Kent Frost – A Man of Canyonlands

• CATEGORIES: Books, Features, Old Images Jeeping, videos, Willys Wagons • TAGS: .

UPDATE: I’ve added two newspaper photos to this post about Kent. One shows him signing copies of his autobiography. The other depicts him with a huge walking stick, one I’m sure could come in handy while exploring ‘his’ beloved canyons.

Even today, Kent’s shadow looms large over the area. Just this last week the Moab Museum screened the “My Canyonlands” film about him.

(Originally Published April 2011) Without a doubt, my favorite part about running this website are the unexpected, interesting people to whom I’m introduced (if only virtually).  One of those people is Kent Frost, a product of the Four Corners area and whom we caught glimpses of in Alan’s color photos of the 1961 Four Corners trip.

Doug commented on one of the Four Corner posts that he had read a book by Kent Frost called “My Canyonlands”, published in 1971. I’m very happy that Doug mentioned the book, because I ordered it and have enjoyed it immensely.  Kent describes all kinds of adventures and early trips into remote areas of the four corners region.  He loved to explore and hike, later jeep and river run, and that remote area has given him a lifetime of experiences.

1959 Wagon Government Camp, OR $18,500

• CATEGORIES: Willys Wagons

UPDATE: Price dropped to $15,900.

(08/12/2016) Dan spotted this nice wagon out of Oregon.

“1959 Willys Jeep Wagon, 4WD, Everyday Driver, Original Drive Train, Warn Overdrive, Warn Automatic Hubs. I bought the Vehicle in 2000 in Vancouver, WA from it’s second owner. I restored/re-built it as an every-day driver in 2004. I’ve kept it in a garage since I restored it. The body, interior, engine, and drive train were done in local shops in the Portland Metro.
It comes with a few spare parts. I have a set of snow tires mounted on the same style rims that would be extra if you’re interested. The right front brake needs some TLC before you start driving it every day.
I’ve driven this fun wagon for 20 years, but now I’m looking for something new and different.”

Holy Joe Movie

• CATEGORIES: Features, videos, Willys Wagons

Mike pointed out that the 1999 movie Holy Joe, starring John Ritter and Meredith Baxter, included a Willys wagon. I believe the moral of the story is that if you do good in the world that someone will restore your wagon for you? At least, that’s what I got out of it!

Based on various angles, I believe this was a 1961ish 2WD Maverick, but I am open to other thoughts.You’ll note the ‘restoration’ of the wagon does not reflect an original paint scheme. The wagon makes several appearances. Here are the three longest ones.

The 11:09 minute mark before ‘restoration’:

The 51.25 minute mark before ‘restoration’:
