COME ON it is time to put up or shut up . . . where's the beef ? Where are those great family camping in the wilderness pictures? RV parks & electrical/water hookups don't count! Camping on the beach, maybe, but in the woods by a river or lake or in the desert or backroads (dirt) of any Public Lands Wilderness or National Park primitive campsite will do ! ! ! Some have "talk some" of your WK2 Summits & Overlands going "where no man has gone before" (sorry Star Trek fans).
This could be a Super "Show & Tell" Time, and just think of all the FREE publicity for JEEP (FCA US) ?
I'm seeing a scene in my mind . . . it's me with my campsite fire aglow near sunset across & up river from me . . . walking back toward the 4x4 Laredo which secures the fire from the prevailing breezes. In hand one 14 inch hatchery rainbow for a late dinner. Coffee will soon be perking . . . it's all so clear (in my mind).
SO what do ya say . . . who's first ?
  • ps; mine will have to wait as I am presently without digital ability or vehicle and the 2017 Laredo I want is not yet available to buy (come July/Aug I hope?).
I work in health care in the road in rural upstate NY ( the sticks of the Adirondack mountains ) usually when the road disappears, and the mud, snow and rock start it happens by surprise and it’s too late to whip out the ole cell phone cause both hands are firmly at 10 and 2 ! ?

Last week Donna and I took over 100 pictures in California's Eastern Sierra Mountains. This one was taken in the Alabama Hills area near Lone Pine. It might be my favorite out of the hundred photos we took.

No actual campsite pics but that's because for me getting there is the fun part

2013 Grand Cherokee Trailhawk 5.7L V8, 2015 JKUR AEV
So awesome. Looks like a Rocky Road black steel rack which I have but without the front windscreen. Where is that from? We have the same '13TH model, but yours has the V8 and more off road prowess with limited slip rear. Am jelly. Wish I had gotten the V8 but they were not going to have one in stock for 2 week. Boo hoo. Since this post is now 4 years old, hope you're still loving on your Jeep GC.

I haven't been to Santiago Peak in several years.
I've only been there twice. Once in October 2019 and once in November 2019. In October we made it 3/4 of the way to the top (locked gate stopped us). In November the gate was open so we (my son and I) went to the top, parked, took pictures and walked around. Open the link below to see some picture from the November trip. I need to delete some picture in there (there are a few duplicates) Overlanding - Saddleback - 11-13-19 - Russinator

The last time I was there I went with a Ham Radio group to do some needed maintenance on a Ham Repeater on the mountain. Almost 20 years ago. Time flys when you locked down.

When it's over we'll all appreciate being free to come and go (as we please) again. There's no doubt in my mind, if I make it there alive, I'll do a lot more trail running.

I had knee replacement surgery on both knees 4 years ago when I was 73 years old. My son had both his knees done about 9 months ago (he was 53 at the time). His recovery time was twice as fast as mine. Knee wise we are both better now days than we've been for the last 10 years. I'm sure your wife will be as happy with her new knees as we are.

She was using a walker, and wearing a knee brace she has progressed to not wearing the knee brace and not using the walker. When they did her right knee she didn't have a lot of problems. After they did her left knee she fell down the day they got her out of bed and tore the meniscus tendon they had to got back in and repair it. So that's why she's just now getting better. We have been dealing with the knee replacements since 2016, long road. Last Thursday was the first time she was able to climb the stairs in our condo without having to stop at each landing she is walking better everyday.
