Excellent mountain tour. It looks like you were driving on a ski slope. (The snow making towers were turned off though). :lol:

Hello,
Looks like a cold winter coming to your area !
Do you know if the the Hotel Post still exist or where it was ?
Have you taken any pictures in front of it with the jeep ?
Maybe the hotel has some old pictures of your jeep as well ?

Hello 70th division!

I know the hotel, but in the sixties changed the owner, and no pictures available. Unfortunately


I think it is the dream every willys owner to find old photos , best of the war times...

but it is verry difficult to read the hood numbers on war time pictures..

Hello,

Thanks for posting these additional photos of your exciting looking jeep trip !!!
I am amazed at looking at your jeep, living the life that all WW2 jeeps deserve, and looking back at its condition,
as an abandoned pile of parts , nuts and bolts, and what you have accomplished in bringing this great jeep back to life !!!!

A job, very well done !!

Please post more pictures of future expeditions !!

Is that last pic next to an old volcano ???


Best Regards,
