My first real Johnson Valley jeep trip!

I went out this last weekend with some friend for the first time and did some real jeeping and rock crawling. Wow what a load of fun and scared at the same time. I have never owned a jeep or rock crawled!! The first time I do I go with an ex-pro rockcrawler and his crazy jeep. I do not have pictures of the trail that scared the crap out of me but I do know it was somewhere by aftershock. It was an all day trip and a kick in the butt. I should have known better when I see him pack for camping out if we break down.  LOL

I have to say this is an additive hobby and an expensive hobby. But to hear the wife and kids scream and love it at the same time makes it all worthwhile.

I also have to say that when I bought my sport I thought it was a bad idea and I should have gotten the rubi. After this weekend I am very impressed with it and have no regrets. I did learn a lot and do need to spend some more money to get her right but it will come with time.
