To no one’s surprise, Scotty and his crew at Addicted Offroad pulled off another successful event, this year near the town of Buena Vista in central Colorado. Buena Vista and the surrounding region have been known for some time as an outdoorsman’s mecca. There is no shortage of memorable and challenging terrain to explore in this part of the state. This region is home to such trails as Holy Cross, Wheeler Lake, Carnage Canyon (BV), Grizzly Lake, Iron Chest and many more, ranging from mild to wild. The area also offers many non-wheeling activities with its towering 14,000 foot peaks (more than any other area of the state), numerous creeks and lakes, old mining towns to explore and scenic views everywhere you look.
This year’s event was held on July 20-22 a few miles south of town on private land which included onsite camping, amenities, vendors/sponsors and many enthusiasts from all over the Rocky Mountains and mid-west regions. In addition to the many off-roading adventures taking place at the Toyota Jamboree, one of the highlights to the weekend was the raffle and free BBQ put on by Scotty and Addicted Offroad. Despite the dry weather that plagued Colorado in 2012 which left a majority of the state in a fire-ban for most of the summer, recent rainfall allowed for a lift in the fire-ban long enough for the Jamboree to hold a giant bon-fire for the event attendees after the raffle and BBQ.
Events like the Colorado Toyota Jamboree are a great example of what the off-road community can do to help create awareness of the effort needed to keep trails open and enjoy them responsibly. All proceeds of the event and raffle were donated to Stay the Trail to help the association promote the responsible use of the roads and trails that are open to motorized recreation in Colorado.
