JEEP LIFE AND THE GREAT OUTDOORS
"Not all those who wander are lost"
I had the weirdest experience today. So, I check my Facebook and had a message from a guy that moderates a Jeep Facebook page. The guy's message...we will add you to the page again if you stop posting stuff from your website.
These were my first two thoughts. First, wait...I was deleted?? Second, this is a page where Jeepers get together to show their love for the Jeep Life. Shouldn't we all be supporting each other? It seemed odd that because I was the one that wrote something, I couldn't be the one to post it too?
I do this website because I LOVE Jeeps and the stuff I post, I have a passion for. I want to share cool stuff that I find with people that love Jeeps, and share my interests. It's not a business, I'm not selling anything. In fact, that same guy has posted the same stuff or similar stuff that I post about, to that same page. There is a lesson here though.
I was almost hurt by the message. I know I try to welcome all in the Jeep family. I try and help, and share, and just be, at some level...friends with the folks that share love for Jeeps. Is that not how most of us are?
Hmmm...I think the Jeep community is still the greatest group of folks from every walk of life I've met. I never have the opportunity to talk to perfect strangers about a top, or bumper like I do fellow Jeepers. It's just fun!
So, I vote we all enjoy each other and what each of us have to offer.we support each other. We focus on building each other up versus tearing each other down. Remember...we only have one shot at this, and after all it is called the...Jeep Life!
Ok, ok, I'll stop complaining now. :-)
I love the idea of skilled Jeepers taking their love and passion for the trails and sharing it with the new Jeeper that is craving that life. Learning the right things to do on the trail is important, and it's also important the skilled Jeeper takes time to open their arms to all the folks that need a little help.
The Jeep Life is for anyone that wants to live it. The heart and spirit of adventure lies within us all, and new or veteran Jeep owners have commonality...we love our Jeeps and the great outdoors!
This past weekend, I got an invite from a friend to go to a meet and greet for Lost Jeeps SoCal, the Jeep Club he belongs to. I have owned a Jeep since the early 90's and have never been to a meeting, been out on a trail with, or even thought about joining a Jeep Club. No real reason why really, just haven't I suppose.
I have been waiting for these to make it to my door step for months! They are a bit pricy, but I'm going for it. I have high hopes for this new mirror relocation system, so my next stop is...
I saw this post for the first time today actually. A fellow Jeeper shared it on FB. I thought it was so cool, I had to share it with you guys! Check it out and enjoy.
Ok, I'm not saying I would trade in my JK for one or anything...but I would definitely add one of them to my driveway. I really like the Jeep Renegade. They are fun, cool looking, and do the trick on the trails just fine! Check out this test drive.
