On the evening (2 nights ago) that Craig became a grandpa, instead of doing whatever grandpas should do to celebrate, he was busily scanning stuff for us! It’s clear his Willys Sickness is far more advanced than I thought! However, to his credit, this really is a cool picture. In fact, it’s so cool, that I managed to skip over the part where he said he became a grandpa! It wasn’t until I re-read it tonight that I felt like a total doof.”
This photo comes from the March 1957 issue of Willys News. The jeep wagon train operated at the Stephen Foster State Folk Culture Center – White Springs, Florida.
Floridamemory.com has a variety of photos related to the wagons. Below are a few of them.

This photo looks like the jeep is a CJ-5 rather than a CJ-3B. State Archives of Florida, Florida Memory, http://floridamemory.com/items/show/87462
