Jeepin’ in the USVI

Sorry for the lack of posts over the past month or so.  Between our super-busy holiday season at JeepWorld.com and a sibling’s wedding in St. John, USVI it was a wild December.  The USVI, St. John in particular, is still a bit of a rugged and wild place.  The roads are narrow, steep, slippery, and often come with goats or donkeys blocking your way making this a perfect place for Jeeps.

Jeeps are everywhere in the USVI.  Whether rentals to tourists or driven by locals, the majority of the vehicles we saw down there were Jeeps.   The rental JK Wranglers with 8,000 miles on them may as well have had 800,000 miles on them.  The roads of St. John encourage the pounding of the vehicle, but make for a fun ride along the way.

If there ever was a vehicle and place meant to be together, it’s a Jeep Wrangler and St. John USVI.  The laid back attitudes and rugged nature of both compliment one another perfectly.  You’d be surprised at how fast you get used to driving on the left side, although I caught myself driving on the left when we got home!

Well, if you can swing it, I’d highly recommend this trip.  Just fly into St. Thomas and you can rent a Jeep there and take the car ferry to St. John.  Or take the commuter ferry and rent once you’re already on the island.  From there it’s a short Jeep trip to some of the most beautiful beaches in the world.  Have fun out there!
