Friday in Hudson Ohio: Day 1 of the Midwest Willys Reunion

• CATEGORIES: Features • TAGS: .


Friday morning we woke in Hudson, OH, to a beautiful sunny day. I spent the morning honing the presentation I’ll be giving on Saturday. I will be sharing with the audience (assuming more than just Ann shows up) why I run eWillys, how I do it, the challenges, and what the future holds.

On Friday afternoon we made our way to the Clarion Hotel where the 2013 Midwest Willys Reunion is being held. After a quick practice run through the presentation with the slide projector, Ann and I went out to look at all the jeeps.

It seemed every few steps we took someone approached us to share how much they enjoyed eWillys. It’s great to know the site is enjoyed by so many. I had fun putting names to faces and shaking hands.

As you can see from the pictures, there were plenty of jeeps to browse today. More are expected tomorrow.

    Dave and Ann-

    Did you get to meet the twins, Carol and Nancy with their pink Surrey? I think the owner of the tan Jeep is a regular contributor on Derek’s CJ3B Forums, especially in the DJ3A area. I saw him and his Jeep a couple of years ago at the Jeep meet in Jefferson City, MO. Craig was there as well. I have a couple of photos of that Jeep also.

    Colin. Only one of the twins came. Ann talked with her, but I never got a chance to have a full conversation with her. Right now I’m blanking on which twin that was. I’ll have to dig that up.

    Their jeep is beautiful!
