"Where on Earth can you experience the thrill of an amusement ride, trek on the pathways of some of history's greatest legends, and visit the spectacular scenery of over 30 of this country's most picturesque off-pavement destinations, all from the security and comfort of your own Jeep vehicle? If you guessed the answer is found at any one of the Jeep Jamboree USA 2002 events, you'd be right on track!
Kris Van Nest's weekly 30-minute national broadcast called "Trekken" will air 13 different Jeep Jamboree episodes. Van Nest will take viewers off the beaten path to places only Jeep vehicle owners can experience, but that anyone with a love of the outdoors can appreciate. Featuring some of the most scenic remote places in the country, the show will air three times per week – twice during prime time."
