Derek over at The CJ3B website always has the most interesting articles! His recent article about the 1955 travels of a CJ3B from Brazil to the World Scout Jamboree 1955 to Alaska and back to Brazil is awesome! You have to check out the travels of these young men. It would be an incredible adventure today, but I cannot imagine what it was like in 1955!

If the horse drawn wagons crossed the continent in 1800s,a Willys jeep would find itself in his natural play ground on this same continent in 1950s.

I was looking for information about 3 young men who went from Brazil to Alaska by jeep in 1960 or there abouts. I was living in Botucatu, State of Sao Paulo, at the time. I only know 1 of their names, it was Darcy Nogueira. I have a picture of them before they left on their trip that I could email you. Let me know if you know anything about this trip.

The CJ3B website has the most information I have seen at http://www.film.queensu.ca/CJ3B/Finds/FindsPineapple.html and some more photos. Would love to hear if you find any more information!
