Jeep Jamboree Attracts Hundreds
“It’s not a race, it’s not anything to get through quick. It’s just a slow ride through the woods,” said local coordinator John Lewins.
Drivers came from eight different states to get a Northwoods experience.
“It’s a change of pace. They love the atmosphere. They love the wooded areas. It’s something completely different than what they are used to,” Lewins said.
One driver isn’t a stranger to the Northwoods. Eric Loewenhagen is a Wisconsin native who hosts Jeep Jamborees all over the country.
“Wisconsin is a unique state. We’ve got everything from flat land all the way up to rolling hills in the Northwoods. It’s truly scenic, we have excellent fall colors. It’s worth driving to,” Loewenhagen said.
Drivers could choose from 10 different trails ranging from mild to wild. The routes are changed every year to keep Jeep lovers coming back.
