Gone Camping


THURSDAY UPDATE II: Wednesday night we stayed at the Maryhill State Park, which is nestled next to the Columbia River. Unfortunately, it’s also next to a train track; and, across the river from a second train track and I-84; and at the bottom of a long hill down which semi-trucks travel using their air brakes all night. For a pretty spot kind of in the middle of nowhere it was noisy, way too noisy!!

So, we are heading to another campground, this one a primitive place in the middle of Oregon. There are no train tracks, no nearby highways, no power, and no cell service …. 

WEDNESDAY NIGHT UPDATE: Good news. We have connectivity at our campground. We’ll be camping for a few days.

Now for a funny story.

We stopped to fill the motorhome with gas this afternoon. Next to the gas station was a McDonalds, so Ann walked over in her baggy camping clothes to get a little food.  As she walked away she laughed and shouted, “I bet these clothes make me look homeless!”

Her knee has been bothering her, so she slowly walked there, just adding to her “look”. On her return trip, she exited McDonalds, again slowly, then paused to let a vehicle leave the drive-thru. At that point, a woman driving slowly past Ann rolled down her window and attempted to give Ann a dollar bill, thinking Ann was homeless. Ann was befuddled. She looked at the woman and shook her head and said, “no thanks.” Puzzled, the woman shrugged, rolled up her window, and drove on….

I think my next book should be titled, Yikes! I Married a Homeless Woman!

1952 M-38A1 Wilbraham, MA $20,000

• CATEGORIES: M-38A1 • TAGS: , .

Craig spotted this M-38A1 that’s been repowered with a Kubota diesel engine.

“1952 Willys M38A1 was brought back to life in 2015 after a two year restoration and modification was completed. Every nut and bolt was removed, inspected, replaced if damaged and reassembled to ensure this restoration did not leave any areas of the Jeep untouched. Two major modification were completed during the restoration. The electrical system was converted to a 12V system and the engine was replaced with a Kubota V2403 60 HP turbo diesel engine”

1947 CJ-2A Goodyear, AZ $8500


UPDATE: Still Available.

This seller’s grandfather started the Seattle Belly Panner’s Jeep Club in Washington. I don’t know the history of the club, but I’d be hard pressed to believe it was started prior to the Yakima Ridgerunners (known for being the first incorporated club in the US). That said, by the early 1970s the club was down to only three members (none of which had a CJ-2A) so this could well be a pretty early club.

1942 GPW Salado, TX $2400


UPDATE: Still Available.


“For Sale: 1942 Ford GPW Open Jeep. This is a bonified WWII Veteran. DOM in ’42, right on the data plate. Data plates are all legible, serial numbers intact. I do not have a title for the jeep. Gun turret mount is on the frame, and part of the tub as designed. This is an original Ford GPW.

The Bad: This jeep was, unfortunately, modified for a 283 V-8 motor. The front cross member has been cut, the front grill internal shroud has been cut and the frame has been drilled in several locations for new motor mount locations. The GPW tub, (embossed tool bin lids & data plates) has been cut at the fire wall for the V-8. You’ve got sheet metal work there at those locations. The drive line is gone down to the driveshafts. I removed the V-8, T-90 and T3 transfer case that was in it. The windshield frame is long gone as are the front seats, rear seat, gas tank and original gauges.

Canadian-Made Bell Crank

• CATEGORIES: Features, Parts

Maury met up with Lawrence, the ex-jeep mechanic who makes modified bell cranks, a couple days ago. Lawrence showed him the unusual crank pictured below. Neither man knew what it was (nor did I), so Maury did a little sleuthing and discovered it seems to be a Canadian made part, built for the M-38/M-38A1 CDN.

You can learn more at G503:
