The Jeep WaveJuly 13, 2016 5:49 pm
I drive a Jeep. It is the best vehicle I have ever owned.
Going everywhere is an adventure! Even to the grocery store.
Before I bought my Jeep I had no idea of the “Jeep Wave”. Once I bought my Jeep I noticed that every Jeep I passed waved to me, so I waved back. I have since discovered it is a ‘thing’ – the waving between Jeep owners – it is called the “Jeep Wave”!!!
The Jeep Wave:
‘When two Jeep Wranglers pass each other on opposite sides of the road, one of the drivers initiates the wave and the other waves back symbolism some sort of bondage between jeep owners’. – Urban Dictionary
For me this is AMAZING! I get a “hit” is positive human contact without ever having to engage with another human being!!!! It makes my day every time I pass a Jeep!!!
When I was drinking, I used to take a book into a bar to get some human contact without having to engage. Now I jump in my Jeep and get friendly human contact through the wave every time I leave my house…. Even if it is only to the grocery store!
