Fast forward many years and I find myself in Los Angeles in the early 1990s and was introduced once again the Jeep pictured above. A girl friend of mine at the time owned this Jeep and had it shipped from Chicago to Los Angeles. It was a perfect vehicle for LA and it was a lot fun driving it, specially with no doors!
At that time I did not think I will ever be in a Jeep again until 2014 when I got my first Jeep with which I traveled to New York and Washington DC during the last elections and inauguration and then traveled to North Dakota during the Standing Rock protests. Sleeping in the Jeep was particularly pleasant--cold but pleasant and comfortable. I am now preparing for my epic road trip and I was reminiscing about the past Jeeps with which I had experience.
