Send Your Thoughts To Gavan

Hello JKO..

I am sure most of you have read about the horrible tragedy that occurred to a fellow wheeler, Gavan Young from Pirate4x4. If not, then read..

http://www.pirate4x4.com/forum/showthread.php?t=1073751

And our own thread here on JKO..

https://www.jkowners.com/forum/showthread.php?t=77239

Its is hard to fully wrap your head around this kind of sudden loss and if it has been forefront on my mind the last few days, I am sure it has been for many of you as well.

This community is a fickle beast.. we will eat our own for what seems like the sheer fun of it... flame a n00b for asking dumb questions.. ridicule a blinged out rig.. torch a vendor for shipping out product a day late.. but all of that is counter balanced by what this community does when one of our own falls or suffers. The generosity we have witnessed throughout the years here on JKO/Pirate is awe inspiring. This community will circle its wagons for someone no matter what rig they wheel, or what forum they participate in, and that is what I think sets us apart as a community.

We may not know Gavan, but hopefully through this effort.. Gavan will know us, and know that there are some people out here who have been touched with a comparatively miniscule amount of his pain but would happily carry more for him if possible.

Let him know what kind of community he belongs to;

Send a card, or a personal note to

Pirate Media Group
C/O Gavan Young
PO Box 5395
El Dorado Hills, CA 95762


It has been suggested that you can include a single dollar in your card as a token of support and that those dollars, when added together by the number of people in this community, would bring some financial relief to Gavan.. buy some groceries, or make a payment on a bill, etc.. You can of course include whatever amount you like.

Thank you JKO.. I can't imagine a better group of souls to ask this of.

Card is sitting on the counter to be mailed tomorrow. What a horrific event. It makes me emotional to see the community come together to hold a brother up.

Just joined today. I couldn't keep a dry eye reading that. As a married man and father of 2 daughters I could not imagine the strength it must take to go on after something like that. I wish you peace and strength in your time of tremendous need.

Wow, I don't even know what to say. Less than half way through his story my eyes started tearing up. I'm very sorry for your loss Gavin. I could never imagine something like that happening. As soon as I get off work Friday (48 hr duty) there will be a card in the mail on the way.

We had a scare last year on august 5 however with a miraculous result.

This was my wife on the way to her ob appointment. She was 26 weeks pregnant at the time. I believe the jeep saved both their lives.

I cannot imagine what he must be going through, to have your nightmare realized instead of being as lucky as we were. My heart goes out to him.

today's the first I'd seen it

Man my stomach's got that knot/twist feeling reading that story.

I support the military, fiscal responsibility, Hemp, legalization of Marijuana over 21, smaller government and the Bill of Rights.
