About Me

Hello my friends. My name is Travis Bishop and I'm the owner/operator of Big Jeep Tours.

My family moved to Bisbee from Texas in 1913 to work for the Phelps Dodge Mining Company in search of copper riches.

I was born in Bisbee in 1966 at the Warren Clinic which was across the street from the Warren Ballpark.  All of Bisbee's mining operations were still active. Today, the Chiricahua Community Hospital operates out of the same building. 

I grew up, went to school, and participated in all sports imaginable for for the local Bisbee Schools (Greenway Elementary, Lowell, and Bisbee High School).

I started high school in Bisbee undersized, unaccomplished in sports, and possessed every awkward characteristic imaginable. After a growth spurt of 10" in one year, I completed high school better in all sports, a good student, and somewhat prepared to enter the collegiate world.
