Pickens SC Jeep Explosion - Sept 25, 2021

For those of you near the upstate of SC or Western NC a Jeep event is planned for this Saturday. There are flyers on Facebook. The plan is to gather at I think 3 PM at Pickens High School and then make a short drive and park in town with a show from 4-6 or something like that. I plan to participate with the current weather forecast (high 70's and sunny).

Plan is to roll at 3:00 and assemble at 2:30. From the intel I've gathered there is going to be a large crowd. If you have never been to an ULJC event it won't just be CJs. We may bring both the CJ5 and the ZJ. I plan to get there around 1:30.

This ride is a tribute to Larry Hinkle. I posted this here a couple of weeks ago.

See you there!

It is sadly the same weekend as the CJ swap meet and show...otherwise I'm sure a lot more CJ folks would attend in Pickens.

Very cool. I don't think they do stuff like this in the Midwest... at least in Missouri. I would love to attend one

I would love to attend this event, but 8 hours each way would make for a weekend full of driving…even if my CJ-7 is my favorite vehicle to drive.

I drove Nick out to Appalachian State in Boone a couple weeks ago, and drove back the same day. It’s about the same distance, but I drove my EcoDiesel. A modern vehicle that has a roof & doors, air conditioning & cruise control, among other features that make it well suited for driving hundreds of miles on the freeway. My little tank could do it, but I’m not sure if I could do it.

The last time I drove it long distance was when we drove it home from Texas in 2019.

Why do I own a CJ? I like to “Balance the wrench and the steering wheel”

Drive your new diesel. This not a CJ only event. There will be Jeeps of all types and years. There probably will be more of you folks driving Jeeps with two too many door openings than all other kinds. There is going to be a "Who has the best looking..." contest. I was told that we need to drive our ZJ because it is a maybe winner. In that I will have to drive all of eight miles to get there we may drive both. I will not enter the CJ in any contest!

In May I hooked the CJ5 up to the ZJ and towed it to Charleston and N Myrtle Beach. HF sells a good and inexpensive adjustable tow bar.

The official count was over 400 Jeeps of all years and types. The response was so great that the post ride parking plan didn't work. We parked as clubs and I had to park in the street in one of the two street lanes.

The Boss has had an inner ear infection and she decided that she couldn't do the ride in the CJ5 so we took her 97 ZJ. Was kind of nice riding in air conditioned comfort and power steering.

I downloaded these pictures from FB this morning.

I hope this works but I saved this to my FB page. Someone let me know if you can view it.

This is what a small southern town looks like on Saturday afternoon when 400 Jeeps invade it.

There was just one feller at the event,

Even though he was "Army"

I feel sure he was sent TDY a lot to Air Force bases.

While on TDY, he learned to park from these guys.

Did you ever try to parallel park a Jeep limo in a CJ5 space? I once did see a pilot parallel park a C130 and win his crew a case of beer. His loadmaster said it had been months since his crew had to pay for a beer!

JEEPFELLER is just mad because Denise made him stay home.
