The night ride has people who have never had their Jeep in 4 wheel drive. Some idiot rolled on a dirt road. Another gut was drunk & rear ended another really hard & took off thru the woods to get away. Cops got him because his daughter & husband was in the Jeep behind him. They told on him. Lol.
Its usually all dirt roads, hills, & easy stuff you could do in 2nd,....... If you had 1/2 a brain. Probably 200 Jeeps.
On year there was a uber sweet creek trail. Another year we went thru a nation forest area. The groups got split up. No one knew where we were or how to get back due to no cell service. We got back to Jasper @ 1 am.
The last time we went and did the night ride we got hit in rear from a dumbass in a cj drunk  as hell of course!! Then after all that he almost slammed into the front of us on a hill climb when he lost it and had no brakes! lucky for us he turned the wheel and slammed into a tree just before hitting us, he also took off but we later found him and had the cops grab him up!!!

That sounds about right. It was on a large track of private property.
It all happened on Georgia Bounty Runners property.

I'm not sure where that is. Take 53 over 515 then make a right a few miles out?

I  don't think any of the "trails" that they take you out on for JeepFest are difficult.  But I haven't been on one in 3 years or so.

I have heard if you have slick stock tires you may slip in the grass. So yeah its pretty extreme.   //LMAO//

I went one year with only rear wheel drive. It was slick but I made it through every trail I hit.

I just got a text from a guy in line for the night ride. He's in the fifth row........... out of 15.
Its 9:30 @ night. I'm so glad I didn't go.
 At some point there needs to be a limit, I think this year is mine.
If you show up this weekend it will cost you $80. I understand its for a charity but it just seems excessive.

It is actually $85 if you didn't pre register. 

If you did pre register it was $60

Either way, no one makes you go.  If you don't think it is a reasonable price for what you get, you don't have to go.  Or you can go and enjoy the vendors and watch the folks play on the obstacle course for free...that's actually pretty cool.  At Jeep Beach Daytona you can't get in to to watch the obstacle course, see the vendors or buy raffle tickets unless you pay the event fee.

True.
I pre registered.
I was just thinking that Crawling for Reid is a much better deal.

The rain has killed my plans for off roading this weekend, so I will be hitting up the vendors area at Jeepfest tomorrow around lunch time.
