    Sno*Blind 2019

    It's rare to have any pictures of 'me,' since normally I'm the one taking group pics. So I really appreciated Tom Patterson taking some shots of my wife and I at last month's event in northern-lower Michigan.

    Most of us got to use a snatch strap along the way.

    And, a number of us had a Go at Big Money Hill. Put together a short video from the event.


    Right at the start, watch the previous Jeep sliding backward. Oddly enough, even with some more well-built rigs, we were the only ones to make it up that day. Actually didn't seem that hard. That said, it was so icy last year, one two made it up. Too polished after that. Coming down, more of a controlled skid than anything.

    Cheers,

    Looks like a great snow run.

    Good job on the big hill. You had the right level of commitment to make it up.

    I've been impressed with the BFG All Terrains in snow. They sure beat my worn down MTRs

    Thanks. It was a fun event this year. Starting our 4th season wheeling, I've become much more comfortable with my and Stitch's abilities. Big Money Hill's not as big as it used to be though. Looking at the original slope, that must've been a real bear a few decades ago.

    Agree. BFG T/As have always been a good tire. The KO2s made a good tire even better. For 'my' use, I've been completely satisfied. For sake of discussion, I was at 15PSI on this event.

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.
