New Bumper
20171205-DSC08014.jpg

I picked up a new bumper for the Jeep! It is a Garvin Industries Wilderness bumper. As I write this though I realize that I have actually done several things to the old Jeep in the last few weeks that I haven't posted about. I sold a couple watches that were worth a little bit of money and I put that money back into Jeep. I suppose I should actually do a big update on all the mods here soon. 

In the mean time here is a nice rear end shot on a cool road at sunset. 

Keep exploring my friends.

Bunce School Road

My alarm went off at 3:40am. I had a deadline to meet. I had a made a promise, a promise to myself that I had to keep. 

Life has changed a lot for me over that last couple years. In less than two years I went from being a married 20-something to being a thirty year old father of two. It has been the most amazing 2 years ever and I wouldn't change a thing about it. But one part of my life that has gone away a little bit is my ability to seek adventure. I need adventure in my life. I actually think every man does, it is part of what makes us men. I made a promise to myself that I would again start to seek adventure. 

With that promise I also agreed to myself that I would not sacrifice my role as a husband and father for adventure. It will need to supplement my responsibly and keep me refreshed and recharged to keep being the husband and dad I am called to be. I figured out that the best way to do this is to use the hours of the day that most people don't. So this morning Scott and I loaded up the Jeeps and headed west. 

We originally planned on doing Middle Saint Vrain trail but it was a bit too snow packed for two open-diff Jeeps. We ended up doing Bunce School Road. It was challenging, windy, cold, beautiful, and exactly what I needed. I ended up only getting one good picture. I will document future trips a little better. This was just about getting out into the wild for a little bit. 

Adventure is necessary, especially for men. I am learning to find it where I can. 

My New Rig: 1996 Jeep TJ

Hey guys. I have a huge announcement to make! This is my new exploration rig. I traded my wagon and my Tahoe to my dad and got this 1996 Jeep Wrangler TJ. I have always considered myself a Jeep guy and I have pretty much been missing my Jeep ever since I had to sell my YJ a couple years ago. I am so stoked to have a Jeep again. The TJ has always been my favorite and its even my favorite color. 

As you can see it already has had a lot done to it so I don't really need to make any changes right away. I do have some ideas for future mods and I will as always post them here on the blog. Right now though I am just enjoying it and having fun driving it. I have a feeling this Jeep and I will go on some pretty cool adventures.
