    FCA pulls out of 2020 Easter Jeep Safari

    https://www.autoblog.com/2020/03/13/fca-no-easter-jeep-safari/

    FCA told media Friday that it is pulling out of the 2020 Easter Jeep Safari, a beloved annual off-roading event in Moab, Utah, that takes place over nine days and ends Easter Sunday. Jeep has been a staple participant throughout the years, using it to showcase wild and much-beloved concept vehicles.

    The news isn't all bad. Autoblog reached out to FCA to ask whether we'll see this year's concepts elsewhere, and while a Jeep spokesperson reassured us that the concepts will still get their moment in the spotlight, they haven't quite yet figured out exactly when or where.

    Also, it should be noted that even though Jeep won't officially be participating, the Easter Jeep Safari itself will go on as planned. In fact, the city council of the tourism-driven town of Moab voted Wednesday to defeat a measure that would have put restrictions on large gatherings, The Salt Lake Tribute reported.

    For the time being, at least, the Safari is a go.

    Meanwhile, Ohio has closed all schools (probably for the remainder of the school year), closed all dine in restaurants and bars, and banned gatherings. One town near Columbus, Ohio ordered its residents to check their temperatures daily. Not sure how they plan to regulate that one. Better buy your thermometers quick. You don’t want to be the one that goes to the store and only finds the rectal versions. Lol

    Yeah i'm really surprised they didn't cancel it! Maryland closed everything. Many of us have the option to telework. This makes sense since schools are closed. Day 2 and i'm already going stir crazy. Alternating working and watching the boy is really tough. My camper is supposed to arrive this week and if it actually does, I'd be surprised, but maybe i'll set up the router and just go camping and having fun working from the middle of nowhere. The rain and dreary isn't helping. I'm literally going insane. Hope everyone else is fairing better.

    My first reaction was to find a picture describing what you just wrote. Then I realized I’d probably violate some rules on here lol.

    Omg. It looks like it wraps around and goes straight up her back. Well, that’s how I envision it would look like....I didn’t google it.

    I don’t know how they managed in the 70’s. There’s so much unknown in that foliage.
