    Thanks! There really are some amazing things to see out there but gas or the lack there of is something you REALLY need to be concerned with

    Especially since our little Renegade mowed down all the sage brush in the middle of the trail!
    It was a great trip for sure and we definitely need to get back out there before all the grass grows back

    What's really astounding is that the devastating geological damage from the test included the creation of several new deep faults and that it led to the cancellation of the entire project.

    Holy hell! That's crazy! I wonder what the half life on that area underneath is? I know as of recently chernoble hit a level where it's semi safe to go in with full protection. Makes me wonder if anyone would be willing to explore the tube and underneath

    I had no idea you could drive out to the test site. My dad was there when they set it off. I really need to get out there. Thanks for the video!

    Honestly, there are signs everywhere that specifically warn against digging or collecting of rocks in the area. I'd really like to get a geiger counter and go out there again just to see how radioactive it is

    Well, this particular test was conducted outside of the Nevada Test Site. That's where "most" of the nuclear tests were conducted.

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.
