TEAM 112

car

VEHICLE: Toyota 4Runner // CLASS: 4X4

When Julie was asked by JPFreek Adventure Magazine’s editor, Eric Walton, to drive for Team JPFreek she immediately knew she wanted Jennifer as her navigator. Cousins by marriage, they credit their respective husbands for infecting them with the love of off-road Jeeping. They share a passion for outdoor adventures, writing and being willing to try (almost) anything once. They are both tenacious, undaunted by challenges, and have similar communication styles, so they know they will work well together.
