UPDATE:

Yes, the Gettysburg National Military Park is closed due to the Government Shutdown. If our elected officials cannot get their act together by the time we do the "Battlefield Tour," I have a Plan B! We will meet at the same time and place on Oct. 26th. We will follow our guide into Gettysburg, where we will park our Jeeps and go on a walking tour of sites significant to the battle in July 1863.


You know us Jeep folk are always prepared! All we need is some sunshine!  ;)

Woo Hoo!  ;D
 
The 7th Annual Mason Dixon Willys Jeep Gathering was a huge success!

We tripled the number of military vehicles this year and were once again blessed with sunshine for the Gettysburg run and the show!

Special thanks to Jenn (Brrrrrr!) Watson and Dave Watson! I couldn't have done it without you!

See the photos on FaceBook and all of the Jeep forums... or the front page of today's Carroll County Times!
