We extend our appreciation to the Harbor Island Marina for their willingness to allow us to use their parking space as needed for overflow parking.  Due to the weather (we think), we didn’t need to overflow into their parking area – but they gladly offered it up and we greatly appreciate it!
We also need to thank the following Jeep Groups / Clubs who have supported us and helped to spread the word online:
