JEEP LIFE AND THE GREAT OUTDOORS
"Not all those who wander are lost"
Look...of course I didn't mean to bend my tie rod, but hey...sometimes you're going to ruin junk out there! That's why it's important to either have some trail experience or be with some folks that have some trail experience out there. There's nothing like a couple of old school, over 50 year combined off-roaders when it comes to bootlegging a fix on the fly!
The lessons learned here are...
1. Always have some tools and recovery gear when hitting the trails, even if it's going to be an easy day.
2. Learn from the trail vets! These guys have seen and done it all, and off-roading 20 years ago had a lot less conveniences. Chances are...they'll get you home.
AND 3. Always respect the old guys. That generation has been through a lot of life to make ours easier. Always give them the love and respect they deserve.
