BBS Jamboree suggestions

<font color=purple>If I can step in & make a suggestion, I think the idea is great. And the idea of creating "zones" sounds nice also. But, I think what you all need is for volunteers to step forward, offer to "coordinate" for a specific place to wheel. Give tips as to the terrain you'll be traveling (stock on 30's no problem, or locked & 38's ain't enough!), pick a meeting place, & give some tips on local lodging for those coming from out of the area.

You might end up with more than one place within a specific "zone". If so, that's fine if say one place is suitable for stock Jeeps, & the other spot is more hardcore. If they're both close & both similar in terrain, perhaps one person can step aside for now & host the next time.

Unfortunately, my Jeep is in pieces, and my mud racer isn't suitable for trails. So, I can't really host a trail ride. I CAN offer to provide some fun though. Top Mud Challenge IV is set for 06/23/2001 at the Montgomery County Fairgrounds in Montgomery City, Missouri. Gonna have 11 classes of mud racing, a monster ride truck, a 4x4-only Show N Shine, manufacturers' midway, and car crushing exhibitions by Bigfoot, Bearfoot, and Wild Hair. I'm in charge of the mud racing, so I can get any details any of you would need for that - a stock 4.0 YJ even holds one of my class records [img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/wink.gif[/img]. And if all you want to do is come down to meet with some fellow BBS members & watch, that's fine also. You can always try to coordinate a trail ride Labor Day Weekend [img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/smile.gif[/img].</font color=purple>

Re: BBS Jamboree suggestions

OK I'll step forward and offer to "help" organize one. I plan on going to Moab the weekend after the Jeep safari so if any one else wants to join in let me know. I only know a couple of trails that I would be willing to lead myself; Poison Spider-Golden Spike-Gold Bar Rim, which is one long trail, Or Moab Rim. I know the locations of many others but don't know them well enough to try leading one. Moab is good for stock to heavily modified vehicles. There are some knew extreme trails for the hardcore, I just don't know their location. One last thing, I thought that the Jeep safari always ended on Easter Sunday? Yet in an earlier post some one gave some different dates for it. What are the dates this year?

Well, I just got to work this morning and checked on the schedule for that time period. I won't be able to go the weekenend of april 21-22. Maybe the weekend after that or the first weekend of May. At this point either looks good,perhaps the first weekend of May. You don't want to go to much later than that ot it is too hot. Let me know if anyone is still interested.
