June 3rd and 4th 2016 was the 2nd annual Jeep Jamboree in Tillamook Oregon and Nitro Gear & Axle took part in the event as a sponsor as well as attending and doing some offroading. It was such a great time and we wanted to share some of the photos and tell everyone a bit about the experience.
When you sign up for a Jeep Jamboree you quickly learn that this organization has a plan and knows exactly how to make sure you have a good time no matter if you have a bone stock Jeep or a heavily modified rig. Starting with a quick tech inspection they confirm you have the prescribed safety equipment, appropriate tow points and your rig is in shape to handle the event. It’s really a painless process that helps ensure fewer problems once you get on the trail and gives some assurance that the rigs around you are sound and trail worthy.
The trails are rated and led by skilled guides and timed repeatably before the Jamboree to make sure everyone makes it back for dinner at night, has fun and there is enough time for breaks and lunch stops. Speaking of food, meals are included. A fresh hot breakfast in the morning, brown bag lunch for the trail and excellent dinner are provided each day taking a lot of planning from the equation and making this an ideal family event.
The Tillamook event is only in it’s second year and takes advantage of the “Brown’s Camp” ORV area in the coastal mountains of NW Oregon. Lush, mossy and often wet terrain is the norm here with some great hill climbs and rock sections available depending on the trails you choose. The town of Tillamook is most famous for their cheese and dairy products and we highly recommended you visit the Tillamook Cheese factory for a look at how it’s made and some really tasty ice cream. Finally the Pacific Ocean is only about 30 minutes west and organized events allow you to legally drive your Jeep on the beach if you desire.
We plan to attend the next Jamboree in our area in a few weeks over in Wallace Idaho, but also expect a return trip to Oregon next year. We’d highly recommend you consider joining us if some organized West Coast Jeeping sounds like a good time to you as well!
