Thank You For What You Do Every Day! Plans for 2019 are already underway and interest about the overall group is constantly growing. With thousands of members, Latta says each event the group hosts brings out different people – and different Jeeps. On a random Tuesday night during the summer Latta organized an impromp- tu ice cream social on the north side of Terre Haute. More than 50 Jeeps packed the parking lot; new and old, beat-up and vintage Jeeps with owners as diverse as their vehicles. Latta jokes that the group has created lasting friendships and even a love match. Group member Jen Murphy says she met Scott Mayfield at one of the Jeep events in 2017. The couple has now been together about a year and shares a passion for Jeeps. Murphy, who is known with her Jeep as “The Raven” says the only drawback to the relationship, is deciding which Jeep to drive; his or hers. “We want to go together, but we also both want to drive our own Jeeps,” Murphy says with a laugh. “This group, it is just amazing. I consider these peo- ple my family.” Tammy Meng, who drives the “Silver Bullet,” agrees that the Jeep Junkies go beyond just a hobby or special interest.
