    Does driving a Jeep defy laws of physics and time...or does it just seem that way?

    So I take the top of today as I just got back from Vegas and its 85 degrees with not a cloud in sight. I hop in and run a few quick errands (drop stuff at good will, get gas and stop at store). I was gone for maybe 25 minutes, but man it feels like I was gone for hours. Nothing better than the breeze coming through the top, getting envious looks from the sheep stuck in their metal cans and getting many waves from my fellow jeepers. I just love driving this thing!!!

    Hope you all have good weather and a great weekend!

    Driving? Hell, sometimes I just go sit in mine in the garage to feel better. In the summer I've been known to put a camping chair in the back, turn some music on, and "watch" my kids play with the neighborhood kids in the front yard. I get bonus points with the wife for watching the kids and also lower my blood pressure by being in a topless Jeep.

    Thanks. Always nice to come home.

    Jeep by the Ocean trumps. What I wouldn't give....

    But my Hawaii trip is looming on the horizon.

    LOL! Different then what? Different then it would if only sections of it were missing? Why don't you take the top off, go for a ride and let me know how THAT feels, and then I'll let you know if it feels any different.

    Yup! It's a Jeep thing. I must have sat in my Jeep for an hour today in the parking lot at work! I was stress free the rest of the afternoon and before I knew it, it was time to go home.

    Thanks Mike!

    I couldn't agree more with you all. It's definitely therapeutic. Top off, jams blaring and some open road. Heck I'll gladly volunteer for some honey-do's just to get out and cruise. I do wish more So Cali Jeeps waved back tho....

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.
