2. Optional: drive your Jeep on a self-guided ride in Targhee National Forest to see some of the less visited areas of the Targhee National Forest, Yellowstone and Grand Teton National Parks. We suggest either Cave Falls Road to Cave Falls or the Ashton-Flagg Ranch Road to Grassy Lake.

Where: Ashton City Park

How it will be organized: 1. 9:00 a.m. until Noon: Jeeps, from “Rusty to Restored”, will be displayed at the Ashton City Park. The Public is welcome to stop by and enjoy these old Jeeps!

    Is this a yearly event? It sounds great, but neither pre-1970 Jeep I’m working on will be done by then. Yes, I know… I’ll send this question to targheejeeps@gmail.com, too and ask Jack.

    Thanks for the email and the picture of your old Jeeps Joe!

    This is the first year for the Old Jeep Rendezvous. We’ve thought about doing it for several years and decided this was the year to give it a try. We’re not a club or a business, just people who like old Jeeps and enjoy driving them. With Yellowstone and Grand Teton so close and easy to get to from the Ashton area, it’s a great place to drive our Jeeps. I’ve posted pictures from a few of our drives on some of the old Jeep forums. Hope you can make it! Jack
