Jeep Jamboree USA 2010 Schedule Announced

  
  
  
  

JeepJam announced their 2010 Jamboree schedule yesterday and true to form, I want to go to all of them!

You can find the entire Jeep Jamboree 2010 Schedule Here.

This year, our closest Jamboree is up in Bethel, Maine, a beautiful location, especially in the fall. Last month, Norman, the President of AllthingsJeep.com and Mike, in Customer Service went up to that event. There were some pretty heavy downpours on the 2nd day and the Jeep came home muddier than I've ever seen it. ('83 CJ8) In the New England woods, the trail is narrow, the rocks are moss-covered and the rain makes everything slippery. So it's quite a wheelin' adventure.

We know Jeep Jamborees are a luxury expense. Not a necessity ('though some may argue) and with finances tight, the folks over there at JJUSA have come up with some "family plans" that help make these adventures more affordable. Besides, family time together is a great thing (just ask my teenage daughter.) Kidding aside, she loved it when we did a Jamboree last summer.

Excepted from their website:

"In an effort to make Jeep Jamborees more affordable for the 2010 season, we're offering a Family Plan for both Classic and Just Trails Jamborees. The price per vehicle for Classic events is $600, while Just Trails Jamborees are only $450. The fine print: Two adults and two or three children (12 and under) are required per vehicle.

Another opportunity for Jeep fanatics on a budget is the Trails Only option, which is offered to a limited number of registrants (first come, first served) at each Jeep Jamboree USA event (due to lack of facilities this offer does not apply to the Palo Duro or Rubicon Trail Jeep Jamboree events). Trails Only participants enjoy all of the usual Jamboree amenities (including the Saturday evening prize drawing) but provide all their own meals.

In addition, active members of the Armed Forces will receive a 15 percent discount on all Jamborees. The Buy 3 Get 1 FREE promotion will be continued in 2010, with only adult passengers eligible for this offer. And we're bringing back the dash plaques! Each registered Jeep vehicle will again include a dash plaque.

Remember December 1st is the opening registration date for the 2010 season. We look forward to seeing you on the trail."

I live I ride I am Jeep Tagline

  
  
  
  

So, whatcha think? Do you like Chrysler's new tagline for Jeep?

I Live. I Ride. I Am. Jeep. I Live I Ride I Am Jeep

How about their new commercials. If you haven't see it, you can catch one here. This one is called "Clocks" 

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PIEBVDCNK28

I don't like it. Not even a little bit. (says Jean, from www.AllThingsJeep.com.) Here's my list of complaints.

1. I DO live, so they got me there, but I don't understand the relevance.

2. I DON'T ride. I DRIVE. I do ride a lot of things - horses, bicycles, amusement park rides. But my Jeep's not one of them. And if I'm riding in a Jeep, then I'm the passenger, and what fun is that?

3. I AM? Huh? What am I? A Jeep?

This whole ad compaign reminds me of those old Ad-Libs (remember those?) and makes we want to fill in the blanks. "I LIVE at 2 Shaker Road in Shirley. I RIDE my bike to work sometimes. I AM a mom, photographer, Jeep owner.

I know these type of ads are about branding, and evoking a feeling in us about the Jeep brand. (Remember, your brand isn't what You think about your company, it's about what your Customers think of your company) But this doesn't really evoke positive feelings about Jeep. It evokes feelings like I should be working but instead I'm watching the clock to when work is over and then I can go drive (not ride) my Jeep.  Hey, maybe that's the point?

So what do you think? What tagline would you create for Jeep if Chrsyler was giving you hundreds of thousands of dollars to create a tagline and ad campaign for them? Post your ideas here. I'll give a set of 10 Jeep decals (your choice) to the person whose idea I like best. (I'll give you until Nov 16th to post.) And hey, maybe Chrsyler will read this and hire you to be their next marketing genius!

If you want to read the whole story behind this branding campaign and what the campaign will look like over the next year, check out the details here. It's the "Official" document and it's pretty interesting.

The Official Guide to the Jeep Wave

  
  
  
  

The topic of the Jeep Wave continues to entice hot debate among Jeep owners old and new and it's a debate that will never go away. Should you wave to the new Jeep JKs or not. Can you wave to build XJs? But on top of that, I've always wondered, "who waves first?" Who starts it? I have now discovered my answers in the definitive guide to respect for your Jeep Elders.

Now you can measure your own Jeep's place in the overall Jeep hierachy of waving. To see where you rate, keep reading...

Here's the starting point:

Definition:

The Jeep Wave: An honor bestowed upon those drivers with the superior intelligence, taste, class, and discomfort tolerance to own the ultimate vehicle - the Jeep. Generally consists of vigorous side-to-side motion of one or both hands, but may be modified to suit circumstances and locally accepted etiquette. Examples of commonly accepted modifications:

  • Top off: One handed wave above windshield or outside body tub
  • Top off during blizzard: Shiver and nod, hands may remain frozen to steering wheel
  • Southern/rural locations: Raise fingers from steering wheel, nod

In keeping with this cardinal rule of Jeeping, categories have been established to account for each part of the equation.

These categories are:

  • The Jeep Waving Hierarchy: Based on the vehicle itself. Takes into account the nostalgia factor, the discomfort tolerance quotient, and the amount of owner dedication required to maintain the steed.
  • The Modifying Sub-categories: Based on what you do with your Jeep.
  • Equipment Adjustments: What you build.

General Rules:

1. All Jeepers are responsible for upholding the tradition of the Wave. Upon contact with a higher scoring Jeep, a Jeeper is required to initiate the Wave, and continue the Wave until:

  1. The Wave is returned
  2. The Wave is blatantly disregarded
  3. The higher scoring vehicle has passed by and is out of sight

2. All Jeepers are required to return the Wave, unless the initiating vehicle is clearly has a negative (below 0) score.

3. All Jeepers are encouraged, but not required, to return the Wave to negative balance vehicles, and take any opportunity presented to guide and mentor them about their responsibilities to their Jeeps in the hopes that they can correct the error of their ways.

4. When unsure of status or wave requirements of a particular encounter or unable to completely assess the other Jeep's score quickly enough to ensure that the proper Jeep Wave Etiquette rules are followed, immediately initiate wave.

"When in doubt, WHIP IT OUT!"

This was reprinted in part from the http://www.jeeptalk.org/ website.

And then post your score below. Can't wait to see who I should be bowing down to (and waving!)

New Bad boy Jeep R/C Rockcrawer action

  
  
  
  

We've got the new Crawler King Rockcrawler with a Jeep Wrangler Rubicon body, by HPI Racing in stock at http://www.allthingsjeep.com/ and let me tell you, the avid off-road enthusiasts in this office are tripping over each other trying to get their hands on our demo model. This is a sweet rig with amazing crawling ability. Based on the video I'm posting below (I'll admit, we haven't yet tested it out as I write this), this R/C Rockcrawler can go anywhere! In fact, proportionately, I bet it outcrawls most of the built Jeeps out there. And, if not, I'd like to hear from you! Finding a  Jeep Wrangler Rubicon Crawler King under the Christmas tree this holiday season would make any Jeep owner a happy camper.

Jeep Wrangler JK Owners 2010 Calendar

  
  
  
  

Love 'em or hate 'em, the new Jeep Wrangler JK models launched in 2007 are destined to stick around a while. The 4 door Jeep Wrangler Unlimiteds have reached a whole new audience and it's an enthusiast group. For many, it's their first Jeep, and their excitement is contagious. And that's despite the fact that many don't even know what "JK" means.

So hey Jeep Wrangler JK owner, this calendar is for you! We call it the 2010 Jeep Wrangler JK Calendar because there's 10 months full of JKs. The scenic monthly pictures are mostly monopolized by a cherry red Jeep Wrangler Rubicon 2 door. The other months feature a Jeep Wrangler Unlimited JK 4 door in Rescue Green (that's my current daily driver). And the calendar tosses a photographic bone to a current Jeep Liberty, Grand Cherokee and Commander. But basically Jeep Wrangler JKs rule in this 2010 Jeep (Wrangler JK) calendar.

Jeep Wrangler JK 2010 Calendar is now in stock at www.allthingsjeep.com.

I Survived Cash for Clunkers!

  
  
  
  

Two weeks ago we got an email:

"Hello ALL Things Jeep!

I am the proud owner of a 14 year old ZJ.  He is clearly eligible for
turn-in under Cash for Clunkers, and would be worth an extra $2500-$3000 to me if I turned him in. But I would never DREAM of allowing him to meet that fate!!  I know there are other Jeepers out there just like me who are keeping their Jeeps because of the emotional attachment that others "don't understand".  Can you think of a neat bumper sticker that explains that?  "I survived Cash for Clunkers" comes to mind, but it seems like it would be
cool to come up with something more Jeep specific.  Maybe, "I survived Cash for Clunkers, Obama wouldn't understand." With a Jeep grill!  You get the idea.  I hope you can figure something out and it turns into a best seller for you! - Shannon"

Shannon, we thought this was a brilliant idea. And here it is:

I survive Cash for Clunkers Decal 

I Survived Cash for Clunkers Decal. This decal is available exclusively at www.allthingsjeep.com. It's made for all those proud, dedicated Jeep owners out there that said "No Way!"

This 3" x 5" sticker will look great on the side of your Jeep, right above that rusty wheel well. Or on the rear windshield, worn with pride. In any case, Thanks Shannon, for a great idea. Your freebies are on their way.

Extrem Events Paris-New York Transcontinental Expedition

  
  
  
  

Here's some exciting news from our friends at JPFREEK Adventure Magazine. It will also make you drool with jealousy, wondering how YOU can finagle your way aboard one of the Jeeps.

---------- *FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE* ----------

JPFreek Adventure Magazine Joins Forces With Extrem Events for Paris-New York Transcontinental Expedition

JPFreek Becomes Exclusive North American Partner for World's Most Challenging Expedition Across Bering Strait

Houston, TX - 8/26/2009 - JPFreek Adventure Magazine today announced a partnership with Extrem Events, a German expedition company, to become the exclusive North American media partner for Mattias Jeschke and his Transcontinental Expedition team. The partnership will provide Extrem Events a new and exciting digital medium to publicize its much-anticipated Transcontinental expedition, whose purpose is to promote CO2 neutrality and alternative energies. Extrem Events will also be working with JPFreek to expand its position within the North American Jeep community and to expand its Initiative Partner 15000 project to further build its sponsor base for the expedition.

The team, which earlier this year commenced a yearlong expedition that began in Paris and traveled all the way to Russia through Mongolia, is soon preparing the second leg of its journey. The journey will be climaxed by affixing a pontoon-style attachment to the Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Rubicon vehicles used for the expedition to cross the Bering Strait. Once in Alaska, the team will be met by a third Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Rubicon piloted by JPFreek Adventure Magazine editor Frank Ledwell, and will complete the remaining journey from the beginning point of the Pan-American highway, south through Alaska, and then across Canada into the United States to New York City. [hope they stop at the offices of All Things Jeep!]

Frank Ledwell said of the expedition and partnership, "Overlanding and Expedition-style travel is one of the fastest growing segments in the off-highway industry. The opportunity to join an experienced adventurer like Mattias Jeschke is not only an exciting prospect but also one that we are excited to share with the entire Jeep and off-highway community."

The partnership is effective immediately and additional details about the partnership and community involvement will be announced in the near future.

About Extrem Events
Extrem Events was founded in 2002 by Mattias Jeschke, an accomplished adventurer from Germany whose travels have included a world-record setting expedition by altitude with a team of Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Rubicon vehicles in the Ojos del Salado in Chile. Extrem Events' focus is on successfully completing expedition-style journeys while also enhancing awareness for important social issues throughout the world.
