    Oscar's No Build Thread

    This is our last night of a five day camping trip to central Wisconsin. My daughter and I have been going camping together, just the two of us, two separate weeks during the summer, since she turned six. This is our eighth summer, 16th trip and it was packed with activities: fishing, mountain biking, hiking, swimming and of course Jeeping. After spending time with the other activities, today was finally Jeep Day and we would be heading to Northern Wisconsin to run the "Pipeline" and assorted service roads in the Nicolet National Forest.

    We started with 85 mile trek North-East to Suring and the southern most part of the Pipeline Trail. The trail here is not that good as it's all sand and really whooped out from ATV/UTV traffic. It was also really wet from recent rains.

    My daughter had a good time playing in the sand!

    We kept clear of the deep water and made our way north 10 miles where the pipeline temporary ends and National Forests begins.

    Most of the service roads were dry, but over grown so I'm sure I have some new custom pin stripes . Every once in a while we would run across a little mud.

    Toward the end of our 40 mile trip through the woods we came across this beautiful young birch forest.

    Such a beautiful place! Already excited for next year!

    Great pics. I carry a chainsaw for that exact reason. Had the same thing happen to me a few years back.

    Yes, baby snappers. We have a lot of them around here, but these are the smallest that I've ever seen. They almost got stepped on, because we thought they were leaves at first.

    Out for a solo hike today. My wife was just wiped because our daughter started school last week, swim club starts tomorrow and my mother in-laws birthday was this weekend. I, on the other hand, was not going to waste the last symbolic day of summer, so I loaded up and headed north. I ended up at the Ice Age Trail and decided to head north on foot for four miles:

    ImageUploadedByWAYALIFE1473128177.788200.jpg
    Along the way, I passed one of the five shelters along this stretch which means water:

    And facilities:

    No need to bring TP:

    The shelter isn't much, unless you need to get out of the rain:

    We would just pitch our tent off to the side:

    Found some trail art:

    And wild flowers:

    While resting at the turn around bench, I heard a loud crack and this tree came crashing down about a 100 yards away. Made me think of that old philosophical thought experiment "If a tree falls in a forest and no one is around to hear it, does it make a sound?" Still can't answer that!

    Fall colors are just starting to settle in:

    It was a good day for a walk in the woods!

    Continued my hike of the Ice Age Trail through the Kettle Moraine this afternoon. I started close to where I ended last weekend, overlapping 1/2 mile, continuing on for another 2 1/2 miles and then back again. Here are some of the views:
    View to the Southwest. The bump in the middle is a ski hill - yup, no mountains in Wisconsin!

    The golden rod and milk weed are in full bloom.

    I'm fortunate to have this recreation area just 30 minutes from my house. It's not much for Jeeping, but really great for hiking, mountain biking, camping, snow shoeing, and cross country skiing.

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.
