Here are some common questions that we’ve been asked in previous years. If you can’t find an answer to the question that you have please send an email to email@example.com.
I don’t own a Jeep, can I still attend? Yes, the event is open to all off-road vehicles with high ground clearance, low range, skid plates and 40″ or smaller tires
Can I bring my ATV, side by side, dirt bike etc? No. The only vehicles permitted on the property must be licensed and insured for on-road use.
Can I bring my dog? No dogs are allowed on the property at the request of the land owner no matter how well behaved. This is not negotiable.
Is the event accessible? Yes. We make every attempt to accommodate. We provide a wheelchair accessible port-o-potty and the grounds at base camp are level and assistive-device friendly. Organizers just need to know in advance to ensure your needs are met. Hand-controlled (brakes/throttle) off-road vehicles have done well on the trails, even the higher rated ones.
If I’m a London & Area Jeep Owners Club member can I pay for someone who is a non-member? Yes. However, only you will receive the discount for your own registration, if applicable, and can register yourself during the early bird period, if you have renewed your membership by January 31st of the current year. Once registration is open to the public you may coordinate with your family/friends to enter their pertinent information and pay on their behalf.

You would register for one passenger, which includes one Sunday closing ceremony meal. You would then have to purchase the meal for your additional guest as an “extra meal” for $15. If one passenger is an adult and the other is a youth or child you would have to pay the appropriate rate for the adult registration.

My Jeep is stock and I’ve never been off-road before but want to learn how it can handle off-road conditions. Can I still come? Yes. We offer an introductory 101 course on Saturday with trails that are designed for your vehicle. You vehicle is more capable that you think it is.

Our Guides do everything possible to make sure you and your vehicle end up on the best trails for your skills and it’s configuration. It’s important to listen to your trail guides and you are ultimately responsible for your vehicle.

We also have an on-site mechanic that may be able to help you out.
