|TangoJK||I did the French Lick Jamboree several years ago and it is a lot of fun... but the cost is pretty high. Just something to consider and weigh your other options maybe with another club as some have suggested.|

No, Interlake is not really new. It has been around for years but it is relitivly new to most.
The IFWDA event in French Lick is a lot of fun camping, trail rides, good times with fellow wheelers. I think you can find info about it on their site.

There is also an IFWDA ( Indiana Four Wheel Drive Ass. ) event at the same place (the Ranch)in French Lick. This event is usually in Aug. You have to be a member of IFWDA to attend. You can be join IFWDA as an individual or join a club that is a part of IFWDA. I have wheeled there and it is a lot of fun, they have trails for stock to wild. There is also a new area of state land open to wheeling near Lynville, In. know as Interlake. There are a few clubs in S. Ind., I am a member of the Boonie Riders 4x4 Club, we are a family oriented club with a variety of vehicles.

|InfernoGirl||The French Lick Jamboree is usually in October. It's on private land. I have friends who go every year. So that says something for it, if I had the cash laying around for it we'd probably do it too, but it's pretty expensive for a family of 4, especially when you include lodging.... If you can swing it, I'd recommend it.|

When is this going down? I did a google and found information on the 21st annual 2010 jamboree, which was October 6-7th and the 2011 jamboree by the same group I found isn't until October 6-8 2011.
Here's what I pulled up on the 2011 jamboree: http://jeepjamboreeusa.com/trips/iti...rench_lick.pdf
Page 5 deals with necessary gear.
If you've found a different jamboree, let us know!

French Lick Jamboree
Just wondering if anyone has done the FL Jamboree. I have an itch to try one, I have always wanted to go, but never had a jeep until now. Anyway, just wondering if a Jamboree is worth it, and if anyone has any suggestions for a first timer going to a Jamboree??? Is there anything that I must take?
For French Lick this year it looks like they run a stock, beginners trail.... sounds perfect for me, but has anyone here done it?
