28th Drummond Island Jeep Jamboree USA - 2021


Day 1 - We (My Wife Heather and I) drove as far north as possible without being in Canada, boarded a ferry with numerous other excited Jeepers and headed to sign in at the event and get tech inspections/trail groups taken care of. We were met with the most enthusiastic group of event hosts that I have ever experienced. They were having fun, and that carried over into the process, making it as easy as possible to check in all those Jeeps and personalities. Once everyone was all checked in, we headed back to the hotel and anxiously awaited the following morning.


Day 2 – Landing on the island, the ferry gates couldn’t drop quickly enough for us to get the day started. We were provided breakfast and a box lunch at the drivers meeting. We all headed for the trails shortly after, with our group adventuring through the numerous ORV trails, that lead through huge marsh areas, rock, dirt, sand, beach, and even marble head, the highest point (about 90 feet of cliff face)  on the island. The terrain was constantly changing, and pushing out onto the shoreline, just for the forest to swallow you back up around the next turn. Our group was about 17 Jeeps, including the guides. We even witnessed a bald eagle flying over, surely giving his approval to our Jeeps, when we were at Marble Head. Day 2 closed with a great diner and stories shared of the days adventures.


Day 3 – Today was the best day of wheeling in my opinion. We headed to Turtle Ridge Off Road Park, where the terrain was just as varying as the previous day, but the obstacles provided numerous lines to make it as hard as you would like. The soft dirt gives way under your tires and the rocks move constantly, making this a pretty challenging day. There was some carnage as well for a JLU and a JKU, one grenading a rear diff, and the other grenading an front axle. He did such  a good job, that the impact of the axle u joint exploding, blew both upper and lower ball joints on the passenger side completely out of the C in the housing. After “trail fixing” our wounds, we were able to limp out and make it back to camp, where everyone enjoyed the dinner, raffle, and event recap. Heather and I headed for home, having made some new friends, some great memories, and looking forward to next year’s event.
