|This was our first Jeep Jamboree, in 2000, and became the yardstick to measure Arch Canyon and the Rubicon trail in 2001 against.
First, Moab is incredibly beautiful and full of outdoor activities like rafting, biking, hiking, and just plain siteseeing in my opinion hard to beat anywhere in the world.
Second, the sheer number of trails and different levels of diffuculty make it possible to select a trail perfectly suited for you. The Jeep Jamboree folks did a very good job of providing a good selection and making sure everyone was similarly capable for the trail.
Third, the guides provided by the Jeep Jamboree folks are great. Some are local characters, and most of the rest are nearly local and of course all characters. They keep the small groups together, moving, and out of trouble while providing history, stories, driving tips, and funny commentary.
If you want to go to Moab and have a fun experience without worrying about navigating a trail, getting in over your head, etc. etc. and you can't make the anual Jeep Jamboree event in Moab I'd suggest a guide. My family took two Jeeps to Moab this last June (2004) and hired Dan Mick for two days. What a great way to go. We had gone wheeling with a couple of other rigs on our way through Moab for the Arch Canyon Jamboree in 2001 and found out haveing a guide makes it so much more enjoyable. Even with GPS and John Welle's book, we didn't cover half the ground we did with a guide. Also, Dan was able to show us stuff we would have missed without him, including some fun play areas on the slickrock.
If you can only do one Jeep Jamboree, this one is it. But be warned, you'll be disapointed in every other one after this.
