So true. My neighbors stared in disbelief as I drove down, and then back up my 950 foot long sloped driveway, without so much as removing one flake of the snow we just got including the big pile at the end that the town trucks deposited. That portion was a nail biter but she made it. Of course I was carrying my 90 pound Lab in the back for added traction weight.
I bet that made the difference! I bring the kids with me for the same reason. They love it.
Took the kids sledding Saturday morning and on the way back took the long way through a Tobacco field trail that was not plowed. The kids loved it and the jeep had no issues going through 10+ inches of snow. To your point the end of the trail was a pile of snow the plow truck left so I just gave it more skinny pedal and went right through!!
I'm in Wallingford and get about a 50/50 mix of waves. Most of the non wavers seem to be older guys, soccer moms and younger girls. It does seem like its more of a JK thing though, almost all of the CJ,YJ and TJ's wave. I just keep waving and don't let the non wavers bother me much. My 6 y/o daughter even waves and points out the people who don't wave back. All she says about them is "They just don't get it daddy" LOL!
SWMBO and I day-tripped RI last Saturday. I was got maybe 1 wave for every 3 Jeeps we saw, and there were a bunch. Meh, whatever. I waved.

I'm in Trumbull and I got my first wrangler about 2 months ago - 2010 JKU Mountain. I love it! There are quite a few wranglers on the road here, especially on nice days. I get waves about 75% of the time, and I wave when I'm not zoned out (playing with phone/radio). I'm thinking sometimes oncoming wrangler drivers don't see me wave, just a few fingers off the wheel.
