JEEP LIFE AND THE GREAT OUTDOORS
"Not all those who wander are lost"
Ok, first...get your minds out of the gutter! Not that "first time"...come on people! I mean do you remember your first time leaving the pavement and rolling that beautiful, go anywhere anytime, icon of the trail Jeep on to the dirt for some fun? The anxious feeling of getting your first healthy mud bath, or the nerves that turn to all out fear while dropping in so steep you feel what it's like to be up on three wheels for the very first time? Do you remember the tears welling up in your eyes as you felt the scratching underneath the branches as if it were your very own skin pealing off and not just the paint? How about that first time you got stuck?? Well, I do...I LOVE IT ALL!
I love hitting the trail with someone for their first time. The excitement and joy they get from experiencing nature and the way we navigate it. The instant feeling of falling in love with the beautiful mountain ridge lines or desert sunsets. The empowerment from successfully getting from point A to B without breaking down or crashing, it's all so new.
The good news...that never changes! When you drive a Jeep every trip off the grid is like a child waking up on Christmas morning. Every adventure is healing and every exploration brings a zeal to life that can't be matched. When a person buys a Jeep, they quickly realize there is now a new way of living. A way that promotes fun and fulfillment. It's a life of relationships and life experiences. I know it sounds weird, and who knows really...is it that kind of person that buys a Jeep or the Jeep that creates that kind of person, but it doesn't matter really. What does matter is that we keep the culture alive. We keep investing into people, we keep committing our time and lifestyle to the preservation of nature. We refuse to allow this world to take our adventurous spirits and by all means we never stop exploring.
