Jeeps at the Peaks
Description

Jeep has been around for a very long time and has a long history dating back to 1940.  Willys-Overland produced the first Civilian Jeep (CJ) in 1945 and was the only company to continue to make Jeeps after the war.  Willys-Overland was granted the privilege of owning the name “Jeep” as a registered trademark in June 1950. The brand has been sold many times over the years and gone through a few changes but is still manufactured in Toledo, Ohio where it was born.

Today Jeeps are much more modern and come loaded with creature comforts. Supported by a huge aftermarket it allows the owner to express themselves through customization. Jeeps at the Peaks is one of many Jeep gatherings that is supported by clubs, groups and organizations like MoCo Jeeps (Montgomery County Jeeps), Texas Dirty Jeep Girls and Outlaw Jeep Club of Texas. These folks are not just weekend warriors, these Jeeps are daily drivers and trail ready any time. Off road events dot their calendars and many of them support charities such as Toys for Tots, Ronald McDonald House and others throughout the year as well. This Jeep meet was held at Twin Peaks in Spring, Texas just north of Houston but the location changes each time to try to accommodate everyone. 

These events are a social gathering of like-minded enthusiast who love there Jeeps but are very much family oriented and love recreational fun. Jeeps are a lifestyle and the owners are happiest when they are behind the wheel. However some owners like Andrea Ellis took it a step further when she started Jeep-N Jewelry. Andrea makes bracelets, earrings, key chains, hair bows and other items that is Jeep themed or related and she can even do custom items too. Check it out at: jeepnjewelry.com.

The Jeepers are a unique group of free spirits who enjoy life in a Jeep. They acknowledge one another in passing with a Jeep wave and anxiously await there next adventure.
