    Tallest Building in the World

    Because of my job I get a chance to travel to some really out of the way and very austere places. Every now and again I work in a not so bad place such as Dubai, U.A.E. Although the summer is definitely not the best time to enjoy it, it's still the craziest ultra modern, man made and architecturally interesting destination I am in and out every year. Its virtually the polar opposite of our jeep lifestyle! I finally got a chance to get up to the observation deck of the Burj Khalifa (ref: latest Mission Impossible movie), just a couple of photos from the 124th floor of a 160 floor building. Sorry, but these are iPhone shots, I travel light!

    I think it has something to do with 100+ temps and humidity to match. It's freaking brutally oppressive right now. The malls are full though

About us
“wayoflife” is a moniker that I’ve been using for 20 years now and I chose it because I think it does a great job of explaining, in simple terms, the passion I have for Jeeps and the Jeep way of life. This is a lifestyle that transcends age, gender and race as the only thing you need to be a part of it is a love for the outdoors, a desire to explore, a yearning to take on a challenge and a will to conquer it. Over the years, Cindy and I have attempted to capture the essence of this lifestyle through photographs and videos and share it with others around the world. And, this is how WAYALIFE was born.
