Kansas Princess

Vacation road trip adventures are a ton of fun, but it's still so nice to cross the border back into my own state, back to what's familar and heartwarming. I had another awesome Jeep adventure with you, Laura!

Santa Fe, NM

I took Edy to the car wash and shammied her off outside our hotel, The Hacienda Hotel & Spa, in Santa Fe. The doorman gave us a special Princess parking spot right in front of the hotel. It's good to be a Jeep Girl in New Mexico!

New Mexico Bound

How thrilling to be able to take Edy on a road trip with my friend, Laura! Remember, she's a Jeep Girl too and the reason why I have my own. Edy caught a ton of bugs and grasshoppers on the windshield and grill traveling through the flat lands of Kansas and the Oklahoma panhandle. The view got much better once we crossed into New Mexico and the curvy, ski mountain roads through Eagle Nest and Angel Fire on our way to Taos.

Design Flaw?

As much as I hate to admit it, I think there is one major problem with my Jeep and that's the vertical angle of the windshield. It's like it takes rocks straight on and in over one year I have 5 chips in my windshield. I called KDOT and they told me they sweep the short stretch of highway I travel on my commute every two weeks - but I find that hard to believe. So, today, I bit the $100 deductible bullet and had Safelite replace my windshield outside my office. The guys told me they do replace a lot of Jeep windshields.

To the Lake

I have one favorite lake I like to go to but each time I pick out different campsite areas for a different camping experience. This time, I took the time to set up the tent but put the air mattress on the ground inside the tent instead of in the back of the Jeep. Just to mix it up a bit. The dogs get to swim and I get to spend an entire day sunbathing. I keep it simple and relaxing.
