    VIDEO : Exploring Nevada's Explosive Past - Lunar Crater & Project Faultless

    Pretty much right in the middle of the State of Nevada and about half way between the towns of Tonopah and Ely, there lies two off-road destinations about 20 miles apart and both of which were created by massive explosions. The first is a huge bowl shaped hole in the ground known as the Lunar Crater and the second is the location of a nuclear test site known as, Project Faultless. In this short video, you'll get to follow us on our adventure to explore these two, unique to Nevada sites, with our good friends Tony and Stephanie and in our trusty little Jeep Renegades.

    This is the first in a series of new short videos we hope to produce highlighting the rich history and the amazing places you can see in our beautiful state or, what we like to refer to as, Nevada's Silver Lining. We hope that you enjoy our presentation.



    Special thanks goes out to our good friends Tony and Stephanie for helping us to film the footage that you see in this video.

    That was such a fun adventure! We really need to get back out there and do some more exploring!

    Especially since our little Renegade mowed down all the sage brush in the middle of the trail!

    It really is totally nuts. What's even crazier is that just shy of a thousand feet below your feet, there's 500,000 metric tons of highly radioactive rubble with radiation levels close to that of a nuclear reactor

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.
