    This looks so awesome! Put me down for a definite maybe pending vacation approval.

    I’d like to bring the family as well since we’ve not been in this area of the country.

    I agree with this. When we were on Poison Spider and Gold Spike, Toyota’s we’re trying to navigate the rocks and shelf’s and destroying their vehicles and holding everybody up. Mostly approach angles and overhang was their problem. Golden Crack really tore them up. Also it’s always good to have a good quality winch, but in most cases there are no trees to winch to, so it has to be another Jeep. We just have to have the right trails for the stock or slightly modded Jeeps, and Jeeps with winches in front of Jeeps without winches on the tougher trails. The Colorado passes won’t be a problem for any stock Jeep IMO.

    We were in Moab last of July. 106-108 couple days. Make sure a/c is working and have plenty water. We had doors and windows out but left top on for shade. Not a big deal if your prepared. Of course I’m used to Alabama Heat and humidity.

    My job offers unlimited PTO as long as it does not conflict with projects, main issue is timing and of course cash. Wife wants us to stop renting and buy a house in 2020 or 2021 so I have to see how I divert money for this. I think the whole separate bank account is sounding pretty good about now.

    It's not like we don't get shitty hot over East in July & August. True, we don't get into the teens, but mid-high 90's with really high humidity for long stretches are normal here. As long as we get early starts we should be
    able to avoid the really hot parts of late afternoon. And even if it is that hot we'll all be having so much goddam fun it won't matter!

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.
