A Positive Step Forward!

It took over 4 years of saving money for a down payment, but in August, I got a Jeep Patriot.  Just yesterday, I received my vanity plate so there may be additional “positive steps” going forward.

Special thanks to the crew at Tristar Motors.  Zachary Stuck did most of the paperwork, but Shawn O’Barto, sold me the Jeep and literally went an extra mile and a half to not only take me to my bank so I could transfer funds but also to my Allstate agent to work with Gwen Riley and Dave Covato.


When I was applying for my plate, SHUT UP was already taken, so adding the “J” for “John” works for me!  Hope you laugh!


I made a special “gray version” of a plate for the front of the Jeep.

My name is John Burkhart and I reside in Indiana, Pennsylvania. For over 25 years, I worked in Visual Merchandising and Store Design for different companies across America. I have lived and worked in San Diego, Phoenix, Dallas, Atlanta, Tampa, Honolulu, Boston, and Richmond. In 2000, I went home to help my parents. For the back story, go to Youtube, type: John Burkhart on the search line and see a video that Sean Yoder and James Nestor at the Indiana Gazette did over 2 years ago. Be that as it may, in an effort to be/stay productively busy, I was told I should transfer some of my visual and written humor from my apartment walls to a blog. It is all new to me but I hope that you see/read my blog, get a laugh or two and let me know what you think. Looking forward to any and all comments!
