Check out this cool vid. (starring my '99 Wrangler)

Hey guys, Im new to this forum, but definitly not new to the Jeep world. I learned to drive on a '99 Grand Cherokee, and after 2 years of that, I finally bought my first car, a '99 Wrangler Sport.
During our last summer before college, me and a life-long buddy of mine traveled up to the tip of the Keweenaw Peninsula for an "outdoor lover's dream vacation." We hiked, camped out by Lake Superior, fished, hiked, canoed, and of course, did some off-roading in that Jeep of mine. This was my first official off-roading trip, with a stock Jeep (running on 31"s), so no hardcore rock-crawling or anything like that here, sorry. But we sure had a blast, and my friend really put in a ton of effort into editing this video, making it the best it could possibly be. If you have a half-hour to spare, please check out our little adventure; you won't be disapointed. (You might want to watch it in "High Quality" directly on youtube). Feel free to leave me some feedback on what you thought if it. Thanks in advance.

-Mike & (on behalf of) Matt

Great video guys. You should try out Minnesota sometimes. There are tons of lakes and camping there too.

Hardcore or not, that's what it's all about. I wish I would have had a camcorder on our recent trip. Although we didn't canoe camp, we did do a 11 mile paddle on the Potomac. Would have been nice to capture my brother and his new girlfriend going overboard in the tame Good job on the video.

Thats a cool video, the music kinda sounds like this band called Umphrey's McGee. I just started listening to them, they're a good a jam band. I like it though. It goes well with your video
