Toyota Jamboree 2019

Untitled

Toyota Jamboree is a 4 day event that involves Toyota 4x4s, vendors, and off road trails, with competition events. Durning the multi day event, you can get a hotel nearby or go camping at the off road park itself. I would recommend the camping because nothing beats wheeling and camping with your friends.

Untitled This was my wife and I first time at Toyota Jamboree but we have gone off roading before in past. The one thing we never did was primitive camping, and which is basically camping without restrooms or running water on site. For me I didn’t mind, but I know with wifey it was a big thing. I understand that, and what I have found out is if you make camping more luxurious or more comfortable for your significant other, then they will want to go on more trips with you.

Lambo and wifey enjoying the time spent. Getting away from the city life is nice. I wouldn’t sell my house in the city for the suburb life, but to live in the country, I maybe would.

Airing down for the off road trails. The forecast called for rain and mud. I was excited for that!

Riding the trails with the homies added a better sense of security and confidence. When we go off roading alone in the trails sometimes you get nervous if you are going to get stuck or if any help will come in such a remote place. I do like the privacy but with friends it just makes it more fun.

The Land Cruiser was pretty clean at this point. But by end of the weekend it was a different story.

The level 2 trails that is easy in on the dry is a different animal when rain comes into factor. This FJ got it wrong, and this was triple locked and which too.

Untitled We made it out of he trail fine, it all about the lines you take really. Untitled

Untitled Then it started to rain more….. Felt like I was at a scene from Jarassic Park. Glad I was out with my friends, because I know I would have been stressing if I was by myself. Untitled

Flexing. The articulation on solid front axles are much better then independent suspension. The 80 series look soo good.

Untitled Finally back at camp. It did rain more but I was the fire master and no camp is complete without a camp fire. Untitled

Untitled The next day as more fun wheeling and exploring the trails. Lambo up and early. Untitled

Our friends brought a lot of food too. This wasn’t the ham and cheese sandwich either. We were cooking in luxury.

We slept in the Land Cruiser and was pretty comfy. Thankfully it was a cold night so it wasn’t stuffy at all.

The base camp.

Untitled I did get stuck once, but thats why you go with your friends!!! Untitled

Looks good though. Har Ley help me out get unstuck, such a good friend. Eventually, I did have to get pulled out from Mike’s GX470. I did have my maxtrax but if you have another vehicle its just faster to use the recovery straps instead.

Untitled Back at camp, this time we had pizza. Untitled

The next day we were still eating good.
