Ever since hubby and I have been married, I’ve driven practical vehicles. I’m okay with that. We have four kids and function has always been the most important consideration. I have never really cared what I drove as long as it fit the family and was reliable. But just over a week ago, we bought the vehicle of my dreams! Meet Oscar, my Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Freedom Edition.
I fell in love with Daughter #2’s Rubicon that I drove out in Arizona. I honestly never thought I would be interested in off roading though, until hubby and I got to go on the Jeep track at the dealer. Now I can’t wait to go! I have a lot to learn, but it should be fun!
I just got back from my third trip to Wisconsin since I got back from Arizona. My dad has had cancer for some time and is now in hospice care. I didn’t realize it until I was there early last week, that I would be traveling home over the Mackinaw bridge at the same time as the Jeep the Mac event.
It is an entire weekend of activities for Jeep enthusiasts. The big event on Friday is the massive Jeep migration over the bridge and back. So I decided I wanted to take part too! There were nearly 700 Jeeps that participated in the crossing. Here are a couple pics of the staging area.
I found out that Jeep peeps are very friendly people! I tend to be rather shy, but I talked to some really nice folks there. I had to get home Friday night, but next year I want to go for The whole weekend and take part in the trail rides at Drummond Island as well as the scavenger hunts. Here are a few more pics from the event.
Have a great day!
