    ROADSIDE AMERICA : Awesome Roadside Stops Along the Way!

    A few miles west of Dodge City is a place where you can park and check out part of the Santa Fe Trail, tracks are mostly gone but you can still see some of the indentions made by the wagons.IMG_0975.jpgIMG_0969.jpgIMG_0971.jpg

    This is a path that takes you down into
    what was called Soule's Ditch supposed to be a canal that brought water from the Arkansas river into the area for farmers, due to evaporation, flooding, leakage and a busted dam it was never successful. IMG_0972.jpgThis is a path that will take you down to it

    This path takes you farther into the field so you can see other parts of the trail that are mostly visibleIMG_0973.jpg

    IMG_0971.jpg part of the visitor "center" that explains what you're looking at, not a lot to it but an interesting stop to stretch your legs.

    Here we have the La Salsa Muffler Man, he is one of two muffler men that Dennis Hopper had commissioned for an art exhibit. He donated them to the city when he died in 2010. IMG_0984.jpg

    Lucy the elephant in Margate City, NJ which was used originally to show off land when the town was being built. It was then a house at one point, a bar, and is now a tourist attraction where you can take a tour. I forget where but she has a sister which I think is smaller.

    “Dogs are our link to paradise. They don't know evil or jealousy or discontent. To sit with a dog on a hillside on a glorious afternoon is to be back in Eden, where doing nothing was not boring--it was peace.”

    “Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn't do than by the ones you did do...
    Explore. Dream. Discover."

    "Take a compass, because it's always awkward when you have to eat a friend."

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.
