    When Things Go Wrong

    I've found it really helpful to watch videos of when offroading goes wrong. Videos of tricked out Jeeps climbing huge obstacles sometimes make it look super easy and it's a good reminder to me to watch a video when things didn't go well and analyze what went wrong.

    Throw up any video you have that'd be helfpul for newcomers or just a good reminder to ol timers to always take the trail seriously.

    Here is one to get us started.

    What went wrong: too much skinny pedal and a poor spotter

    It's always a difficult decision to entrust someone you've never met before to spot you on an obstacle that you've never been on...

    YEP! Also, driver was focused on spotter with 100% trust. I usually trust a spotter whom has solid hand movements and i know, but always stop and check myself, talk it over and come up with a plan before its executed. I like this topic because I'm always a little worried in a two door. I feel like its gonna roll over on everything with a steep approach.

    Too much Jeep and not enough driver is a big problem in the off-roading world!! 😬

    That decision isn't so difficult when the spotter is experienced. You know whether or not they are at the first obstacle. That guy was awful and looked like that was his first time spotting the way he was waving all over the place. He looked like the General in the control tower trying to land Buddy Hackett & Mickey Rooney's plane in "It's a Mad Mad World!

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.
