    Good thing you knew when "not" to hit the brakes!! Rolled right thru it. I can clearly still hear Trisha's scream!

    This one gets me every time at k2 in Mason, Tx
    I see all the other jeeps go though but when you do it in yours you feel like your just gonna lay it over.

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

    That was close. I had a good view from the rear, and you stopped just in time.

    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...

    That looked hairy. Pictures never do it justice.

    Mine was in the snow last weekend. Crossing a side hill section, snow, and the packed part was ice. The rear end slid out of the small ruts and right to the edge of about a 40 foot drop.
    I was able to walk it sideways until it came back on the road.

    Lol. Pictures never do things justice. I should say that that last Calico run got me on Pucker Pass backwards... That was the first time I actually lost my breath.

    Jeez... Was that on Holcomb Valley or another trail up there?

    It was on 3N16 between the horse camp and Crab Flats.

    I drove it going West, and was able to stay in the ruts, as it was a little bit downhill. I had to come back after finding people stranded.
    Going uphill, even a little, was enough to cause me to slip, and I was not locked. I ended up in low, both lockers, and just went for it.

    Then I walked back to the people I was helping, and found out they came a different way, and it was easy.

    That’s pretty steep looking. Am still trying to figure out what area of the park that is. Is it to the right after the checkpoint and down the little hill at entry?

    For me so far is the rattler waterfall climb at SMORR. It didn’t feel too bad although it was pretty steep.

    Yeah, we took 3N16 East past Gold Mountain and went out at the dump station. There were a couple sketchy areas on the shady side of the mountain. I could see that getting scary especially after sundown. Glad you made it out okay. 🍻

    Thanks

    I came in by the dump, and was trying to get to Green Valley Lakes, to get past the closure on 18

    I was 3 miles short of Crab Flats when I found two rigs stranded at a huge wash out. There was a bypass, but icy and way off camber. My imitation Maxtrax worked great for that.

    I helped them past there, and another wash out, but a third one made us turn back.

    I could have made it, and could have drug them, but their rigs would not have been the same.

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.
