do along with meeting other jeep owners. I have been a trail guide with the program for several years. As for the trail most trips have different skills levels so you can find something that works for you. I would find a trip you think you might like and then look on youtube for video. That is a good way to get a better feel.

Also stock jeeps do great. Few things I would get if you don't have them. Front and rear tow points. Tools to unhook the front sway bar links and some zip ties to tie them to the frame. This will help your jeep flex better off road. Handles a bit like jello on road, so be ready for that. Other usefull items, CB, I also would say maybe some rockerguards if its in the budget, as to me its worth a few hundred to protect that area.

jgano23 my hubby and i go to the pine barrens jamboree every year and we went to the paragon one before it closed up. i love the jamborees and would recommend going to one, especially if you are new to off roading. there are beginner trails and all trails have trail guides that spot you through obstacles. the jamborees are a good place to meet other jeep freaks and make friends that you can go wheeling with in the future.

Jp90Talon Go topless day in Mass was a blast though I didnt attept any of the course because I had large tire without a lift at the time but it looked amazing

GAJR in somers ct was pretty decent despite the rain. Still a good turnout and they had a few rock piles to play on

jeep Jamboree

I was looking for some feedback from anybody who attended a Jeep Jamboree in the Northeast area. Was it worth it? are the trails difficult?
I have a 06 wrangler sport, daily driver. only use 4wd when it snows, so that typically is 3-4 time in a given year. I want to attend a jamboree to use my jeep for what is was made for.
thanks for your responses.
