I got my FJ a year ago and my wife and I are planning to attend either Jambo or Summit next year, is one better than the other for first timers? It seems like chances of getting into summit are slim.
Thanks in advance for suggestions.

Both are great events. Summit is a bit more newbie friendly over all trails wise and you will find a larger concentration of FJC's. ALL Toyota events these days have a good number of FJC's but the Summit is the most concentrated.

As for getting into 2017 - that's yet to be announced how they are going to do registration next year, if it will change. Worth trying to get into.

Also open up your options for events too. The TLCA
EVENTS | TLCA Is the Toyota Landcruiser Association, there are events held accross the US sanctioned by them.

In your area in PA comming up in a week is the 2016 Coal Miner Cruiser Classic. Coal Mine Cruiser Classic - Gotham City Land Cruisers

I personaly have not been to the Classic yet, but we (Metal-tech 4x4) have sponsored the event for years and hear nothing but great things about it.

My personal all time favorite is the Southern Cruiser Crawl in AR.
Annual Off-Road Event | CottonLand Cruisers

Regardless of where you go, do GO! Events are a great way to learn more, meet great people and flat out have a great time.

You should come. We appreciate your sponsorships, and your stuff is great.

It's a great event, 4 days of wheeling over all types of northeast terrain. It's a good mix of new and old Toyota technology, and a bunch of great people from all of the northeast.

Ordoman - The Classic has been on my attend list for some time. It will happen one of these years for sure!

Now for more blueroom FJC's to make it out to the run as well! Have fun this year.

Another Event - fairly new is:
Appalachian Toyota Round Up

from the folks I spoke with that went last year it was a blast
The location is pretty awesome and not to far a drive for you from Philly

also the Nor-Eastern Event is supposed to be a good one to - lots of FJ's, and it's held in PA.

You could always try to plan your own trip. I'm not sure how far away an off-road park is from you, but a stock FJ is able to do at least intermediate trails.

Jambo is absolutely very friendly for first timers. We have a lot of classes on the basics offroading and plenty of guided runs to wet your feet or jump right in. It's a great, family friendly atmosphere. This was our 11th year and we broke all of our attendance records. Well over 320 Toyota 4x4s in the park. We close down the park so that its just Toyotas and no worrying about motorcycles or ATVs on the trails.

Thanks Thorn and Tgor I spent a good hour playing around on the Jambo site last night and talking with my wife about it and we decided that it sounds perfect and we'll be there next spring. Thanks for all of the help. Maybe by the time were ready for summit the registration issues will be sorted out.

That's on the list too, the first FJ I fell in love with was a white TT parked outside the Cracker Barrel on their way back from the Northeaster event I think back in 08 or 09.
