#YJJ Book: Jeep Color History

Yellow Jeep Book

An interesting Twitter conversation emerged today about how a children’s book would dare call a Jeep a “car.” Such heresy! I mentioned that I had heard very early Jeeps called “scout cars” in a Ford promotional film.

To confirm my memory, I did a bit of research and found this great book, “Jeep Color History,” by Steve Statham, on Google Books. On pages 19 and 20 was the proof:

“the military would have to set forth the specifications it wanted for its proposed scout car and worked with automakers to create the final product. … The early scout cars from Bantam, Willys and Ford were not immediately labeled “Jeeps”; than name came later.”

The book is out of print, but I ordered an inexpensive used copy from Amazon.com.  Can hardly wait to see the real thing!

A few days ago, Guillermo Luna (aka @guillermoluna8) posted the following beautiful photo of the Shafer Canyon Trail on Instagram.  I have posted it here with his permission.

Can you see the #YellowJeep way down below?

Shafer Canyon Trail

The Shafer Trail is 37 miles long, snaking through Canyon Lands National Park near Moab, Utah. This trail is definitely on my bucket list – definitely worth working for.

#YellowJeep Incentive Photos

From June 13th to 16th, 2015, we held the fourth annual Dixon Family Reunion (#DFR15) in Pinetop-Lakeside, Arizona   On Monday morning, we traveled about 45 miles east of Lakeside to a beautiful mountain meadow along Forest Service Road 117 between Highways 60 and 260.  

Forest117

My son brought a couple of RZR ATVs so we could go wandering along a plethora of mountain trails with gorgeous scenery.  Silly me, after all this time not earning my Yellow Jeep! I took several photos of trails and meadows and tall pines – I will call these photos my “Yellow Jeep Incentive Collection!”.  I need to think of this gorgeous area when I am tempted to overeat!

Here are a few photos.  The rest of the collection can be found on SmugMug.

Don’t you agree – wouldn’t this be better in a #YellowJeep?
