POST BY JULIE
I officially became a Jeep Girl and had to buy the merchandise to go along with my new ride. I put it through the ringer. It did get into a fight with a lamp post, rammed into it and got pretty banged up. I swear to this day, I don’t know what happened. I got it fixed and "Baby," (as I called her), was back on the road.
She did manage to get another dent running into a pillar at Dunkin Donuts. Just a friendly warning; don’t put your straw in your cup at the drive-thru until you are at a full stop.
I did have fun with that dent and bought a Wile-E-Coyote sticker, put it in the dent and told everyone he did it.
Baby took Sharon and I to many places and never complained. However, my husband didn’t like how she handled and wanted to trade her in for a Jeep Wrangler. During her light pole incident, Sharon and I drove a baby blue Jeep Wrangler on our Route 66 trip. We just loved how it handled and being high up enough to see over cars.
I have always wanted a Jeep Wrangler, so I wasn’t too sad to trade Baby for Willy. Willy is our 2020 Jeep Willys Wrangler which is Sarge (army green) color with bitchin’ off-road tires.
I have to say, we have just had Willy a year and he has been put to the test of off roading and has performed like a champ. So far we took him rockhounding, urbexing, drove through washes, able to drive on our land and can pull our Tracker in a trailer with ease. We have many more escapades planned for our adventurous jeep and can’t wait.
With the Jeep and Tracker, Sharon and I will be able to seek out many more places we were unable to explore before.
