    Missing my jeep.

    It's been three months now since I had to part ways with my JK, I moved up to a small mountain town that is a perfect area for a jeeper, unfortunately we need for room and towing capacity then the jk could provide.

    These were taken up near the top of canoe mountain, in the last pic you can see the town of valemount off to the left.

    Sucks about having to get rid of the jeep, but that sure looks like an amazing place to live

    That's a real nice area to bad you don't have the jeep, but you have to drive what suites your needs the best.

    Nice Pics.....

    Wow, beautiful country! I could look at those photos all day.
    You guys probably laugh at what we call mountains here in Western PA compared to those!

    edit: meaning the 'mountains' on the western third of the state.

    Awesome place! I had to go back and see you were located in BC...which explains the Blitz - I wouldn't imagine they were something you'd find in the US.

    It's a beautiful place to live, lots of back country and not a lot of people.

    I know the feeling man! I just traded in my jeep on a Mini Cooper. I am driving so much for school it just saved a ton of money.
    I plan on getting another one but it makes me sad every time I see another jeep and they are everywhere here.

    I did exactly that three years ago for the same reason. My Rubicon JKU was killing me in fuel. I just ordered a 16 Hard Rock and goodbye Mini.

    It was a fun car, but I just couldn't get over the loss of my Jeep. A word of warning...dealers and regional markets can be tough on the trade in values on a Cooper. One dealer had me drive 3 hours only to tell me the used car manager didn't like Mini's.

    Doesn't like Minis! And u drove 3 hrs to find that out.....What a a$$ hat.

    My wife rocks a JCW very fast and fun car to drive. We sure are at opposite ends of the scale but that's ok, good contrast.

    Enjoy the new hard rock!

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.
