The Jeep Jaunt is a charity event that raises money for the American Lung Association. The Jeep Jaunt has been going on for several years and each year more and more people attend.
The ride is approximately 35 miles from start to finish with a police escort. It starts and the Celebrity Theaters in Broussard and goes to the Cypress Bayou Casino in Charenton.
The Jeep Jaunt is open to ALL four wheel drive vehicle. If you have never participated in it, I would highly recommend going, it is a lot of fun.
Jeep Jaunt 2012
On October 28, 2012 the Toyota club I belong to (Bayou State Land Cruiser Association) was asked to participate in the 2012 Jeep Jaunt. Once we (our club) got on location, they placed our Toyota's at the front of the event before the ride to our final destination. Later our club was asked to be the "road warriors" for the ride. The "road warriors" assist local law enforcement in blocking roads in certain areas to allow all 300+ Jeeps to pass through without being held up. It was an honor and a lot of fun to participate in this event. Thanks guys.

Jeep Jaunt, 2013
On October 20, 2013 our Toyota club (Bayou State Land Cruiser Association) attended the Jeep Jaunt for a second year. This year there were about 400+ vehicles that attended. From start to finish, it took about 3 hours for all vehicle to drive +/- 35 miles. Again, it was an honor and a lot of fun to participate in this event. Thank you, I look forward to doing it again next year.
