And not a dog in the bunch

In a per­fect world, the show you’ve been prepar­ing for since last year would go off with­out a

hitch. The sun would be shin­ing, the birds would be singing, and traf­fic would part like the Red Sea did for Moses. Let’s face it—we don’t live in a per­fect world. We live in a world where Mur­phy’s Law reigns supreme. We live in a world where time slips away and last-minute fixes are the norm, caus­ing you to scramble around the night be­fore a big show try­ing to get your mas­ter­piece ready to show the world. Should you be lucky enough to have all your ducks line up in a nice lit­tle row, there is one force that is out of your con­trol—Mother Na­ture.

We might have had a lit­tle rain on July 21-22 at the 23rd An­nual All Breeds Jeep Show in York, Penn­syl­va­nia, but it would take a lot more than that to stop the tra­di­tion of one of the long­est-run­ning Jeep shows in the east­ern U.S. With so much to of­fer, it’s no sur­prise the show is still go­ing strong. A show ’n’ shine, LTI ramp, swap meet, and a whop­ping $20,000 in prizes are just a few rea­sons to be there. There were nearly 100 Jeep-re­lated ven­dors to talk to and food ven­dors ga­lore. It took sev­eral days and over 100 truck­loads of rock and soil to cre­ate an ob­sta­cle course play­ground con­sist­ing of a bridge, some chal­leng­ing boul­ders, and thanks to the rain, lots and lots of mud.

PA Jeeps was founded in 1992 by a group of friends, and their event quickly be­came one of the must-see shows for Jeep fans of all kinds. Thanks to this show, money has been raised and do­nated to many char­i­ties, with this year’s pro­ceeds go­ing to Mr. Sandy’s Home­less Vet­er­ans Cen­ter in York, Penn­syl­va­nia. For those of you who couldn’t make the show, here is a glimpse of the many Jeeps and ac­tiv­i­ties par­tic­i­pants en­joyed. If you want to see some cool Jeeps, play on a fun ob­sta­cle course, and just have an all-around good time, this show is not one to miss in 2019.
