Day 18: Not much to report. I spent Wednesday morning working on the presentation, then we drove to the Bertram Inn & Conference Center in Aurora, Ohio, which is larger than anticipated and very nice.


We knew we were in the right place when we spotted Bob Christy’s CJ-3B:


For the first time since we left Pasco, we unloaded much of the jeep in preparation for the Spring Willys Jeep Reunion this weekend. We enjoyed some fish tacos for dinner with Bob and Mindy Christy and caught up with them. I can’t believe it’s been five years since we’d seen each other in person!

After dinner, we finished off the evening by doing our laundry. Yep, an exciting day!

On Thursday I’ll be polishing up the presentation. We expect a lot of people to be rolling into the complex today in preparation for tomorrow.

    Dear Mr. Willys,

    I’m pretty sure if you check with Ann, she’ll tell you I’m a few commandments short of GOD! 🙂
    She would also likely tell you that I work too much (7 days a week varying amounts)! It’s just that me working doesn’t make for good photos….

    Your humble servant,

    – Dave

    Hello Dave. Jerry O here. I hope to make it to the reunion on Saturday day and see your presentation. Looking forward to the event.

    No 3B this time though.

    Well the weather looks much better there, than it is on the east coast. Or did you photograph a hotel post card??? Hopefully it stays that way to look over those nice Jeeps that I’m going to miss!

    Like they say in Philadelphia sports, “There is always next year.”
