When my hunt for a used Wrangler became serious, I spent months researching the market. I knew I wouldn't settle for anything other than a white stick-shift. Whether I wanted an Unlimited or Sport or specifics on trim were left to fate. I began my search in the Tri-Cities, looking at multiple dealers. Then I went online. Then I extended the radius of my search, and headed north to Spokane and south to Hermiston. The few white Jeeps I saw were either brand spanking new, costing $40K, or automatics. I was getting scared. Are white stick-shifts that rare? I thought so.
|N Sunset Road, Benton City|
|Yeah that happened.|
Yesterday, my friend Andrew and I hit the back roads of Horse Heaven Hills outside of Benton City for a mini off-roading adventure. This was my first time learning how to drive on this terrain and I learned low gears are how you do it. I need major training on off roading, so feel free to shoot me some tips & techniques and layman info on lockers and all that cool Rubicon stuff. Can't wait for more adventures, especially in the snow this winter. Thank you Andrew for the great photos! And a big shout out and thank you to Lithia of Tri-Cities for their excellent service. If you're looking for a Jeep, they won't let you leave until you're happy with the deal.
|Fifth the final summit! Mt. Adams August, 2016|
Another cool thing, I did finish summiting all five of our state volcanoes with a topper on Mt. Adams in August. I forgot to blog about it, but here's a cool video I made (CLICK HERE) of our summit. Thank you to my badass group of friends who celebrated at the top with me. Now I need some new goals. Any ideas?
Last word - please give a moment of silence for all the bears going into hibernation. Sleep well guys. ⤲
