Every year Jeepers from around the country gather for a weekend of off-road adventure in the Cumberland Gap region. Like last year in Maine, Ruby Jean wanted to join them. Of course, I camped in my new (and constantly improving!) rig.
In this overhead drone shot, you can see the tiny bright orange tent peeking through the morning fog (second from the bathhouse).
The night before we hit the first trails, more than 300(!) Jeeps took over the little town of Williamsburg, Kentucky. Some were stock, others heavily modified. All were unstoppable.
On my way down to the 24th Gateway to the Cumberlands Jeep Jamboree, I took a small detour to camp along Skyline Drive in Shenandoah National Park. It was lovely!
This week me moved 9,600 lbs. of pellets from the roadside down a crazy hillside grade to the back of our deck. Many thanks to Jeep, articulating hitch systems, and the makers of Ibuprofen.
Here’s how things looked at the starting line.
An eerie light was cast during today’s solar eclipse. And unlike some others, we managed to view the event safely.
