Newbie Questions

My wife and I are considering coming down to this jamboree, but I've got a few questions. I've never been down to this area, so I'm curious as to which rides everyone recommends. Would like to sign up for rides with length's over 40 miles and scenic as well as some technical. We have a hauler, so do most of the rides start from Fillmore so that you can ride from camp? If so, is the KOA a good location? Thanks in advance.

You are in luck, this is a great jam to start off with Smiley  You will sign up for rides at the registration so you can ask the organizer which rides are best suited to your needs and skill level.  The KOA is a great choice as you can ride directly out from the campground, get into town and the park where the rides stage from and the meals are served at (they call it the POD located at the State house State Park).  With out knowing more about your skill level I would hesitate to recommend rides but if you review the web site for the ride descriptions you should be able to get a feel for what may interest you.    This will be my forth year at the event and I have had a great time every year.  Hope you do attend, you will love it.

Part of the rides start right from the POD (Jamboree Headquaters), some rides requieing trailering from town th the trailhead.  Ask around and you probably will be able to find a empty on a trailer for sharing the cost of fuel.  All of the rides are guided so there is not much chance of getting lost.  As mentioned by "onebottledave", check out the Jambreoo web site for a description of the rides as well as riding skill needed.  There are some ride that are not for SxS units, most welcome a mix though.

The Jambroee is like going to a family reunion that you get to pick the family, everyone has the same idea, ride OHV's and have fun inthe sun, rian and yes it even snowed one year.

We have been to several of the Jamborees and plan on going again this year

Hope to see you there!  How did we miss you Onebottledave, we will have to meet up and shake a bottle, no drink a bottle and shake a hand!!
