    Very cool. Hard to believe that what they went through was just a little over one century ago.

    This is so cool. The fact you can still see the swells from the wagons is amazing.

    I love history. George Santayana said it best...”Those that do not study history are doomed to repeat it”. I love history.

    Part 4 guess, 20:01

    Thanks again for another great video!
    It's a trip that every American should want to make if only so that they can get a glimpse of what it took for this country to become what it is today.

    Glad it was minor.
    I've always been fascinated with the travel west of the wagon trains. Glad you did it, the only thing that would make it better is me doing it..

    LOL - you had to know it was coming

    So amazing how the trail is still visible and some of the markers are still there and haven’t been vandalized.
    The trail is officially a part of the Nation Parks Service and great effort is made by many non-profit groups to help preserve it. It really is nice.

    Hard to believe how much hasn't changed since then or at least, in terms of what the landscape looks like today.

    I think the wagon swales you can still see today is what Cindy and I love the most.

    LOL - I think it was because of it and the fact that we didn't pull into town until 3am that made this day the most memorable.

    And that's what troubles me the most. Not only do so many people not know their history, so many are so eager to erase any and all traces of it and all because they are offended by it.

    What an awesome video yet again. In one part of the video you where looking at the swells from the wagons, it looked like the vegetation still hadn’t fully grown back after all these years. Thank you for sharing next video I’m guessing to be 19:21

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.
