Hey Guys Just got back from the Fall Texas Spur!
 
It was a fantastic weekend.

I plan to write the full review this weekend.

But I did play with a few photos and a Pat Green Song.

Because of file size and band with issues I put it on U-Tube.:punk:

Let me know if you like it.:crash:

Here is the link: 2007 Fall Texas Spur Video

What's up Greg?!?! :punk:

whiteyj 09-20-2007 09:48 AM

Looks like a great time was had by all!

GixxerRider 09-20-2007 02:18 PM

That's just darn nice, I can't wait to meet up with some fellow Jeepers!!! Jeeptoberfest looked like a good place, hopefully I can make it...

jeeptales 09-20-2007 10:16 PM

I've missed you guys too!
 
Thanks!!!

I wish I could load it on the Forum in high res but it is a darn big file.

I'll have all the photos on the site in the next day or so.

My new Gig at the Dodge store keeps my real busy so I can't spend any time on the forums at work. :crash:

But if I do a good enough job over the next few months I'll start having more time to play... I only made 6 wheeling trips so far this year...

My plan is to Give Pat Green a disc at the show tomorrow night.

Now who is going to a Llano Jeep Jamboree next year.

One in March and one in September!

Well if I know a Jeeper who got a bunch of FREE BEER I'd camp close to him too.

Wait till you see my new custome overhed console on my JK.

A guy I met @ the Spring Texas Spur just put it in my Jeep!


My New Scrockworks front bumper is on now with a Warn 9.5Ti and the Rear Bumper goes on next month. Now I will have a place to mount my Hi-Lift!

Its a good thing too cuz I alredy ripped off three OEM rear bumpers!

Sounds like you're making some progress with that baby. I can't wait to see it! I'll definatly make the spring Tx Spur and I'll try to work in the fall. It all depends on the dates.

jjseel 09-21-2007 07:17 PM

Great video! I'm a little computer inpaired, trying to zip up some pics for you. BTW, it was great to meet you, just wish you could have come earlier, and enjoyed yourself some more (you looked like you needed 6 more arms!) All weekend I was looking for the big RV and the Lone Star! :p My Dad wasn't all that excited to go, but on the last day he was talking to folks and saying "see ya next year, this was awesome", so i think he had a good time, too! :D

A few thoughts from the event
 
It’s true; Two Jeep Jamborees are better than one!

Ever since I hung up the phone with Tony Winkler (The South Texas JJUSA coordinator) back in mid January of 2007 I’ve been anxiously waiting the opportunity to get back to the Inks Ranch for a second South Texas Jeep Jamboree in the same season, never mind; we still had not had the spring event yet. It was finally going to happen; a second South Texas Jeep Jamboree in the same season something I’ve been secretly…Okay; maybe not so secretly, praying for; “Two Area Jeep Jamboree” for the past ten or so years.

I’m not sure if any of you any of you remember or not… Back on December 1st of 2006 when the Jeep Jamboree tickets went on sale for the 2007 Jeep Jamboree season we all knew the March Texas Spur Jeep Jamboree hosted by the Inks Ranch located just outside the quiet Hill Country Hamlet of Llano would be a sell out, none of us knew just how fast it would happen.

The Texas Spur is a relatively new Jeep Jamboree when you compare it to its predecessors like the famed Rubicon Trail and 19th Annual Palo Duro Jeep Jamborees or 20 consecutive years in Ouray Colorado. In fact, the 2007 Spring Texas Spur would only be in its third year. The 06 Texas Spur held an event record for selling out in one month and one day after its premier in 2005. Lots of us wondered if 2007 would sell at a more feverish pace then the previous years. All of us were utterly amazed when on the morning of December 6th the JJUSA offices called Tony and I to let us know the event was already “SOLD OUT” only six days after the $265.00 per person tickets had gone on sale.

Don’t get me wrong the Texas Spur is a wonderful event; but for eleven years prior to the Jeep Jamboree moving to Llano, it had also had also enjoyed popular success while hosted at the YO Ranch in Mountain Home, Texas. The two Ranches are dramatically different in topography, size amenities and overall facilities. Both ranches are draped in nearly two centuries of rich Texas History and are both family owned and operated. I’ve personally enjoyed amazing weekends of wheeling at both facilities for years.

So what is it that has added to the unprecedented success JJUSA has enjoyed since it moved the event to Llano? Perhaps it’s the incredible granite domes that pepper the ranch adding some of the most challenging obstacles on the Jeep Jamboree USA 36 event schedule. Part of the credit might be the beautiful riverbed, which bisects the property and offers a unique mix of water crossings, intricate low-lying terrain and breathtaking variety of native Texas flora framed in pink stone draws.

Or, maybe it has something to do with the “Loving” Texas Hospitality offered not only by the Inks Ranch family members who ride the trails with us every year. Roy Inks joined us this year once again despite the near fatal neck injury he suffered between the two Jeep Jamboree from a fall (Now that is Cowboy-ed up). Not to be forgotten, the owners and staff from base camp at the Oxford Ranch Campground just up the highway. Who allow us to camp on their property keep us fed and even built us a shower house so we can knock the dust off after a great day on the trails.

Part of the successes from this event has to be credited to the diehard Jeep Owners and their family who have not missed this event in the three years we have been going out to the Inks Ranch. Many of them return each year with new friends and family members in tow added to their contingency so that they can share the experience with others. Despite the 20,000 plus photos of the Texas Spur hosted on JeepTales.com you just can’t imagine what it is like without going there for yourself!

A major ingredient in the receipt for successes for the Texas Spur has enjoyed has go to the Trail Guides from San Antonio Jeep Exclusive. (The area Jeep Club) who was founded initially for the sole purpose of developing an organized club to help guide The South Texas Jeep Jamboree. Their knowledge of the trails and intimate understanding of the Jeep’s capability and limit’s of every drivers skills allows event attendees to get the maximum bang for their buck on each and every trail. When that occasional trail mishap occurs the S.A.J.E. guides will spring into action without ever being asked to help; making quick trail repairs or even rendering first aid for cactus thorns, bee stings, and that regularly scraped knee.

Lastly; we certainly can’t forget organizers like, Mark A. Smith the Father of Jeep Jamboree who over 50 years ago had the insight to create such an unusual social phenomenon, Man + Jeep vs. Nature. There is a dedicated team at the JJUSA office staff in Georgetown California who works behind the scene to make this magical weekend happen. The credit for the last key components has to be the faces of the South Texas Jeep Jamboree Tony & Nancy Winkler who brought the Jeep Jamboree to South Texas over a decade ago and selflessly do everything it takes to pull it off each and every year and now in 2007 and again in 2008 they are going to get to do it twice! Thank you, Tony and Nancy!

I'm so glad the two of you had a good time.

jeeptales 09-26-2007 10:30 PM

We got the photos up today
 


It was a darn good time I hope a few of you can make it out next Spring or Fall.

Tickets will go on sale 12/1/2007 The one in March sold out last year in six days

From the feedback I got @ the Fall run I bet that one sells out fast too!

Hey Greg, what happened with the Y.O. and JJUSA?

jeeptales 10-10-2007 07:14 AM

I've heard both sides, I don't know if it could be called much more than a clash of goals. I think more than anything things were said by both sides that just could not be taken back. I'd love to see them kiss and make up and add a third South Texas Jeep Jamboree two in Llano on one at the YO.... But I think it is just a dream.:(
