It was well known on the trail....the license plate was 1BAD44...she was silver blue, with pin stripping, lots of chrome and said High O Silver on the hood. As a kid...I wanted one just like it....I came close mechanically...but no paint, no pin stripping, no chrome.
YA dads jeep was awsome for its build for those days.. I really miss the jeep and goin on the runs back then..

Great pictures Brandon. Drinking beer and standing in the back, seeing Wentworth standing, driving through Buck, the car wash and taking a stockish CJ5 through the "Little Sluice"- check- I'm glad to say I got to do them all back in the day.

I can't wait for this year and the return of the Flat Fenders, if you've got one get it ready.
Mine is a new to me '46, barn find, stored since the '80s. It's been on the Jamboree 26 times but never with me.

I was planning on attending, but they require at least two people in each vehicle, no exceptions, and I ride solo. I even offered to pay for two people, so they still get their money, but they still won't allow me to ride solo. So no-go for me.

Here's a quote from the email I got from them:

Having a passenger (or how we say co-pilot) in the vehicle helps the driver - the Rubicon Trail is rated a 10 it is one of the most hardest trails in California. We have a lot of people that attend our trip and having an extra pair of eyes always helps.

With having a passenger if something were to happen to the driver you have someone else to help you get your vehicle out.

And last but not least we make a profit - we have tried not to raise our prices for 3 years now and with price increasing all around us we do the best we can.
The part about profit might not sound so good on the receiving end, but it does make sense, and at least they're honest about it. But even though I told them I'd pay for two people, they still wouldn't let me ride solo.

I don't know about the other reasons.

"With having a passenger if something were to happen to the driver you have someone else to help you get your vehicle out."

I guess I can see the sense in this. With that said it is nice to see the honesty about profit, they are running a business after all. I do understand you offered to pay for two. Seems like they have a policy that is working for them and they are sticking with it. I can't really fault them for that.

Remember, there is a ton of good people out there that I'm sure would love to go with you especially if you are footing the bill

There's a reason you don't have any friends.

I know that this is going to stir the pot, but maybe it is a way of keeping buggies out.

they admit profit is a motive and I have no issue with that, but if one is willing to pay for two seats but only a single person attends, then they are making a greater profit in the form of one less person to feed/drink/accommodate. If ur injured, then yeah, good to have a spare driver but if the 2ed passenger is ur 8 y/o son, not much help. Rules are rules, so we live with it i guess. I'd sure like to go, but we find going on non event dates = more peace and quiet and less traffic.

Coming from Reno is also a bummer since we have to goto g-town. Be nice to just join the line at WWS or Loon. Want to avoid a long loop just to turn around and head back.

The youngest allowed is 14yrs old for the jeepers jamboree. I dont know that my 14 year old could wheel my jeep out of there either. But he can drive it out of the way. It will be our first time and my son cant wait! Paid my $800 yesterday on line... OUCH!!

And if you add up what it costs to get three great meals a day, the best camp sites around, a massive crew rolling rocks for you keep everyone cruzing through the whole trail,live entertainment at night and all the other stuff that goes on it's a great deal.
Just remember, be kind to the bald Asian man who will be camped out next to the bar! Lol. :-)

Anyone know why the minimum age for the Jeepers Jamboree is 14 while the minimum for the Jeep Jamboree is 10? What is it about a Jeep that allows younger passengers than any other vehicle?

The Jeepers Jamboree tends to be a little more crazy from my experience. I talked the the office ladies on the 2010 Jeep Jambo and they said there was some consideration of raising the age even higher. I'm glad they did'nt so I can take my son this year. Are you going Gil?

Bronken is right, it isn't the jeeping, it's the adult oriented nature (party) of the activities in the Springs on the big trip that keeps the age at 14. They just lowered the age for the little trip a year or two ago, it used to be 14 also.

I have been planning on going to the Rubicon for the 1st time this summer and the Jeepers Jamboree looks like a pretty good way to learn the area and meet some people. Is everyone here signed up for the 4-5 day event?
