Our good buddy Patrick Hughes logged onto the ATJ Blog just the other day and asked whether GTD13 would happen to fall on the date of May 11 this time around, citing rumors that have floated about craigslist.
It's an issue that's buzzing around message boards, and deserves some clarification.
As you can see by this year's new GTD banner, the "official" Go Topless Day is, in fact, May 18. Naturally, a day of such freedom as Go Topless Day can hardly be contained to a single day, any easier than it may be limited to a single event (which it cannot, by the way). We believe Mr. Hughes was speaking of the New Hampshire-based event over at Backwoods Farms, which will indeed occur on May 11.
If you haven't already put it together, that's great news for New Englanders, because you can easily go to the NH event, then to the Ocean State Jeepsters event in MA the following weekend.
Remember back when you were a kid and wished on a star for an extra Christmas? It's finally happened, and you have North Country Rock Solid 4x4 to thank for organizing the 5/11 event. Naturally, ATJ will be at both events, and will be there in spirit at the numerous other events to be staged nation-wide. Stay tuned for info on the 5/18 GTD.
Valentine's Day Fun
It may be fun to go topless in May, but at the beginning of February, it's cold. It's hard to even think about going topless. But you know what's easy to think about? Valentine's day. Yup, it's right around the corner, again, and yup, I heard you groan.
The good news is, we have all sorts of paraphernalia for you to buy your sweetheart — and if you order now, you can even pretend like you didn't forget. The truly strange thing is that the phrases "You Make my Heart Rev" and "Let's Hook Up" are not currently inscribed on any known brand of conversational heart. We checked.
The candy companies' loss, however, is your ATJ-wear gain. What's more, each of these shirts has a matching pair of sweats, echoing identical sentiments. So you can lounge comfortable in cold, crisp February with your feelings about your honey on your sleeve. Body. Whatever.
These are just a few ways to celebrate your love, ATJ style. Not to neglect the dozens of heart-filled Jeep designs available year-round. There is no reason to contain the expression of 4x4 love.
Of course, sweatpants and nifty T-shirts can only go so far to warm the heart. True love needs more than just comfortable and snazzy around-the-house wear. Something genuine, solid and real. Something like this cool dry-erase board that's free with every order over $75 until Feb. 14. Free shipping on those $75+ orders, too.
Naturally, there are more goodies to be found on the website, which we know you'll visit soon, anyway. Stay with us for GTD13 updates and other exciting Jeep Things that they wouldn't understand.
