Jeeps… Jeeps… and more Jeeps!

Jeep the Mac: Leading the Bridge Crossing
Leading the Bridge Crossing

by Jim Hopper

It was a Jeep Thing in St. Ignace on Friday, April 22nd, as over 400 Jeeps showed their pride in the first annual Jeep the Mac two day event.

After the blessing of the Jeeps in Mackinaw City, the parade of proud owners crossed the Mackinac Bridge and gathered at the St. Ignace Little Bear Arena for a meet-n-greet lunch and beer and wine tasting.

On Saturday April 23rd the Jeep caravan rolled up to Drummond Island for the Spring Jeep Migration. After crossing on the ferry to the island, riders enjoyed jeeping through 100 miles of closed loop trails.

Next up… Mini-Coopers, ATVs and farm tractors, all who are attempting to claim or hold the title for the largest number as a group to cross the mighty Mackinac Bridge!
