The first 48 hours

Great... Finally decided on Jeep Grand Cherokee, found a 2012 with 20k miles on it.... Done deal.

Here's how the first 48 hours went....

1) On the way home I hear a huge noise coming from outside of the Jeep. Something is banging. I thought it was the tire - maybe a flat? - but that wasn't it so I keep on going. I get home and discover there is a glass trip piece next to the driver's side window that came off. Outstanding.

2) Unable to get out of the back seats. Turns out there are child proof locks and had to figure that out. Which is how I ended up on this board btw.

3) I know I have fog lights, but can't find the switch to turn them on. Figured it out this morning.

I took the Jeep in to the dealership yesterday, President's day, and they quickly fixed the glass trim piece on the spot free of charge.

So far I'm happy.

Oh, I feel like I might fit in here nicely.

This was last September.... In front of the gate of the Robin Master's estate, which is only a few minutes outside of Honolulu. The fact that I am wearing a Magnum PI shirt is not a coincidence....



And this is me in the tidal pool... No kidding.



Both photos taken by my rock star daughter.
