From black to silver.   I traded in my 2011 Wrangler with 72k miles in for a 75th Anniversary Edition 2016 Wrangler.  This go around I will have heated leather seats (no more dog hair in the fabric!!!), touch screen and about 1/3 more horsepower in a newer model.  It was bittersweet to let go of my black beauty but the added horsepower and easy to care for silver color makes it all worthwhile.

Bluegrass at the Lake

 What a great place to camp and canoe to the other side of the lake to see local bluegrass bands like Sizzle Biscuit and Carrie Nation and the Speakeasy.  Time does stand still at the lake.

Bully Hitch Step

I saw this hitch step on a truck and knew I needed one for when I camp. An air mattress in the back makes it really high to get up into. I usually use a folding stool or cooler so this is going to work perfectly. I chose stainless without LED lights.

Mother's Day 2016

On the road with Momma for Mother's Day weekend. There was margaritas and shopping in Santa Fe.
A festival in Taos and a trip out to the Rio Grande Gorge bridge. Early morning driving back home through scenic state parks watching the sun rise above the mountains leaves me missing New Mexico over and over again.

5 Happy Jeep Years

We celebrated five Jeep years by changing out a burnt bulb.  She's out of the dealership service contract but we still have the lifetime power train warranty for as long as she's mine.  Just the other day someone asked me what my dream car would be and I responded -- I have it! Such a feeling of contentment to still have exactly what I want.
