As far as the adventure itself, the trip contains several trails of varying difficulty. The group is divided into caravans of around 50 Jeeps or less. Jamboree officials grade off-road trails by degree of difficulty on an ascending scale from one to 10. Most trails fall in the four to eight ranges. Progress along the route usually remains steady until the group comes upon an obstacle where Jeepers will take on the challenge one by one, then stop again to wait for the rest of the group.
