The Goal: To recoup funds spent on medical bills that were supposed to go towards getting the official Jeep Talk Show's NW99XJ back up and running. The head blew last summer, and took the radiator and water pump with it. Some of the parts have already been acquired, like the radiator. But all the head work came to a screeching hault when it was discovered I had an infection in part of the bone tissue of my upper jaw.
A trip to the hospital, a nasty invasive oral surgery, and two endodontist visits later, and all my savings and every last cent of the Jeep fund have been wiped out. With medical expenses still coming in, my main vehicle being recently stolen and recovered stripped of parts, and the bills which just keep piling up, I turn to the public and fans of The Jeep Talk Show for support. The money raised will go towards finishing off the repairs and getting the NW99XJ back up and running ready to visit shows and other offroad events on behlaf of The Jeep Talk Show. Any funds left over (after repairs are complete) will be donated to Tread Lightly! to help keep trails and public lands open for offroad use.
