I remember running around in a jeep.  Not mine, but it sure was fun to run
across the desert out from El Paso.  The Jeep I rode around in was a WWII
Jeep manufactured by Ford, and had a small block Ford dropped into it.  The
problem was the driver, a friend of JWR & me would twist off axels and I
spent more than one night out in the desert  fiddling with a broken Jeep.

        The Jeep went to summer camp where I was also a counselor.  It was a camp
to learn about handling horses and one of the horses died.  The one ton
pickup couldn't pull the dead horse out of the way on the trail, but that
little Jeep winched it a little then was able to just take off with it.  It
had incredible power.

Life is a romantic business. It is painting a picture, not doing
a sum -- but  you have to make the romance, and it will come to the
question how much fire you have in your belly. -- Oliver Wendell Holmes, Jr.
