    Craziest Obstacle

    I am curious what did it for you. You know that feeling. The Jeep tilts JUST far enough that your hind end gets a good grip on the seat....

    For me it was this trail in Rimrock, Wa. It wasn't the steepest I have been on... It wasn't the most side hill either... But when you put the two together!!!!

    Just after the 4:00 mark in this video...

    Lol. The worst feeling I've had was on the Rubicon. Picked a bad line and my rear passenger tire slid off a rock. Part of it was I wasn't fully awake yet, part of it was when I reached for my winch controller I could feel the Jeep teetering.

    Here's Clearskies taking his sweet time and striking a pose before hooking my winch up. 🙄

    Yep! That would do it!

    It seems like they always take their time when hooking up the winch in those situations... Right as you look down and your leg is shaking holding down the brake... LOL!

    Craziest Obstacle

    For me itís these two obstacles on the same trail.

    Half way through this little notch, the passenger side starts climbing a pretty steep wall while the driver side drop just past a big rock. The correct line is further to the left so you donít lean but I made a mistake. You canít see it from this angle but my rock slider and wheel were leaning hard against this rock as my passenger side front tire lifted. If it wasnít there, Iíd have gone over

    The other is at the end of this same trail, they call it eagles nest for a reason. Itís steep and big. Two ledges that are about 5 feet tall. Once your passenger side starts to climb, it ramps up a third ledge as your drivers side drops. It pretty much a mandatory winch point unless youíre running 40ís or in a buggy.

    Seriously, cool thread. 2 for me.

    This one on t33 was pretty sketchy:

    And this one on Red Cone had some pucker factor:

    This is a trail system that links three together in our west desert. They call it Rattlesnake.

    For me it was metalic guiding up the V notch at the Badlands. Looked at the sky for quite awhile on that one. IMG_0547.JPG

    When Slimebones and I hit Moab Rim, we both walked up the Z turn pretty effortlessly. Coming back down the Z turn though, I just charged ahead and lifted the passenger rear really high when the front end dropped off the last and biggest ledge. That was nearly a brown-pants moment.

About us
ďwayoflifeĒ is a moniker that Iíve 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.
