Jeeping is a hobbie I've literally never heard anyone name ever. COOL.
Jeeping is a relatively newer term. Used to be, "four wheeling." But the quads have definintely taken that term over. So "Jeeping" is likened to "full size off road." Not that the Toyota guys like the newer slang, lol. I picture it more like "Jeep" trail on a topo map. I can just see some old WWII CJ-2/MB bumbling along a rocky path. I will say you can get a thrill at 3mph. Amazing what these vehicles can do, even when not built up.
