Pacific Northwest 4 Wheel Drive Association's 2011 Trail Jamboree - Day 1 of 5
Report and photos by Clay Graham / Eastern Washington Adventures

This year I was invited to the Pacific Northwest 4 Wheel Drive Association Trail Jam to take pictures of the annual event.
I showed up on the afternoon of Wednesday July 6th for the Trail Jam check-in. They checked my name at the entrance of Jim Sprick Park and then I made my way through the RV city to find a place to park to camp for the rest of the week. Once camp was set up I walked over and checked in at the information booth where they gave me a packet. The packet had information about the events, the rules, some free stuff and two tickets.

One of the two free tickets was for the daily sponsor raffle and the other was for the door prize drawing on Saturday. They had two other raffles where tickets were $1.00 each. One was a 50/50 raffle. With one of these tickets you could win 50% of the proceeds and the remaining 50% the Trail Jamboree. The other was a Prize Raffle which offered more chances to win variety of prizes. The Proceeds went to the PNW Trail Maintenance Fund.

The next step after check in was to get your trail rig safety inspection. I did not bring a rig since I thought I would get better pictures as a passenger but waked over to check the inspection point anyways to see what it was about. The club doing the safety inspections had a lot of work hours. Wednesday from 10 AM - 8 PM then 9 PM -10 PM, Thursday 5:30 AM - 7:30 AM then 4 PM - 8 PM and Friday 5:30 AM - 7:30 AM.

I found a level place for the trailer so I would not have to sleep up hill.

AEV 101 Sponsored by Chris Wood is a great class for the driver who just bought a rig or is just beginning to wheel.
The run teaches a driver how to get through tough spots, emergency situations, navigate terrain and more.
