    Nicely done. You guys are the best. I always say it is building up good guy credits, plus someone put you there for a reason. I have been fortunate to save many in the desert over the years and had to turn in some of my credits last year in Sand Hollow when my side by side broke a front axle and rear drive line 12 miles from camp. Fortunately Gavin took me back to my side by side and help me install a drive line in the field. Now I need to get working on building up credits again.

    Thanks for the great reminder video to always do the right thing.

    Well, being that they had been out there for a while and that AAA was still 3 hours out, I have a feeling their day was definitely improved upon

    Use to go out to the Salt Flats long ago (gulp!) and would usually find someone thinking they could pull off the road and drive on the salt only to get stuck

    It's great to have a Jeep with a winch at the right place and right time, that would've been an expensive short tow!
    Oh yeah, expensive an a very long wait along the highway.

    A great example of the Jeep Wayalife 👍👍👍
    I'm sure all of you would have done the same

Had the same thing happen right across the street from my house. An old last got her Mercedes stuck in the sand trying to turn around. Grabbed a shovel and my welcome mat off my porch. Fortunately is want much work they just need one more person to help push and she was able to get out.
    LOL - too funny and way cool that you were able to help out like that.

    There were a lot of cars that drove by even while we were there. Don't know how many were Jeeps but being that this was on the heels of EJS, there probably were a few.

    Me too! If there wasn't, we could have done more harm than good trying to save them.

    Wow, how'd he get the gas that he needed?

I’m sure there’s a lot of guys like me who’d like to pick your brain.
    I haven't but I suppose that wouldn't be such a bad idea to do.

    That on top of how long they had already been there and how much it would have cost to get them pulled out.

    LOL - they definitely didn't have too much confidence in their car.

    It's always nice to be prepared "just in case" and even nicer to be able to use it to help others out as well.

    Makes we want to buy a JL or JT vs the road machine I've been looking for.
    LOL - that's right! Forgot about that.

    Well, I'd like to think that we were just lucky to be where we were and when we were.

    Oh yeah, I'd hate to think anyone could ever be so busy as to not help out.

    It great you were there to help. Those gals could have been waiting for a long time for an expensive tow. I’m sure they were very grateful.

    You guys know what you’re doing with a winch, and the risk in that particular situation was low, but I would just caution others less experienced that winching can be a very dangerous thing to do. Make sure you know how to use the equipment and, just as importantly, have a good understanding of the forces at work before you get too deeply into a rescue. You don’t want to bring a victim to a victim, either getting yourself stuck or possibly injuring someone.

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.
