Side­ways

Jp Magazine - - Table Of Contents -

ALERT: Send us your fam­i­ly­va­ca­tion-in-a-Jeep ex­pe­ri­ence, es­pe­cially if it’s

vin­tage or parked in front of a mon­u­ment or note­wor­thy thingy (world’s largest ball of string, or what­ever you come across). We also want to see the usual fare: Rather than the same built rides that we put in Jeep Shots, Side­ways is all about your mil­i­tary Jeep ex­pe­ri­ence, your sunk/stuck/ rolled Jeep ex­pe­ri­ence, fam­ily ex­pe­ri­ence with a Jeep, or other per­sonal history in which a Jeep played a part. We want to see and hear, so send us a pic and don’t for­get the most im­por­tant parts of all: who is in the photo (first and last name), where it was taken, what year/type of Jeep, and the fun back­story info. And tell us who you are and where you’re from if you’re not the one in the photo. Make sure the photo is high res­o­lu­tion (no less than 1,600 by 2,000 pix­els or around 2 megapix­els) and a JPG (max­i­mum qual­ity), BMP, or TIFF file. No PDFs. Email the photo and story to jped­i­tor@jp­magazine.com with the sub­ject line, “Side­ways.”

En­dors­ing the Easter Jeep Sa­fari

Here’s Dennis Riggs and his ’84 Scram­bler in Moab dur­ing the ’18 Easter Jeep Sa­fari. “What a great time, and what a great as­sort­ment of Jeeps and peo­ple,” said Dennis. This doc­u­mented as­sort­ment of peo­ple and Jeeps and great time hap­pened on the Crys­tal Geyser Trail “where the view was fab­u­lous, but the geyser did not co­op­er­ate while we were there.” Also, Dennis had an in­ter­est­ing ob­ser­va­tion: “I no­ticed only four other Scram­blers out of the hun­dreds of Jeeps at the event.”

Peo­ple with Scram­blers, who like to have a great time…where were you?

Mail­room Archives

We dusted off an en­ve­lope and dis­cov­ered gold in­side. This vin­tage pic came from Jamie and Jeremy Mor­row, and pic­tured are Aeriel and Laine way back as their tod­dler selves. “I think that Amer­ica would love it,” wrote Jamie of this pho­to­graphic cap­ture of all the great­est things ever. What isn’t to love here?

Heard of Jeep Road? It’s Real

This is the Ham­ran Basin near the Is­raeli-Egyp­tian bor­der, “and it’s a real axle­breaker.” That was a warn­ing given by Tomer Hadar, who sent this pic from Is­rael. “Many peo­ple don’t know—with­out Jeeps, we would not have a coun­try. Army sur­plus Jeeps were the only off-road–ca­pa­ble ve­hi­cles in Is­rael back in the day. And in 1948, when Jerusalem was un­der siege, a group of sol­diers broke the siege by ar­riv­ing through a back­road that was im­pos­si­ble to travel with a reg­u­lar car. The road is of­fi­cially called ‘Jeep road.’ We also have a Jeep fac­tory in Nazareth that made ev­ery­thing from the FC to CJ-7.” Seen here is Tomer pi­lot­ing his ’06 Jeep Lib­erty. “Ev­ery­one in their Ru­bi­con JK had a laugh when the Lib­erty showed up. But we showed them...lol.”

CJ Genes

“This was me and Mom, and me and Dad, as they took turns with the Brownie. It’s in the genes. Since I was a young­ster, Jeep has been part of my life,” said Rick Nel­son. He also ex­plained that this ’47 Jeep CJ later got a redo as a flatbed truck. “It went ev­ery­where on the farm and into the woods hunt­ing. It was used to pull most any­thing, from skaters on a frozen lake to hay wag­ons to broke-down trucks or trac­tors.” Rick has grown up to own many dif­fer­ent Jeeps him­self, in­clud­ing a ’70 CJ-6 and ’63 CJ-5.
