Embrace Your Inner Redneck at Your Local 4x4 Jamboree
Have you ever caught yourself gazing longingly at a gun rack in Wal-Mart, hoping no one sees you? Do you wait till the spouse is asleep, then fire up the TV and watch episodes of “Duck Dynasty” till dawn? Or do you know the words to “Whiskey Bent and Hell Bound” yet have no idea where you learned them from? If any of those things sounds like you, then it’s time to face the truth: you’ve got some redneck in your genes. Don’t be ashamed of it, my friend. The dark days when we had to hide from society have long since passed. It’s time to come out of that 500 square foot walk-in closet and tell the world who you really are. And there’s no better place to do so than at a good, ol’-fashioned 4x4 jamboree. “What’s a Jamboree?”
Well, I'm glad you asked. A jamboree is a celebration of the things you love, whether you admit it or not. Held in arenas, race tracks, and small town fairgrounds across the country, these events include all the fun stuff you remember from your teenage years, including: Giant, customized 4x4s, trucks, and Jeeps of all kinds, with wheels taller than a two-story house and cabs so high they show up on airport radar. Junk cars getting pounded flat by the aforementioned monster machines, to the delight of thousands of screaming spectators. Huge clouds of black smoke billowing into the sky from tire burnout exhibitions. Flea markets filled with caps, t-shirts, model cars, chrome wheels, and all kinds of other stuff you never thought you’d see outside of a truck stop. Pretty girls in bikinis, each trying to outdo the other for the right to be called “Miss Jamboree” for the next 12 months. And, of course, mud – lots of it, spraying the trucks, the drivers, the stands, the food vendors, and the fans, who wouldn’t have it any other way. That’s a brief look at what jamborees are all about. If it sounds like your idea of fun, then check out this site for more information. In the meantime, stay red, my friend.
