    VIDEO : Route 66 Musical Road - Tijeras, New Mexico

    Just east of Albuquerque and near the village of Tijeras, New Mexico, there lies a length of Route 66 that has a series of grooves cut into it (also known as a rumble strip) and if you drive over them at exactly 45 MPH, the sound of your vibrating tires will play a portion of "America the Beautiful"! Apparently, this was a project that the National Geographic Society worked on in conjunction with the New Mexico Department of Transportation for a series they were doing called "Crowd Control" and the purpose of it was to develop a way to encourage drivers to slow down. In this short video, you'll get to see Cindy and I drive over this Musical Road in our Jeep Renegade and you'll get to hear the tune being played. Enjoy

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.
