Canada Day Jeep parade in the nation's capital - who's in?
Just in case people aren't reading the Wranglers in Ontario thread, who would be up for decking out their Jeep in flags and going for a topless, doorless and anything else you like-less convoy through town, taking in the sights of Elgin, Preston, the Market if possible, and anywhere else that we could drive slowly, hoot, holler and generally attract attention to ourselves and our awesome vehicles?
Dan2012 quite rightly and properly insisted that the only way it could possibly be allowed to happen is if it finished at a pub somewhere, but it would be a bit crap if there were only two or three of us. In fact that wouldn't really be a parade at all, it would just be a couple of blokes taking a long route to the pub. So, hands up - who's in for this?

Me. Calendar says Canada Day is a monday so I can attend! Let's see some more hands! I got a few buddies at work (ehh....5 or 6) that drive Jeeps so I'll hit them up as well.

Bumping this thread to keep it active. C'mon, O-Town and driving-distance jeepers! Let's show our pride in our rides and our country!

if its the Monday i dunno if i can make it... id love to join you guys but that's alot of driving to go and drive around Ottawa. definitely wouldn't be hitting a pub later either. that's 2ish hours there, then parade, then 2ish hours back for me.

This is going well. The only conclusion I can draw is that you're all unpatriotic ingrates who hate hockey, maple syrup and free healthcare.

Well, I'm still going to deck my jeep out in the maple leaf and drive around town. Nobody's gonna put the kybosh on my fun. I'll just do it in my own community instead. Jeez, I bet if this was the US forum we'd have 50 jeeps on board already.

I might be down for this if I'm in town! I've got a big flag I can rig up too.

Sweet. There's also a user called wrangler_ottawa, I'll PM him and see if he's up for it.

Be nice if we could get 10 jeeps on the road for this thing (at least). I'll post something at work this week and see if I can't get some guys out.
