Teresa is from North Idaho where she works for the Moyie Mudbog as an event/marketing coordinator. She’s owned many Jeeps for many years (more years than she’ll admit to). She spends most of her time either four wheeling, at mud bogs, races, or fixing one of her 5 Jeeps or her 76 International Scout 2. Recently she competed on the new History Channel hit show, “Truck Night in America”. It was one of the best experiences of my life.

This Week In Jeep:
Jeep JL Test Vehicle Erupts in Flames
It’s been making automotive news all over the place this week. A Jeep JL Wrangler caught on fire at the FCA Headquarters in Auburn Hills, Michigan, The silver JL Wrangler was sporting manufacturer plates (noted by the “M” on the plates) which is consistent with a Jeep test vehicle. The Auburn Hills location is also home to the Chrysler Technology Center, where new vehicles and experimental automotive technologies are frequently tested. The Wrangler caught on fire and the flames nearly engulfed the test Jeep. FCA security rushed to the scene to secure the site and the roads surrounding the burning Wrangler were shut down temporarily. It’s been making automotive news all over the place this week.

Not Jeepers, but they get a big jeep wave for doing the right thing.
The Jeep had just left the Dollar General Store on Highway 63 outside of Waterloo Iowa and was heading south when the driver noticed a light on the dash warning her that a door was ajar. She pulled the Jeep off the highway onto the right hand shoulder, stopped and turned on her hazard lights. Thats when 9yr old Dylan exited the front passenger seat to close the back door. That is at least according the accident report that was filed after what happened next. Adam Hoffman, was traveling south on U.S. Highway 63/Logan Avenue around 3:35 p.m. when the Toyota minivan in front of him clipped a stopped Jeep Compass on the side of the road, veering to avoid the spray of debris and the minivan careening across all lanes and into a field…. He was shocked to see the Jeep that had just been struck roll onto 9yr old Dylan, trapping him. Hoffman and another passing motorist, Joe Edwards of Waterloo, immediately stopped to lend help. When Joe ran up to the scene, he realized what had happened. ‘We got to get this off of him.’ he said. Joe and Adam ran over and pushed the Jeep back onto its wheels, freeing the young boy. “We just tipped the vehicle back up and then called 911,” Edwards said. “We pushed it up and got it uprighted,” Hoffman said. “I just had to put my mind to it. It was what we had to do.
I am a Licensed Social Worker and have worked in the mental health field for 6 years. I have a Masters in Social Work with a concentration in Military families and Veterans. I am an advocate for suicide prevention/awareness and have worked in addictions. I have 4 daughters, 2 step children and 1 grandson, 1 on the way. I have been happily engaged to my Fiancé for 7 years. I am fairly new to the Jeep life, even though I had always wanted one. We bought mine a year ago as my 40th birthday gift but it was soon all too clear that this was the passion and excitement that I needed in my life. I enjoy photography, travel and I’m always looking for my next adventure. I have enjoyed growing in my knowledge and experience in the jeep world and meeting some amazing people supporting some amazing causes.
