From staff reports

A five-year Jeep expedition around the world that was recounted in a Spokesman-Review column by Doug Clark will be on display Friday.

Loren and Patty Upton will be at the Dishman Dodge Showroom on East Sprague for a free 7 p.m. Friday public presentation of their travels.

Their Jeep will be on display as the Uptons share the details of their journey, said their nephew Laurence Upton.

“It’s just an amazing story,” Laurence Upton said of the journey in red 1966 CJ-5 Jeep.
