Jeep Privileges Events

Hi All, I'm sure many of you have heard of or taken part in events organised under the old banner of Jeep Privileges - see attached 2003 brochure cover.


I took part in 3 of their advertised events, the Picos in Northern Spain in 2001, Ballahoura Forest in Ireland 2002, and Euro Jeep Camp in Valle d'Aosta in NW Italy in 2003. I was living and working in Geneva during this period so the Italian event was 'just around the corner' for me.


To come to my point I have just uploaded photos of the 3 events to my Flikr account so I thought you might be interested to see events of more than 15 years ago. I have to say that if Jeep Privileges started again tomorrow I would be first in the queue - no camping, just good food, good wine and good hotels linked together by a day out on the tracks. Not that cheap mind but great for a once a year extravagance. I think the Picos trip was the longest at about 6 or 7 days.


The trips were accompanied by 3 staff in 2 support vehicles. Thick polythene was stuck to the vehicles - a bit like thick cling film, to keep the worst of the muck and dust off.


At the time my Jeep was a 1996 4.0 GC Limited (ZJ). Black with gold badges, trim & wheel inserts, it can be seen in the photos with its Swiss (VD for canton Vaud) number plates.


Hope you find the photos of interest.

All the best

Chris R.
