My Buddy

As a child I experienced my first introduction to Jeeps.

My uncle had a Willys Jeep that he used to get back and forth to his mountain top farm in Lincoln County, W.Va. What a thrill to bounce over those rough trails in the back with my feet hanging over the tailgate. Another uncle used one on a large farm that he managed in western New York state.

As an adult I have owned five Jeeps, three new and the other two used. I was teased recently by some young squirt who commented that I drove a Jeep to look cool. Wrong. I have used them primarily for transportation including a lot of 7 and 8 hour trips. I use my current Jeep to pull a ten foot trailer, a pontoon boat and to do chores around my hillside acreage.

My current Jeep in a 2002 Wrangler Safari with 110 thousand miles. It does not use oil and has not had any mechanical problems. It is the first Jeep that I have had with automatic transmission and I love that feature. In the summer I take off the hard top and put on the canvas. It has been a great vehicle and a source of a lot of enjoyment.

If you don't have Jeep, get one. You won't be sorry.

Keep on Jeeping!
