I live in Georgia is the wave is alive and well here. I would say that 95% of the Jeep driver that I wave to wave back. Maybe is good ole Southern hospitality.

NOPE, it is probably the types of roads you drive on. I find country roads regardless of what type of vehicle you are in from experience while visiting my sister in Little Hocking, Ohio, provided an abundance of waves from everybody and at the time of my many visits I was driving a Caravan and before that a Tracer wagon.

Difficult driving roads either in highly populated areas or ones that wind a lot require more concentration on what is happening in front of you and thus your wave return count will be less.

agreed... a lot of times I miss a wave simply because some moron in front of me is breaking way to fast/late/early/or no reason at all or changing lanes without any sign of a blinker... yeah, MA drivers... not great

Here is another factor of waving that I hadn't become aware of until my son pointed it out to me. When I wave...and I am paying attention to traffic...I tend to glance at the other driver for the return wave trying to make sure that I don't make any dumb moves whilst driving. Well, several times I've commented aloud about the jeeper not waving and my son would say yes they did you just didn't see it. That has happened too often to be ignored in the wave return count. You see, you are probably getting more return waves than you think but you just have to be an eagle to see them all.

I'm in the ne part of OK, and very seldom does anybody wave around here, and there are lots of jeeps this way. I have all but given up on waving at jeep drivers. Now when I am cruising on my motorcycle, almost all other bikers wave. There dosen't seem to be the same comradery amongst jeep drivers.

The wave with motorcycles is a lot more visible and therefore easier to know you are being waved at and most people in general return waves when they notice them.

Agreed, across the border in SC its still holding on pretty strong. I was well aware of it when I got my JK as I used to drive a 97 Sahara. It seems those driving the new JK tend to be those who fail to wave, but it may just be that they are unfamiliar with the culture just yet.
