2008 Recap

2008 Pismo Jamboree RecapDespite concerns of the event having a low turn out due to the high winds and cold weather conditions, the 6th annual Pismo 4runner Jamboree was held on October 10-12, 2008 and it was a great event. About 57 vehicles had originally registered for the event but only about 47 showed up. The event attracted people from all over, including Northern and Southern California, Washington and some even came from as far as Virginia and Pennsylvania.  The wheeling was epic and the organization was superb. Stay tuned at UltimateYota’s website under the Trip Reports section for updates on the 2008 Pismo 4runner Jamboree event, and make sure you sign up early for the 2009 Pismo event so you won’t be left out on the action from 2008!

Oceano Dunes State Vehicular Recreational Area, formerly Pismo Dunes SVRA is located off the central coast of California. The sand dune complex is geologically unique and also provides an impressive playground for off-highway enthusiasts from throughout the United States. One of several OHV areas administered by the California Department of Parks and Recreation, Oceano Dunes also offers visitors other recreational activities such as swimming, surfing, surf fishing, camping, hiking and simply enjoying the beach environment.

2008 Pismo Jamboree Recap2008 Pismo Jamboree RecapParticipants enjoyed a variety of obstacles in the dunes by traversing large bowls, steep inclines/declines and varying sizes of uneven mounds (aka whoops). Some of the brave owners launched their vehicles in the air off of the inclines.

The event organizers offered its first ever GPS Challenge where participants had to locate 5 GPS coordinates with challenges posted at each site. The GPS challenge proved to be difficult as many attempted to locate the 5 points of interest but only 2 participants successfully located and completed the challenge.

The event attracted many vendors who donated great prizes for the raffle donation. The raffle benefitted the Friends of Oceano Dunes which is a California Not-for-Profit Public Benefit Corporation. Their objective is to unite the many people who enjoy the Oceano Dunes in a cohesive organization that can promote and reinforce responsible recreation.
