Big news - got a wave

Driving through Wisconsin, I came across one of the JKs at Camp Jeep. I quickly said outloud: "A JK, will it wave?". It did wave... well, the owner (DC employee) waved. I officially received my first wave from a JK.

Not much information in this topic though..

I'll be waving when I get mine, even if some of you will be giving me the finger.

In a democratic gesture, I waved to a JK while driving my LJ down County Rd. J in front of Camp Jeep. My wave was returned with confused looks from the driver (male) and passenger (female). Could it be these people do not know about the Jeep wave? Could it be that they were surprised someone in a TJ-based vehicle waved to them first? I dunno, but they didn't wave back.

As a side note, over the last couple of years I've noticed a decline in the number of Jeepers waving to eachother. In Ohio, you've got about a 50/50 chance of being waved to. Has anybody else noticed this?

"The Wave" is alive and well around here.
We just gave my brother's M38 to a friend of the family. I got it running after sitting for nearly 5 years and have been helping with some body work and the mechanicals. He told me, the other day, that he and his wife were driving and an older gentleman walking down the sidewalk stopped and saluted them... a vet I assume...that's pretty cool. I have found that some Jeepers aren't quite sure if they should wave to my sister's Comando though. I assume not many people know what it is.

Come visit us one day in Massachusetts, it's about a 80% chance of having the wave returned.

Dude, since I moved to this God-forsaken state four months ago, I've gotten about a 70/30 mix; leaning heavily to those who DO NOT wave back. Back home in Annapolis, Maryland, it seems like you can't go a hundred feet without a Jeep waving at you, and about 99% wave back in MD. I don't know what's up with Ohio people in Jeeps.

Now, with that being said . . . when my girlfriend is driving, she gets a lot more waves. Not sure why . . . . . lol

Whatever the case, if you see my Intense Blue TJ or her (whatever color she picks)JK on the roads, you can bet we'll wave!

That's because the people waving back probably built our rigs. lol

I don't know why Ohioans are less likey to wave. I wave to everyone I see. I drive my LJ about half the time, the other half of the time I drive a car. It never fails that when I'm in the car I wave at a passing Jeep. Talk about some strange looks!

CherokeeTom, I'm in the same boat as you. Anytime I'm in the work car, or any other of my cars, I usually wave at the first few Jeeps before I realize I'm not in my TJ. You do get some pretty strange glances back, I even got the finger once.

Around here, I'd say it's about 75/25, with 75% waving or waving back and the other 25% not doing anything but looking at you, and sometimes even glaring at you, because they're soooo cool, they can't even figure out why someone they don't know would dare wave at them.

Some of you guys are lucky. Most of the jeeps in this state don't wave at all.
