    Okay, for those of you who don't live in California or Nevada and have no idea how bad the drought in our neck of the woods has been, this might seem a little over the top but for us, the snow pack up in the Sierra Nevada Mountains is where our water comes from and the more snow we can get, the better. Needless to say, it was super exciting to see some of the white stuff sticking around for the first time this winter and I can only hope to see more of it in the near future.

    That being said, I want to see pics of your Jeep in the snow but the catch is, I'd like to see ones that were taken during the winter of 2015-2016. Whether it's just a trace amount of a TON of snow, I'd like to keep this thread updated with as many current pics as possible just so that we can create a record of what this winter was like.

    It isn't everyday that we get a good snowfall in the middle of November but on this particular Wednesday, or should I say, Thanksgiving Eve, we got almost a foot of the white stuff. To celebrate this Wonderful White Wednesday, Cindy and I decided to bundle up and take Pappy, our 1954 Willys CJ3B out to play in it! That's right - out to play in freezing cold temperatures, with the snow still coming down hard and of course, with the doors and top off! Here's a short video that will show you just how much fun we had wheeling our Willys in the snow, we hope you enjoy.

    For those of you who are interested in getting a set of Nitto Mud Grapplers for your Jeep but wanted to know what they sound like on the highway, this short video clip will give you a better idea of just how loud they really are. So you know, we've made the clip long as I think you really need to hear the beehive buzzing in your head for a period of time to really appreciate the experience. I hope you enjoy.

    Still want a set?

    Back before the invention of GPS, radar or even rudimentary radio communication, there were brave pilots who flew across vast empty stretches of America using only a system of brightly painted concrete arrows and lights on top of towers to guide their way. These markers were established back in the 1920's by the United States Post Office and Department of Commerce and became known as the Transcontinental Airway Beacon System.

    Ever since Cindy and I first heard about these concrete arrows, we have spent have spent countless hours looking for and documenting as many of them as we can find. And, being that so many of them are located in the State of Nevada, we have chosen to highlight them in our very first episode of, Nevada Silver Lining - a new show we're working on that showcases all the cool places you can visit here in this amazing state. In this short trailer, you'll get a taste of what you can expect to see. We hope you enjoy.

    Being that it was my birthday last week, Cindy and I decided to drop what we were doing, load up our Jeep and head out to the Northern Nevada Desert to look for some concrete arrows, also known as, Transcontinental Airway Beacons. As some of you may know, we've been looking for and photographing these 50 ft. arrows and on occasion, towers as well for over two years now and on this trip, it was our hope to find a few located all the way out on the eastern edge of the state. Of course, it'd be near impossible for us to not explore some old ghost towns and do a bit of rock hounding along the way and in this thread, you'll get to see a little bit of all the things we got to see and do. I hope you enjoy

    With all the snow that we just got up in the Reno/Carson City area, Cindy and I were just itchin to get out and play in it. So, after taking care of some work, we packed up Rubicat and made our way over to a trail that starts on the west end of Reno and climbs up the eastern slope of the Sierra Nevada Mountains. Known to the locals as the Hunter Lake, ...

    It's hard to believe that it was a week ago that we arrived in Las Vegas, Nevada, to start covering the 2015 SEMA Show for all of you here on WAYALIFE. As was the case last year, the show was absolutely packed full of vehicles and I'd have to say that SEMA is really starting to look and feel like it had about 10 years ago. In fact, there were so many Jeeps at the show that I have no doubts that there were more than a few we missed in spite of our best efforts to capture all of them. And, if there was one you were hoping to see and we didn't get, I apologize for not being able to get around to it. That being said, I thought I would take a bit of time to highlight some of cool things we saw at the show and thought were worth noting.
