The 8th annual Jeep Jaunt lead by JayCee Falcon and the Falcon family was held this past Sunday and now this family friendly event has it's own day!

After losing their mother to asthma, the Falcon family has turned a tragic event in their lives into a day of fun and excitement for jeep lovers, 4 x4 owners, outdoors-men/women, and just regular folks.  While at the same time raising money for the American Lung Association.
