You can visit www.jeepjamboreecanada.com or call them ( phone number on website). There's lots of info on the website.

This year's cost is CAN$215 plus tax / person. I've already registered a couple of weeks ago.

I will be going if I can get my Jeep ready and trail test it a week before then. Are you thinking of going? Big Jeepin' is also considering going if I go. The people I'll be going up with are leaving 2 days before cause they're trail guides. If I go, it'll be nice to have someone to drive up with. I'm also from the Vancouver area.

Sounds great! It's about time I meet some ppl from the bc4x4 board:D

I'm heading up on the 25th with one of the guys from the lionsgaters' 4x4 club. Apparently registration and vehicle inspection start on the 25th from 5pm - 8pm. Driver's meeting starts at 8:30am on the 26th.

It would be great to have a group drive up together. Let me know if you will be going up then.

There's an accomodations list you can ask them to fax to you.

I booked at the Inn at Apex Mountain. Figured a hot shower would be nice after a long day in the trails. I believe there are designated camp sites/areas.

Call them and ask :) 1-888-678-JEEP The people there are really nice and helpful.

Okay so I check out the website and decide to sign up just for kicks.

Doh! Aparently my Jeep is not equipped well enough to participate in Jeep Jamboree!

On the required equipment list are skidplates. I e-mailed the powers that be to ask if skidplates are really a requirement and tried to explain that I've been through bigger boulders than they could possibly throw at me and I've never had skidplates.

They e-mailed me back and said that a skidplate under the transfer case and the gas tank are a requirement to participate in Jeep Jamboree.

Ironic I think, that there are millions of Jeeps out there that would not be allowed to participate in an event that is promoted to be suitable for Jeeps of every varitety just because the factory didnt put a piece of tin under the gas tank and transfer case of them.

Believe me you'll apreciate that shower, and a dry place to sleep if it rains. (Exactly both last year) Not to mention not having to drive all the way back into town for a campsite at the end of a long dusty/soggy day.

See ya'll there!

Dan, what kind of Jeep do you drive? I'm guessing it's a xj or zj, cause all yjs and tjs come with factory skids for the tcase and tank.

Plus when you go up there, they don't even look under your Jeep. They're more concerned with front hooks so they can tow someone out if they get stuck.

Yep, its an XJ. Since the drivetrain is mounted much higher and flat with the bottom of the Jeep they figured we didnt really need skidplates.

Which I havent needed so far.

So where did the $125 cost come from? The website says $215

Sounds like some of you have done the jamboree before... any trails and/or trail guides you can recommend?

I'm thinking about arriving around 4pm or so. If we leave around noon, that will be fine.

However, if any of you are interested in leaving earlier - I was thinking of cutting to Princton thru the Tulameen. Just a thought for now.

Unless things have changed the "requirement" for skids is just to cover their butts.

Heck, the year I was there they let dozens of rigs in without tow hooks.

Yeah, once you get up there, they won't be turning you away. Cause you just drove a million miles to be there.:D

Trails depend on how equipped your Jeeep is, there are descriptions and ratings on all the trails at the registration.
Trail guides are all great, but you'll want to stay away from trails that Arnold aka Outkast is guiding.:D :D :D :D
