Meet & Greet, 2006
June 24th I decided to put up a Meet'N'Greet in Wyoming. The first
ever out of Colorado. So is the word. In thoughts that I'd meet
great full size jeep enthusiasts. My wife and I were excited to
show off our Jeeps. Man did we ever meet three jeep lovers and some
really nice folks to talk jeeps to.
the wife and I got there first. Sitting in my wife's 1991 Grand
Wagoneer waiting for someone to show. All of the sudden I hear this
monster of a truck (jeep truck) blasting in the parking lot. (scared
the crap out of my wife). There is BRUTUS a 1974 J 10. Jason Habrock
jump out. So Jason and Rene (my wife) and I jawed about jeeps for
a better part of an hour.
we talked I asked Jason if he knew if anybody else was going to
show. He said that Ken Hanawalt said he was going to show. Jason
described Ken's orange jeep to me. Told some stories of Kens 1974
Wagoneer. As we chatted, out of the blue this train drove up. (really
it was Ken in his Wag blowing his new horns). Ken and his wife got
out and started to chat as we knew each other for ever. (only in
a jeep family). Then Kirk Haines shows up. No jeep but it was nice
to see that we can all talk of the Jeeps.
made our way in the V.I. to get some lunch. We spent a couple of
hours jawing about jeeps. Stories of trail runs, and not so good
runs. Stories of Ken in a walmart bathroom. (something's better
left untold). When Ken's wife looked out at the jeeps, to see if
any more jeeps had showed, so she says. (I think she was admiring
the four beauties.) When she noticed that one of the soldiers fall
out of line. Jason forgot to put his jeep in gear and it roll back
about 10 feet. There was a policeman there but thank god not about
THE RUNAWAY JEEP. It was a good laugh. All in all it was a good
time. Nice to chat with some Jeep lovers.
lunch we convoyed to my house. We lost one of the line up.(sorry
Kirk) Drank a beer and call it a day.
and my 1979 Jeep wagoneer was there. So in showing was Jason 1974
J10, Ken in his 1974 Wagoneer, Rene (my wife) in her 1991 Grand
Wagoneer, Kirk (no jeep this time), and Chuck (me) in my 1979 Wagoneer.
