    Forgot to buy a flag for the Sand Dunes.... This Shop Rag should work for now...

    Will mounting a flag on the Firestik Screw up my CB reception??

    You should be fine with radio signal, I run a flag on mine when wheeling with no issues.
    Build is looking good

    The Build & Travels of ORION

    Had a great weekend with friends at the Glamis Sand Dunes.... This was my first trip in the Dunes with the JK and I was extremely impressed... Airing down to 12lbs, pulling the J6 fuse (disabling the traction controls & ABS) and running in 4 hi, the Jeep went almost Everywhere with relative ease... Extreme long steep climbs were an issue and going fast through the whoops was not an option, but that didn’t stop me from having a total blast and taking on some big stuff.

    In our group there were 4 XJ’s, 1 WJ, 1 YJ and the JK.... My XJ buddies drive their Jeeps like Ultra 4 Buggys so it’s sometimes hard to keep up... but very entertaining to watch.

    We stopped at “The Swing” to hang out for a bit...

    ... and at “The Flagpole”.... There were actually 2 flags and both had memorial plaques and signs for fallen friends attached at the base.

    At one point we were sitting on one of the highest Dunes that we could see... it literally felt like we were on top of the world.

    At times we felt like we were in our own private Jeep Commercial....

    Can’t go to Glamis without lining up at the Sand Drags and watching everyone show off their rigs.... caught this Jeep dragster Rippin through the Sand.

    There is nothing quite like Glamis.... Another great trip in the books.

    Looks like a good time! 🤙
    I should have pulled that fuse in mine yesterday in the snow, it kept messing with me on a few of the climbs.

    It worked liked a charm... In climbs, surfing the Dunes & Donuts for Days! Put the fuse back in before I hit the pavement and all back to normal.

    I used to spend a lot of time out there. I miss the fun but not the crowds.

    Going on non-holiday weekends helps a little.

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.
