The informal Texas Overland Facebook group was launched by several Toyota off-roaders from the Austin, TX area back in 2015. Since then, the group has grown as a rather popular movement with over 2,000 members. The Devereaux brothers, Andrew and Chris, along with friend Laud Maroney, organized the 2nd annual Texas Overland Spring Round Up event, which took place in April 2017. It was held on the scenic Palo Pinto County, Texas ranch owned by Martin Spencer, who also owns CB Adventure Supply. Registrants received an email containing the GPS coordinates to the campsite on the ranch.
The experiences, sights, and sounds of Lone Toyota Star Jamboree are forever engrained in the heads of the participants. The reddish-brown dirt is forever part of every truck that hit the trails. Deep in the piney woods of East Texas, this annual TLCA sanctioned event, affectionately referred to as Jambo, is held at the 1,850-acre Barnwell Mountain Recreation Area OHV park (BMRA). The event has gained in popularity due to the first-rate marketing, word-of-mouth, numerous trails, and massive raffle. Once again, Lone Star Toyota Jamboree broke an attendance record.
On a map, the southeastern portion of New Mexico seems almost featureless. With large National Forest lands spanning the western and northern portions of the Land of Enchantment, why bother with what appears to be wasteland in the southeast? In early March, we set out to blaze a trail across this possible scenic area on as many unpaved roads as possible. Our Tuesday through Friday route took us through smaller National Forests, BLM land, and ended in the Guadalupe Mountains. We were blessed with great weather on our 520 mile journey.
