1949 Truck Arlington, WA **SOLD**

• CATEGORIES: Willys Trucks • TAGS: .

UPDATE: **SOLD** Was $7500.

Here a nice looking vintage truck. This map is supposed to show where the Bonanza Lead Mill was located. The Bonanza Lead Company operated the Old Dominion lead-zine mine near Colville; I can only guess that the Bonanza Lead Mill was also operated by Bonanza.

Shane’s Spring 2020 Trip in a GPW

• CATEGORIES: Features
draft-of-trip

Shane’s preliminary route from Florida to Richmond, VA, Spring 2020, View it on Google.

You may remember my visit with Shane Miller while I was visiting Richmond, Virginia, this past December. I recently turned Shane onto a running, driving GPW in Florida, which he subsequently bought. Instead of towing it home, he’s decided to drive it home to Richmond, an 863 mile drive. He plans on taking the trip sometime in late March or April.

Shane’s preliminary Route on Google 

Why is he doing it? Because, why not? I applaud the adventurous spirit and am jealous that I’m not in the passenger seat! Sometimes you just gotta live life and take some chances.

That said, he’s not dumb either. He’s worked on enough WWII jeeps that he doesn’t underestimate their ability to break down. So, he’s publishing a potential route to see who might be along the route in case he does have some mechanical problems.

One of his goals is to visit the Jeep-Collection at Omix-Ada. Another goal is to visit his 101-year-old Great Uncle, a WWII vet, in Athens, Georgia. He thinks his uncle will get a very big kick out of seeing him driving the GPW.

If you are along the route or have suggestions/comments, feel free to comment below or contact him directly at donovanshanemiller @ gmail.com (no spaces around the @)
