    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.

    It's been a while since Moby's been to SEMA and really for a good reason. Moby is almost 10 years old, is far from the new and shiny Jeep that he once was and let's face it, he's been used hard and has the scars to ...

    Last week, Cindy I got a call from our good friends Chris and Jen and they wanted know if we might want to hook up with them to do some ghost town exploring in the Northern Nevada desert. The idea was to meet up in Tonopah on Thursday night and then work our way up to Virginia City while making stops along the way to explore some of the many ghost towns and mining camps in the area. And, as luck would have it, our good friends Tony and Stephanie decided to meet up with us in Virginia City as well if only for a day and just to have some fun. Anyway, it isn't much but, here are a handful of photos that we took from our trip.

    In just ONE WEEK, the worlds largest auto show dedicated to the manufacturers of specialty equipment will be taking place in Las Vegas, Nevada. Of course, I'm talking about the one and only SEMA Show and really is the one show that everyone wants to be a part of. Unfortunately, SEMA is for vendors and those in the industry only and unless you know someone who can get you in, it's not something that most people can attend... well, at least not physically anyway.

    Starting Sunday, November 1st, Cindy and I will be covering the 2015 SEMA Show LIVE and invite you to join us virtually by following us here on! You can be sure we'll be covering EVERYTHING Jeep related and more with TONS of detailed Hi-Res photos. Of course, if there's anything in particular you'd like to see, please let us know and we'll be sure keep an eye out for it.

    We hope you'll mark your calendars and join us for the 2015 SEMA Show!!
