|03-20-2007 11:35 AM|
|Scout||Yeah I did. I went cheap and went to Academy and bought a 16x8 Coleman tent. It should work fine for the Jamborees. After reading the weather report I hope it's waterproof!!!|
|03-20-2007 11:13 AM|
Did you ever find your new tent?
Here is what my 10x20 Three room looks like.
I was at Acadamy yeterday and almost bought a 13x23 with three rooms and a porch. Each of the rooms has a flippin' storage area!
I may get one before the summer is here.

|03-19-2007 12:26 PM|
Look for me!
You can roll in whenever you like.
My plan is to tent camp in my three room tent wiht Victor from DC.
I was thinking you, me & Scout ands a few of my other buddies would hook up close to eachother.
Do you have my cell #? 210.383.4734
You can come in when ever you like.
|03-19-2007 12:10 AM|

This past week's Trail Report
I just got this from Tony:
Well we had our last visit to Ink's prior to the Jamboree. It's the most water I've seen on the ranch including the first year we ran. We posted trailhead signs on all the trails including a couple of Spotter signs at the locations we had rollovers last year. We ran Roy's Revenge, the mud hole Pety and Roy pointed out last week and Waterfall Creek. The entry is covered in water and at the first rock ledge the water was probably 4 feet deep. We ran it both ways and other than Geoff taking a little time the first time everyone made it through without too much trouble.
For those that marked the extension to the right of the entry to Moab we had to make an adjustment. One of your flags marking the trail was about ten feet over a new pond that wasn't there the last time we went up. We extended the trail a little and found a different way out. No one would volunteer to find out how deep the pond was.
For planning purposes the weather forecast improved today. The paper said we had a chance of thunderstorms rather than thunderstorms for Wed- Sat. My guess is we may well have a very wet weekend. I'm digging out my rain gear and I would suggest everyone come prepared. I do have a rain schedule that will give us at least somewhat of a plan. Herman has a couple of large piles of brush and said we could have bonfires of them all. Hopefully the rain won't put them out.
Nancy and I plan on going up Wed. The tent is scheduled to be put up then. IF anyone has any questions give me a call. I'll send out an email if anything changes and if I get any more info. See you all next week.

I hope the shirts are a hit.
I was asking the Board of officers @ S.A.J.E. if I could offer them on the JeepTales.com website. this week.
I have not heard back from them yet.

|03-15-2007 12:47 PM|
It's almost time to hit the road!
The Spring Texas Spur Jeep Jmaboree in Llano is now only 168 hours away!
This time next week I should be pulling into the Oxford Ranch Campground
and setting up my tent for three days of wheeling!
I am so pumped about this trip I'm not sure if I'm going to be able to sleep this week!
The Fall Texas Spur JJUSA is only Five Months and Three Weeks away;
there are still a few spots for that one open for the fall run.
|02-28-2007 11:07 AM|
I hope we cross paths sometime soon.
Beer on Me!

|bluvikng||Will do, jeeptales, and thanks for your answers. I have listened to your podcasts, and have found them very interesting. I truly believe that some people are more comfortable in large gatherings, than striking out alone, with just a couple of close wheeling friends. But it is all good, don't get me wrong. Whatever gets these great people out on the trails, is reason, enough. I think I just answered my own question. This place is great, and so is the promotion you are doing, Jeeptales. Keep up the great work, and keep on, wheeling, and doing your JJUSA thing. It is a great way, to meet a lot of folks, and the best part of it is, your in the midst of it all. I really look forward to meeting up with you some day.|
|02-27-2007 09:40 PM|
I like smaller events too.
I run all over the state events that have almost 200 rigs and club runs with 20 or 30 folks spred over a dozen Jeeps.
All of them are a good time.
But there is something magical about the JJUSA events.
It might be the broad socio-economic gathering with young and older; wealthy and just getting by well educated folks and guys/gals who make thier living with their hands.
The only common element is that they all own Jeeps and they like getting to drive them.
I'm not sure what causes it but listen to a few of the PODCAST, after you get some sleep.
|02-27-2007 09:29 PM|
|bluvikng||I really do appreciate both of your answers. I just want to use Ouray, Co. as an examle. All of the trails are open for public use. I spend quite a bit in fuel, just pulling my 5th wheel, and Jeep, up there. I pay for gas, everyday, a campsite, everyday, and it is in the thousands, when I have spent a week, up there. This is of course, including meals, and what not. I just can't justify, spending another $250 just to be a part of JJUSA. I know my way around there, and like to find the most challenging obstacles, available. I guess I am just trying to understand, why a person needs a organized event, just to do things, that are normally available, to the average person, at any given time. Now the trails you speak of, on private land, I can understand that that is the only way your going to wheel there. On the other hand, Llano is not much different than, Katemcy Rocks, and all I have to do, is pay the entry fee, to wheel there. I guess what you are trying to say, is that it is a comfort zone. And purhaps that makes sence, to the less adventures. I don't know, purhaps I just need some sleep....lol.|
|02-27-2007 09:03 PM|
|Scout||Well to explain a little bit of what you're asking Blu. All meals are provided, you're in a fairly safe enviroment away from most of the big ego's you'll find in some club runs and you get to wheel on PRIVATE property that isn't available to just anyone. Both of the jamborees I'm attending this year take place on private ranches and the land owners allow JJUSA to use the property for the jamborees. I'm sure they feel a bit safer knowing that a company with the reputation of JJUSA is organizing the event.|
