    Road of Bones, etc...

    So here i am in Japan on another deployment, thousands of miles from my Jeep. If im not working or at the gym, im watching videos of crazy adventures around the world. So i just had a crazy idea.
    What if the JKX did a trip to somewhere like the Road of Bones? Or maybe if some people here were interested in a trip like that. It would be an awesome trip, and i would love to be a part of it. Just wondering if anyone else has ever considered doing trips like that?

    I'm traveling around Japan at the moment currently in Kyoto and have only seen maybe 2 or 3 jeeps and bugger all 4x4s except for Mercedes G wagens. Is there anywhere to go off road here? Doesn't really look like it from what I've seen.

    I have considered it and would love to run the kolyma highway or the pamir highway, hell even just doing something like the budapest to bamako rally would rock .. sadly like a lot of folks, My pockets are nowhere near deep enough to make any of them a reality. .. but Yes it would be one hell of trip.

    Ewan McGregor and Charlie Boorman did the Road of Bones on bikes for a show called The long way Round. That whole trip looked like it would be fun in a Jeep.

    Ya I've been following a show on YouTube, and he travels the world on a KTM. But all of these trips would be awesome in a Jeep too.

    Since the series (also check out race to Dakar, and long way down). They rebuilt most of the road due to increased tourism and usage. They rerouted it and now is shorter and the old part is completely abandoned. Def a bucket list item to try one day....

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.
