Road Trip!

After some thought I've decided that Jeeps had as much freedom and good fun as the bikers. With that in mind I'm beginning to work on coordinating a road trip for all Jeepers that are interested in a good company, FAMILY oriented Jeep trip starting in Chattanooga, TN and making the trip around the Southeast. The tenative dates and locations are open at this time; however, I would expect the trip to take approximately 1+ weeks and be in June 2009. Camping and hotel/motel accomodations would be a possibility and ALL Jeeps are welcome.

Feel free to contact me with any suggestions or to express interest in participating or helping to coordinate this event. Join me in the first (and hopefully annual) "Jeep Across America"!


Please contact me via jeepforum mail if you're interested in attending.

Looks like there's not much interest. How's about it? I thought it was a good idea....

We did this last year: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Nr63wj1-jTw

We're going to take our Conqueror trailer and go somewhere during the last 2 weeks of May in 2009. We were thinking of the North Rim of the Grand Canyon and a little Moab action....

Anybody that wants to camp for two weeks and join us on this road trip is welcome. Leaving NW of Atlanta on May 16 and returning on the 31st. BYO everything... ...as few "campgrounds" as possible...




Safety fast, Bill

Security is mostly a superstition. It does not exist in nature, nor do the children of men as a whole experience it. Avoiding danger is no safer in the long run than outright exposure. Life is either a daring adventure, or nothing.- Helen Keller

I haven't done it in my Jeep but I've made the TN to CA 'run' 3 times and it's a long one for sure!

It sounds like a great idea to me. Unfortunatly, at this time I don't have enough free time to do the whole trip. I'd like to join in on parts close by to me for sure. Sadly, I'm just a weekend warrior these days.

No problem. Actually, I was planning on starting from Chattanooga and then proceeding in some manner throughout much of the Southeast and then return to Chattanooga. Obviously in a week or two we couldn't 'discover' all of the Southeast but with some help in planning I'm sure we could hit some great sights and backroads of many of the southern states.

I'm open to suggestions and glad to have any help offered.

No response since November 2008. Looks like a "Road Hog" type trip isn't panning out. Any chance we've got some brave soles that just want to hit the open road and enjoy the sights around the southeast for about a week?
