I thought I would post a link to the photos from my recent trip to the pine barrens with the Jeep Jamboree. Most of the pictures are of other jeeps but they are all of the trails I was on as well. As you can see some of the mud holes were pretty deep but I made it through fine and did not get stuck once http://s326.photobucket.com/albums/k401/adamag25/ *added 3 new pics on 7/18/08*

I was the only XK on this jamboree for the past 2 years. Its great to get out there and show everyone with a rubicon that I can follow right behind them and they don't need to worry about getting their tow strap dirty. Everyone on the jamboree starts out with very low expectations for the XK, they say "I can't believe your going to get that dirty". By the end of the jamboree they realize it doesn't say JEEP on it just for looks. I recommed anyone who can to take part in the Jeep Jamboree USA program, its alot of fun and bringing an XK makes you a favorite with the group.

Looks like there was a pretty good turnout. I was going to attend the one in Va this year back in March, but it was the weekend of my wife's birthday. Before that, I hadn't been home for her birthday for the past two years, so this year she was making sure that I was here. Will definitely try to make it next year. Good to see XKs getting dirty and we are always surprising people with it's capabilities. Nice pics!!!

ya they arent there anymore they are there but they are not working coal mines now. Atleast i dont think so. There was tons of amazing scenary. And from what it looked like tons of trails. There was still a few coal mine shafts standing and everything. It looked as if it would be a very nice trail to drive in i hope someone from that area will chime in and let us know if they are good as they looked.

That's where 'home' is for me. Let me know if you are ever interested in taking a trip. I know of a lot of good places like that back upstate.

Thanks to everyone for the good feedback. Correct me if I am wrong but I think the "Coalmines" that everyone is thinking of is in a town called Centralia in PA. An mostly abandoned town that fell victim to an underground coal mine fire in 1962. The mines have been burning ever since then. This is a fairly popular offroad spot despite the very high risk of danger. There is an interesting web site about it. http://www.offroaders.com/album/centralia/centralia.htm
