Don Pratt Jeep Tours

• CATEGORIES: Advertising & Brochures, Features, Old Images, Old News Articles, Postcards • TAGS: .

UPDATE: As best as I can tell, it looks like 1963 was when Don Pratt’s Jeep Tours began working with the Kachina Cab company.  The article appeared in the August 13, 1963, issue of the Arizona Republic:

1963-08-13-arizona-republic-don-pratt-jeep-tours-sedona3-lores Clipping from Arizona Republic - Newspapers.com

===============================

Originally posted June 2019:  According to this Pink Jeep Tour site, Pink Jeep Tours is the oldest continuously operating Jeep Tour Company in the United States. It was started in 1958 by a Sedona Realtor named Don Pratt, who would drive clients to see homes at Broken Arrow Estates. The Broken Arrow tour is the original Jeep tour and is still today the most popular tour in Sedona.Why did he make the jeeps pink? Mr. Pratt got the idea while visiting the Royal Hawaiian Hotel on Waikiki Beach, where everything was pink.

But, that’s only part of the story. In her book Echoes of Sedona Past, Mary Lou Keller explains how her and her husband cleared the first trail and how, when Glenn Keller decided not to open a jeep tour business, their friend Don Pratt asked if he could do it instead. Mrs. Keller covers the story in five pages of her book available to read on Google.The book also includes the image below of Mary Lou Keller with her do Pico in her (probably) 1946 CJ-2A:

Battery Powered Toy Jeep Lexington, KY **SOLD**

• CATEGORIES: Features, toys

UPDATE: It turns out that I didn’t have to scoop this up this toy myself after all; Tom from Kentucky obtained it, then mailed it to me. It surely was a cool surprised. In this note to me he mentioned it still runs, so I popped in some D batteries. Sure enough, this jeep still goes backwards and forwards. The only glitch on it is the broken windshield, but I’ll see what I can do to repair it. Many Thanks Tom!

This appears to be a rare Andy Gard G I remote control jeep. If it was near me, I’d scoop it up.

1943 Jeep Used For English Stag Hunt

• CATEGORIES: Features, Old Images

Steve shared this July 2, 1943, article in the South Western Adviser (Perth, WA, Australia) about a couple of soldiers in a jeep who decided to join an English hunt.

https://trove.nla.gov.au/newspaper/article/149800975?

July 02, 1943, South Western Adviser, Australia

“JEEP HUNT”
THE UNITED STATES ARMY JEEP, ITS DRIVERS SAY, CAN GO ANYWHERE, AND DO ANYTHING, BUT, FOR THE FIRST TIME IN HISTORY, ONE WAS USED TO RIDE TO HOUNDS IN AN ENGLISH | STAG HUNT.

It happened “somewhere in England,” as soldiers developed their shooting eyes for Jerries on a rifle range. A firing group had just taken up places;’ adjust rifle slings, and were aiming, when the officer in charge yelled, “Hold it, men!”

Directly across the row of distant targets bounded a , magnificent stag. Soldiers’ mouths fell open as out of the; woods a Jeep hurtled in hot pursuit. In it rode two yelling, khaki-clad Robin Hoods.

The sergeant driver sent his vehicle bounding across small streams, missing trees by inches. A few seconds later a pack of hounds appeared in full cry. In fourth place, and well out of the
money, dashed mounted huntsmen.

An officer promptly ended the Doughbouys participation in the hunt. Huntsmen made it clear that chasing stags in Jeeps is definitely frowned upon in England. They also added—politely—that hunting is done only by invitation.
