Another Jeep Go Topless Weekend

Another Jeep Weekend on Bolivar has come and gone. The gathering of jeepers and jeep lovers has grown exponentially the last couple of years. Since it’s origin in 2008, the Jeep “Go Topless Day” has evolved to produce a constant parade of vehicles, jamming the beach and surrounding areas for the weekend. And “go topless” did not only refer to removing your jeep top. This year, the high tides limited
